Not derailed

Yesterday did not go so well on the eating front. I ate too much and I ate too many things I probably shouldn’t have.  Don’t get me wrong. I’m a firm believer in the power of “everything in moderation.”  I know that when I eliminate something completely from my diet or put something completely off-limits, it only makes me want it more and that is a recipe for disaster.  But the word moderation is the key, and the word moderation was nowhere in my vocabulary yesterday.

But I did something different this time around. I actually tracked my insanity. I used a lot of my weekly flex points, but I’m still within them. I’ve also been tracking today.

I’m a little disappointed with myself, but I’m not going to let it tear me down.

I skidded on the tracks a bit yesterday, but unlike before, I haven’t given up.  This time, I didn’t let it completely derail me.

Thanks to the tea..it made me felt better..

  4. Dear Pamela,
    I hope you are feeling better! I thought of you while watching “Lbs.”, which I enjoyed very much for so many reasons. Yes, “Lbs.” finally became available on Netflix Instant! YAY! Tiny spoiler alert–>The story is told beautifully, from one man’s unique yet empathetic perspective, and the ending scenes are quite moving–especially the one in the restaurant and afterwards–with great ambiguity as to eventual outcome and conclusions. I like the way it leaves the viewer to arrive at her own ideas about weight and eating, to decide for herself if eating becomes a compulsion–for some people–related to psychological pressures and/or if profoundly complex physiological forces have more impact than we can see from our culture’s superficial view. Thanks for reviewing the movie so long ago, and for recommending it here on your blog. I probably would have overlooked it completely otherwise. Again, I hope you are doing well, overall, and please know that your blog inspired me–way back when–to take a much deeper look at my own struggles with weight and self-esteem, and helped to encourage my own continued efforts to sort out my place in this crazy universe. HUGS!–Rebecca
