Thank you to everyone supported me in the aftermath of my Friday binge. I felt like I had to put it out there, yet I felt extremely vulnerable. I always worry that someone I know “in real life” might see my deepest, darkest struggle and judge me. I can only hope that if they ever do, they are gracious enough to not ever let me know about it.
I did a lot of thinking and I realized that I am simply sick to death of the Herbalife shakes for breakfast and lunch and veggie burgers nearly every night. Initially this plan worked really well for me because I did not have to do a lot of thinking or planning, BUT I’m tired of it now and I need to shake things up enough to make staying on program enjoyable. SO…I made decision that it is OK do something else if I want to – even buy a prepackaged meal! Which BTW I had this for dinner tonight and it was friggin’ AWESOME!
What is really important is that I meet my nutritional goals, i.e., 1200 - 1800 calories and up to 2300 on Saturdays. I just have to IGNORE the sanctimonious DH rambling about “Herbalife is working for ME! I have so much energy. My pants are too loose! I hope I don’t get too thin...” I want to STRANGLE the smug little ba$tard! On the weekend I have ONE glass of red wine and he drinks an ENTIRE bottle of Baileys over the weekend, a can of whipped cream on his fruit and he drops the weight effortlessly. I do NOT need him rubbing my face in the fact that he has dropped 30 pounds to my 17. (Yeah, I know. I need to SHADDUP and support him).
