Monday morning

Well I weighed in at my weight loss challenge and I gained 2 lbs this week. With all of the alcohol and the extra eating at the bar late at night and the lack of exercise this week, I am not surprised. I started the week very well but I got very depressed and down about my life and had trouble looking at the bright spots. I went on a binge in many ways, I gambled a lot and got lucky I didn't lose much. I went to the bar many times, Thursday - Sunday. I went to an asian massage parlor, helps a little but not much.
At the weight loss challenge, after the challenge, a few of them came over to my house to get some herbalife products and we talked a bit and they made me feel better. Essentially they said you have soo much too offer, don't give up and keep your chin up. I mentioned how my biggest struggle with losing weight is my emotions, wheather you like them or not, the herbalife products really help control my appetite a lot, but my emotions still get in the way a lot. If I am depressed about relationships, my business, my job as a casino dealer etc., I binge by drinking, eating, gambling and sleeping and ignorning life. That is why I haven't blogged in a few days.
On a side not, I joined www.eharmony.com, lets see how is pans out for me. I paid for three months.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I will go to all of your blogs when I start feeling a little better and more motivated. I love reading them, but depression kills everyhing.

You hit the nail on the head about the products. Just like with anything, whether it is Lean Cuisine, Zone bars, FullBars, Herbal life - those are all tools to help you achieve your goals, not the answer in and among themselves. They don't do anything for the emotional side. Good for you on recognizing that!

Hope you feel better soon!

Sorry you've been having a rough time lately.. we all have ups and downs, and learning how to do deal with them without using food to console yourself is the hard part. You can do it though! Good luck with eharmony! I met my boyfriend on yahoo personals.. it is definitely better than hookin up at a bar! LOL

I had a bad day! I had a gourmet burger at Red Robin today!

I'm having second thought about having weight loss surgery. I have my last nutrition class tomorrow. Not sure what I want to do....

Have a good night.

It's good you're getting out and about. You'll find someone eventually. Try and concentrate on all the positives around you, because there are a lot in your life.

I hope you have a fun and happy day. :)

I have single friends who find on line date a lot better than trying to meet them at clubs or bars.

Hope you're feeling better and I totally understand how emotions can lead binge eating, since I struggle with that too.

Hang in there!

You know that commercial on TV that says 'who does depression hurt?' Well, it hurts all your friends as well as yourself. We all want you happy and healthy. If my fingers didn't hurt so darn bad I'd cross them for a perfect match for you on eharmony!
