View Full Version : Superbowl was NOT worth it!

So i am pretty dissapointed in myself after yesterday. I don't even LIKE football. Me and my boyfriend decided we weren't going to go to any parties yesterday but we ended up at one! We ended up at one and i ended up drinking WAYYYY too much and eating junk food. I mean I didn't do as bad with the food as i normally would have but I am counting calories so junk adds up FAST. PLUS all that beer and wine i consumed. blahhh. Like i said i don't even like football:mad:

anyways when i got home I guess the stomach of steel that i used to have couldnt handle the alcohol and junk so i puked:(:dizzy: and had a dumb alcohol fight with my boyfriend (why did i decide it was a good idea to drink again?)

I've lost 10 pounds so far and i'm REALLY dissapointed in myself. BUT my friend just sent me a picture she took of me last night and even though its only a small part of my actual body I actually don't have any top rolls, my face looks thinner, AND my arms and shoulders dont bulk out as much anymore. It was nice because i am having trouble seeing the changes, maybe it's cause i'm a tall girl and i'm around 205 ughhhh. I feel like i messed up because all i want today is chineese food! HUNGOVER FOOD! but i will not cave! And i will post my picture as motivation for myself once my post count is higher:)

First of all, congrats on the 10lbs so far! We all have blips from time to time, especially when it's a special event/holiday etc. The important thing is to go right back on track the next day; 1 little bump in the road isn't going to ruin all your progress so far. Don't beat yourself up about it, just dust yourself off and carry on... GL :)

I know it's trite, but it happens! We can't expect a smooth road the whole way through. As long as you learn from the bumps that's all that matters. Great job so far!

Congrats on the 10 lbs! I dont really drink, but the food at the SB party we were at was pretty good. Of course, no veggies or fruits anywhere. Plus they had those little cocktail weenies! How did she know I cant resist those things?!! So, I have decided not to live in the past today and just start today good. *le sigh*

I love Chinese food - they usually have a diet menu of plain steamed veggies with a protein. I always get chicken with broccoli. The sauce comes on the side, so you can just drizzle a little bit on your meal. It ends up being moderately healthy.

I was thinking of doing something similar today! Love there crunchy broccoli :) instead I ate my first meal an hour ago ( not the best move) but it was just grilled chicken and black bean hummus on whole grain bread with lettuce and Tomato. Yum! Now I'm at my parents and my mom bough some instant miso soup which is only 30 cals a package! I'm trying to stay away from processed food but I may have to make a cup if I get hungry later :)

I encourage you to explore doing events like parties and get-togethers with an intentional eye on not eating. Dissociating socializing from excessive food consumption is SUCH a big hurdle and yet very important for many folks trying to normalize their eating patterns. I have personally found it very freeing and enjoy the time spent with the people more, because my focus is entirely on them and what we're celebrating, not on food.

Not everyone needs to do it, but if you find yourself socially overeating it is very worthwhile to break those cues apart and retrain yourself to eat based on satiety and not on social cues. One is a profound abuse of the body and food, one is not :)
