@MrsTimmy:  Wow, you should be so proud of yourself! 64 pounds is really impressive!

Don’t feel guilty or beat yourself up for slipping a little bit. It happens. No one’s perfect, and everyone messes up from time to time. Just put it behind you and keep moving. Today’s a new day! Focus on all the good stuff in your life (you’ve lost all this weight, you’re going to see your Fiance soon, you’re going to make it through this project and be proud of doing a good job under adverse circumstances). I think you sound really tough!

Do something for yourself to relieve stress and reward yourself! Go get a massage or a mani-pedi or buy a new dress to show off your new figure! Or just call someone you love and talk for a while!

Hang in there!

I can totally relate to your post.

I am also a HUGE emotional eater… and the past few months have been a struggle. Unlike you, I only lost 19 pounds- but they are pounds I DO NOT want to ever see again!   I noticed that near the end of February (after some drama happened with my dad) that I gained back 3 pounds…  not acceptable. 

In order to regain some control, I have adopted five simple rules that helped me lose the 3 pounds, plus 2 more for a total of 21 pounds:

– Water- a lot of it- 1/2 my body weight in ounces everyday (this has helped my skin to clear and also helps to curb my eating at night

– no fries – me gust las papas fritas! but they don’t love me or my hips!

– I get one (only ONE) chocolate goodie per day – I usually have it after lunch ๐Ÿ™‚

– no car eating- I noticed that I stay away from drive up/ fast food things if I follow this rule

– 3 servings of fruit and 3 servings of veggies a day- everyday

What have you done to lose your 64 pounds OP?  You should be SO proud of yourself!

Congratulations on losing 64 lbs!!!  ๐Ÿ™‚  I’ve  been yo-yo ing  my entire engagement – I’d lose 30lbs, and gain 10 back.  I am also an emotional eater, so, I can totally relate. 

Just take it one day at a time.  Somedays, *stuff* will happen & you have no control over it.  Just realize you’re a wonderful human being and take control of the next day.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I carry a pocket sized calendar in my purse to jot down (or draw) how I feel about the day.  I’m not a writer, but, it feels good to get the word that describes how I feel down a page.

@MrsTimmy:  No fingers crossed. You CAN and you WILL get back under control.

I fell off the wagon Sunday….and I’m bloated today STILL from it. Had a big brunch (I mean BIG) and an ice cream sundae.

You got back on track the moment you noticed yourself OFF track.

You got this ๐Ÿ™‚

you know what, i LAUGHED when i read the title because it sounds like me EVERYDAY. i can’t even lose 1 pound. Then I read the post and just got kind of sad. 1. You’ve done a GREAT JOB losing 64 pounds! 64 FREAKING POUNDS! that’s gotta be what? 6 sizes??? give yourself a pat on the back and treat yourself to a cookie and a beer once in awhile. 2. Stress does a hell of a job on your face. STOP IT. Sure, you’ll be skinny at your wedding. but do you want a healthy glow and a body that wont stop or just look sickly. you’re choice. 3. The ex is looking for attention. IGNORE AND BLOCK (both you and your fiance) and move on with your day. she’s a NON FACTOR.
