in need of encouraging words..quick!
Ok, so here's whats going on. Yesterday, after being on a diet for about 3 weeks (the longest I've ever been able to stick with it) I started to get really frustrated because I was so hungry, and the only food I could eat was just gross. But I was strong and just kept with it. But then, when I went to watch my boyfriend's football scrimmage, his mom asked me if I wanted a Tootsie Pop, and it wasn't until after I ate it that I remembered that I was on a diet! But I figured it was just one little sucker, how much damage can it do? So then when I went home, I was still really hungry, but with my diet I can't eat after 7:30 and it was 9 or so, and my boyfriend was making meatball subs. I was starved! I couldn't help myself, so I ate one. But then, after reasoning that I had already messed up for the day, I ate a bowl of ice cream too! So when I woke up this morning, I told myself that I had had a one day relapse, and that it was time to get back on track again. I did ok until my mom was cooking some alphabet noodles and I ate two huge bowls. She told me I had had enough, but when she went outside, I snuck 3 bags of fruit snacks up to my room! I've seen this pattern before. It happens every time I go on a diet. I think well it's just one day, it won't hurt, and it turns into an everyday thing, little by little. But also, I have 4-H camp all next week starting tomorrow, and I know I'll be so tempted to stop by the vending machine during my late night partying and grab a bag of Doritos, or to feed from the cabin stash of goodies all night, because all my skinny friends are hungry, and they can eat whatever they want whenever they want and not gain an ounce! I'm so frustrated now. I'm sorry this rant is so long, but I want so desparately to lose this weight and to stick with my plan, and I need some encouraging words. Can anyone help?
