Approaching the wagon
Saturday, May 16, 2009
Not quite back on it, but I will be tomorrow. I fell back into emotional eating on Friday, and ate so much I lost track of everything. Today I stayed in my calorie range, but basically only ate 1.5 meals, and didn't make healthy choices. Tomorrow I know that I have healthy foods in the house, and they sound really good, so I'm encouraged by that.
I have a weight-related goal now, and I'm a bit nervous about it. We are going to Six Flags Saint Louis in the middle of July. Right now I think I'm too fat to ride the rides, but if I lose two pounds a week, that means I would lose twenty pounds! It will mean being a lot more disciplined about food choices, and sticking to my exercise plan, but I can do it for two months. And after that, I think I will have instilled some healthy habits, and can keep losing. This is just the kick in the pants I needed to start really caring about eating better.
