This is life, I tell myself. Not the end of the world.
But, it is frustrating. I wasn't THAT bad (she said sheepishly.) I ate a cookie. I relaxed a bit at Sunday lunch. There are supposed to be weekly points, people! Sometimes I think when I just look at my weekly points balance, I gain weight.
It probably has something to do with having messed up my metabolism with a lifetime of yo-yo dieting. Or maybe it's because, having been sick for so long, I am not exercising at all. Or maybe it's because I haven't gotten a full night's sleep in a few days. I ate something salty. Maybe there's a full moon.
While I am momentarily discouraged, I'm not going to do something silly like giving up or eating too much. All I can do -- all I know how to do -- is get up tomorrow and write down everything I eat again and stay within that points balance like I'm supposed to. Another day. Another chance. My mantra for the day: Life, not the end of the world.
