Yo-Yo Weight----Can't keep control
I'm having trouble sticking to an eating plan. I'm a 23 year old female, 5'3 and I weigh 120lbs, my measurements are 36-26-36. My whole life I've been really active, but I've always had trouble keeping control of my eating. I would say I'm an emotional eater (boredom, stress, etc). One month ago I lost 10lbs in 2 and 1/2 weeks. I wasn't starving myself or anything I was just running 6km/day and eating a healthy 1800-2000 calories a day. I always seem to give into my cravings and then I fell off my eating right plan and I just lost control of my eating habits. I swear I gained the 10lbs back in less than a week. Well, now I feel HUGE and I feel like a total failure. I know that it can't be good for my body to be going up and down in weight like that. How can I get control of my eating and how many calories a day should I be eating to lose weight, because now I can't run everyday. I'm terrified if I don't get my body where I want it to be now, I'll never reach it later in life, because it's only going to get harder the older I get.
