Yes, I was AWOL last week.
When I got on the scale the number was so bad I just didn’t want to deal with it. I did NOT cross the 200 threshold but I came within sniffing distance of it.
I just couldn’t face it. In fact, I spent most of the week in a funk. At the same time I got my eating back under some kind of control and hit the gym a little more often. I just felt unhappy.
And a little bit of good came from that. Net change over two weeks is only a single pound. I hit the gym this morning. We begin again.
I still struggle when I’m in a restaurant. I’m fine at home but somehow the control part of my brain shuts off in a restaurant. There are times when you can let go and have some fun. But that’s in the “special treat” category. I refuse to simply give up eating out. I’ve said it before, if the only way I can lose weight is by eating crap food and not enjoying what I eat then I’ll be overweight.
But I’ve proven it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve been “The Guy”.
My resolution remains :
want to am going to be The Guy again.
The next milestone is getting back below 190. I will get there and go on.
