Still battling with the demon food

I got myself to the gym, and had a great weights session. I also did a fair bit of walking and carrying groceries today. All was going really well, until this afternoon.

I organised a Spanish meal with a group of people from work. I hosted it and it was a lot of fun getting the food prepared. I cooked a vegetarian paella, as some of my friends are vegetarian. Everyone brought a dish and we had a veritable feast.

I also bought some cheese, biscuits and olives. After the others left, I managed to eat the leftovers. I totally blew my calorie budget for the day and I am really disappointed in myself.

I am trying to think of the things that I did today that showed control over the demon food, and I did have a few small victories. I managed to send the bag of potato chips that didn't get opened home with someone. I threw out some of the cheese and olives. I put the rest of the really delicious cape seed loaf in the freezer.

I suppose I can take consolation in the fact that a really bad day now is nothing like a really bad day used to be, but I had thought I'd do a lot better. I am going to have to improve in this area. I like hosting festive occasions. I just have to be smarter in future.

I think, for a while at least, I'll have to keep cheese on the forbidden food list. I like it more than is good for me.

Still, this is just a setback and I am back on track already.

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. Yours is really impressive - 38kg! I need to do a bit of maths here, but that's about 80 lbs, or a bit more even, which is...6 stone, as we'd calculate it here in partly-metric Britain. Wow. I shall remember you as I restart my battle.

This is my first time checking out your blog and I am absolutely amazed at how well you have done with your weight loss- it is such a fantastic achievement and I don't think one demon food incident can diminish that. I am thinking "man she is so amazing" not "I can't believe she ate cheese"!
