Down 1.2 lbs 48.4 lbs total
It's funny how I'm very content with a just over one pound weight loss this week when I was almost suicidal with a three pound loss a couple of weeks ago.
With my huge loss last week, I didn't expect another big number. I'm fine with it. The weight will come off.
For no obvious reason, today was very emotional. All I wanted to do was eat. I wish I could say that I stayed 100%. It wasn't a full blown binge, but I was out of control to a degree.
I need to figure this out.
The emotions: boredom, stress, failure, apprehension.
boredom - there was no plan for this afternoon. I got home from church (I work at our church) and did nothing (or not much).
stress - I have a lot to do at church tomorrow, and we are going out of town tomorrow night.
failure - I didn't get a couple of things done today at church that I should've gotten to. I forgot. I hate forgetting. I hate letting people down.
apprehension - Going out of town introduces a lot of unknowns, especially when you're doing something like Medifast. Where we live is not too crowded, it's beautiful and life seems to move a little slower. Surferman jokes about living in a bubble. It's always hard to leave the bubble.
As I write it all down, it becomes clear... NO PLAN = NO SUCCESS!
I need to keep my to do lists and my calendars near. I need to work my to do lists. I'm too busy to be bored. I need to use my lists to plan for our time out of town... if it's written down, I can't forget something. I will be prepared.
Tomorrow will be a different day. There will be a plan.
