Two days in...
Tuesday, February 02, 2010
Well, true to my nature, I had a stumble tonight. I seriously thought about giving up and going on a full binge, and this is only my second day!
I had done so good these two days with my calories and learning my way around the website and actually getting on my stationary bike for the first time in a while.
But I don't know...when I got home from work, I just wanted a sandwich. I didn't feel like calculating calories or recording my food. The sandwich was joined by a pile of corn chips, a soft drink, and some M&M's. And then the "so what" mentality kicked in full force. Why not just eat everything I could find and chalk it all up to another failure?
But hubby and I went to the class that one of our church members is teaching on Tuesday nights about healthy eating and weight loss. It was our second weigh-in tonight and I'd gained two pounds since last time, a month ago. That just added more fuel to the fire, and I started planning in my head what I was going to eat when we got home from class!
But somewhere during the class, my momentum came back, and now that I'm home and relaxing, I'm ready to pick up and start moving forward again! Tonight was just a little stumble, I'm sure there'll be more along the way. But I feel better tonight knowing that I CAN start back on my journey, that the little stumble didn't knock me all the way down!
