Well, folks the first week of Shrinkvivor is complete.
Here are my stats:
Starting Weight: 184.6
Week #1 Weight: 182.4
Loss: 2.2 lbs.
I’m very happy with my loss this week. Things got a little hairy with some stress eating (more on that in a second), and I didn’t exercise as much as I wanted to, or should have. Part of it was due to my biopsy (more on that, too, in a second). The challenge this week was to log as many exercise minutes as possible. I managed a dismal 66. But it’s better than nothing. And I plan on improving on that number this week.
I finally gave in and called the Dr. today because I hadn’t heard anything about the results of my biopsy, and I was getting a little (a lot) antsy. Thankfully, the results showed no cancer. NO CANCER! I do have Fibroadenoma (basically, benign lumps). I’m so relieved!
Maybe now I can stop stress eating. I really need to develop other coping mechanisms aside from eating. Because I’m with The Kid, or at work (teaching), I can’t always stop to exercise or meditate, or anything like that. I’m finding that my worst times are when I’m stressed and driving. Those days, I tend to stop at a fast-food place. Not good. Not healthy.
So, what do you do when you’re stressed/depressed/angry/happy and you want to eat? I’d appreciate any advice!
