I need help! So Many Roadblocks!
I have been up and down in weight since my DD was born in 2005. I have done well, then fallen off the wagon, so to speak. I've been from 125lb pre-preg) to 185lb(9mos preg) and everywhere in between. MY goal weight is 130lb. LoseIt! .com was the only thing I found to be successful in continuous weight loss. Until I hit a plateau. I tried different things to get out of the funk, and eventually found myself cheating, then losing myself to food again.
I can't tell if it's because I LOVE food and find it comforting or because I quit smoking when I got pregnant and never filled the void it left. I can't figure out what my triggers are to binge eat, other than time of day, or if it's depression or bordom!
I feel my roadblocks are:
food addiction - lack of will power - LAME - something I really want to overcome
Money - I really love to eat healthy foods, but I can't always afford to shop at the health food stores, and/or by special diet type foods just for me. I have to make sure my daughter eats healthy before me.
Time - between full time work, full time mom and everything in between, I don't have a lot of time to exercise without comprimising sleep. I do walk to work when I can, though. We live in the mountains, nearest Gym is 20mins away. I also don't have time to make big production dinners every night.
Husband: not as big deal, but every time I try to diet he kind of belittles it, like it's not improtant. Or he'll make something I can't eat and get offended if I don't eat much. I talked to him about getting a treadmill and he won't hear of it.
ability - I am not the greatest cook, not bad, but it doesnt come natural to me, I wasn't given that knowledge growing up. I have learned so much though, but it's not my strong suit.
I know I need to do this for my health, by mind and my daughter! I want to set a good example for her. I just need help!
