Day 35 - planning and learning from the past
Saturday, January 26, 2019
This week brought a trip to Cuba, eating out every day, stress at work, A serious backlog on emails, and potluck today...and I was still able to stick to it out, losing about 3-4 pounds this week. Had a plan for the week and stuck to it, feeling really proud and feel like in a really good place.
Currently all my thoughts and believes are aligned - I know being morbidly (super) obese is bad - I know I have the knowledge, tools and ambition to lose weight!!! I know I can and WILL do this.
I am able to make decision with a clear mind, I am not slipping up and making excuses. I am on a roll and feel (almost) invincible.....we all know that’s not true, so I am trying to plan ahead and anticipate challenges. I am trying to reflect on what I may have done in the past, knowing I shouldn’t, or didn’t have to - reflecting on and learning from past mistakes. Next week we have the monthly office lunch, so I’ll make sure to brown bag and eat before everyone breaks for the buffet. Tomorrow is a day at home catching up at work, so should be good.
When traveling, although I make it clear that I’ll strick to protein only, I am being offered to have some bread, sides and share a dessert. Not having filled up on carbs earlier in the day, and/or in the meal, it’s quite easy (for now....) to pass on anything not in the program.
Today I started with 3 soft boiled eggs for breakfast and a cup of cottage cheese for lunch. Dinner was a potluck, so had to make sure I find some meat. Was lucky and got some pork curry and roasted duck. Backup plan was cooking once we got home, so wouldn’t have been an issue.
Day 35 - 30.4 lbs down - only 169.6lbs or 565 days to go to 225lbs
Taking my last few puffs on my vape, then will throw them out and quit smoking for good. I am committing to myself that I will NOT compensate by eating.
