Beck Trek - Chapter 7 - Day 16 - Prevent Unplanned Eating
Saturday, September 12, 2015
"Once I accept the fact that I have to give up spontaneous eating, dieting will be easier."
Judith S. Beck, Ph.D.
My weekday resistance muscle is so strong. I can resist even the slightest crumb of food not on my food plan, Monday through Friday at 5 PM.
Sadly, my weekend resistance muscle hasn't had much practice at strengthening...and it remains a bit on the weak side. My weekend unplanned eating has been known to completely destroy all the hard work I do during the week. Somehow I have convinced myself that I CAN NOT be the same strong person on the weekend that I am during the week.
Good thing for me that day 16 fell on the weekend.
I've had three good weekends in a row. Today and tomorrow make good weekend #4. My thinking is not quite there yet. I won't lie. I miss spontaneous eating on the weekends.
It's hard to get past feeling like I deserve to eat whatever I want after being a nun all week.
Today I am telling myself that I deserve to be thin, and that I want to be thin more than I want to eat whenever and whatever I want. I have "NO CHOICE" index cards on my fridge and my pantry door. I'm keeping busy cleaning and going through stuff to donate to charity. It feels good to get rid of some clutter.
Just think how great it will feel to see the scale go down instead of up on the weekend!
