Thanksgiving Countdown T-4

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I really enjoyed the hike in the morning and spent the day shopping with a girlfriend.
Last night I started to get the temptations to mindlessly eat (shopping drains and exhausts me so). I ate half of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Thank God that was all that was left, because I don't think I could have stopped at that. I found some Arctic Zero ice cream at the Health Food Store, so I had some of that and that helped. Before I went to bed I ended up munching on some stuff in the kitchen but I went to bed before it got out of hand.
Today I'm going to be guarded against the desire to binge!


I'm anticipating some challenges today. I'm going to start the day off running/hiking at the trail (which is good) but then I'll be going to lunch with a friend who likes to eat higher calorie stuff. Then I've been dwelling on these chips that I used to binge on. Mike Sells Zesty BBQ Potato Chips- they're an Ohio thing so I don't have them in TX. But they're a major trigger food for me... and I remember binging on them from the time I was a child until the time I moved to TX. I'm trying desperately to STAY AWAY from those things!!
Anyway, my major challenge today is just a dangerous mindset. I don't know if I'm tired or what.

Highlights: This dress fit perfectly

I did not end up purchasing it because it wasn't on sale like I thought it was. But it makes me really excited to know that I COULD have purchased it!

Lowlights: I miss my husband.

    You are looking just great at the weight you are right now. And at your height, a size 4 is probably about as small as you should go. Don't give up your shapely curves in search of a new low weight. Remember, healthy and fit is the goal. That number on the scale doesn't tell the whole truth. God bless

    Hang in there! Think of the size 4 and maybe look at that great photo of you in your jeans before you eat, especially before you buy those trigger chips. This morning, when I saw something you did in my friend feed, I thought, "Hey, there Skinny Girl." :-) You look and are doing awesome!

    Size 4 - wow - awesome highlight! Sorry you are missing your husband! I agree - the urge to binge is hard to avoid. I was also in that mood last night and had to go to bed to stop the cycle too. Does drinking a lot of liquid help you - it helps me sometimes - I drown my binge urge in tea!

    Wow,that is so awesome! I bet you never thought you would see that size. I still can't believe when I go into store and try on a 2, I always have to get several pairs of the same item just to make sure the one that fit isn't mislabeled. I guess you can call that "former fat girl paranoia."

    Stay strong, I know you have faced a lot of triggers in such a short amount of time. Today looks like it may be getting to you. At least you recognize it early on and will be able to be on guard.
