Down 1.5. That means I have 3 left to go from the 7 I gained.
Never ceases to amaze me how you can put the weight on virtually over night but the coming off part...
No matter, I'm finding my way back piece by piece.
That being said, I had to make a difficult decision tonight. A bunch of the girls were meeting at the local pizza place to hang out and watch the Bruins game. I was excited to go but when I really sat down and thought about it, I thought it would be best to sit this one out.
Seeing as I can't drink (I'm allergic to alcohol -or to something in my diet and alcohol makes it worse) and I really can't afford the calories of pizza and bar food, I thought it best to stay home. I'm finally feeling like I am getting back into some sort of a groove. Pizza is one food I have a really, really hard time saying "no" to. It's just best to pass it up for right now.
It's OK. It's not always like this. When I have a few weeks of steady weight loss and am feeling strong and confident, I know I will be able to handle nights like tonight. I don't believe this journey is about secluding myself from social situations. I don't believe this journey is about deprivation. I just have to recognize when I know I will go overboard and when I can just have a taste and be OK. Tonight, unfortunately, isn't one of those nights. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.
