Well I've postponed this post by one day, but I suppose I shouldn't push it back any further. I had my official weigh in for last week and I gained one pound. And I've heard it all: one pound is nothing, you're going to have weeks that don't go well, weight is always fluctuating... True as they may be, I know that this one is my fault. I didn't lose for 2 weeks, and then I gained, and it's all due to my eating. When it took me 5 weeks to lose 10 pounds, I got discouraged. It's not coming off fast enough! I don't want to deprive myself of the sweets! Truth be told though, going back to old habits so quickly frustrates me even more.
Time to fix it. I did decent yesterday, ate my "clean" meals, and had very minimal slip ups through the day. I made it until almost 4:00 before rummaging in my car for some stale popcorn and ate a few handfuls driving home from work. Now, I have to tell you here though, that I did not eat popcorn because I was hungry. It was pure necessity to keep me awake! I almost fell asleep and hit 2 mailboxes before resorting to the snacking out of turn. I also ended up having 3 fingerlicks of frosting, 3 potato chips, and 2 bite size brownies before heading to bed. BLURGH...
Today? So far pretty good! My only slip up, 3 hershey kisses. BUT! I resisted the temptation for the chocolate chip bagel and the peanut butter frosted chewy fudge brownie. 2 things I hate to have to pass up! But I did it. And I feel that small victory! I also spent some time reading about the contestants in a new competition on http://winloseorblog.blogspot.com. Perhaps they'll all encourage me some!
Tomorrow? Only time will tell. I'll get there again... hopefully before I gain any more weight back! I have to share a few quotes with you though that I will be displaying at my desk and in my kitchen:
"There's no such thing as a bad day - only bad moments in a good day."
"Nothing is impossible; the word itself says, 'I'm possible!'"
"Every day is a new day unless we drag in the past."
"The only one who can limit your possibilities is you."
"A bad attitude is like a flat tire. If you don't change it, you'll never go anywhere."
