Ok ok I know I am late with this one and I know that I have just posted Week 5: I’m doing ok but this is not the normal weekly post admitting this is means setting aside my pride and I needed a week to pluck up the courage. So I had a terrible pretty much disastrous week 4. I mean I ate ok maybe 3 days out of the 7 and I just couldn’t face the guilt. I know that these dailies were supposed to be for me and I wanted to keep myself honest which in the end is why I decided to post a confession.
Basically, I ate my feelings. I know a lot of us are guilty of this and we just sometimes find ourselves have way through a sharing bag of crisps or a cookie the size of our face. Well that was me in week 4. I had a lapse in judgement and wanted to take back some control. Some things weren’t going quite the way I have imagined and I had my most stressful week at work to date. Old habits kicked in and I decided to binge.
I have to admit it internet, it was not worth it, lets be honest it never is. I felt sick and I felt like what I had worked for the past 4 weeks amounted to nothing. Then I reminded myself that it was only 2 days. I had crisps, chocolate and biscuits, it’s ok. I confessed to my secret eating to my other half and accountability partner and we talked through a few things that could get me back on track. Suddenly the shame was gone and it was replaced with motivation. I was going to weigh myself in week 5, I need to do some damage control.
On the Sunday I set myself some new goals and I ploughed on, if you have read my week 5 you will see that I got myself back on track and I have ended up losing 7lbs this week (I worked my backside off for it). I am proud of how far I have come and it is ok to admit that I made a mistake. I just don’t want it to happen again. To see how I am combating this check out February Weight Loss Goals and my 1 month in. posts. They give a better insight as to how I got over those days.
I hope that if you are in a rut with your weight loss and identify with a few things I have mentioned here please leave a comment and we can get through it together.
Until next time.
