Yesterday I did very well...or so I thought...

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

...and then I realized I actually messed up big time.

The messing up did not begin when I lost all control and put all the sweets in my mouth that my husband had just bought. It started actually rather early in the day.

My breakfast consisted of one Tbs of peanut butter. Lunch was a small shrimp taco. I felt good about myself, because I ate very little and actually what I consumed was quite healthy.

When I started losing control in the evening I realized I had set myself up for failure. By eating less than 400 calories the entire day I was prone to losing control.

What upset me most was that I know so much better than to starve myself. I keep telling myself that whether I am hungry or not, in order to succeed, I MUST make good choices the entire day.

So where do I go from here? I am putting this day behind me, move forward, and begin tomorrow with a healthy, nutritious meal.

I am so glad mistakes do not define me, but they help me and motivate me to learn and do better on my journey to health.

    I'm sure you've heard this before but its all about healthy choices. I break my own rules all the time too and I think if I eat less that I will lose the weight but the body rebels!! Now that I am back in the swing of things I have been making much healthier choices. I am being mindful of protein and fiber especially and am tracking (that's the best indicator ever) Since I have been eating better I am feeling more full and more satisfied. I keep thinking that I am eating too much because I'm not as hungry and think...... I must've gone over my calories for the day but lo and behold the past couple of days I"ve had a small deficit. I am still not going to get on the scale (for me that has been dangerous lately) So I will just keep on trying to do the right thing and as another member reminds me....... just trust the process. It may be slow but slow is what works. After all, I've got a whole year now until I have to wear shorts or put on a bathing suit again!! LOL!!

    It's good that you figured out exactly what was wrong. It won't make it "easy" to keep it from happening again, but easiER, I hope!

    Thank you. It is all a balancing act. We can do it. Just like we learned to ride a bike, skate, hula hoop , This is a strange thing to work on but yet it seems it should just be so simple. Much success on your journey! sandy

    Thank you for writing about it as seeing it in black and white makes me realize that I've been doing the same thing! I eat so little during the day that by the time evening gets here I'm in binge mode or close to it!
