weighing in on the matter

It's been awhile since I've blogged about my weight and my continual struggle to reconcile the vision I have in my mind with what I actually look like. Living in this lighter body has not made me feel thinner. I still struggle with the same issues as when I was 30 lbs. heavier. Fat days when jeans fit tight, when I am bored or stressed-I overeat, and when I just forget that I have to take care of myself-I eat.

However, I am more conscious of not using food to mask feelings. It doesn't make a problem go away when I engage in emotional eating. I have to repeat to myself that I should eat only when I'm hungry. No other reason. This helps to write this out. I'm not sure where all this talk is getting me-it just helps.
