Steering the boat

Just a quick note for today. I'm still hanging in there and going through ups and downs with this "bump." Bumps make life hard to manage. Sometimes I think I can do it, sometimes I can't. And sometimes I'm just holding on.

After my stellar loss on Saturday, I had less than a stellar weekend eating wise. I gave in to some emotional eating a number of times because of having to write my victim impact statement. I just wanted to cocoon or eat. Since I couldn't cocoon because of prior commitments, I wound up making a lot of poor food choices instead.

But I'm allowed and it's okay. Of all times, this is not the time to be hard on myself. I just need to get through this month, one day at a time. So last night I wrote down everything that I did right health-wise over the weekend and found I still made good choices when I was able to. It's never too late to steer the boat back on course or, at the very least, somewhat in the general direction.

As always, thanks everyone for your support during my highs and lows. I'll catch up with y'all soon, I promise.

You can go ahead and have a little crap. When going through a journey like this, it's hard to be 'good' when dealing with things from the past (or present) and you can't let yourself get bogged down.

You're still me hero :o)

Take care of yourself!
Hang in there and don't worry about anything it will get back to normal after your "bump"

Well, I don't know exactly what you were a victim of (that must have been a post I missed), but I understand how certain situations can cause us to eat poorly. Allow yourself some wiggle room. Things will get back on track.
