Wow, That Was One Bad Night

So after yesterday's post about control, I went into mega snack mode last night! I was starving all day and it finally caught up to me. I was great until 8:30 or 9, was on a 900 calorie deficit for the day. Pretty sure I wound up with maybe 100 calorie deficit, but may have even wound up with a zero calorie deficit for yesterday. Not that I am hacked at myself, but sure would have rather had that happen on a day other than one that was 30 hours from a huge weigh in. But I had been hungry all day yesterday. I think I have been pushing a little hard on my workouts this week just to be sure on the weigh in, and I seriously spent yesterday hungry all day. Supper filled me up though, so in reality, my snack binge makes no sense. Now it wasn't all bad stuff. I had a couple of bananas, an ounce of lunch meat, a cheese stick. But I think where I lost control was 3 bowls of cereal with milk. Had I stopped at one, probably fine, but three? wow. So that happened. today is the day to get dust myself off, climb back on the wagon and do some introspection as to why I did that so I can not do that in the future. Not got a clue yet. May have been cause Kathy wasn't feeling well and was asleep all night and I got lonely. I have also been working really hard at work and school and on the Quorum Court stuff and that may have been some serious stress eating. I also think I have piled some stress on myself about this coming up weigh in. I have a feeling if the results are good, that will give me a high to ride for quite some time! I am betting last night will have been a minor speed bump on a great path to success in the grand scheme of things!

  1. Interesting, Shane! I would think cereal or at least that brand might be a red light food for you. I am the same way with crunchy peanut butter and ice cream so I just don't keep them in the house or even taste them. Fortunately, most foods don't trigger binge behavior for me- even candy, nuts,cookies or my favorite kettle chips. I bet you are thrilled with your weigh-in this week.

  2. I think very close to goal weight quite a few people find some kind of speed bump. Just have to re-focus and do all the things you know you can do and turn it around before anything worse happens
    Good Luck

  3. I can't tell you how many times I have thought I have this thing licked and I have a cereal night. Your "binge"choices would be similar to mine. Move on, learn from it and try to avoid it again.

  4. It's interesting that I wrote about the same thing yesterday. I've received several responses from people going through the same "hunger pains" this week. It must be in the air.

    Either way, today is a new opportunity. And hey..when I had lost 98.6 pounds I was sure I'd hit 100 the following week, but it didn't happen until the week after. I stressed myself about it and now wonder why..lol

    You're going to rock this..I have no doubt..

  5. Several bowls of cereal are now behind you. I am sure you will get back on and as I write this I am sure you have already! We all fall of the wagon now and then. We are humans after all and not perfect. I am betting that you will have a GREAT weigh in! YOU do rock, Shane! Michele
