My Willpower Faltered and I Caved...

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

For the past 3 weeks, I've been diligent about eating at the low end of my calorie range and it's been paying off. I feel like less food has been satisfying me and I've been losing weight steadily.

A few days ago, I started to struggle. PMS set in and I was moody and feeling less satisfied with my usual allotment of calories. But, I muddled through, with positive self-talk.

Now, PMS is behind me, so it should be smooth sailing. But I feel so unsatisfied with what I'm eating. I ate near the top of my calorie range both yesterday and today. Though I'm grateful that I had enough willpower to not completely overeat, I still felt like I couldn't control myself. I hate, hate, hate that feeling, and boy am I feeling it right now.

I think I'm feeling this way partially because I'm a little fatigued. It's been another rough work week and I had a couple of late nights. I also got up extra early this morning to work out for 90 minutes.

In any event, I hope that this is just a blip and things return to normal tomorrow. Maybe it will even help to jump start my slowing weight loss.
