It’s time for a Weightloss Wednesday! As of yesterday afternoon, I am 204.4 lbs. A little higher than where I want to be but I’m not too concerned about it.
Tonight at work, something weird happened. Something that hasn’t happened in years. I have talked many times about what is my real Achilles heel when it comes to the low carb life, chips and salsa. If I go to a Mexican restaurant and they put chips on the table, I cannot stop myself from eating them. And not just a few either, as many as I can shove in my piehole. Well, I have another weakness also but I never talk about it because it never comes up, until tonight.
I love frozen bon-bons. Now it’s been years since I’ve had them but something about the little frozen creme centers absolutely does it for me and tonight, there was a box available at work. And I had one. And then another. And then another. And then another. It was an odd experience because I knew I needed to stop and they weren’t doing me any favors but I just couldn’t tear myself away from them. It was almost surreal how much my will power absolutely deserted me in my time of need.
I haven’t weighed myself since it happened but I am terrified I’m going to have gained 10 pounds. I know that’s ridiculous but still, it totally got in my head. As I thought through what happened, I realized that I have been a little lax since I met my big goal. Nothing major but a little more Coke Zero than the none I was drinking previously, or maybe a spoonful of peanut butter every once in a while. Like I said, nothing major but enough to make me realize that I was getting too comfortable with compromising.
So I decided on a solution. Starting today, I’m going to use my Instagram account as a way to make myself accountable. Everything I put in my mouth, I’m going to snap a pic and put it on IG. I know, that makes for a terrible IG feed but I need to get back to basics. If you would like to follow on, just click here.
