Ok, so this is my second go at losing and KEEPING this extra weight off! Last year I lost weight healthily and got down to my goal weight/size, but THIS year, I've been lacking motivation to work out and eat healthily...Well, what's really been going on is a LOT of emotional binge eating.
My mom had a brain aneurysm that ruptured in April of this year, and she nearly died..When that happened, I started eating myself sick to deal with the stress and anxiety...My mom is doing GREAT and recovering slowly, so there's good news! Yay!
It's just lately I've been feeling like a complete failure at maintaining my weight, and I'm sick of feeling like I've done all of this work for nothing..just to end up where I started last year..So, I'm starting over for the second time, and hopefully, I'll be able to get this emotional eating under control so that I can feel comfortable/confident like I did last year.
