Weight Loss Blog: 29/8

Today’s diary.

I know I am only half way through the day, but I thought that I might as well post my blog and let you know how I’m doing with everything. Last night, I completely lost it, and just snacked the night away. I can’t even believe how much I ate. It started with dinner, when I was making perfectly healthy pasta with tomato sauce. I had planned that for a meal, and had built the rest of my calories for the day around the assumption that the meal would come to around 500 calories. However, I was not actually cooking the meal, and when it was ready I found that there had been all manner of things mixed in with it such as chopped meat, more vegetables, a lot of cheese, salt, and sauce. It was very nice, but must have added at least 200 cals, if not more, to the amount that I had been hoping to eat.

When that happens to me, I don’t just let it go and carry on with the day. It actually upsets me to the extent that I end up snacking more. I am aware that it makes absolutely no sense to do that at all, but there is no reasoning with me when I am in that mood. So, that evening, above my calories for the day, I also ate 4 chocolate digestives (80 cals each), 3 Thornton melts (50 cals each) and two Thornton’s heart chocolates and I’m not sure how many calories were in those. I also had a cup of tea with milk, which added even more.

I don’t know why I do it to myself. I could have finishe the day just 200 cals over what I’d planned, which wouldn’t have been all that bad, but instead I had to eat another 500 calories in junk just because I was upset about what had happened. And, of course, I was even more upset when I stepped on the scales this morning because it showed up that I had gained a couple of ounces. Of course I had, the amount I ate. Why wouldn’t I! 

I am not going through all of this to see the number on the scale rise. That’s not what I’m aiming for. I want the numbers to go down, and I want to reach my goal weight. I think that one of the tricks that I need to keep in mind is that I have to keep busy. This is going to sound ridiculous, but when I feel as though I’m going to snack, I put on my Waterloo Road box set to keep my mind busy, and a colouring book and some coloured pencils to keep my hands busy. I think it really does help, because often the only reason that I find myself snacking in an evening is because I don’t have anything better to do so I do it to relieve my own boredom. I have to snap out of that habit, because it’s going to be the difference between me getting to my goal weight and me getting slowly back to the weight I was right at the beginning. That is something that I just cannot allow to happen, and I’m not going to let food run my life again.
