Bleh / Uggh!

I'd like to say that my momma told me there'd be days like this but the fact is my momma didn't tell me much of anything. Yesterday it was about 4pm before I even realized what I was doing. I had been eating ALL DAY. It was like I was an out of control freak. Then I realized why: My oldest daughter started Kindergarten yesterday and I was stress eating. So I had a salad wrap for dinner and some steamed vegetables and called it a night, eating-wise.

Seriously, though...I'm not rationalizing a damn thing here, but at least I RECOGNIZED and STOPPED it. Today I'm back on track. I'm not going to let one day derail me! One thing I know I didn't do yesterday was journal my food intake. I'm back to that today.

Thanks to all of you for the help and support. And here's my little sweety all ready for her first day!


  1. She looks adorable. I hope she had a great first day...And, I hope you had a good day too. Congrats on recognizing AND stopping...

  2. How cute! Good job with dinner. After eating all day, I often decide to continue the pattern and continue eating the rest of the day (start anew the next day). Which just adds even more calories I don't need and why I reached a high of 391 lbs. To be able to stop and eat sensibly the rest of the day is a behavior I would like to learn as soon as possible. Again, great job.
