Nuts! But I will be okay!!

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Well Sunday (mother's day) I lost my mind or something. My husband fixed me breakfast.
It was a dreary day so we got out. My husband asked where do you want to eat. I did not want to eat out. But he said you have to your blood sugar will drop and you will get a headache. Okay, we'll go to Golden Corral but we will go early to miss the crowd. We got there at 10:30 they were still serving breakfast. We will have a little, biscuit and gravy, one bacon and a star shaped donut. I did not eat but 1/2 the biscuit and gravy (wasn't that sweet of me). Then we decided we would eat lunch. They stared serving at 11:00. We had grilled shrimp and grilled vegetables.
We rode around awhile and then went home. I thought I would have peanut butter and graham crackers for supper. I ate the whole pack! Then I had a Klondike bar and then some nuts. Then a energy bar, you know my energy was about gone with all this eating!!!!! Nuts, Nuts, Nuts.
I really thought I would not binge like that anymore. Well I found out just get me started.
One good thing Monday morning I was glad to get back to healthy eating and counting my calories. I had no desire to overeat or have two breakfast. Maybe I am learning something. Not keeping on for a week or month. Wow I really am disappointed in me but I feel like I will get better.
I was reading Sean A. Anderson's book Transformation Road and he talks about how he had struggled with 5oo pounds and how finally he changed his mind set and was able to loss around 300 hundred pounds. He has a blog that he wrote from day one and he has really inspired me.
I put something he said on my wall and I read it everyday and it gives me such hope.
I have his permission to write this: Your transformation is powerful. As you become physically smaller your world becomes bigger. You start noticing things you didn't before. You develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the road behind, giving you a new perspective on the road ahead. You're able to zero in on the present and make choices, one by one, with a confident patience for results, and its not just you, because everyone around you is affected by your transformation in some way, and this effect is beyond your control or responsibility. You embody inspiration. You're amazing. You're powerful. This is you.

    I've been where you were on Mother's Day but it hasn't happened in awhile. I'm so glad to read your back on track and that's it the WTG!! The "Transformation" book you're reading sounds like something I would enjoy reading and can relate to. Losing weight and getting healthier is hard work but the rewards or so worth it. Wishing you continued success.

    One day at a time and sometimes it is one meal at a time. Hang in there.

    It was deja vu for me reading how you felt about getting off track. It really takes the wind out of your sails, doesn't it? I think the most important thing is what you have done - get back to eating healthily as soon as possible and remembering the binge is a cautionary tale but not something to despair about.
    I also really like the quote you shared. Keep on keeping on.
