Fell off the wagon and still thinking positive

Monday, February 15, 2010

After a good run of portion control I fell off the wagon. My challenge is figuring out how to handle fun events like baking cookies without going crazy. I went to my friend's house to have some gf time and we were making cookies. Now I did plan good and we had a good filling lunch BEFORE we started baking the cookies.

The next thing I know we had downed a pan of chocolate chip cookies between us. It was totally mindless. We were talking and laughing and having fun and eating cookies. It just goes to show how old habits are really ingrained.

i'm not upset or feeling guilty. I do want to figure out how to have a cookie baking event or something without over indulging. this is a challenge not a setback. Looking for your thoughts!

    I think you already hit the nail on the head ... you were eating mindlessly. Maybe with every batch you cook split a cookie next time. That way you are eating it with purpose and not just gobbling them up. This will work unless you are making tons of batches. I will do this with the kids when we make them. I split a cookie between the 3 of is and we usually make 3 pans full. So when I am done I have had a cookie.

    Don't bake cookies. I have a friend that I love to cook with. We make foods that are on our plan. We still get to hang out and have fun, but there is no guilt with the foods we make.

    Good attitude, no sense beating yourself up over it, I would log the cookies so you can see actually how many calories it was & next time you might decide 1 or 2 would be enough. When I get off track & log the food, it helps me to make a better choice next time. When I used to follow WW, I wouldn't write it down if I got off track, but I make myself be accountable for it now w/ Spark. best of luck in your journey of health & happiness!
