Why, or why does my mood get determined by that damn number on the scale?! I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing...eating what I'm supposed to be eating. Not cheating...at all...I know plateaus happen. I know I can't lose every single day. I know I need to stay away from the scale and only weigh like once a week...So why do I punish myself?!
Yesterday was our first day back at work...today we'll try it with students! I'm afraid of emotional/stress eating and wasn't able to sleep last night. All summer I've stuck to my guns and done great with my eating...no snacking, no hunger between meals, even...yesterday, all day long, I thought I was hungry. And of course, being the first day back, there were tons of bad things there I could have had. I went to lunch and had salad, using just balsamic vinegar and stayed away from the cookies, candies and 100 grand bars given out. I had dinner before 7, like I'm supposed to, and nothing after dinner...then went to bed and couldn't sleep!
Today I'm hoping I'll be so busy I won't have time to think about food and imagine that I'm hungry. And go do my 5 miles right after work, making it nearly dinner time upon return...then just from dinner until bedtime to fight it off...I can do it!!!!
