Bad Habit

Food is not a crutch.

Food is not a crutch.

FOOD IS NOT A CRUTCH!

If I just keep saying it,  maybe I will stop trying to eat every sweet thing in sight. I had an extremely aggravating day at work; complicated recursion problems entangled with a glaring overuse of global variables. If that sentence made no sense to you, just go with I'm really annoyed at the person who wrote this code because it is a gigantic disorganized mess. And I can't stand gigantic disorganized messes. I just can't. It makes me want to tear my hair out and/or eat lots of sweet treats.

I always thought I wasn't an emotional eater when I was losing the weight. I stupidly believed that because I didn't want to eat when I was sad, that meant I wasn't eating my emotions. I'm obviously an oblivious idiot sometimes. Frustration definitely qualifies as an emotion and it's the one I know drives me to the cookie jar...and the candy jar...and the chocolate peanut butter container.

I guess I'm sharing this right now because even though I've been pretty successful at maintaining my loss long term, it's always a challenge.
