A person can only lie to themselves so long before the truth catches up to them. I felt like I was doing okay with eating whatever I want, without being too terribly piggish about it, and without gaining weight. I was only 3 pounds over my Biggest Loser finale weight. And I was getting back into a good running routine.
And then, ever so gradually, the scale caught up with me. You can't eat like that and maintain or lose weight! Can't!
My weight this morning was a rude awakening. I HAVE TO track my food, and I HAVE TO keep my calories in check, or I WILL gain back all the weight I worked so hard to lose! I keep saying that.................. For two months now I've been struggling to find the balance -- somewhere between obsessively light eating and all out piggishness. There HAS TO be a middle ground! [INSERT SWEAR WORDS HERE]
Ok, got that off my chest.
I can do this.
I will do this.
I am not giving up.
I am starting a half marathon training plan.
And the biggie................ my biggest struggle: I WILL KEEP MY CALORIES UNDER MY SPARKPEOPLE -RECOMMENDED MAXIMUM.
Stop with all the little lies! "Oh this one little treat doesn't matter." Trouble is that it's not just one and it's not so little!
STOP THE INSANITY!!!!!
Ok, pardon my little rant. Just had to come clean so I can start fresh.
No more excuses and no more self-comforting LIES!
