My sister is still doing poorly. She wanted to go to Publix to go shopping, I vetoed it. I asked her if she wanted me to go. No. It was just that ceral was 50% off. At 9pm everyone was sleeping and looked at the ad. The cereal deal was only for Saturday and Sunday. I got dressed and off to publix I went. I bought 6 boxes of Special K, and got two boxes of Special K chips for free. Feeling fairly happy with myself, I passed the snack bars. South Beach bars are buy one get one. Great deal, but I have a problem with bars, eat them all. No I am strong I won't do it.
Well I ate one in the car on the way home, ok, good job Karen you know when to say no. I put everything away and grabbed another bar, I am still under my calories for the day, I am still ok. I ate the rest of the box during the night, opened the other box at 5am when I tried to help my sister get to work, and one at 830 while my niece was walking the dogs. Sigh! I took the rest of the box and threw it on my niece's bed, never to be seen again.
I felt a little ashamed this morning, but I also was able to forgive myself. I am not capable of saying no to bars yet, can't have them in the house. I know I am making strides by recognizing this and will try and work through it.
Will I put on some weight? I don't think so. I will adjust my calories today and tomorrow, not starve myself but make very good, low calorie foods. Yes I know I am strong, and no I am not perfect!
Btw, check my ticker! I lost 6 pounds this week. My medium term goal was to lose 10 pounds by February 1. Today is the 28th and I have lost 21.6 pounds!!!!! Woohoo!
