new thinking

Monday, October 03, 2011

Yesterday, I went to two events where food was served. I made good choices, had moderate portions, substituted fruit for a dessert, chose to eat dessert at the second event, went over my calorie range. BUT - the good news is: I did not eat compulsively, I chose not to eat a few things that didn't fit my goals, I did choose to eat dessert,'s the best part...I realize I don't have to feel guilty if I choose to eat more once in awhile! I am not a bad person if I eat more, I don't have to feel ashamed, I can simply enjoy the choice I made for that day to eat more than usual. It's OK! It doesn't mean I'm a failure or that I should just give up. I can just smile, remembering a pleasant day, and resume my program today, choosing foods on the low end of my calorie range.

I raised my daily calorie count slightly to take my vitamins & supplements into account. I'm wondering if I'm not getting enough of something; my energy level hasn't been as good as I'd like. I'll try the few extra calories this week and see how I feel. I'm so pleased that I've stuck with the plan!

    My own comment: I am feeling better after adding a few extra calories. Too few is not good. Dear me; whenever have I been concerned about getting too few calories??? emoticon

I am worth it!

I just won 500 SparkPoints! And what is my reaction? "I don't deserve this." I had been out for dinner, made much better choices than I would have if I were not on SparkPeople, though my calorie count was higher than usual. I needed this perk to remind me not to feel guilty about being imperfect. Thank you, SparkPeople!


Too much SparkPeople?

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

One month and four days of success! Today's goal is to keep track of how much time I'm spending on SparkPeople; I don't want to swap one compulsive activity for another. I'm finding the site so interesting that I could spend hours reading articles, etc.
