On Saturday I ate. I ate what I wanted, I ate too much, I was not in control. This scares me.
I made the decision to have a day free from the constraints of perfection. Perfection turned straight into abandon. This is how I seem to be. All or none, black or white, call it what you will.
I am okay with taking a day. I am not okay with going to the point of abandon. It also scares the crap out of me that this will signal the start of the end, I'm done. After all, this is what always happens. I will NOT let that happen.
Yesterday I struggled and a battle raged on within my head. Thoughts of defeat, what's the point, now I'm going to gain weight this week. I didn't give in. Today has been a bit easier but I am still scared of the scale tomorrow. I don't want it to trigger more.
I've been trying to be logical about it all.... One day, it's not that bad. You can learn from this experience and be better prepared next time. It is okay to not be perfect. There may be a gain but that too is not the end of the world. This is a journey not a quick trip.
That is all true, but it's still scary. If I let it, my mind could still defeat me. I'm going to try my hardest not to let it because it is what it is, moving on! I will NOT give up!
