After creating an entry on 5/15 about how I've lost 40 lbs. and how happy I am with the way things are going, I am suddenly struggling. Emotional eating has gotten the best of me. I got back on track on Thursday (two days ago), but then yesterday I went crazy again. Today I feel more on track and ready to focus. I think I will have to revisit and possibly redefine my goals.
I think that part of the problem is that I start back to work on Monday. I have been unemployed for about two months, and prior to that, for the last year I have been working pretty much from home. Now I am going back to an office. I am looking forward to it in a lot of ways (and I am definitely looking forward to being employed again), but of course there is some anxiety. I also realize that it will become more of a challenge to stay on track with my program, especially the exercise component.
In spite of this, I feel that I have come too far to stop now. If anyone wants to comment about this (or to send a Spark Mail), I thank you in advance.
