The Constant Challenge

I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.

I can imagine! I have a small family, but Thanksgiving was more about the local friends than having family come to see us. Once every 7-10 years we would have family come though, so that's like never!

Very true. I just ate the rest of the gummies in my half awake/middle of the night stage. At least they're gone. And the cider isn't awful, so that's good. I just ate way too much, but if I take the evens out over the week approach, then I'm good :D I'll be good tomorrow since I'll be out of the flat most of the day. The weekend will be challenging, but I can worry about that on Saturday.

That's one way to view it, but I'm not sure I believe it.

I definitely overate today. It was all good until I made rice-less sushi. Somehow I always end up eating/using way too much humus when I make it (sub hummus for rice!). So I was satisfied with my late lunch/early dinner sushi. But then I had eggplant. Again, no big deal. Just baked eggplant "fries". But I really wanted something sweet, so I had a banana pancake. That made me stuffed, but the sweet tooth was still there. So I went out and bought gummies and cider. Now I feel sick. I should have fought the urge, but it's been a 3 day urge and I simply needed to let go of some control, so I lost control. Tomorrow will be better - although I still have more cider and gummies leftover. I don't even want to think about them right now, I feel disgusting.

The estrogen producing foods are foods I already generally eat! Oh well. I emailed my dr back home and he said that it is acceptable, so... that's that. I don't really have any other choice except to lose weight, so that's the game plan. Failed a little bit tonight, but I finished my dark chocolate, so that's gone and I'm not going to buy more.
