Tuesday May 18...

Its Tuesday morning...and I am realizing or rather, accepting, the fact that somehow over the past few days I have...one choice at a time...slipped off plan. I'm sure part of it has been emotional eating as I grapple with feelings and emotions brought about by the news of my brother's death. Part of it is that I keep finding myself in situations where I am not in control of the menu. But even as I type those words I'm aware that it's an excuse...it's CHOICES...and the choices are mine to make.

Yes, my brother's passing has brought up a myriad of emotions. But eating off plan has done nothing to make those emotions easier to deal with.

Yes, I have been at event after event this week where the menu choices are what they are. But, I can make the CHOICE to remain on plan even within those situations.

So, here I am this morning, resolving to pick myself up, dust myself off, count this week a lesson learned, and get back on plan. This WILL NOT become an excuse to go on a binge that lasts for days. I've had a rough few days....but it stops today.

sounds like you have the skills to recognize the emotional eating cycle so that is the 1st step. You can do it, you will get past this. smile.
