I’m HOME!! When I walked through the door I said, “That’s it! I’m not going anywhere for 6 months!” Then my husband turned around and responded, “don’t forget next weekend we have a wedding out of state.” Geesh! WHEN will it END?
So I have a confession. After I posted last night I did hit the Hershey kisses again, then I made popcorn and THEN I ate about 6 chocolate chip cookies. I’m not kidding. I was out of control! That’s what I meant about my post yesterday. I know my food journal (at that point) wasn’t horrendous it was more the feeling of wanting to eat constantly. I kept it in check most of the day by turning to melon but I just couldn’t shake it. Honestly, I don’t think it would have mattered if I was at Mom’s or not it was one of “those” days. Today was just as bad. Why does this happen to some of us? I know I can’t be the only one.
You know I have to analyze this, right?
Did I post about it being too hard at my Mom’s and then made it true by splurging on the available snacks? I sure wasn’t hungry. Could I have controlled myself or did I, in some way, give my self permission to overeat by saying it was too hard with all the temptations?
Then I started to think about self-fulfilling prophecies and allowing negative messages to invade your mind that slow down your progress and turn success into failure. Don’t we all do this? I know I did it for years. I’m still doing it after reaching and maintaining my goal weight for over a year. The only way I know how to stop it is to accept yourself, what you did and move on.
Back to basics, that’s what I say. Tomorrow I will be starting a fresh week. I will be going to a meeting and weighing in. Facing the music, being accountable and doing what I do best. Expect some new recipes, ideas and updates. I’m hitting it hard core this week! ;~)
