It is such a great feeling when you realize that you can allow yourself some treats and that the sky doesn't fall. Although I'm still working on operating on more of an even keel, I find that I can give myself carte blanche to eat pretty much whatever I want one meal a week without seeing a net gain. As long as I'm eating sensibly and exercising moderately the rest of the week, I find it hard to eat so much at that one meal that it offsets what I'm able to "bank" the rest of the week. It's tempting for me to just spread those extra calories out over the rest of the week and not feel compelled to overdo it at that one meal, but I've been really reluctant to make big changes to what's worked so well for me so far. It's great to have that release once a week and to not have to worry about what and how much I'm eating, even if it's just one meal out of 21.
My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.
