Ok so I have decided to weigh in on Sunday at my mother in laws house (so I do not have the urge to weigh every hour) and I have lost 7 POUNDS! I almost cried. So that was the good now here is the bad I so cheated last night and sat down and ate two spoon fulls of raw cookie dough! I know that sounds nasty but it looked so good in my sisters frig! ok So here we go on our next week ordering zumba to add to my plan....Will keep you up to date!!
Congrats on the 7 pound loss! And two spoonfuls of raw cookie dough isn't too terrible...it's not a whole tube! A lot of people here subscribe to being perfectly on plan, but I tend to be a little more forgiving(so maybe I'm not best to address this issue hehe).
And cookie dough isn't gross, it's yummy. That's why it has it's own ice cream.
I think the biggest thing for me right now is not mindlessly shoving food in my mouth. After I've done that a few times I look back on it and think omg, did I really eat that much. But if I plan for it then that's different.
I have to be lenient as well. I believe I have binge eating disorder and everytime I get to strict on myself it causes me to really go crazy. I've found taking a more relaxed approach has been not only a fun challenge but a lot less stressful.
That is great! And don't beat yourself up too much for your little slip up - as a pp said, some people can splurge a little, and some can't - you just need to learn which camp you do best in. Me, I have a treat, not every day, but honestly, most days. I find when I don't it will turn into a very large binge for me, but I can also stop at just a taste or two and feel completely satisfied
