Getting back into the swing of things from a 10-day break from work. 7 of those days were traveling/in Memphis & Mississippi. Being the first vacation through my weight loss journey, it was interesting.
I was determined to choose healthier options, not snack (so I could have some leeway at mealtimes). When the family stopped for Wendy's, I was asleep and the smell of it was so intense when they brought it back to the car but in a bad way, it was crazy. I purposely didn't go in because I wasn't hungry, especially for fast food but they brought me chicken wings. And eventually, I caved (bc I felt bad they bought them...such a dumb reason).
Then there were the restaurants. I wasn't as bad as I was in the past, but still not acceptable to what I'm trying to do now. (It just wasn't a fair fight, Memphis & Mississippi food) I gained at least 5 pounds back (didn't weigh for a couple days because I was so disappointed in myself). But, eating better the past 3 or 4 days has thankfully brought me back to what I was just before the trip.
Anyways, through this, I've learned that you have to have such accountability when eating around other people. I live alone so I'm not peer-pressured too much. But apparently I've got to stress to family and friends how important it is to stick with it. They're proud of what I'm doing but, I don't think they get how much I think about it.
Eesh, that's quite long. But I know if I use this wonderful place, it'll help in the accountability factor.
