The battery in my scale died yesterday so I changed it out. The battery I changed it to must have also been on it's last legs because the scale is now presenting me with "LO" rather than numbers. Perhaps this is good fortune to allow me another day to recover my weight loss total before I see it. *Jack-, your comment cracked me up!!! :D
I think we are having another piñata party today to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I asked for the piñata to include some celery sticks amongst all of the candy. I was serious.
I feel as though I let my readers down by allowing that afternoon of uncontrolled portions. Some would say that I shouldn't feel ashamed because I'm only human and human's screw up from time to time. I can't rationalize it in that manner. I'm feeling shame (as I well should) because it was complete mental rebellion.
*Interesting article explaining this phenomena by Dr. Eades.
Losing control like that is frightening. I am determined to never regain the weight so I have to internalize what exactly happened and come up with a plan to halt that behavior if it ever tries to override my good senses again. My plan is to shut it down immediately and not have a single morsel of food until the next morning (giving the feeling time to expire). That will make me look forward to the scale, make me feel proud of the power it took to not eat, and build up a trend of positive reaction and strong-armed control.
