0/3 pass days used.
Still in Florida. Hiked a half mile in the woods to dive a spring. That cavern swallowed up all light. I thought I had gotten over my fear of the dark.... Nope this place brought that all back 42 ft down and my light did not illuminate the walls or anything. It was a black void. I swam up to the only thing my light touched which was a ledge at 40 ft. My husband realized he lost the wall and me at 53 ft. I could see him but he couldn't see me. He did the same thing I did he swam toward the surface. I couldn't believe it but it was too dark for him, too. So I don't feel bad about myself for tapping out.
Nsv, in years past I wouldn't have made the hike with my gear. Also my wet suit is actually getting easier to get on.
One more day in my happy place.

Pass days used - 6What were or are your reasons to overeat? and how have you or how do you plan to combat your over eating behaviours?
I was a very athletic kid - in every sport under the sun and active every day of the week. I also ate poorly - I remember stopping at Burger King on the way to gymnastics. There were reasons for this - my dad was doing long haul truck driving at the time and my Mom was working and trying to get her kids to all the activities. We ate lots of processed convenience foods but I was burning so many calories I was remaining very fit.
Fast forward to my teen years and a move cross country and I was dealing with lots of anxiety and my sports had slowed down. I still however had my love for food. I can remember buying a 6 pack of grocery store cinnamon buns on my break at work and just eating... there was never enough food for me. I loved the feeling of being full. I ate for any reason - happy, sad, joy, sadness. Food was a friend.
There is a lot of obesity in my family. I would say there is a propensity for it, but what's the reason really? I know I had bad habits and I was eating for a level of activity I was no longer doing. I come from a family that likes to eat and there was always a lot of encouragement to do so.
Anyway, I've had times of dieting but mostly I've just been eating and accepting I was always going to be overweight.
The way I combat it now is just being solid with myself that I have an eating budget of calories and I'm not to exceed it. It's just the way life is now. I have worked too hard to let that go. I NEVER thought in a million years I could lose over 100 pounds and sheer stubbornness is going to ensure I never let myself gain it back
