Big oops in the eating department ughghghg

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Ok, thought about not even admitting this but then realized I must be honest. I messed up. I stinking can’t believe how easy it was for me to do it. I ate Wendy’s, and what makes me the most upset, I didn’t even try to talk myself out of it… ughghgh why do I do this? I was so mad and embarrassed I almost thought about not fessing up but I knew I had to so I could accept it, forgive, and move on. I think I was so dang tired I got in the “I don’t give a crap” state of mind and now I feel crappy and I deserve it. So disappointed. The thing I don’t understand is the food is not even that good,, my cooking is way better but something about fast food that drags you in,,, I hate it,, just wish I knew what I could do to order the salad if I think I need to go there but I don’t even want to or can’t even begin to talk myself into it. I know the best answer is just do it, but soooo much easier said than done.. I want this really bad yet even that doesn't convince me when I get it stuck in my head I want it,, I never use to be a fast food eater either,, I guess living in the country back home in the North, you really didn't have the option,, here in Dallas it is everywhere. I need to figure out how I can get myself to stop and think what I am doing and stop having the “I don’t care attitude” need to come up with something.

    I am bad at turning away food when others are eating it,, that is one thing I am determined to break in myself.. I can't let food pushers to get me off track,, keep on fighting we can do this!

    Believe me you are not the only one.I messed up going out to eat last night with friends. I ate the full plate of food and then ordered a piece of lemon meringue pie. It wasn't I needed it by any means, but everyone else had a piece of pie and I just wanted one too. I guess I need to work harder today and also need to learn to say NO!
    Just remember today is a new day. emoticon

    Hi Dawn:

    We have all been there. The important, and really hard thing to do, is not beat yourself up for it. Forgive yourself and move on. Don't give up and let this one off day cause you to throw in the towel. It is o.k. to allow yourself an occasional meal that is not on your plan. I think that it helps to keep you from feeling deprived and really going off the wagon. Hang tough and know that you are not alone and we are here for you!

    Good for you for posting! You can't tackle a problem until you admit to yourself that it's a problem.

    What is it that attracts you to the fast food? Do you think it's automatically forbidden? Maybe that makes it more tempting to you.

    Some purists won't touch fast food because it's not exactly the best quality, but if you look at it purely from a low carb perspective there are lots of ways to make it an occasional exception to your daily menu. I prefer Wendy's and KFC over the other chains. When I order stuff for the kids I'll usually get myself 2 Jr Bacon Deluxe Cheeseburgers and then eat them without the bun. No sides or drinks, just the burgers. At KFC I'll get the grilled chicken thighs, again with no sides. I wouldn't like to have to live on the stuff, but it's fine for a once a week quicky dinner.
