If it weren’t for emotional/stress eating I’d be healthy as can be, but unfortunately junk food (hello, chocolate!) is my biggest comfort and I will totally own up to that.
Over the next 8 days (starting tomorrow – next Wednesday; the day before Thanksgiving) I’m taking the No Junk Food Challenge.
Anyone who would like to join me is more than welcome and I encourage you to!
When I’m on my “normal” journey, I can usually eat these things in moderation and still lose weight (with a slip-up once in a while) and continue on my journey, but lately, things are different. I’ve been unable to practice my self-control and willpower due to my habitual stress eating, so I’m taking the next step.
Over the next 8 days, I’m cutting these things from my diet. I have been unable to go along with “It’s not that I can’t eat it, but I don’t want to,” because let’s face it… I do want to eat and I’m going to.
It’s a struggle that I think many of us understand all too well.
I know myself well enough to know that it’s time to say “I can’t eat that right now” and walk away. I need a little reset. I’m hoping by completing this challenge for the next 8 days, I can gain a new outlook on my journey and get myself back on track.
Besides, cutting the extra processed food definitely couldn’t hurt!
