Week 2: 142.5 lbs, lost 1.3 lbs from last week

I never thought my job would lead to so many extra calories.  Yet, as I start my diet I've noticed the increased number of unneccessary food that's offered to me.  Working front desk at a hostel has it's perks, but weight gain is not one that I want.  Regardless of what time it is, guest and fellow coworkers are always offering food.  More food than my old office job, which would have standard coffee, bagels, and baked goods.  Instead, the hostel has all these great international travellers who make such interesting food, or even bring deliciously-dangerous packaged goods from their home country.  God it's hard to say no to cute foreigners and their new exotic feeds.

What dawned on me, was that since I started my job in October, I have managed to gain 15 lbs back that I had originally lost.  I gained weight due to my willing effort to eat whatever was offered to me, but also because I worked the weirdest hours.  Working during a time when I normally ate dinner interrupted my schedule to the point where I felt famished.  I'd come home around 10 pm and eat until or even past Midnight.

I'm sad to say it, but I just came home from work about an hour ago...I ate dinner right when I got home, used up all my weight watcher points for the day...it's 11 pm and I'm still eager to eat that bowl of popcorn sitting on my bed (with some tapatio).  I'm not stressed; I just looking forward to unwinding with some popcorn and a movie...some relaxing me time before I go to bed.

On another note that kinda relates to the subject:  I really wanted to blog what I read in my weight watcher's journal yesterday.

It said "Make a list of five non-food ways to deal with your feelings."

My five non-food ways to deal with my emo feelings:
1) Read or play video games.
2) Journal, blog, or talk to a friend.
3) Take a walk or exercise.
4) Paint nails or style hair.
5) Clean out my room or reorganize things.
