I slipped up on my effort to lose 1 pound per month this month. Of course, it doesn’t help when you go on an emotional eating binge the day prior to weigh-in.
I’d been preparing and eating good evening meals for several days, so I decided I could order a pizza on Monday. Then, Tuesday was one of those days. Frustrations lead to junk eating. And left-over pizza. And wine.
But I’m not discouraged. The whole purpose of doing this “10 pounds per year” program is to lose the weight slowly, developing good habits along the way. I had a little hickup; but I’m not back to where I started—heck, I’m still within the overall “1 pound per month” goal. Still, it’s time to eat the (good) leftovers and pull out the cookbooks again.
