I think I had a little epiphany again. I was feeling so discouraged about the scale yesterday. But I finally had a day of really staying OP. I did go a little over my daily points yesterday, but that's because I ate a ton of salad at a friend's house for dinner last night. And I just had a little nibble of dessert. Thank goodness for Jack E who still likes to give mama a bite.
But I realized somewhere in all of that, that I really can't control what the scale says. I can't control if it goes up or down. I can only control what goes into my mouth. If the right things go into my mouth consistently, then the scale will go down. Eventually. It may not happen as quickly as I want it to (ie, overnight), but it will go back down.
Having an OP day gave me the shot in the arm that I needed. TOM is in full swing and I feel AWFUL today. But I am not going to comfort myself with crappy food. Aleena and I have planned on doing a little girls' day out today. We will shop for a while this morning and have lunch at Tokyo Joe's. Looking online at their menu, I think I choose to have a cup of miso soup, split some edamame with Aleena, sunomo and a veggie roll. And I may have another salad thing. Or I may splurge and have Joe's roll.
Feels so good to be able to plan a big splurge like that on food I LOVE!
Hope you all have a great day. I'm off to medicate a little more!
