breaking with tradition

Yesterday we had a big family get-together to celebrate my Grandad's birthday.

I ate and ate and ate all day. I wasn't even hungry most of the time. I just ate cos the food was in front of me, and it's what I always do in these situations.
This morning I weighed myself and I was 218. That's up 12 on last Monday. I'm almost certain that some/most of that is water given the junk I ate over the weekend, but still, it's not good!

I know that I need to overcome the mental assumption that when I'm at something like that I will overeat. Cos it was like I just went into autopilot, and that meant disengaging brain and just shovelling the food in.

I'm back on track today, but I do need to give this some more thought..

Breakfast
bacon, egg and veggie curry

Snack
A pear

Lunch
Veggie Curry with cheese on the top

Snack
A pear

Dinner

Hi Debs! I'm sure most of that is water gain. Good for you for getting back on track today!

I think that falling off the wagon every now and then is ok...we all have times like that but we know we fell off and that all that stuff isn't healthy, so we pick ourselves up, brush off and back with our healthy eating habits. :)
