But I have eaten a large number of excess calories and expect to drink a large number more this evening.
I've been thinking about switching my emphasis to maintaining for a while now. I was feeling reluctant because it felt like failure - admitting that it was just too hard, I mean. However, I have decided that that is just silly. I'm supposed to working towards a healthy life here, not just a skinny one - and being obsessional and depressed and stressed isn't healthy. Letting myself get frustrated isn't healthy - especially when according to the (admittedly flawed) BMI scale I am already a perfectly healthy weight. So I'm going to try maintaining for a while. Thanks Bearfriend for suggesting it independently - if I'd said it first I might have just dismissed your comments as sympathy rather than agreement, but I can't really do that when you weren't directly prompted! I'm going to carry on weighing daily because I go weird and greedy when I don't, and I'll still be posting them daily as well - so you can expect me to be upset again tomorrow! But at least I'll feel like I've earned it after the edamame crisps - and the Sparkling Shiraz I see in my future.
Cottage cheese griddle cakes with lightly stewed blackberries, blueberries and strawberries
Tinned Split Pea soup with a laughing cow salad sandwich
Barbecued vegetables with buckwheat
A summer fruit protein smoothie, fromage frais with blackberries & blueberries (and a tiny bit of chilli chocolate grated on top), lots of edamame crisps, a nakd cashew bar, some baked almonds, some peanut butter... the edamame crisps and peanut butter are the only bits that I shouldn't have had mind you...
