I need help!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I told myself that I would try to make an entry to my blog everyday to keep myself motivated. I am doing OK, eating on track, just kind of blah today though.
I weigh in tomorrow and I think I have done well. If I have even lost 1 pound in the last 2 weeks I will be fine with that.
I have to make a 2 hour trip tomorrow to pick my sister up at the airport and I guess I am a little worried about that. She offered to take me to Johnny Carino's for lunch and it scares me to death!! It may sound strange to some of you but I am one of those people that has to be in control at all times or I lose control......does that make sense???
I have gone to their website and picked out a nice, healthy lunch and know exactly how many calories and fat grams I will have. My problem is that in a situation like this I can easily lose focus and in a weak moment say "I want something decadent!"
It is never as satisfying as I would like and then I will beat myself up over it for weeks afterward. This is my stumbling block.
I can't stay home all the time and have control over every bite I eat. How do I lighten up a little and let go of the need to be in complete control????
This really frightens me because eventually I will have to maintain my weight loss and I can't live the rest of my life like this. HELP!!!!

    Give yourself one day off for good behavior (staying on task so long and being in control). Save up your calories for that time out with your sister. Then follow up with a few extra exercises. emoticon Make sure to get back on track the next day.

    Thank you, I intellectually know all these things. I just need to stop feeling out of control and go one day at a time.

    Lighten up on yourself a little. You have prepared well. You know what you are having. Enjoy the lunch with your sister and if you do decide to splurge, then make that a decision not a loss of control. It's part of life to enjoy things, not something to be avoided at all costs. If you try to avoid all things yummy, you will eventually give in and go overboard. Remember one healthy meal doesn't make you skinny and one unhealthy meal doesn't make you fat. Our health and size is the result of many, many meals. Make most of them healthy and you'll be fine. Have a great day. emoticon
