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.
