I gained a pound and a half.

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.

  1. Who knows what causes that. Whatever it is, it's irritating! But of course, you're right. It's just life, not the end of the world. Well, since we talked an hour yesterday and an hour and a half the day before, I guess that's all I have to say!
