The bottomless pit....

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Omg I am so mad at myself - I went away for 3 days for my hubby's birthday and I ate and ate and ate and drank and drank and drank - funny thing was - I ate a ton and drank a ton but really never was full.....I think I have a bottomless pit ....

When I got back from this hiatus ...of course I didn't want to know how much I gained - there was no doubt tho that the scales would show a gain....I figured I would give myself a week off weighing myself and look this upcoming Monday....

I am shocked tho that after 7 months of eating right and excersising right - that in 3 days I not only went back but overindulged to the point of insanity.... What is in me that would do this when taking off those pounds is so slowwwwww..........????

I have to figure this out at some point in my life....I am back on track .... but wholly - why is that bottomless pit still there????

    You gave yourself permission to have fun and it included all these foods and drinks you have done without for some time.
    Next time maybe plan for the snacks and the drinks ahead of time and try to pick those that are lower in calories and healthier.....and allow yourself to have fun as often as you can.

    you should be able to celebrate your success it has been great!!!!!

    The pit will always be there until you are able to find a replacment for all the yummy foods and drinks. It takes time and there will be a lot of those days where you become a teenage boy and eat and drink everything in sight. Dont beat yourself up about it. Just sit down and look at what you did and how you can change it. When you are out celebrating something and you know thats a trigger, remember how you felt the last time and start to think about what to change. BUT dont let it ruin your fun. Eat what you want but in smaller portions or share a plate. Drink a large glass of water between drinks. When you get back to your exercises add in a couple reps and go on an extra walk. Im in the same boat with you so I always try to drink just water or a starwberry lemonade and I always try the yummiest healthiest foods.
    Keep up the hard work and stay positive!!!

    I struggle with this too! Guess it's part of this journey to figure out what our triggers are and learn to deal with them. I enjoy food and trying new things and eating out...UGH! Hang in there friend - you aren't alone! We will get through these hurdles one at a time!
