Well I had a bit of a slip yesterday. Already. More like a lack of better judgemnt. I'm not upset about it. Under the same circumstances in the past I would have had a total pig out and eaten everything I could get my mouth on in the time available. My husband went snowmobiling and I usually eat the whole time he's gone. I did eat. 10 whole wheat crackers. That's it. I actually walked around the kitchen looking for something to eat and didnt want to, but I did. (old habits die hard) But I think I did great and I'm very proud of myself for the choice I made. Next time should be easier. I was not prepared for him to go, it was very last minute. Maybe that helped, I didnt have time to dwell on it for a day. I was in the middle of something when he left and I didnt think of eating until I was done that task. I had a healthy pot of extra veggie chili on the stove, so I had dinner early, knowing I may keep eating. So I say "Way to Go Glenda"

It may be small, but in my eyes and with my history it is huge.

    Celebrate that you are changing! No one can be 'perfect', and you definitely made a better choice than what you could've made. Every little better choice adds up. It is definitely a victory!

    You might have also learned something: when husband is gone you eat, but if you're busy you can distract yourself from that emotional eating. Maybe you could come up with some projects to do around the house, plan an outting with others that doesn't depend wholly on food, or do some hobby activities so you don't go looking for food. If you know he'll be gone plan the activities ahead of time. For the times it's sprung on you have a list of things you can do instead.
