This blog entry is being done on Monday because yesterday I was just plain sick. Feverish, congested, and nauseous. Pretty, huh?
Good weight loss week-2 pounds! I was so excited when I weighed-then I realized I had counted wrong and it was 18 pounds total, not 20 like I thought. Still, a very big yay for me! I was able to stick with it through a sister party and a Sunday of not feeling well.
Friday was a day off and a day with lots of open time. I had a hard time eating hunger that day-mostly I had a hard time reaching hunger. On my way to club, I stopped to pick up a CFDC for Cathi and saw something irresistible-Lay's Balsamic Vinegar and Sweet Onion potato chips! Oh my gosh, they were so good. I didn't even really try to be strong even though I wasn't hungry. Not proud of that, but I am proud that I just moved on after the package was gone. That night, I wasn't hungry yet, but my sister had fixed a spaghetti dinner for us, so I joined. At least I was able to only eat one portion.
I finished Shrink Yourself and am now reading Geneen Roth's Breaking Free from Emotional Eating. I like it a lot, but kind of miss the more concrete 'how to's' from Shrink.
