She stuffed them in her mouth all at once.
It was so sad.”
When I first moved to the Seattle area, I lived alone. Technically, I had a roommate, but she was in the police academy and would often stay there. I worked in a newsroom as a lowly copy editor and didn’t make very much money. So, there’s my excuse for what I am about to tell you.
For dinner, I sometimes had a fishbowl-sized glass of red wine and half a loaf of French bread.
You probably will not be surprised to learn I put on about 50 pounds my first year in the real-world. That was basically when I started really being overweight. I had been active through my school years, but I was totally lost out on my own.
I know I’ve had many poor eating choices, but that one sticks out in my mind. It was the start of some really unhealthy habits and it makes me sad and ashamed when I think about it.
So, here’s your challenge this week: CONFESS! What was your worst eating moment? Post your story on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, share it in the comments section below.
Want to join us in the Summer of Weight Loss? Here are the past challenges, in case you want to catch up:
Take before pictures (front and side)
Pick a weigh-in day
Take your measurements
And don’t forget to send me an e-mail to let me know you want in! (kerrie at sanitydepartment dot com)
Some SOWL Housekeeping:
-Produce Love Challenge: Did you do it? I’m behind, but I did get to a new fruit. Read about it here.
-Originally, I had planned on posting your weight each week here at MvM, but that is virtually impossible for me to keep up with (a very good thing, indeed). I love getting updates from you, though, so please keep e-mailing me about your progress! I just won’t be posting it – I’ll leave that up to you, since most of you have blogs.
Don’t forget to visit each other and motivate!
