Day out yesterday and eye opening weekend

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

I went to the dr. yesterday for a follow up on my cpap machine and how it's working (I lost a little weight and posted it on my tracker). Fifteen minutes and $65 later, we were out the door! That was a lot of money for a "Hi how you doin" kinda dr. visit!!

My step son went with me and, since we were in the "Big City" we went to Olive Garden. I had 2 bowls of the Chicken Gnocci soup and 2 helpings of salad. I also had Asiago Garlic Alfredo with Chicken Fritta on spaghetti noodles. I hardly ate ANY of the entree so I took it home for supper.

This weekend, I went NUTS!! I tried my best to eat right and did better than I thought I would, but I have realized weekends and eating out is going to be tough for me. I am determined though, to see this through. I will see this through.

One thing I didn't do that I normally do is beat myself up because of my over eating. That is a positive... Just got to get my weekends on track.

    Oh girl, I know what you mean!! Normally, once I mess up, I just continue on that down slope and never return. I have been heavy my whole life so I am not new to this. The discouragement and disappointment is great when I messed up.

    One thing that is different now is that my dad is wheel chair bound, overweight and he has several medical issues. He won't hardly leave the house because of all the issues he has. I saw myself in his shoes (and actually, I have been experiencing some of his conditions and it scared me) and am trying my best to change. One thing I did this time is that I verbally CHOSE not to beat myself up. I had a whole conversation about how it is OK that I can just start where I stopped. I had to keep telling myself that it was ok that I still had the rest of my life to "get it". Also, I had to remind myself that I didn't gain weight over night and my thought patterns have been created through years of self abuse. It's very hard and I can't say I'm going to be on point next time, but this time I did it and, for me, ANY small thing is a victory!! Plus, I hate to say this, but I didn't eat as much as I normally would have.... I would have went until I was sick.

    I surely hope this helps you. I'm going to friend you and maybe we can help each other along the way!

    Well done on your weight loss and not beating yourself up. Can I ask how you managed to change that, I can't let go that I've probably ruined all my hard work and feel like just eating anyway!
