Chapter 28, Day 62 - Safe zone only allowed?

Sunday, June 17, 2018

In the "mustering" up what it takes to lose /keep the weight off, yesterday's food event was another day of learning what doesn't work. Interesting....I felt strong like a warrior before I left, but then lost my focus. I snacked on appetizers, had a second helping of mac & cheese (stuff's evil in the calorie dept) and I had a more than a bite of dessert. I batted away the few messages my conscience sent my way. I can't blame alcohol, because I didn't drink. Busted.

Am I allowed out of the safe zone of my house & pantry, then? The one and only time I lost 38#, I only ate at my home until I got within 2# of goal weight. (I've been chasing that number ever since...but I guess the "chase" is more like a limp.)

I'm going to get back to "mustering" up what it takes and working the plan. The no snacks rule is a good one in all my circumstances. It will keep me out of trouble in or out of the safe zone.

I'm laced up and ready for my morning walk.

Avoided one of DIL's fabulous oatmeal cookies DH brought home. Love 'em with my coffee, so that's something.
Back in the safe zone, with Father's Day celebration food event behind me
Nice morning for a walk

Stay the course with Plan

Wishing you an awesome day!

    Hey, don't make one bad day, ruin your focus. Just pick yourself up, and continue with your plan.

    Well at least the celebration is over. Back on track. I always try to think before I eat, "How will I feel later?' Stops me from over doing it. I was just talking to my hubby about Paris, they foods they eat there and they are slim, wonder how they do it? I will have to research that:) In case I ever go there.
    Good job leaving the cookies alone. Glad you had a nice walk. I did too, got sprinkled on. Happy Father's day and Sunday emoticon

    We all have our downfalls and at least you’re so optimistic! Have a great day too!
