Yesterday, Day 11, I tangled with my main foe…ice cream. I lost. I ate a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I’m not going to beat myself up. There are going to be times when I have dessert, but I don’t want it to be like it used to be 3-5 days a week…or everyday actually. That was the way I was eating. Not just snacks…whole pints or containers of ice cream…binging.
I feel much better today. Basically had fruit all day…bananas, grapes, apples, banana chips..etc. I was 178 pounds this morning. Because ice cream was in my system I had more cravings for chocolate today…but I fought them off. I had to come straight home after work because if I had gone out browsing or shopping I think I might have faced some temptation.
I did some house cleaning. Feeling good. Taking it one day at a time.
Food is not recreation. Food is not recreation….or at least not the preferred type of recreation.
