[I'm an idiot and forgot it was a new month, so I'm re-posting what I posted earlier to the March thread.]

All right guys, I had a big moment of "What the f*** am I doing?" this morning. Last night before I went to bed I overindulged with muesli, eating much more than one serving, with lots of cream, when I'd already had my muesli for the day. I need the muesli for my mood, but any more than one 1/2 cup serving a day (41 gm. of carbs) will screw up my weight loss. In fact, it would be better if I could get away with only having 1/4 cup per day. I've been periodically overindulging on the stuff for several weeks now: with the calories from the extra cream as well, that has to be why I didn't lose weight last month.

It's so hard for me to cope with having any carbs (other than salad fixings) in the house, because I always want to overeat them. I need to get it into my thick head that while my one serving of muesli a day is allowed, eating any more than that counts as binge behavior. And I'm strongly committed to not engaging in binge behavior.

So what I'm doing, today, is fasting for 24 hours—not as some kind of punishment, but in order to think this through and get my head in the right place. I'm really angry with myself, for letting the muesli thing get out of hand. I need to cool down and fly straight.

Meanwhile, I made a new collage y'all might find amusing: it's called "superheroes baffled by world's largest pollen grain".
