So, I was being a bit whiny the other day. Thanks to those who left comments, I’m mentally back in the game as it were. I didn’t mess up on food, or skip work-outs, so after I gave myself another pity party, all was better. I did think a bit about Princess Dieter‘s comment, I think perhaps I was adding too much salt to some foods…sometimes I just kind of crave salt, especially with eggs! So, I’m trying to watch that a bit more this week, hopefully if it was water weight, I’ll be able to shed some of that.
It’s not really getting easier, per se, to not comfort myself with food. But it’s definitely getting easier to anticipate that desire and keep myself busy doing other things. 😉
So, the weird thing is this – after feeling all bleh on Sunday after the weigh in, yesterday while getting ready for work, I noticed that to me I look a little smaller. This was the first day after losing 19 pounds that I actually felt that I could see a physical difference…albeit a small one. After that, I actually had a co-worker make a comment yesterday that I looked like I had lost a little. So, yay for mental boost!
Now, I don’t know if anyone else has this problem – but it always seemed that in the past when people would notice any weight loss with me…suddenly I would end up breaking a diet. I have not idea why that is. Someone makes a nice comment, I guess that makes me feel good and feel like I need to “reward” myself, and then after that, the diet just kinda spirals out of control. I guess that sounds kinda weird…but I’d like to keep my weight loss a “secret” as long as possible I suppose.
Of course the fact that I have observed that and can now anticipate that behavior as well probably helps. 😉
So, thanks again for the support guys, I am out of whiny-woman land…at least for a few more days! 🙂
This weekend will be interesting and filled with temptation – going to my Dad’s birthday party on Friday, then invited out with friends on Saturday…I need to email Allan with food questions…mrrrrr…
I hope everyone has a wonderful day! 😀
