Being honest with myself

I had weigh in today and I stayed the same. 

I was devastated and sad and upset and crabby. 

Then I decided instead to look at what went wrong this week, acknowledge it and move on. It took me 4.5 hours and a meeting with my support group to get to that point. But, I am there. 

As I look over my week I know I ate a lot more crap than I had previously. Instead of one indulgent meal over the weekend I had three. I borrowed from exercise points more than just on Saturday which has been my rule previously. I bought those damn Cadbury mini eggs. I got home from my meeting and took out my evening treat of those eggs and then threw the rest away. Deep down in the garbage so I can’t take them out. 

Our group leader and gym owner ran the meeting tonight and both have similar eating issues to me. They said get the crap out of the house. So, that’s what I did. 

I am not beating myself up about this and I am not carrying it with me any longer. I am just moving on.  

I am about to grade some math tests. Please pray that it’s not depressing. I always tell the kids to pardon the tear stains on their tests. πŸ˜‚ And that if they studied more I wouldn’t have to cry when I graded them. 

I hope you had a good Monday! Thank you to those of you who continue to read. It means a lot to have your support.

    I read your posts and they really motivate me – one bad weigh in is just a reminder to correct your course. It is like a reminder from your GPS that you are heading the wrong way. You know the wrong way now and will avoid that route in the future…😊. The spectacular thing is that you have so much support from Craig, your parents and your support group!

      Cortney- I love that you used the GPS analysis. I just showed a video in class today where the guy compares our conscience to a GPS.

      Thank you for your support! Xoxoxo
