Don't want to lose control.

Monday, July 05, 2010

Although my weight hasn't changed in the last couple weeks, my attitude has changed in the last couple of days And not for the better.

Despite friends boosting me up, I still find myself having the "what's the point" attitude. I wonder what is the point of caring if no matter what I do, I don't get results. Yesterday I felt like that and blew my calorie range. Today I am set to do fine. (meaning staying in my calorie range) But, I am heading over to a friends BBQ for dinner. I want to stick to my eating plan. But, I feel that bad attitude creeping back in. The one that says..."Have that dessert. It doesn't matter anyway. You didn't lose anything when you did all the right things. So, who cares."

I am fighting that voice right now, as I head out to the BBQ. But, I want to know that my choices do matter. I want to know that if I stay in my calorie range it will be worth it and not just a pain to get through. I can get through anything if I know it is worth it.

But, I am not sure I KNOW that what I am doing will work, when it hasn't so far.

    I know exactly how you feel, this has been a rough week for me too. I know that summer is tough for me because there are so many opportunities to eat. I still have weight I want to lose but right now I have to focus on maintaining because that seems like all I am succeeding at. Hang in there :o)

    Looks like I need to nudge you a bit. The math will work....it just is more stubborn with us. Keep at it, it'll be worth it. It's not worth that extra dessert - even if it feels like it is at the time. You'll feel better and more in control if you stay in control.
    I'm sure by now you've already had the bbq....but, it will work if you just keep at it. I know it will.

    We're in this one together. Let's pick a date to see real results by. I'm determined to make it to my birthday on Nov 14 and be 10 pounds lighter than now. Join me?
    A big hug your way.... emoticon

    Always aim to have breakfast, and have a glass of water when you wake up. It helps me a lot.
