I've been struggling with food, and yesterday I hardly walked at all, getting in about 1/3 my steps (just incidental walking). There were doughnuts, cookies, fruit, and cake at work. Although I ate only 1/2 a doughnut, I also had a piece of cake and I think, 3 cookies. I had a little fruit but there wasn't very much and I did not want to be the one who ate all the fruit. I could not stop thinking about this food, and went to the room it was in more than once. I moved some of it into a more common area so it would get eaten before everyone left.
Also my colleague had peanuts in the shell and noticed that I was "eyeing" them. He offered me some and I did eat some. I am embarrassed that he noticed I was looking at them when we were talking. I told him that I was food oriented and that I found food distracting.
Then at home I continued to make poor choices, eating all of a package of handmade health crackers (PS note to self, it's not healthy to eat them all at once!) with sour cream (light), a peanut butter bar, and I think something else but I forget what.
So this morning I weighed myself (pounds up, fat down), walked, ate a healthy breakfast, and did a few chores before work. I can do this! I've done it before and succeeded.
Well, I need to get going.
