When the Going Gets Rough
Saturday, June 29, 2019
I thought I had this in the bag today, boy was I ever wrong! I watched my grand children tonight and it was pizza night. The only success I had was in only eating two slices instead of my usual four. All the time eating it I felt guilty, and knew that I was going to be over my calorie allotment for the day. I need to post it right after I write this. Am I upset with myself? Yes I am. Am I going to let it get me down? No I am not! The lessons I learned from tonight are: 1. I need to make a salad to eat before I ever eat a slice of pizza 2. Be more mindful in my eating 3. Don't sit by the pizza box, have that in the kitchen instead of on the table within reach 4. One slice of pizza will suffice and 5. Remember how awful I feel after eating more than one slice. Yes, I can still eat pizza as long as I eat only one slice and fill up on salad first so that I'm content with only one slice, preferably thin crust only. My body feels terrible and I need to remember how I feel after eating pizza. I'm grateful that I am able to find the positives out of my negative eating tonight. By identifying the positives over my negative actions, I am able to look at the whole picture and form positive steps to keep me from repeating my negative actions. That's what successful weight is all about. It's about identifying our negative behaviors, analyzing what is needed to change said behaviors, then fix them and incorporate them in our weight loss program. Hallelujah, I think I am finally getting the hang of what is needed in order to be successful in the weight loss game! Just a side note, I was within my calorie allotment, but my fat, protein and carb in take were out of whack.
