I am feeling really depressed about my weight which makes me want to eat junk all the time.
Eating is how I deal with stress, and I am feeling really stressed out right now. I feel like I need to talk some things out but don't have anyone to talk to. I know HOW to lose weight, that part is easy. It's just a matter of choosing to do the things I need to do every minute of every day. Like choosing to put down the cookie, to exercise, drink more water, etc.
When I feel down I don't feel like choosing the right things.
My little guy is 2 1/2 months now and I still don't feel like myself.
I have always struggled with my weight but before this pg and my m/c last nov. I was feeling really good about myself, I felt like I had things under control. Everything is hitting me now, I don't think I ever really dealt w/the emotions about my m/c and there are other things I just feel overwhelmed about. Should I deal w/this stuff in another forum?
I just feel like it is too hard. I don't even know where to start.

Now this is easier said than done, but if your eating a lot of high sugar foods, that could be why your not losing pounds. I know for myself my softspot is for sweets!!! And now that it's the holidays...yum!!! But I figure, that at least I'm not gaining.

I like that her workouts are 15-20 minutes but they're effective. I've done a couple of them and I do feel the burn in just those few minutes, which, let's face it, is all I can steal most days. Next week consistency is the goal, though, and I'm sure I'll feel lots of burn at that point.
