Hit the wall yesterday

Thursday, May 09, 2013

I've been running around with friends for 2 weeks while they are on vacation. For the most part I have been super good about my food choices and had great weight losses as a result.
Then sadly yesterday the wheels fell off. I had a day where I was so tired and nothing I ate satisfied me, and I seemed to eat everything wrong that could be eaten. I know what I needed, something for energy, but I sure as heck wasn't going to find it in cheese sandwiches and sweets and that's pretty much what I invested in. I went to bed disappointed in myself and feeling overfull and uncomfortable.

Well that was yesterday and today is today. I woke up, and am back with really good choices again. I found this, which to me says it all.

I won't let my ONE BAD DAY out of nearly 50 hold me back. Someone said "its not a sprint, its a marathon" and I am in it for the long haul...however long that takes. Today's salad choice of fresh spinach salad with sprouts, mushrooms and avo was a superb choice and a whole lot better than yesterdays choice.

I also won't let the current number on my scale be forever. I am done with up and down weight losses and gains. It's down down down for me, despite my one day here and there. The caption says "That can't be my weight, it must be my telephone number" LOL

I can't wait to see all the photo's from my friends visit. They are on her camera and she will email them to me on Sunday when she gets home to internet. There is one in particular I want to see of me inching my way slowly to a rock rabbit and seeing just how close I would be allowed to get. It was so close that if I had stuck my hand I could have stroked the little creature.

My weight loss is beginning to show to anyone now 9.7kgs (21.3pounds) because so many people are commenting on my weight loss and so many friends and acquaintances say I'm "glowing" I guess that must be the feel good I'm getting from within from weight loss and boot camp. And today my friends daughter said I look like Drew Barrymore emoticon Now I just need Drew's fabulous figure. I'm working on that, however I won't spend my life trying to look like someone else. I plan to be a first rate copy of myself rather than a second rate copy of someone else.

    Yesterday was just a little "bump in the road". The good thing is that you got right back on track instead of giving up on yourself. BTW, you are doing great on the weight loss.

  Think of last Sunday's Watchtower and you will remember where that quote came from. emoticon Spark Sister!

    Good for you Celeste. I agree that it's important to be the best you and not a copy of someone else. You are awesome just the way you are.

    That all or nothing mentality is the biggest drawback to which I sucumbed a lot and I am so glad Spark has made me aware and able to overcome it.

    That salad looks so good. I'm think I'm gonna actually make myself a little sticker chart like that. What a fun visual to have and encourage myself with. Thanks for the idea!
