Bit the bullet and joined :)

Postby ToGlow » Wed Dec 15, 2010 8:11 pm

Hi all,

Well as the topic title suggest I finally bit the bullet and joined the forum. :D

I've been "lurking" for a little bit and feel so inspired by everyone’s success, determination and strength of courage. I too want to be one of the lucky ones to succeed with my weight loss. For me my biggest downfall is emotional eating. I eat when I am stressed, anxious, worried, actually when I'm feeling any "negative emotion". Food doesn't help the issue it just perpetuates it. I want to beat this and I want to GLOW from the inside out.

My goal is to lose 5kgs (which will get me to an acceptable BMI), firm and tighten my arms and thighs and just get back into the groove of loving exercise and looking after myself.

I hope to come on here and be honest not just with myself but with everyone else who is also facing the battle of the bulge.

Thanks for reading my intro note.

Cheers,
To Glow :D

Welcome from me too!

I think many of us are familiar with the emotional eating. I remember not so long ago eating a large packet of potato chips, and because it did nothing for the stress I opened and finished a second bag. We do it even though it give us the relief we need - how stupid are we? :oops:

All the best for your weight loss goals

that dam emotional eating is a killer! lots of us deal with emotional eating, like me! im bad because i cant stop at one, but at the moment the guilt is always over me if i do, so i will look in the pantry, and think about what i really need (not even consciously anymore) and actually think am i really hungry (9 times out of 10 the answer is no) so i usually end up leaving the kitchen with nothing!! so those emotional eating habits can start to subside!
