Like most people I know why I’m overweight. For some of us it’s more convenient to get take away food or eat out, some of us crave sweets or crisps or fizzy drinks. Most of us know what causes us to be overweight.
For me… I comfort eat.
A stressful day at work I turn to ice cream, a fight getting the kids to go to bed and I “need” a biscuit. So I need to learn new ways to cope with stress.
There’s a book I’ve had on my Amazon wish list for months that my husband just bought me. It’s called Adore Yourself Slim (Adore Yourself Slim on Amazon). It seems to focus on learning to love who you are before you begin, dealing with stress eating, creating exercise habits and a whole host of other things.
So far I’ve made it to page 9. On this page I’ve to write down ten things I adore about myself. Personality not looks.
I got to that page around two and a half days ago and I’ve managed to find one thing to put on my list.
I think I see where my problem is!
This book was meant to be my pre diet prep. I think I had underestimated how dented my self esteem really is. But first impressions, this book may be just what I need. I’ll write a full review if I ever manage to get past page 9!
All the best for 2014 x
