Miraculum's Journal, 05 January 2019

Yesterday was a tough day, resistance-wise. I could hear myself begin to rationalize "just one!" But "just one" candy bar becomes five, and then I'm off and running. It turns into a "lost day": "Oh, I blew it. I might as well eat the cookies and ice cream, too." Right around the corner of every cheat is a full-on, no-holds-barred, binge. once a day is "lost."

I had to pick up medication at the supermarket pharmacy, and going into the store and passing up on all the temptations would be too much for me. "Hey! Wait a minute! I can go to the drive-through pharmacy window!" Whew, that was a close one!

Nice job finding a way to deal with it. Sometimes we need strategies. Ordering groceries may be one way to do it for some.

@Miraculum, you were doing GREAT on your food choices until that pharmacy debacle! Good for you in realizing that you can go to the drive-thru next time! You also did great on recording your exercise and activity. Since December 18th, you’ve lost 9.5 pounds! That’s over the HOLIDAYS! You’re doing great! Don’t let a slip-up discourage you. But, learn to think of them just a little differently. I used to think as you do: if I blew it, I might as well eat everything in sight for the rest of the day (sometimes, even for the rest of the WEEK!) Instead of looking at a candy bar as a failure for the DAY, try to think of it as a mistake for the HOUR (or, even for the MINUTE) – then get right back to doing the right things! Also, RECORD your mistakes. Log all those candy bars in your Food Diary, instead of just clicking “This is SOME of what I ate.” Seeing just exactly how many calories and carbs you consumed is a great deterrent to doing it again. You’ve got this! Just do the next right thing – one step at a time.

Debbie, I gave you the wrong impression: The *store* was too much to resist, so I avoided it altogether. I was on my way to the pharmacy and realized that I could go through the drive-through *this* time! Oh, yes, adefwebserver, we are all more alike than we could have ever imagined!
