December 7, 2015
The good news is that I didn't eat as much as expected yesterday. I was half expecting myself to eat the whole meal at the restaurant, so I wanted to make sure I didn't eat too much before.
At the restaurant, the menu was not exactly the same as what I had looked up online. The dish I was hoping to have wasn't there, so I didn't know what to have. I ended up having one of their specials. It might not have been the healthiest on the menu, but I debated with myself about how I only eat out a handful of times a year and that this one dish was not going to derail me. I ate the side veggies, the little pieces of toasted bread that came with it, and I managed to eat a little under half of the main part.
I had leftovers!
It also helped me mentally to see Tracy and a few others had only eaten half of their meals and were also asking for containers for the rest.
Today I weighed myself. I lost 0.2 pounds since last Monday (I forget what the scale was at the doctor's). That's a total of about 4 pounds in 4 weeks, but with the rate I'm losing, I'm going to be the same next week. I don't want that. I need to get off my butt and do something.
Some inspiration for me...
Slow progress is still progress.
I just saw a quote that pretty much sums up what a few people have been saying to me.
"You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be." ~Marianne Williamson
I am learning that each day is a battle of wits between old habits and new goals, between old fears and today's courage, and that I might have to be mentally stubborn to reach my goals.
