My Setback Of A 8 Pound Weight Gain From Emotional Eating
Having been on a weight loss journey it’s never a surprize when I have a set back especially because I know I haven’t been eating clean or exercising like I should. Since January I have been on a “eat whatever I want” diet. That means sugar intake through honey, brown sugar, cake, cookies and alcohol. I have had negative fat and carb intake through foods like rice, mac and cheese, white bread, pancakes, waffles, Wendy’s, McDonald and comfort foods I love but have avoided eating at all cost.
Some days were an indulgence and other days a binge. I have begun to emotionally eat again and now is confession time because changes need to be made. What I have learned on my weight loss journey is I must constantly love and take care of myself. Any imbalance of emotional, physical and financial factors in my life will show up on the scale. When I am not centered I lose course and the snowball of bad decision from what I put in my body to how I spend my time take effect.
So here I am 8 pounds heavier and feeling totally disappointed with myself. My goal by now was to at least have a flat stomach but instead I have a muffin top spilling over my jeans.
You know who isn’t perfect? ME 🙋🏽I am having the worst set back as I have gained weight like Gang busters over the last couple of weeks. Though it came from a solid 3 months of terrible eating this did not happen overnight. I am gonna weigh myself by tomorrow to see the damage and you will here about it all on the blog.

After looking back at my photos from the Living With Heart Yoga Workshop I thought to myself it’s time to face my life head on. That day was a great day to reset and it did open up my awareness to the changes I had to make.
My love life, finances and career is not where I want it to be at nearly 37 years old, just 3 years away from 40! Every time I settle into a life of mediocrity and excuses it leads to a downward spiral I have to pull myself out of. With the knowledge and free resources I have I will be on a quest to stop being insane! Insanity= Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
So here we go… going through the same thing.Positive affirmation: This weight will come back off and my life will be different. Click To Tweet
