Day - 29 - Resist Food Pushers
Sunday, November 01, 2015
Social eating is always hard. We have lots of relatives and friends and lots of parties. Everyone cooks their specialty and always tons of desserts. I'm sure these will be huge challenges with the holidays coming. Yesterday, no one tried to get me to eat much (except jello shots which I had no intention of eating/drinking. One of the best things about not eating wheat is that food pushers don't try to push their desserts on me (usually they have wheat in them) Of course there is always ice cream and that is one my favorites for sure. I love vanilla ice cream with raspberries on top or peaches, strawberries, blackberries.... or any of the myriad of mixed flavors available. I stayed within calorie range again today. I read my cards, said NO CHOICE especially on my way home from the match when I wanted to stop to get something to eat but told myself I had the food for my plan at home and I actually got home and ate. I kept the sabotaging thoughts at bay by asking myself what do you really want most? I did have a snack size chocolate candy today but I just had 1 not 10. Gave myself credit for that and for not having ANY yesterday. I really didn't dwell on it yesterday though. I had some cold shrimp and plain salad with a drizzle of dressing at the party. I was going to have the shrimp and fruit salad but no one brought any fruit at all so I substituted :) salad. It was great because it didn't have dressing already on it. I had a fun time without eating crazy which I certainly would have if I hadn't planned. Anyway, I lost 3 lbs since my last official weigh-in. I know it won't keep being that much. I know I won't always be this determined but I'm certainly trying to be. Today would have been a disaster without my Beck tools to fall back on. Let's keep on sparkin' and Beckin' WE CAN DO IT!!!
