Day 83 -18 Spring has sprung!
Well, I'm back to England and isn't it gorgeous? Lovely weather and beautiful scenery. We went for a walk this evening when I got back from work and the dog had a fine time swimming in the river after her sticks and ignoring the ducks and sheep. She's a bit of a coward so if a sheep looks at her a bit sideways she's right back to Mum and Dad!
I've been really hungry today but have powered through with my water and not given in to temptation. To be honest, I think it's my own fault. I had a few mouthfuls of chicken and a crust of bread last night when really tired with low resistance. Not sure why but suspect it was some crooked thinking around the idea that I've been really good in France and "deserved" a treat or something!!
Just goes to show that you can do the hard stuff like a weekend in France and then fall down in your own familiar kitchen!! Anyway, I'm not going to beat myself up about it. It wasn't exactly a big blowout or anything - but I'm going to make sure that it doesn't become a habit and that's why I'm pleased that I've resisted temptation today.
The thing is, once you've given in once, it's a lot harder to resist the next time the idea to snack pops into your head. Still, what doesn't break you makes you stronger... And, learning to cope with temptation is more important than losing weight fast in the long run.
Another strange thing happened today too: I was stopped today in the corridor by a youngish woman from work who I don't know at all. She's really pretty but a few stone overweight. She just launched straight into questions about the diet and that gave me the excuse to evangelise about Lighter Life. I think she may go for it and I hope so as she's young and only has 3 stone to go and it's her chance to save herself years if not decades of yoyo dieting. Fingers crossed eh?
Off to read some blogs and then bed....night night...
