I feel like I am in a holding pattern. I have been battling the same 10 pounds for at least 2 years. I lose them then I gain them back. I play the blame game.....I blame my plan, my exercise, the fact that I have too many things in my way of eating healthy.
I do really good for a few days, then I go off track.....then it takes several days for me to get back on track. Then I am back where I started or at times worse off. This week, for example, I was doing great. Monday night I went to an FFA Banquet with my daughter. They served steak, baked potatoes, salad, bread and cake. I only ate the steak and the salad. Then Tuesday night, I went to a Sports Banquet. They served beef fajitas, salad, and cake. I ate the meat and veggies (but no flour tortilla), and a small piece of cake. Then yesterday morning my weight was okay. Then last night, I went to a potluck dinner at church, which is really dangerous for me. You don't have any idea what are in the dishes. So, of course, I ate too much, plus I had more than one piece of dessert. Today I couldn't get back on track so again I feel like I am spiralling out of control.
I think when I ate that one piece of dessert, and my weight didn't go up I just allowed myself to go overboard. I can't avoid banquets and potlucks indefinitely. I just need to have some self control. Any suggestions on how to do that?
