6/10/2013 - Really wanted to stay on track yesterday but I really went overboard. I opened a bag of terra chips after dinner and I ate the whole bag. I should never have opened them. Then, after a nice healthy dinner, I ate a s'more with my girls and some pieces of chocolate. For some reason, once I have more than my fair serving of a treat I feel as if I cannot stop and I want more. In fact, while I was eating the chips I thought about the fact that I should stop and that I was not hungry but I kept eating those chips. So much for mental toughness. There was no mental toughness at that point. And I weighed in at my lowest weight of 130.0 on Friday morning. It is as if I let myself have more to eat because I feel like I have earned it and my weight is at a good number. This is a constant struggle for me. I need to learn how to eat better on the weekends too. If this is a life-style change then the weekends are included! I need to figure out a way to stay with it on the weekends too. Perhaps I need to allow myself more smaller treats during the week so that I do not feel the need to get carried away on Saturday and Sunday.
But, I am back on track today.
