Stop This Train

I gave myself a day. I ate ice cream and oreos for breakfast. I had healthy snacks during the day. I ate a healthy lunch. BUT for dinner I finished off the oreos, I had more ice cream, AND I ate salt and pepper potato chips. All while watching The Bucket List. WTF? Seriously. I know all the stuff I was shoving into my mouth yesterday afternoon was not good for me, yet I could.not.stop. Oh and to top if off, I didn't go to the gym this morning. But, I will be going tonight. So you can take a wild guess that I didn't weigh myself this morning either.

I have said this before and I will whine about it again: I just wish it were all so much easier. I wish I could eat whatever I wanted.

So remember that bridesmaid dress I have to wear on August 16? I got it on Saturday. And it *barely* fits. And by barely, I mean I was able to zip it up, but if I were to gain any weight at all, I don't think it would zip up. So what do I go and do? I eat ice cream and cookies. Lots of ice cream and cookies.

Damn. I watched the same movie you did too - - I didn't get anything out of it but I stuffed my face with guac and chips.

The good news is, you have time to deflate before Aug. 16.

You can do it - - you have it in you!

Sarah- I swear in some ways you are a mini me. i know exactly how you are feeling about this. It is totally unfair/sucks that it isn't easy- that "bad" food tastes/feels so good but i think once you've had the issues, they never really go away. You just have to take it day by day and forgive yourself if you have a non-perfect day and move on.

I get how you're feeling about the dress. And you can't do anything about the ice crean & cookies today. Try to not have them in the house if they're a big temptation. You have over a month, you can lose a bit if you have to. Don't be too hard on yourself; we've all been there. One bridesmaid dress I bought when I was two sizes smaller than when I actually had to wear it! I nearly freaked when I finally put it on. It was a two-piece, with a top that buttoned up the back, and I had to literally be pinned into it to keep the buttons closed. Not fun!

Doritos are my favourite bad breakfast food so I can relate. It was only 1 day - there are plenty more days before August 16th. On the bright side, at least you don't need to lose weight, all you need to do is stay the same.

We're totally on your side. August 16th is a world away and it sounds like even just 1-2 pounds would give you the wiggle room to feel more comfy.

Awesome, you.
