Oh, dear, another holiday...

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I started out with good intentions. I prepared for the day with something desirable in the fridge. I passed on lunchtime dessert and carbs at a restaurant; I was proud of my restraint. I PREpared for dinner by eating a little before we left for the restaurant. But dinner; Oh dinner! The restaurant was serving a special Valentine's Day menu -- fixe prix -- and they were OUT of 2 of the 3 courses I was going to order (and even then I was passing on dessert!). So my choices were carbs, carbs, or carbs. Or I could ruin the evening by making a scene and leaving with dear hubby, but he didn't deserve that. So, I grinned and ate carbs. Oh, the meal was delicious - I haven't eaten anything so wonderful in a long time. But I was angry too. It wasn't worth going out of ketosis. It wasn't worth the cravings that have now started up again. It wasn't worth the 2 pounds that I gained. 2 lbs isn't much, but it is a THIRD of my loss to date. But sometimes you have to roll with the punches. It doesn't matter, I keep telling myself, HOW SLOWLY I lose the weight, as long as I DO lose it, and as long as I keep off what I lose. I'm in for the long haul -- the rest of my life! I can deal with this setback! It is nothing when you take the long view!

    Your attitude at the end of your blog is the one you want to stick with! It's a minor set back and it's now behind you! That's what makes this program so different - remember it's not a "diet" - it's a way of life and there are going to be bumps along the way. Here's to being back on track! (:
