Default I had an off plan weekend

I knew that when Aunt Flo came to visit that I was going to have an extremely hard time with controlling my cravings and keeping my hands off food. I'm thinking I need to see my doc about her cause I've been having an increasingly hard time with it every month. Everything about me is amplified and uncontrollable.

I had already decided that when she came to visit that I would take the worst days (which are the first 2 days) easy and I would make an effort to stay on plan but if I started getting crazy I'd go ahead and have what I wanted. No need to make myself (and my family) even more crazy by trying to control insanity.

She shows up early Saturday morning and right off I'm going nuts.
But food wise I did alright. I ate pretty much what I wanted but I didn't overeat and I tried to make wise choices. One thing I did was I still kept track of everything I put in my body. That seemed to help me make better decisions at my next meal.

So anyway, I started my weight loss journey at the beginning August and here it is at the end of August and I've only had 2 days off plan and I'm ok with that. I don't feel bad about it, I don't feel any guilt or worthlessness. I don't feel depressed about it. I actually feel pretty great about it.

Good for you! Guilt and worthlessness do not lead to success in my opinion, just to eating more. I think it's a good idea to keep track of what you eat even when it's not on plan. Might as well see how far off you are and then when you don't lose what you want, you can see why.

Two days off plan in a month is pretty darn good. Just think - if we only ate too much two days per month we wouldn't have gotten to the place we're at now in the first place, right?

I'm really glad you don't feel guilty and worthless, not a good way to start a new week. It will however be interesting to see how your day goes today after satisfying your cravings. *For me* the worst part was the aftermath. Especially if I would eat sugary stuff. Hope you don't struggle getting back into the groove.

So far I've been fine today but it's only 9:50 am my time. Funny thing is most women I know crave sugary stuff during that time. I tend to crave meat and salty crunchy things. And by meat I mean rare red meat.

I found that I must crave before AF, last week I cracked almost every afternoon and grabbed that darn peanut butter jar... surprise! yesterday here comes the hag. This is my first AF since I had my baby almost 4 months ago so I didn't know that she was on the way. I guess now I know better for when its on the way and will do as I did last week, eat what I wanted but try using good judgement on how much of it to put into my mouth. I don't feel guilty what so ever, but hubby did make me feel bad on Saturday when he "scolded" me for giving him a kiss that tasted like peanutbutter (he knows peanut butter tends to be one of my weaknesses).

Keeping track of it is a real good idea. Then you really are making choices because you know where your at all the time. You did a good job!
