Well, today was my week 3 weigh in. I got up out of bed excited to step on the scale and to my surprise.......a BIG FAT 0 weight less, nothing, nada!!! I think you can tell that I was a little more than disappointed. How could this be? I'm eating low carb, no bread, no potatoes, no white flour, lots of veggies, exercising,....what did I do wrong?
While I am pondering all of this, my husband comes home from a visit to the doctor's office. He immediately wants to know if I'd like to go eat at the new Mexican Restaurant we have in our little town. Well, I probably don't have to tell you what I did. I said, "YES, let's go." He knows Mexican food is my favorite. I was thinking I'll teach you scale for not moving!! How utterly stupid is that?? Blaming the scale. Although I don't know who or what to blame because I have no idea why I didn't lose even 1 lb, my emotions took over and I ate at the Mexican buffet. I did drink water, had only about 10 tortilla chips, had the chicken fajita WITHOUT the tortilla, and a big tossed salad....believe me, that was much, much better than what I usually would have eaten at a Mexican restaurant, but still all I did was hurt myself. Why did I do that????????
I'm trying not to beat myself up over it. Dinner this evening is another meal, one I can eat the way I'm suppose to. Trying to keep my wits about me. I need to really work on not depending on the scale so much and go by how I'm feeling. I do feel better, my clothes are fitting better, no one else can tell, but I can and that is what counts.
To anyone who reads this blog, don't give in to emotional eating. Stand strong!!!
