Elladorine
04-02-2012, 10:46 AM
Because while I stayed on plan yesterday, I wasn't entirely happy that I felt out of control with my cravings due to stress from last night. I bought two products I normally try to stay away from, but at least chose no-sugar-added versions. If I can serve myself moderate portions throughout the week without binging, I'll feel more ok about occasionally giving into these kinds of sweets, but I'm still wondering if it'll be better to avoid them altogether.

Riddy

Because someone at work gave me a pair of Tommy Hilfiger denim capris that are too big for her. I've been buying only cheap/used clothes along the way, and these are cute! And like new! They're too tight on me now, but I want to wear them SOON!

I've fallen off the wagon lately but today is the day to start fresh!

I made a delicious and healthy breakfast so I'm off to a great start.

I want to bust my tail in the gym this morning then in the afternoon I'll be walking 3 miles to my new job to fill out paperwork.

All my exercise for the day is in place so I just have to be mindful of my eating. No binging, no eating while emotional and not hungry.

I can do this! I will not let a few days of emotional eating ruin my efforts of the past year!

Actually, a couple of reasons:

1. May is going to be loaded with temptation (my birthday, vacation to Portugal), so I have to have a good April.

2. I can't figure out what I would want to cheat on. I can think of foods I would like right now - a Cadbury cream egg or five, for starters - but nothing I desperately want to have. So I will just keep on my plan since I don't have a better alternative right now.

So I don't ever have to go up in sizes and buy new clothes! (unless maybe I get pregnant down the line.. but not for a while)

Having to buy new is expensive and makes me feel bad about myself.. Plus I hate having half a closet of just too small clothing that are cute and go about in sweats/sweatshirts since I feel too big and don't want to squeeze into the cute stuff...

My grandma passed almost a year ago. I miss her so much. She was definitely my biggest weight loss cheerleader, and I know she's watching over me and is proud of what I've accomplished.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. :( :hug: My grandma has always been my closest supporter and I'm thrilled to live in decent driving distance from her now to make visits easier (I grew up in the Midwest but now live in Vegas, and she's only a four hour drive away from here in California). My aunt also lives with her and we've become quite close since I've moved out here, which has been a godsend after feeling so lost after losing both of my parents.

I'd like to think they're cheering me on as well; my mom and I both struggled with dieting together back in the day (lost her to cancer in '96), and that particular "before" photo was the very last photo I had taken with my dad before he passed away (lost him to cancer in '04). Family is so important and I would like to think they'd be proud of where I am now. :)
