Stick To The Plan

So I am making a decision to eat about 400 - 500 calories more than I want to each day.  I don't particularly LIKE this decision but I continue to do this every day.  You'd think that if it was so easy to decide to DO it, it would be just as simple to decide NOT to do it. 

Wouldn't you think?

It's not like when I grab those 2 breakfast bars I don't KNOW that they weren't on the meal plan. I am not rationalizing that I ran an extra mile so I can afford it. I know darn well that I am going OVER what I want to be at for calories.

Yet. I. Still. Do. It. 

I wouldn't say that I am completely blowing it. I'm still within decent limits. But there still is that lack of control which bugs the jeebers out of me!!!  Come on! Just get over it already!  Eat whats on the plan.  Stick to it. 

I came in at about 1900 calories today.  Dumb.  Stick to the plan.  Tomorrow's Weigh In day!!


  1. Hi, Debbi!
    Just wanted to drop by and visit your weightloss blog! I'm on my way to bed now, but wanted to leave a comment before I do.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments.


  2. yea this is where i struggle too- when i end up doing good for a while, i eventually blow it all in one night and feel like crap for days after ward.
    one extra snack probably won't mess the whole thing up, as long as it's a healthy snack. but we kinda kid ourselves by saying, "i worked out today, i can have this bag of chips".. when it should be "i worked out today so i'm gonna have this apple for hydration, natural sugars, and fibers" which sounds better?! DUH! lol i guess thats the sweet and sugar lover in me, but i'd take a brownie and an extra mile on the treadmill over an apple any day. HA!

  3. Debbi, I'm so glad I found your blog! I can so relate to your posts. It makes me think "yes, why am I doing that?" It's like the food is in control instead of me. Thanks so much for posting with such honesty. It's truly a help to me :)

  4. And why did I eat half of that chocolate cobbler? Because it was there. So I ate one more bite and threw it in the garbage. It won't be bothering me any more.
