I was able to respect myself in the morning. (Success!)

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Went to a birthday party Saturday night, and I feel I successfully navigated the food. When I logged what I had eaten, I did go over my calories, but only by about 200. I tried to load up on vegies, brought my own drinks (water and a diet soda), and was able to get up this morning and look myself in the mirror. All in all, not a bad experience. And I know I don't miss today what I didn't eat yesterday. Today was an on-track day, ate healthy, and still have enough calories for a fruit salad for dessert.

I feel good about the past couple of days, and am beginning to think, I CAN do this. but I realize that it is crucial to log my food, and I hope to get to at least one OA meeting this week. I like being able to respect myself in the morning.

    Marianne, I often plan and log my food BEFORE I eat it, especially when I am in control of what I am going to eat. It helps me to see what nutrients I need more/less of, such as protein for the day.

It also helps me make better choices. As you said, it is a process. Thanks for the feedback.

    Thats wonderful- I went out to dinner tonight and had my food planned and ate carefully and brought some home. I did eat some cheese cake but did not feel out of control and feel good now- probably went a little over but it is hard to estimate sometimes.

This process can be slow but I believe we can do it- tracking really helps me- it will be hard when I am at work all day and can't immediately record it- maybe I can plan what I will eat during the day and log before I go in.

keep going- we will succeed emoticon
