    Foo, it's totally your breakfast. If I weigh before breakfast then again after I always weigh more!

    I started monitoring my BF% in October. I started out at 36% and have reduced to 33.1% as of 1/1/21.
    I LOVE that you check this, too! My goal is 26% by my birthday in September.

    Yes!!! I've learned that the number on the scale can vastly change. I'm more concerned about increasing muscle and decreasing Body Fat. The number on the scale will eventually catch up!

    You can make 26% by September!! You got this!!

    Good news... I came back to work from being remote teaching, and my colleague asked, "did you lose weight?" I was so happy inside- even though it's only 8 pounds, it made me even more motivated.

    That is so awesome!! 8 lbs is a lot

    @RubyRed427 Awesome results! I weigh in tomorrow.
    My Monday No Alcohol Gin arrived today. When I checked the label I was thrilled to see it has ZERO calories. Of course, the tonic water does ( I don't like the diet). So I'm having my alcohol free happy hour and feeling pretty good about things. Having a light supper (soup, half a sandwich, a lean cuisine etc) seems to be working out well. I realize I am not as hungry at night as I thought I was when I was making big dinners.

    Zero calories! Always a good thing. Yes, light supper is the way people used to eat and we probably should go back to ....
    Sounds like you're on the right track!

    I have stress eaten all week. Garbage!!! Over the course of 3 days, I have eaten an entire package of cookie dough. The good thing is.... it's gone now. The bad thing is - somewhere in the neighborhood of 2100 calories.

    Time to figure out my stress eating as stress will ALWAYS be a part of life!!

    So interesting that I came on here to comment about my couple of days of feeding my emotions and your post above was the first that came up on my screen...I HEAR you loud & clear. I am sitting here right now having just eaten a late lunch and trying to figure out the max calories I can have today without blowing another day's good intentions out the window and it hit me that this is exactly what I am doing ~ stress eating ~ and then wondering why and THEN figuring it is likely the stress of another restrictive move by our provincial government that has gone from another lockdown to putting our entire province into a 2nd state of emergency which will affect my work once again. Don't get me started!!!!!

    Anyhoo, that is part of it, but most of it is the lack of sense that all of these restrictions makes when it is NOT working...The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over expecting a different result!!

    SO, I cannot control that situation cause I have no say. What I need to do now that I have figured out what is fueling my emotional appetite is think of ways to address the stress I am feeling....THE PLAN is to do a 10 minute meditation as soon as I write this, THEN get in a hot tub and read some more of my current novel on the go. Good starting point...I also have a jigsaw puzzle newly started that will provide a good distraction for me.

    That's my plan. When you figure out what is triggering you I'd love if you would share with us and your plan for redirecting yourself.

    Thank you for sharing your struggle...it is such a great help to hear your challenge with emotional eating.

    Hugs to you! The goods news...you recognize that its stress eating. Now you can move forward with a plan and by the sounds of it, you have one!
