Monday, Monday...

This has been a rough weekend. Food addiction took over my life yesterday and the day before. Whew, I'm glad I'm back in control today. I wasn't perfect today but a whole lot better. I sure do know now what an alcoholic feels like. Yesterday by 3:00 in the afternoon I had already had breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was wondering what I would do the rest of the day and contemplated just going to bed and staying there but I wasn't sleepy. So I just had another breakfast, lunch and dinner after that. The worst part about it was that I wasn't hungry just craving so badly that I couldn't resist eating. I never did find anything that would satisfy my cravings and that's probably why I continued to eat all day and evening. I'm ready to take back control completely tomorrow.

That reminds me of a TV doctor I listened to a couple of Sundays ago. He said that Monday is the time to start eating healthy. He said to just make it through Monday. Then think about Tuesday when it comes and continue what you did on Monday. He said to keep that up every day and if you falter one day try the next and if that doesn't work there will be another Monday at the beginning of next week to start all over again. He stressed that even if you can't keep it up all week that the days you did succeed will help greatly in increasing your health.

Hope your week was better than mine :o)

I was pretty good this weekend until last night after work. I was just craving wheat thins with shredded cheese and ranch dressing. The biggest problem is that I eat way too much of it.
I totally understand your frustrated, I feel the same.
Like the doc says take one day at a time.
Thanks for sharing

I wonder if your craving hit because it was a weekend. I was thinking about this for my own journey today, and the weekends the routine is off. Everything is different. I think it's harder on weekends.

Hope you have a good Monday, and Tuesday, etc. =)

Have a good Monday, Monday.

I am so trying to take it one day at a time. Just make it through today and think about tomorrow tomorrow.

There is definately psychology to 'screwing up'. For me it is "Oh well, today is screwed, what the heck! " And I keep going. I am going to try to fight that attitude. At least you are aware of things. That is half the battle.

They say realizing the problem is half the battle. So it would stand to reason that you're half way to solving your problem. That's what I tell myself, anyway. Some days it helps, some not so much. We just have to try to regain focus and keep at it. We can only do what we can do. Geez, perhaps I should have majored in Philosophy!

Sorry to hear about the rough weekend you had with your eating. Remember how it made you feel to be out of control and focus on the opposite, the pride and confidence you have when you are making healthy choices!!! You can do it!

I just found your blog and I can so relate to what you've written. We ARE addicts - I don't know if it's the food or the act of eating but I know that a lot of us battle the same thing. Please know that you are not alone and that many of us pray for all of us who have this addiction.

Hugs,
Mary

We try to fight the cravings and instead of eating what we really want, we end up eating all kinds of other crap. Or at least I do. Sometimes I wonder if I should just give in to the craving and get it over with! Of course, there are times when a craving is just a passing thought, so that wouldn't work. Some days just suck. Sorry you had a bad one, but hey - it's Monday!

I've had a rough couple of weeks. I bought a big box of donuts, including cruellers and sorry to say I ate a lot of them. I threw the rest away and actually took the trash out to the curb so that I couldn't change my mind. Right now I'm craving a big piece of butter cake.

Today's Monday. A new start for me. I blogged about it already. Vee - www.veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com

MERG! I hate those food cravings!! They get the best of me too.

I like what this TV DOC says. Take each day for what it is. And judging by how much progress you have made in the past year, you are AMAZING!

For example... just one year ago, you didn't have a blog because you didn't think you had much to say.

Now look! You're a great blogger with 49 followers, TONS OF COMMENTS and look at all the weight you've lost.

So what if you had a bad weekend... You're still a dieting ROCKSTAR, and most importantly.... my hero. =) Love you!

Sorry you had such a tough weekend! When I struggle like that, I wonder if it's about the food or something else. Then I fret over the something else it might be. :)

Hang in there! Les Brown, the motivational speaker, said once, "When life knocks you down--and it will--try to land on your back. If you can look up, you can get up!" So get up, already. :)
