Fat Ass Friday - The Inauguration

I hear you guys already. Yes, I'm back on the weight loss bandwagon...again. My new blog friend, Brandy, hosts FAF each week and I'm signing on for some motivation because I like her style.
So, I had an eye opening visit with my Wii this morning. Let's recap.
It told me that my last visit was 372 days ago. Sheesh. And it said it with a snarky tone too. What a jerk.
It then told me that since my last visit, I've gained 8.6 lbs. Wow. I suppose I shouldn't be TOO surprised, seeing as I've been sustaining the payroll at my local Panera Bread for at least a year now. As a matter of fact, I have a lovely Asiago Cheese bagel (or 2) toasting in the oven right now. But I digress...
I've noticed that over the past few months, I've really started becoming an emotional eater. If I'm upset or stressed, I've been turning to food to self-soothe A LOT. Obviously. And unfortunately, I've had a lot to be upset and stressed about, which has given me ample opportunities to stuff my face.
So, today begins a new journey where I'm going to try to figure out new ways to deal with my issues. I have to stop using food as a filler because the only thing it's filling is a larger jean size (very soon if I don't stop now).
Starting Weight: 222.7
Goals for this week:
1. Drink 4 glasses of water each day
2. Get in 2 workouts
3. Only eat out twice

You are awesome!!!! Thank you so much for linking up! I like your goals for this week. I think listing them out will help keep you accountable. Eating out is a big downfall for me.

YAY! You can do it!

You can do it! Great job setting goals for the week and just remember to take baby steps!

I dread finding out how much of this baby weight is actually not baby, LOL. We'll see how I do, but in the meantime it's not slowing down my M&M, Cadbury Mini Eggs or Dove Chocolates consumption one bit. Sigh.

So. I was curious to see what the Wii had to say about me. 179 days, 4lbs lost. Hmph.

Have you ordered that watch-thingy yet? I grabbed the deal but have not ordered it. But I'm thinking this will be just the motivation we need!

Whoo Hoo! Welcome to FAF! Nothing wrong with getting on the bandwagon again, I think most people have been on it a few times. You can do it!
I'm totally an emotional eater. My sister stops eating when she's stressed or upset...I stuff my face. It's one of those things I really wish we had in common.
Good luck with the water. I have a major problem finishing the 8 servings I'm supposed to finish. It's so much easier when it's hot out.
