Disappointed with myself tonight
I'm having a problem with...well..drinking. For the first 6 months or more of weight loss, I only drank once or twice, because I know, when I drink, it lowers my inhibitions, and I overeat. So I allowed myself one glass of wine, on like two special occasions. Then, as I got closer to goal, I let myself have one glass of wine when I wanted--but I had to give up my evening fruit to balance the calories. Eventually, when I reached my original goal, I upped it to two glasses. Then, I let it be three, which is really fun. But a few nights I've had four--like Halloween, New Years, etc., and was a mess. So I'm working hard at reminding myself--even after I've had a few--that three IS my limit. One thing I've been hard and fast about, no matter what, is not eating extra after. Tonight, though, I came home and had what amounted to 4 extra cups of raw veggies. Calorie-wise, it's like 120 calories. Slippery-slope and not-in-control-wise--well...I'm about to hit "post" for accountability.
