Ever since our Thanksgiving dinner (Canada) I have been totally binging, always hungry, eating whatever I want (which included copious amounts of desserts, chips and other carbs from hosting dinner parties twice this week) , and now I am up 6lbs from last week and feeling like utter crap. :( I hate this all-or-nothing thinking!!!!
I was trying to do a lower carb plan before, which may have inflated the loss before due to water release....but it still is a big blow when I eat carbs again and have the scale spring back with a vengeance. Perhaps I should stop doing that. Heh. The initial weight loss is so addicting though from low carb plans!!
I know I shouldn't be doing anything that I am not able to commit to long term, so I think I need to come to terms with the fact that in my life, especially being a vegetarian, carbs happen. Perhaps instead I should focus on the good, complex carbs - whole grains etc. and try to just cut out the processed stuff and sugar.
As I began to tell myself that I am going to start over, and get it right this time, I remembered some sage advice I saw once..."Its time to stop starting over, and to just keep going".....Its so true. Its a journey, and I am going to have times where I mess up....and I just have to pick myself up and keep going. "Starting over" tends to set me up for failure, as there is always an end to the streak. This time I'll just keep on going.

That was a bad idea to go to the mall hungry. I went to the food court and everything seemed appetizing and I feasted my eyes on my nemesis - Taco Bell. As I went to the line and looked at my old faithful - Taco Supreme Combo with Fries Supreme I thought.......it will taste good for about 5 minutes then I will feel guilt for the rest of the night and the scale will show it in the morning. So I walked right past it and grabbed a Diet Coke on the way home so I wouldnt feel so hungry and had dinner when I got back!!!! It took so much willpower to walk away but i did it and it feels soooooooo good!!!!!! It sets the tone for things to come and keeps the momentum going - if I can resist my favorite fast food joint when I am hungry, I can do this once and for all!!!

This is going to get ranty.
My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary recently and it seems like pressure is on from everyone to have a baby now. Questions from everyone - when when when?
Yes, we have been trying, no its not happening yet, yes I have gone to the Dr. and really....I dont like talking about it with people!! But thats not the worst part....3 weeks ago, one of the NUNS comes up to me after church with a brilliant smile and says "oh, you look like you have some news!!!".....and just this past sunday another lady asked me if I was just gaining weight or if there is a baby in there!!! I am actually LIGHTER than I was last year.......maybe it is distributed differently........but thats besides the point.....SOME PEOPLE JUST HAVE NOOOO TACT!!! If I had some news to share, I WOULD BE THE ONE TO OFFER THE INFORMATION!!!!!!!!!
Trying not to feel like a big blimp, but I must say, that was a big blow to the self-esteem for me. I am tired of feeling like this.
