Made Soup

Yesterday I ate too much. I'll call it a binge because I wasn't hungry at all and when I finished I was full to bursting and uncomfortable. Why? The DH had an interview and everyone was out of the house at 7 a.m. I had several plans for the day, but nothing definite... I made an omelette.

I went to spin and then went shopping. I was really unhappy with my weight, but have no one and nothing to blame. I ate too much last week - PERIOD. I'm not following the plan - PERIOD. So I bought a lot of veggies and fruit and shrimp and a chicken. At home I prepped veggies, made a Moroccan veggie stew and massaged kale salad. I mixed a balsamic vinaigrette. And then I had soup times 2 (its so good) and picked at the rotisserie chicken as I stripped the meat. When the little one came home we went to the Syrian market for meat/spinach pies for the DH and girls for dinner and I had a piece of homemade baklava... and a toasted coconut from Starbucks, and 2 cookies with almondmilk left over from the weekend. When all was said and done I'd put away 2000+ calories which doesn't support weight loss at all.

So today I begin again. The coworkers I'm in a weight loss group with have lost 38 and 22 lbs this year. I'm barely holding on to the 10 I lost in October.... What's the deal? No pitty party here, just frustrated. And all I can do is keep trying.

I learned in yoga class, and I teach it, too: stay on your mat. What's happening on another mat isn't about you. Don't compare yourself to anyone else.

What I see you writing is the "what" of what's happened, and hinting at wondering about the "why" but not really going there yet. Since the behavior seems contrary to your goals, the "why" needs to be explored, I think. Even just with meditating on it. Hope this helps.
