Sloppy Eating Slip Ups =/ -Brutal Honesty and Reality Checks

Hey all,

This weekend was pretty much one of my first major slip ups in quite awhile. Now I’m one of those people who do incorporate my favorite foods into my diet so I don’t get cravings much. With the exception of the very occasional craving for super horrible food from restaurants. Darn you B dubs with your delicious food! haha. But I know for me, my choice to eliminate fast food and restaurant food all together, as much as possible anyway, is the best choice for me. I don’t know about anyone else, but the less junk I have, the less I seem to crave it.

But back to this weekend. I just lost control starting saturday night. It started slow, a few chips and dip at a friends while watching TV. Despite knowing it would push me over my calorie goal without working out at all that day. * Insert facepalm here* Sunday evening being frustrated with my family and eating dinner with them despite knowing I shouldn’t have eaten much more that day, but I didn’t want to fight them anymore. A hot meal is always tempting. They eat so freaking late at night! I just can’t seem to wait. Then my sister bringing me my absolute favorite peanut butter and banana Coldstone ice cream. She was trying to being nice because she knew I was stressed about my neurobiology test today. In addition to having a freaky allergic reaction that day, I found myself binge eating while studying early into the morning.

And boy am I paying for it. I gained a grand total of 3lbs this weekend in the course of 2 really 1 1/2 days. I was 1lb away from the 180s. God I hate my metabolism sometimes. Because, when looking back, I didn’t portion control much, but I didn’t eat too horrible either. I’m just a little frustrated with myself for letting it happen. As well as knowing that normal people, could probably have eaten what I did, and maintained. =( I know my body isn’t theirs, and I need to accept it for what it is. But sometimes I just wish I could have a maintaining weight potential. I’m always loosing or gaining. Unlike my mother and sister who gorge themselves silly and still are so pretty and thin.

Reality Check Time:

Never, give up. This is a journey. Not a one time shot. There are downs to your ups, and this is mine. So even though I lost control this weekend, its no excuse to continue a downward spiral today. If anything its reason to hit the gym harder. To eat cleaner. So enough of this pity party and lets get back to it.

How I'm feeling right now...

Its not perfection, but persistence and consistency that is the key.

Much love to you all. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

  1. Dear B, I love how honest and real your post is! Keep strong! I heard from a friend once that if you have been eating well and binge briefly then return to eating well, that your body doesn’t retain it for long and doesn’t even keep the calories you intake past what its used to. Not sure if its true, but thought it might help to know our bodies can be forgiving.

    Sending you positive vibes!

    • Thank you! I try to be up front. Not only is it therapeutic for me, but I think if anyone reads this, they can learn that major weight loss happens with blips. Not 100% perfection.

      That’d be nice if it works out that way. I’d love to drop the lbs quick. If not, thats okay too. My goal is to survive the Thanksgiving break/ Holiday and loose 1-3lbs instead of gaining.

      Thank you for the positive vibes/comments. They are more appreciated than you know. =] It’s really encouraging.

  2. It actually might’ve done you some good. If you diet and take a good cheat every 7-10 days it restarts your metabolism so maybe look at it as a blessing? That weight should come off within a day or two! I know the scale can be discouraging but keep your chin up and keep moving forward! If you find yourself cheating, try and do a little extra cardio, taking off some of those calories is probably more beneficial to your mental health than physical haha

    • Maybe? I would love for that to be the case.

      I know lays chips in general are a blessing and a curse. haha

      Thank you for the kind words and motivation! It really is nice to hear.Hopefully it’ll help get me through the Holidays! =/ haha
