I ate more than I should have last night for dinner and the bad thing is, I knew I was eating more than I should but I couldn't stop myself. We had turkey burgers, which doesn't seem so bad, but on sourdough bread and with mayo and cheese and I had 1.5 of them and then had pasta-roni. I was really hungry and we got home late after basketball practice (for my daughter, not me!).
All week, I have been starving by 5 or 6pm, just ravenous. I would eat more for lunch or in the afternoon but I'm already getting more than the recommended amount of calories in for that timeframe.
A few days ago I made my motivational collage and I keep it next to me at work. I've also copied down a few motivational statements and I'm pretty sure if I had taken one out and looked at it last night, I could have stepped away. I'm going to make sure to keep it with me for the weekend. We always eat out on weekends and I never eat properly so it will be tough for me.
The pain of passing up food is temporary. The rewards of weight loss are forever.
