Old habits are hard to break!
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
I went home for a week to take care of some chores. I'm working in another state right now, so I return home every few months. I did "okay" on my food plan the first day....but WOW....the 2nd day I started to eat like a horse.
It was almost unconscious. Before I knew it, I was stuffing my face. I felt horrible physically. Being really "full" just doesn't feel good. I did track my cals for that 2nd day, it was something like 2600.
For the next 6 days, I continued to eat whatever I wanted and stopped tracking. I ate all my fave foods.
I'm back now after 7 days. THANKFULLY, I automatically got back on track again. I weighed myself and was actually "happy" that I only gained about 3 pounds. I thought I would have gained all my weight back.
I guess what I've learned about this is maybe I shouldn't go home until I'm more secure in my food plan. Maybe once I lose a good 40 or so pounds. It just seems like certain old habits just sneak up on you. Maybe being home triggered a lot of negative things for me.
Regardless, I am GRATEFUL that I'm on track again and can't wait to get rid of the 3 pounds so I can get back to where I was. I know they will come off fast and then I can continue the journey. :)
