DAY 17: I know better

Sunday, January 18, 2015

Eating got very off track yesterday afternoon. I had taken one daughter shopping for a dress and in the spirit of getting the job done we put off lunch until we were both very hungry. We did find a dress and then we quickly went to the mall food court. I got a reasonable selection (problem came later) which I virtually inhaled and which did not leave me feeling satisfied. We headed home soon after and when I got back home I felt so tired and unsatisfied (though probably not that hungry) that I munched on several things until I was overly full. This reinforces something that I know which is when I let myself get too hungry, I make bad choices. The first choice wasn't so bad in terms of calories, but I ate too fast and still craved something else to relax with. I should have thought through the day better. I don't like to bring snacks with me because I am prone to eat the snack even when I don't need it. It is sort of like money burning a hole in your pocket. When I have something with me, I tend to imagine I am hungry enough to need it. I am still winning the war but lost a little ground yesterday.

    Gonna be days like that! I am sorry to say that my own eating is out of control. I am trying not to beat myself over the head about it, though. I am doing well with leaving the sodas behind. Soon I can set a goal to get something else under control.

    I think maintenance must be a whole other world from just trying to get things under control in the first place. Sounds like it's not much easier!

    I have noticed something interesting about your background. Most of it is mathematical notation, but there are a few words interspersed in it. Some of them make sense with an equation, but there is one that intrigues me. There is the word "beard" in the upper right corner. Any significance?
