That title stands for Discouragement, plus Discouragement, plus Achievement.
Discouragement I : Though my scale day is tomorrow, I peeped and I have not lost a pound along the past week. I know it is normal, but I feel discouraged all the same.
Discouragement II : My supervisor sent me her comments on my thesis and she utterly destroyed the first chapter. She corrected things she never objected to before, and is asking me to go back three years in my research and do something different. Huge, ah!
Achievement : I did not binge or break my food plan. I just sobbed a little –I am very tired of studying, and there is still a little girl inside me asking for daddy now and then– and then started to see how I could carry out what she wants. When hungry, I grilled chicken breast, made a salad and ate that. I also ate a raw carrot for fiber.
And… that has been my day. I have one more year to finish my thesis, so I am starting to think that BY THEN I will be thin, right?
