Back to normalcy

Monday, March 18, 2013

For the past week I have been entertaining out of town family which includes taking them around and eating out. So, I veered off the straight and narrow gaining back a couple of pounds. I did stay within certain parameters for some meals but allowed some things in. So, back to phase one I go. I tried to cook many of the meals, which keeps me in control of what goes in my body but not everyone wants to eat what I eat. I understand that. The family is gone and now I must get back on track. I can't say it is easy "being good" but it is better for me. I do not see it as a step back but as normal living. Bumps in the road are a part of life and they will always be there and some bumps are okay because they include enjoying the company of those you love, sharing a glass a wine. Cheers! I'm back.

    Normalcy? Do we ever get there? So many obstacles along the diet trail. Good thought.

    Isn't sad when others won't eat what you're eating because it's too "healthy"?
    I have the same problem. emoticon
    Just go back to basics and the regain will slip right off. emoticon emoticon

    We have to 'get off track' every so often. As long as you get back on track then you have nothing to worry about. Glad you had a good time with company.

    I like your attitude and hope you recover from this bump in the road better than I am.

    i know it is much easier to stay on track when you are in control with no outside influences but eating correctl for a while, a slip or two is espected. I am glad you back on track.

    I am starting to feel a little more relaxed about stuff like that too. I haven't gained, but I am not losing at quite the same rate anymore. I've decided that's okay. Glad you got to share some wine with family! emoticon
