Still trying

Monday, February 25, 2013

So this weekend was a total bust. I had a really bad day at work on Friday, so told my husband we are going out to dinner. I had a steak with potatos Au Gratin. But I also had brocolli, so perhaps they were offset. I ate so fast I barely tasted the food. That is my big problem, emotional eating. I used to stop at the drivethru on my way home and order a full meal, then eat it as I drove, dumped the "evidence" and then had dinner with the family. I haven't done that in a long time, but sometimes I think about it and have to talk myself out of it. Saturday was ok, but then Sunday my youngest daughter and I had a mom daughter day. She doesn't want those very often, so I jumped at the chance. We went to lunch and I had a bacon cheeseburger AND we had onion rings and fried zuchini spears with Ranch dressing!

We had a good talk so I made the rationalization that it was ok to not just fall off the wagon, but to fully jump off.

So now it's Monday and I feel totally guilty about everything I put into my mouth. I know that we can't change the past, and what's done is done, but I was really hoping that I would do better on making choices. I also know that the change won't happen overnight, but it will never happen if I don't try.

It's Monday and I have another opportunity to start again, so here goes!

    We're all going to have days where we slip back into our old habits. You messed up, you admitted it,now move on. You said it yourself, it's Monday and a fresh start.

    Hang in there and think about how good it is you know where you have difficulties with overeating. From what you've written you have made improvements and you'll make more too in the time to come :-)
    Hang in there and remember all that guilt won't taker those calories out of your body! So, plan your meals (like I saw others had suggested to you when you had similar problems earlier) and do all those little things that you know are good for you to do but maybe aren't yet doing - and, hey, it's not just good for you but it will be better for your whole family!
