Always stay on guard.

Sunday, December 13, 2009

After a month and a half of staying on plan and losing 11 lb., I gave in to temptation on Friday and was not much better yesterday. I got on the scale today and the number definitely reflected how bad I was with my choices the last few days. I went to work on Friday to an office that had a catered lunch brought in with all kinds of desserts. I had planned on doing shakes during the day and when I saw the food I just gave in to temptation. I started out OK eating the chicken, veggies and salad and then just dove in to the desserts. Once I started I just continued. It was not a pretty sight. Then yesterday I got a bit sloppy and grazed and ate very salty snacks. So, there it is. Confession is good for the soul. I got it out and am dusting off the crumbs and plan to get back on a GS food plan day and move forward. Feeling bad about the last two days will not undo them but I don't have to repeat them either. I'm going to have a good day and get some exercise in too.

    Hey! I hope today goes great! I put a quote on my blog that I am enjoying at the moment cause I've had a bad few days.

    If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.

    Yes confession is good -- also helps those reading your blog that have the same difficulties to realize we aren't alone in this struggle. It's so easy to give in for that delicious cookie or dessert ---but is it worth it in the end. To have only one might not be so bad, but for me sweets are like Lay's potato chips, I can't have just one!

    Hope you have a good day & find it easier to stick to you eating plan.
