BooHoo to AHA!
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
I was up one pound at my weigh in today. I started to take an emo dive but held off ' til I got home. Instead of getting depressed I went back over my tracker and discovered , Aha!, that I had taken more liberties with my extra points than I should have. So before I began to beat myself up, I added up all the extra points that had crept in without my counting them in the past week. I was quite shocked. I had tracked but not counted.
LOL.. I had a pre-maintainance kind of mindset that seemed quite logical to me at the time. Too bad I'm still 100 pounds from maintainance. Now there's the LOL!! Isn't it amazing the games we play with the food fairy??
So today I am tracking my extras and will stop before I reach the magic number. All-in-all, I had a very full and productive week, with very few serious asides.. I'm going to have to let it go as another learning experience and move on.
In the past, this would have been about quitting time, but not this time. I'm still very happy with my food plan, and I'm willing to take the extra steps to log my extras. The outcome will be worth it.
