I ATE it

Friday, February 19, 2010

I am so disappointed in myself and I can not get over it...HELP!!!! so last night i had to pick my daughter and her boyfreind up at Burger King. his mom kept asking if i would like something to eat but i had eaten before i went there so no temptations. I ended up having some chicken fries not the best choice but not over my calories all was good AND THEN she gave me two sandwiches to take home to my husband A whopper and a chicken sandwich i dont care for either one and wouldnt waste my calories on them. so i stuck them in my purse and drove home. when i got home i decided to go thru some bills and took the sandwiches out of my purse and put them on the table for when my husband got home. but something happened i dont know how or why but before i knew what I was doing i ATE IT the whole chicken sandwich. I couldnt believe it!!! and now it is stuck in my head WHY WHY WHY would i ever eat it??? and now all the hard work i did this week to make that stupid scale move is doomed...... i am so MAD at myself and i can not get over it!!!! I ATE IT!!!

    I just had a similar incident. Only it was with homemade cookies my mom insisted I take home with me. I allowed myself two small cookies and then gave the bags to my hubby. He was tired and went to bed early and guess what? Yup. Those two small cookies coverted me into a sugar whore. I kept going back to the bag for more and ended up eating a dozen.

    I woke up the next morning crabby and irritable and full of self-hate. But know what? I somehow found the strength to forgive myself and get over it. And I let my husband take the remaining cookies over to the neighbors.

    My best advice, hard as it is, is to let go of the guilt, forgive yourself and move on. Don't step on the scale this week. Give yourself time to get back on track and start thinking positive again.

    Hope you're feeling a little better by now. Have a great weekend.

    Sheila, Please let the guilt go. Things like this happen and now you will be more aware of the circumstances that can cause a slip up. I doubt that one sandwich will sabotage your weight loss. If you did it everyday that would be a problem. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and continue on your journey. We are holding your hand so come with us. emoticon Nola

    Things like this happen, if it happens over and over...there could be a cause for being mad at yourself. Don't let it get you too down though. Temptations are everywhere, I deal with them everyday....I work at a school. There are days when I give in and its ok, as long as I do not do it everyday. So keep up your good work and get back on track today. You can do it, I believe in you. Hope you have a Wonderful Weekend.

    You're going to be okay!! It's DEPRIVATION - you kept telling yourself, "You're not going to eat it! You CAN'T eat it!" And so your body wanted it, and so you DID eat it!

    But guess what? It's just one food item out of one day out of ALL the stuff you eat in a week. You'll be okay :-) Just don't let go - don't eat all the forbidden foods you want because you had one hiccup.

    Next time, try telling yourself, "Ew, gross! Chicken sandwich. Why would anyone want to eat THAT?" And grab the carrot sticks (even if you aren't hungry!). Or, just don't accept the sandwiches, and make your husband cook dinner himself! :-P

    Best of luck!!

    Sheila... I honestly think it is just Bad Habit... and the thought of NOT wasting any food ... even unHealthy food...

    remember sweetie Be gentle with you... something I have found... KEEP the JUNK food out of YOUR HOUSE.... probably shouldnt have brought it home to hubby... I KNOW you were being kind to not waste... that too is a BAD habit thinking to not waste I have found when I do that I added to my Waist....teehee...
    Hugs my friend... remember You are doing great and in the process of change...
    be gentle with you during the disappointments.... and CELEBRATE the success...
