Then week was so busy that I kept forgetting to weigh in the morning. And then I broke out in horrible acne and was completely hormonally unhappy. So that explained the cookie eating depression from last week, it was just hormones taking control of my mind and mouth. Once I realized that, it was much easier to rein it in and take control. When I did get on the scale it was mid-day and said something insanely scary and I decided to just ignore it!
So, the super busy week went by and I had my eating under control. I even went through some sugar withdrawls again after all the cookies, not fun. But I had the weekend to myself, the Hubby and boys were off camping. I was really scared that I would not eat right when I was all alone. That I might go buy a huge bag of Dorritos, sit on my couch and watch Game of Thrones in the dark all weekend. I could feel that I wanted that a little bit.
A few things kept me from doing that:
#1 This Blog. I could not come back here and report that I did that. I couldn't.
#2 The Month of No Excuses Challenge. I actually woke up one morning thinking "that was an idiotic idea, challenging a bunch of people to diet with me for a month. Now I can't quit". Cuz I wanted to quit. But now I've drug a bunch of others into this, including my Sister M, and I can't quit.
#3 Where the Hell Would that Get Me? It would get me right back in Size 16 jeans. And I don't like those jeans. In fact, I freaking hate those jeans. I threw those jeans out.
So I didn't do it!!! I ate right! I did the right thing, and it was actually pretty easy! And it FELT good! I looked that temptation in the eyes, I and said "No, no thanks". I kept calm, and I carried on. w00t! The scales, however, are not participating in this celebration. They have been anywhere from 149.5 to 153 in the last week. Today, my official weigh in day, they say 151 and I accept that. (Next week they better say 149 though)
I hope you are doing GREAT! Leave a comment and tell me how it is going. Thank you for being here for me and all your encouragement over the last 18 or so months. I used all the goodwill this week and it really helped!
