Went to WW this morning and am up 1.6 lbs over the last two weeks. Since I was eating pretty much everything not nailed down, it’s not at all a surprise. I confess that I stopped at Dunkin Donuts on the way home and had breakast of a coffee roll and a small bottle of OJ — but I accounted for that and still managed to only use 1 flex point for the day.
My big accomplishment was not going into the grocery store. I didn’t need to go, having made two different runs (at different stores, for different things) and a trip to the farm stand for fresh local veggies. But this morning I wanted more more more of something snacky. I drove to the store and parked in the lot, but sat there for a few minutes before getting out of the car. From somewhere I found the wherewithall to just decide not to go in today. If I entered the store, I knew I would not be able to not buy something I would regret later. So instead I just started the car, turned around and went home.
I did not starve. I ate a big healthy salad with edamame, vegetables, and protein, plus cherries for lunch. Dinner was a pork chop, corn on the cob, big fat Canadian tomatoes, and a bowl of fresh strawberries with pudding yogurt for dessert. A rich fudgy low-fat fudge bar made a satisfying snack. I’m floating away in water and Crystal Light but am full and ready to stop eating. Food for tomorrow is planned out.
I’m just taking this one day at a time, remembering my goal of 10% of my current weight off by Christmas. It’s doable. Today was Day One.
