Take it easy
Sunday, April 06, 2014
Today I got into the 170's. I am proud of myself. I feel in control. I watched what I ate over the weekend very carefully. I planned out every meal and every snack. I ate when I was hungry, like every 2 hours, but I made sure to eat healthy.
I'm feeling good right now. I don't know how long it will last and I don't know that it will last forever. My feelings of control come and go. But I'm happy to be back in the 170's. I was last here 5 years ago. I am excited to push past this and go even further than I did before.
I made cupcakes last week for a coworkers birthday. Vanilla cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting. Yum. I made the frosting and licked my fingers here and there. I made the cupcakes and was not planning to have one. Hot out of the oven, they looked so good... so I inhaled one. Crammed it right into my mouth. It was so good. But I felt bad 'messing up' like that after a good day. I reassured myself that at least I didn't have it with frosting. So I decided not to weigh myself the next day, Thursday cuz I didn't want to be disappointed. I weighed myself instead on Friday, and was happy with the number.
I am learning to relax and not stress. Take it easy. You want a cupcake? Have a cupcake. Eat perfectly the whole day, budget it in, sit down, eat it slowly and enjoy it. I think homemade goods taste much better and are probably healthier than store-bought, so if I am craving something I'll make it rather than buy it.
Anyway, my mom is coming to visit me today, and I think I will ask her to bring me some of my 'skinny' clothes. I hope that they will fit and become a nice addition to my wardrobe.
Good luck to everyone and have a great week!
