i cant believe i did that....

Friday, June 28, 2013

only a week into my diet and I already cheat:( im so upset with myself, it almost making me sick. I want to healthy so bad and I eat McDonalds, movie theater popcorn, candy, ect! If I stay in my house than I exercise, eat well and feel good about myself, but as soon as I go out, I go back to my old habits. and my dad doesn't make me feel any better with his constant side comments like "well you 'diets' going well" and "well you really stuck to that one". I know he means well and only wants the best for me, but he can sometimes be a tiny bit insensitive. he's tall and thin and I got my moms great genes so I am short and chubby:( love how that works out... emoticon

    I actually plan a cheat day once or twice a month where I don't worry about what I eat (well less of a day and more like going out to dinner). These have included going to the melting pot (fondue + drinks is like over 2500 calories in one meal). My last one was going out for indian food and then to a dessert bar before going to a concert. I ate what I wanted, but I still had control and didn't go overboard. I went over my calories for the day, but I still lost weight that week. Some days i get so hungry that no matter how much i eat i am not satiated! Occasionally I pig out on pizza!

    You are going to slip up once in a while. The important thing is to pick yourself back up! Tomorrow is a clean slate! Ok, so you messed up, that just means that tomorrow you can do better!

    This also may have showed you some of your triggers. Why did you go to Mcdonalds? Was there a better fast food place you could have gone? I tend to go to panera a ton because their calorie counts are posted on the menu and there are tons of lower calorie choices! Mcdonalds posts their calories too. Could you have chosen a food option? Maybe movies are triggers too. Try bringing your own snack next time? Or get the kids/smallest size popcorn and share it. If you know you are going out ahead of time, you can plan your choices which will end up with you making better ones! I always look up menus online before I go out (or look up nutrition at the restaurant if it is spontaneous, yay smart phones).

    Binging happens, it's what you do afterward that counts.

    As for your dad, that's unfortunate that he is making comments like that. If he is around when that is happening.. is he buying it? Maybe you could sit down and have a talk about it and needing better support.

    I know how you are feeling, I'm on a low carb diet and it makes eating out a bit difficult, I normally end up cheating once a week. I limit it to one day and one meal. Don't get discouraged that's our downfall, I used to get upset with myself and give up, now I just limit it to the one time n continue the rest of the time eating right. Even with my cheat times I lost 50 pounds. You can do it, don't be hard on yourself and don't give up!!!
