Shame Part II

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I did so well yesterday: ate properly, tracked my food intake, and retired early.

My solid track record yesterday, however, ended when: I rose from bed at 11 PM, went to the kitchen, and pigged out. I had four pieces of bread, a cup of honey, and a cup of raisins...all near midnight.

Yes, I was hungry--but only because my body is becoming accustomed to a lower (read healthier) food intake. Regardless, I should've stayed in bed and looked ahead to a good breakfast the following morning.

Because of my poor choices yesterday, I ended the day at over 3000 calories (twice my objective).

So I now begin today with a new outlook and a protruding belly. emoticon

    Vienka, thanks for your comment. Just like you, I see numbers/calories/health data everywhere I now turn. But at least you are focused upon wellness ... that inspires me.

    What are some of your coping strategies to avoid giving in (to pigging out)???!! emoticon

    Linda Marie, many thanks for your comment. Like you, night time seems to be when I am most vulnerable.

    BUT...I appreciate your reminder to look ahead and work ahead! Thanks--I really needed your good reminder and your kind motivation!

    Oh man, I wonder what my first 'pigging out' session is going to be like since I started to watch what I eat... I can only imagine since I love food so much! But I think it's normal to do that once in a while. Just have to get back in the groove now.

    Since I've started watching my calories intake, I now see numbers everytime I look at food. Those numbers are everywhere! Gaahh...

    Every once in a while I do that too! It makes us human! Your body might just need a few extra calories at that time! Sometimes it hits me at night too (that is when I am more volnerable) Get up, dust yourself off and quit looking backward! You are doing teriffic!
