100 lb. Club - My hand and mouth have betrayed me!

I didn't even realize what I was doing. Had to get something done by noon, and wasn't paying attention to much else. Someone had put a plate of very large cookies on the edge of my desk for every one to share.

My hand snuck out of it's own volition and took one and put it in my mouth. It didn't even register until the fourth or fifth bite - and by then it was mostly gone.

I am so annoyed with myself.

Well I am sorry to say I understand what you mean. I think habbits are hard to break. There have been times I have actually spit something out!

That cursed hand! It truly is our archenemy along with its cronies fork and spoon.

As for the mouth I often wish mine had a zipper or metal plate like Geena Davis's near the end of Beetlejuice.

I was off pop/soda for a new years resolution - went to a hockey game and got drinks for my family and myself, didn't think about it until hours later that I had drank a coke zero lol darn it!! It wasn't out of lack of will power, I just wasn't paying attention!

The question is did you stop after you finished the one cookie? Cause one cookie won't hurt you! A large plate of cookies can! :)

I absolve myself in advance for those times that I go off-plan unintentionally. If I feel too guilty, a small mistake can snowball into a full-fledged derailment. It's better to see the humor in the situation (Aren't our brains funny? How could I possibly forget I am on a diet?), have a little laugh, and then move the plate of cookies out of sight.

JPiper - I agree completely! At times I have dreamed of wiring my jaw shut!

what makes this worse is that I am doing the Atkins diet and any amount of carbs over 12-15 grams for the day will kick me out of ketosis, which means I have at least 2-4 days of hard core plan before I get back into it and start losing again.

I wish I could tell you all that I stopped with the one cookie. Well - technically I did. But then I was so angry at myself that it turned into a full blown binge and ate 3 snickers and some other stuff. Too embarrassed to admit everything I ate.

Why is this so difficult?!? I am trying to say okay - it happened - let it go. Started out fantastic today. I figure okay, yesterday was lost but today I am back on track.

I know what you mean you say ok that was once then that becomes one piece of chocolate then a little more food for dinner or dessert because sugar doesn't make you fat right? Then when you review at the end of the day you want to beat your head against the wall because the whole day was ruined. I go through those days all the time but you have to move pass it and keep going. We can all do it together.
