Under Pressure

Once again I’m finding myself under a lot of pressure, today starting with overeating.   Yesterday, Maurice and I, walked down to a BBQ restaurant in our neighborhood and I ate like a king.   A gluttonous king, of course.   Then we went to the movies and I had a large dark chocolate bar.  Then, when we got home I topped it all off with some ice cream sandwiches.  Granted the ice cream sandwiches were low calorie, however, if you eat enough of them the calories add up.  Two days before my Weight Watchers weigh in is not a good day to overindulge.  Normally I’d shrug it off, but as I said recently, the scale has not been my friend lately.  I’ll survive, but I’ll freak if I gain weight again this week.

I have a lot going on at school on Tuesday.  I have to present a speech which has to be written,  I have a test which I have to study for, and I have a special project to do.  So much for a long vacation weekend.

In addition to all that I have a lot of projects to take care of before the sermon I’ll be conducting at the end of July.

As I said in a recent post, my world keeps getting bigger and bigger.  Sometimes I’m thrilled, sometimes I’m scared, but either way it ain’t easy.

  1. I feel your pain! I hate it when I eat too much, especially if I am trying to watch what I am eating. Sometimes it feels like I have absolutely no control. Good for you for the weight you have lost so far and know that you can continue on your journey, even with slip-ups like you are experiencing. Best! Rose

    1. Fortunately, Rose, the slip up wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. In fact, it was nearly non-existent. I only gained 2/10ths of a pound. Of course, it doesn’t change that awful feeling when I eat too much. I was a happy camper after the Saturday weigh in.
