What the???

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Yesterday started out as a normal day. Morning planning for what to eat during the day with the knowledge that I will be going out to dinner with hubby to celebrate anniversary and valentines days. My train of thought and good intentions were totally forgotten once I got to work and saw the 3 open boxes of girl scout cookies and the open box of Russell Stover candies out on the counter for everyone to share. Where is my will power I thought to myself....only one, one of each, okay, just a couple cookies and a couple chocolates with my coffee that will be ok...
It's unfortunate I can't stop that train of thought, you know, that voice that says "oh, go ahead. Just a little bit won't hurt". Once it starts I cannot rein it in therefore the rest of the day went on with a little bit of trail mix and a little bit of the other kind of trail mix then this piece of candy and that piece of candy...everything looks so little, oh, why not! Just "a little" more...
I had mannaged to fill myself with an apple and several handfuls of granola, cranberries, peanuts mms, you know those "healthy" trail mixes whos serving sizes are smaller than the cup of a human hand. Oh well, eventhough full I still went out to dinner with my husband because I have been begging him to take me out for years so full or not I was going!! By the time my dinner came I had already finished 1/3 of the appetizer and swallowed 2 cosmopolitans with a third on it's way. Then drank another on the way home or was it 2 more... and having such a great time because all of the stress was gone and I had not a care in the world. I was having a great time, which is something that doesn't come around but maybe once a light-year or two... Once home with all of my inhibitions down or more correctly gone, out came the 1/2 box of frozen yogurt...yum yum yum the perfect way to end a stressful week --- back in the day when I was skinny----but now that I am fat I don't stop with just one bowl, why not finish the whole box?!!! Oh golly...I now bow my head and like Eeyore walk away till another day....

    It takes time and practice to break free of these things. And even so we occasionally have setbacks. Don't give in to negative self-talk. You deserve to have a healthy body. God didn't make junk. I had a bad few days with too much sodium, fat, and sugar, and my weight went up again. But I will press on to the goal. Don't give up. God bless you on this journey to a healthy lifestyle.
