I have really flopped

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Today, I really fell off the wagon with my diet. I overate and felt so guilty that I just wanted to give up. But, I told myself that I wasn't going to give up and I will do better tomorrow. I know it's hard, to stay focus in the big picture, but I think about my looks and I just want to hide skmetjme and not come out of the house. So, I said to myself, self this is not what I want to do in not putting myself in this position with my weight. Now, that I am taking a look at the big picture and reading some of the success story on sparks page, it makes me really want to work hard and keep the motivation inside me going. I know deep down I can lose this weight because I have done it before. So, I am still on my same goal level and I plan on staying on this diet until I reach my goal.

    My "flop" day was the 13th... OMG. Risotto with some cream sauce on it - and it wasn't even that good... a piece of pretty enlightened salmon- broiled - but the sucker was the size of your HEAD!!!! I should've eaten - oh, I dunno - a FOURTH of it, but guess what?? Yep. Munched it all. Topped off by - and this is the clincher - bread pudding with caramel sauce for dessert - and I'm not even a sweet eater.
    What happened was I had to play a show at 8 & made the mistake of eating at 3... they didn't offer to feed us until AFTER the show. Big mistake - I know better. Should've had good snacks with me, but NO
    when all was said and done I was at 1988 calories - thats 400-600 more than I'm supposed to have. But -- oh well... the rest of the days this week including today, I've done GREAT. It's a numbers game. Remember, baseball hall of famers only have to have an 80/20 success record & that works in weight loss too. Consistency for the long term, and forgiving our own mistakes and putting them behind us as we KEEP GOING - that's what will get us there.

    Bad days happen--I had a major binge the other day--and then I got myself over it and got right back on track. One bad day will not change things much in the long run. Dust off your pride and jump back in! emoticon

    I flopped today also!! I did not plan on it,but it is just the way the day went. I had company come over,with a gift of pizza!! So of course I felt I had to eat it(and it was delish) I did not even get to work out today either. But I am not going to let it bother me!! Today was today...tomorrow is another,and I will be back at it. For me,things like this are going to happen...we just can not let them happen every day! Sometimes i am going to eat bad food,and have cake or whatever...I just can not do that every day like I have been doing.

    Keep thinking about your goal!!! I also have days when I do not feel like being seen by anyone,I feel to fat or ugly or non stylish... But like you said i keep on reading things from spark and getting lots of positive messages from people and it keeps me going,and I know I can do this!! So can you emoticon
