Whelp, I am putting on my big girl panties and picking myself up out of this funk. It's just dumb to sit here eating yogurt with berries and seeds for breakfast, diet Coke and a Hot Pocket lunch, and a bowl of reduced fat chips and sour cream for dinner. Lame-O. I have to knock it off and quit being a baby about this. Time to step up and be mature.
I do tend to get in a mopey pity party mode if I eat a meal off plan. It always feels like some big disaster when really, it's just a meal off plan. Not that I want to have those, but that it makes no sense to let it drag on for days until I feel so physically miserable that I come to my senses. Like now. The joint pain, headaches, and stomach distress is enough, already. I am sick of sitting around watching videos instead of being outside.
It is always hard for me, though, to 'get clean' from sugar and white flour again once I indulge. I have physical symptoms for a couple of days but then I feel great again. I know I have to deal with that again over the next few days. Penance, I guess. I've been looking at my old progress pics as well, which has inspired me to keep working at this and NOT give up.
No more moping. I have things to do.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
