I don't know what is wrong with me. I just got a new sewing room built just for me. You think I would be jumping up and down with joy. I love to sew, if you haven't noticed from my pictures.

I am doing well on my weight loss again, but again, I am just blah

Tonight we are taking my niece and nephew out for dinner. I am not too thrilled about it because we will most likely go for pizza. Can I be strong enough to resist when I am feeling so blue?? I thought about just taking a protein bar with me and maybe ordering a salad. I know I would be so much happier with myself in the morning.
Just last week, my husband and I went to a restaurant that I LOVE. Everything I have ever had there is just so good. When my husband asked me what I would order, I told him I was having a meal bar. He said I could have a treat once in a while. I told him that I had gone back and forth on it and had decided that I needed to stick to my plan and that I would enjoy a meal from there sometime in the future. I need to maintain that attitude.

I am going to do this. I am going to achieve the goals I set out to achieve. I know I can reach them if I just try. I can have pizza sometime, but not tonight. Perhaps I will make some of my own soon because I know that it will be healthier. Well, there, that is my self-pep-talk for the day.

    Congratulations on your pre-planning. To take just a tiny corner then stop shows how determined you are to succeed in the whole healthy weight/healthy body journey.
    I understand just how you felt. That first time I went out for dinner after joining SP, I almost changed my mind and stayed home because I was sure I couldn't resist my usual fat and salt laden foods. Then I realized that if I stayed home that night, I'd never learn to either try just a little of something and then move on to a healthier option. I was lucky in that where we went has a serve-yourself bain marie for vegetables, and a salad bar (basic salads only, but at least they are salads) so I could just order myself grilled fish, then pile on the salads.
    Friends are talking about going out to a pizza restaurant in the next few weeks, so I dread the challenge of making a healthy choice there that I will be happy with. Guess, like you, I will see just how determined I am not to fall off the wagon.

    Thanks, I ended up taking a bar with me, but just had to try the pizza. I took just a little tiny corner. It basically was one bite, a tiny one. The pizza was not even that good, so I am glad I opted not to waste so many unhealthy calories on it!
