Day Sixteen – A Slight Detour To Get Back On The Straight Scenic Route…

Day fifteen was a mediocre diet day. I had pastry & cake with cream ‘Gasps!’…I still ate less, but I was more lax…but…one mediocre day does not have to turn into a disastrous week. So today is a strict day. A make up for the lax day. A eat salad & fish day…NO! CAKE!

Knowing my body I probably regained all the weight loss…Ummmm! lol…but…I don’t care. I am not going to beat myself up emotionally & start giving into the feelings that I ‘FAILED!’…Because I have not failed. Its one day ‘Get over it’ Don’t full apart ‘Move on!’…

I am just listening to self hypnosis as I blog. I find the suggestions which are going into my mind are quite helpful. Apparently I am going to feel good & confident…just listen to his voice & allow myself to relax…

Disaster happened when I decided to have salmon in pastry, instead of salmon cooked with herb’s & spices. Ohh! I also gave in to drinking a HIGH! sugar ginger beer. I thought I would really enjoy it. Nope! it tasted ‘Mediocre!’…That is my word for today…

It is the diet mentality…’Good!’ & ‘Bad!’…So I am trying to change the way I think & feel about eating, because this weight loss journey is going to succeed & I am going to maintain my weight loss. There is no lose weight – gain weight + some…

It does niggle at my mind, like a aggravating gnat flying around me…’Grrrr!’ Darn gnat bites, they do seem to find my AB- blood, tasty…I still fasted from 23pm, I will be eating again at 13pm. Lunch is going to be extra healthy, so is dinner & no sugar…

I am going to go for a longer walk today. I am going to borrow my little grand daughter & take her for a walk in her push chair. She is one of the reasons I am improving myself. As in my health. I am going to be a active part of her life…

Hmmm! That diet mentality! I am tempted to start counting calories, or carb’s, or fat, but…If I eat calories, fair enough, I would count 2000-calories, I know eating less calories would be effecting my leptin levels & in the long term my fat burning efficiency…

If I count carbs. I would lose lots of weight ‘Water’…but regain said water more or less straight away…Low carb is great for dieting, because no hunger pangs, no food cravings, I forget to eat & have to think about eating. It does make me feel better. My eye sight improves, my skin improves, my hair improves, my nails improve…

If I count fat. I have to go quite low to make a difference. Fat free foods, quorn, etc, is not good for you. Modified soy products, fat free dairy & margarine are in the ‘Foods to avoid, if you want to lose weight’ list…Low fat is great for dropping inches…

Maybe I should go back to following the slimming world ‘extra easy’ plan…I should buy the magazine & read it cover to cover, read the success stories, watch the slimming world video’s on you tube. Motivate myself. Inspire myself. Focus on my goals. I am determined to lose all my excess fat & become slim, healthy me…

Today is a fresh day. It is not a roll on from the mediocre ‘Leptin boosting’ ‘metabolism boosting’ ‘cheat day’…or whatever us dieters like to call it…Ummm! lol…I was not dropping my calories, fat or carbs to a semi starvation state, so no need for the boost in anything…

What have I learned…

  1. One bad day, does not have to make a bad week…
  2. Ginger beer is not as scrummy as I used to think it was, now I am eating a lot less sugar…
  3. I don’t need to keep starting over, I just took a detour on my weight loss journey…
  4. Today is a fresh new day…
  5. There is no ‘Bad!’ day. No ‘failure’. No I am useless. No I knew I would fail. No self loathing. It is a minor, minute, tinsy detour, nothing to get all dramatic about, get over it, move on, learn from the one minor slip, where I ate ‘Gasp!’ pastry & ‘OMFG!’ CAKE!…Don’t blow it all out of proportion. Carry on healthy eating & learning how to maintain my inevitable weight loss for life…
  6. On my life style ‘Eating for life’…I will eat the occasional cake & have pie for dinner. Jeeze! Woman! its not that bad…Drama queen! Diet diva!

I feel better now…

Nuff said for now…
