Now it's back to eating clean for another couple of weeks.
If you are going to indulge in an "off diet" meal it might as well be a great meal. Well planned and well deserved.

The first week is always the easiest - the resolve is still strong. We'll see how the next 3 weeks go. I have found that I am much more successful when I set short term, but intense goals. Setting a general goal like "I want to be 125# by July" doesn't really work for me, I'll just put off the hard work until tomorrow. Setting the goal of taking the month of March to temporarily clamp down on the diet, sacrifice a few of my favorite foods, and maintain discipline works for me. Mostly because my eating habits are pretty good to begin with (thanks to several years of train via FitDay and all my cyber-buddies)

I was just putting in the data for yesterday - ALL of it. I let myself get too hungry, and then ate too much. I'm not recording what the scale said this morning, but am still hoping to be under 140# by Wednesday. I tell myself that it's good to go over calories some days to "keep the body guessing". I know in the past I've starved myself to lose weight, and it does not work. Slow and steady, right?
Yeah, that getting too hungry is real trouble maker. I really struggle trying to balance a little hungry and a small snack will do, against too hungry I want to empty the pantry into my mouth. Keep your eyes on the prize! 140#

But, as as a wise woman stated “today is a shiny new week” . Canary – you and I must be on the same wavelength for this!

I had an amazing run yesterday, but I must get a watch – I had limited time, and thought I had used it up, turned out I could easily have gone 10 minutes longer, and I did have the energy for it.
Kim, celebrating with friends for a long time is why I’m doing this, and I don’t intend to give it up, just to be healthy enough that I can enjoy it!

Nottango – slow and steady is the only way we’re going to make it!

Today will be good behavior all day!
I saw your run on the exercise thread - very nice. Ummm, how do you function without a watch? I have often wondered how that works???

I haven't heard or seen the "sheep as a lamb" quote in a longtime - how appropriate. Once I start with a bad decision, I just kind of give up trying to maintain my resolve.
