This post was meant to be posted yesterday.

Well, after two days, I've lost that extra 1.6 pounds. Now I have an even 30 pounds to lose.

What I've learned so far: I eat when I am bored, frustrated, or mad. Surprise, surprise. Eating is my comfort. So, how do I solve this? When I have free time and am bored, I need to find something productive to do, like scrapbooking or blogging or running. When I am frustrated or mad, I need to journal about my feelings and drink a glass of water.

Goal for the week: When I am feeling the need to eat when I am not hungry, I will identify the feeling and find a non-eating activity to do instead of eating.

Congratulations, Robyn! I'm (still) working on my own weight loss journey.. very slowly. There's a website I've used for a long time that can be a really great resource for food information, recipies, and general support called (dottie's weight loss zone)that I'd like to refer you to if you don't already know about it... maybe it will help in some small way, but it sounds like you're on the right track. We miss you guys a lot down here in Oceanside, and I hope we'll get a chance to see you guys soon.
