Post Weigh in Day
Monday, February 21, 2011
I finally found the picture of me before I started. I'm asking myself do I want to return to looking like that. My daughter said to me that day, "Mom look at your stomach!" I really didn't know because I guess I was avoiding mirrors.
This morning was weigh in and I had my usual healthy breakfast. Today is choir practice so I had to have an early lunch. Today is also shopping day so nothing was ready or planned. That is my usual habit.
So I said to myself, "Self, you got weighed this morning an you did Ok, it's a slow week so if you want to eat out today is the day." The idea is I have the rest of the week to work it off. I ordered a hamburger and black tea. Then she came back and asked me if I'd like anything else and I smiled. She rhymed off several things and I thought a tart shouldn't be too bad.
Well this wasn't a store bought little tart it was a homemade thick pastry raisin tart. Ate that and went to choir. Stopped to do that shopping I mentioned. Just need a few things, When I was leaving I noticed my favorite Snickers bars in the sale bin at the checkout.
Just jumped right in and bought that chocolate bar and ate it.
My lesson is and this day isn't over yet, one little cheat can trigger two and so on and so on.........and eventually you look like the lady whom I don't recognize above.
Tomorrow back on track eating my fruit.
Then I will be flying high.
Thank you for letting me share this with you. Dianne
