Sunday. A day spent with family and friends. 

Still, there is room to keep to the plan, right? No need to go meshugena  – we’ve talked about this, the social eating.

I watched my portion sizes. I didn’t order excessively, though I did have a few extra slices of toast at breakfast. I would happily say this was a good day, actually.

Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong. 

Tracking my meals with the app, my kilojoules were even MORE outrageous than yesterday. 

This is what I have learned:

  1. White bread REALLY is the devil.
  2. Milkshake as a treat? That’s a quarter of your daily kilojoules in one fell swoop.
  3. If I carry on like this, I will never get to enjoy dessert again, plus, I will balloon even more.
  4. I need to take this more seriously. 

The problem is, I’m lying here, typing out this blog, and I am RAVENOUS!

This is a disaster. I’m constantly hungry AND constantly uncomfortable from having eaten too much. 

It’s at a point like this, that giving up seems the logical thing to do. Except I won’t. Because I have learned so much and am so much more aware…at some point this is going to have a payoff, and work in my favour. 

It has to.

  1. Some scary thoughts that surfaced here. But hang in there. DON’T give up now. I’m actually really reading all of your daily logs and being inspired to do the same. I’m an emotional eater and every feeling you describe is exactly what goes through my head as well.

    1. Thanks David. It’s so disheartening to be aware of the changes I need to make, and to think that I am doing enough to bring those about – and then be confronted with these facts that actually nothing is really changing.
