Remaining "Guilt"

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Today is one of those days where I am not feeling the drive or confidence. I haven't lost any weight in weeks... in fact I've gained 2#s... even though I have NOT eaten enough for this.

In the past, I've let myself go in these situations. For instance, after the last few days' ridiculous incidents in the kitchen, I decided I wasn't going to cook tonight. I was VERY tempted to order pizza or eat out... but I decided last minute to make a healthy tuna salad sandwich with red bell peppers, low fat mayo, 1 piece of whole/multi grain bread... however I ate 2 servings of baked lays over the afternoon. I am in my calorie range, but since I didn't work out and I'm not losing, I sort of feel like I don't "deserve" my daily allowance (which right now is about 1500-1600). I think this is the next attitude I need to nip in the butt.

I did weight watchers a few years ago, and I think that the "weekly free points" were a good idea... it had built in extra calories, so I didn't feel like I was eating too much. I need to really examine my normal weekly energy expenditure and consumption to figure out just how much I need to eat to lose weight.

Again, I'm glad I've truly made changes or else I would be gaining again... And these days will pass. I like looking at inspirational stories to get me through these moods. And I am sure it will get better.

    I really think this time of year is very hard. I know I deal with the post holiday "blahs" and that really pulls down my motivation. Good job skipping the pizza though! :)

    Hopefully you will wake up tomorrow and all those sorry, bad thoughts will be gone. Keep remembering how far you've come and all the great strides you've made. You're right, it REALLY DOES help to read all the inspirational things that people write.

    Sorry about the bummer weight. It really is a bummer, hitching a ride for free and doing nothing to help. And he's a real jerk when you tell him to "get lost-and stay lost" I found his shoes for you emoticon now, tell him to hike his ### out of here.
