Hello Hive, my name is Tinylittlebird, and I am a compulsive eater.
Over time, my compulsive eating got the best of me, and my tiny 5ft 3/4inch frame was holding 170lbs. I was not in a good place, and I vowed to do something about it.
(Pre-Weight Loss… not pretty)
I went to WW, I lost 30lbs, and I worked out more and felt good about myself.
(Post-Weight Loss… HOORAY!)
However, I wasn’t perfect. I bought the WW snacks and ate them like they were going out of style. I afforded myself at least 1 point a day for their 1 point ice cream bars…. it is true.. I love sugar.
So all was well and good until I started an internship doing visual display work for Anthropologie. I hung out in the back art room for 8 weeks on my feet, and then at lunch I would go out and get tasty food… whatever I wanted.
Do you know what happened? I didn’t gain weight. I stayed just where I was. I was working so hard and standing so long that I managed to maintain my weight. Yay!
Until it ended.
Since August, I have gained back almost 10 lbs. I have been stress eating, allowing myself to have soda and cupcakes and regular ice cream and chips… the whole shebang. I haven’t measured or weighed or portion controlled anything.
And then today, my dress came in.
I’m terrified that I’m going to try it on this weekend and it won’t fit. Truly, I am worried. I ordered my dress 4 months ago, and I am sure that at least 5lbs were put on since they measured me for my dress.
(Ordering my dress 4 months ago…. will it fit?)
So, this is my confession- I need to get a handle on my eating, and I need to work out-regularly- again.
If any other bees have the same problems I do, I feel for you, and I totally have your back.
