Munchies all day long

I had one of those days where I just wanted to eat all day long.

I am still counting points, so I wasn't going over; technically I was just using my weekly points. I never used to use those, but hey, they're there for a reason, right? I won't use all of them every week...

I know it's me being stressed or feeling down or being in a funk. Whatever you want to call it. I need to reread the Geneen Roth books on emotional eating.

I feel like I can't get a job to save my life these days. I either don't have enough experience for the jobs I want, I'm overqualified for the jobs I would settle on, and don't have recent enough customer service experience to get the retail/ food service jobs. What the hell?!?

I mostly feel helpless, which is the worst feeling because I don't know what to do to change things. My last post was all about how you choose what your life is like, which I definitely believe, but what about when you are trying and nothing is coming together?

I am doing good with working out and staying on track with the eating. But I'm struggling with everything else. I know I need to be more positive, but lately it's hard.

I hate those days! I really struggle staying on track with days like that!

Don't give up. You'll find a job to support you, andeventually even a job you like. (Not being qualified never stopped me. And it shouldn't stop you, either. ^^ )

Getting a job can be really, really hard. It can take some time. Hang in there and it will all work out!

Never settle, it will make you more miserable. Stay positive and everything will fall into place....

If this dieting lark was easy, none of us would either be fat, nor be blogging about it. You are one of those who knows it's hard, who has hard days like this...but who works through it..and who succeeds despite the facts its hard. Doesn't blogging about it help though when its you..knowing other people understand, and care
I do!
