Hello people. Another Wednesday, another weigh in. I knew it wouldn’t be good. I had a strong start to the week but a cold, a weekend full of eating out and a sick kid finally did me in. Oh, and did I mention the super bowl party? Yeah. So the damage was done.
+ 4.8 Pounds
76.4 lbs Lost to Date
So here is the thing. I am disappointed yes, but I am not defeated by this. It does happen that I slip up from time to time, and it is one of the things I am beginning to work on in therapy. One of the things we talked about on Monday is how to get right back on track after having a splurge. For example, Mr. Goat and I had a date night on Saturday night. And I do not regret any of the fabulous tapas dishes that we shared, dessert included. However, for me, the combo of that and the Super Bowl Party the next day made it harder for me to get back on track. I can and should allow myself meals that are beyond what I normally “should” have, but I need to learn to to get back to it right away when I do.
One of the other things that I am working on is eating snacks. I realize that this might be odd for some people. I have a real habit of eating lightly and only at meals so that I hoard my points for dinner. As I’ve been learning about things I realize that I am not doing myself any favors this way. I need to start to regulate my system and eat more often so that I can eat smaller amounts. So I am working on eating every 3-4 hrs to me. I won’t lie, it is hard. It is hard to let myself stop and take time to have a snack. It is hard to stop at just a smallish snack.
I hope my cold will go away and I can get back to the gym soon. I also hope that little goat gets better too and heads back to preschool/daycare. But regardless I know I can tighten up what I am doing and eating and lose this weight….again….sigh. But I will.
