Detox Sucks...

Monday, October 28, 2013

So I probably should be writing a cheery, happy blog, but I am not in a happy place right now. So I weigh in with WW every Sunday and this past Sunday, I lost 9.2 pounds. On Sunday I was elated. On Sunday I was over the moon and pumped. I am grumpy.

I wanted to eat out in a restaurant so bad tonight. I could literally taste it in my mouth. I even did this weird thing that I tend to do and drive in circles...trying to fight off the craving for a juicy, greasy burger.

One would argue that you must live life in moderation. And I will. Just not now. I know me, if I fall off in the early stages, I will be setback a good month. First I have to jump start and detox myself, then I can be trusted to eat a burger with no fries.

To make matters worse, my BF, whom I love to death, order Chinese take out for his dinner. But I did it, I made it home and I made an omelet...Okay scrambled eggs with spinach and mushrooms. emoticon emoticon and had that for dinner. However, as the fried food smell wafted through the air...I became so cranky.

But you know what, I made the choices to put me in the position and it is up to me to get myself out of this position. One choice at a time.

In case you are wondering, I decided to have one square of chocolate. It was a nice small indulgence. Then I banged out my issues to my anonymous friends. Now I am relaxed and content again.

    Great job on the 9.2 pounds! I don't necessarily drive around in circle, but I will stare at things, like if I'm at the store I'll pick up something that I know I probalby shouldn't get, and just hold it and stare at it. Most of the time I can convince myself to put it back down.

    I'm glad you're having a better morning so far!

    Yes the first couple of weeks can be really rough! But it does get easier. Just keep saying no to yourself and get through each day.

    It helps to have your meals planned out and your refrigerator stocked with good foods and also it would be really nice if the boyfriend would cool it with the takeout.

    The "driving around in circles" is not weird. It's like walking up and down the grocery store aisles. There's even a term for it when it comes to eating disorders, "cruising".

    I'll say it again, it WILL get easier.

    Stay Strong!

    I glad everything worked out for you...Just a suggestion, have a chat with the BF. This is YOUR journey, YES! Support would be much appreciated! Set some boundaries, they're good for all us!
