…buy a bag of Robin Eggs and finish the entire thing in a 24-hour time period. And try to feel guilty about it but can’t, because they are just that good.
…forget to charge my iPod and a scheduled run turns into an unscheduled walk.
…stop tracking my food deliberately and feel completely out of control.
…realize how much tracking helps me stay accountable and, most of all, more in control of my body.
…experience anxiety on weeks when I’m not working as hard as I need to be at this weight loss thing, worrying I will never be able to control myself and always be labeled as fat.
…get annoyed by the perfectionists in my Weight Watchers meetings.
…think the best part of my week is after weigh-in, when I get to eat whatever I want and not worry about points values.
…experience major exercise guilt, either from not working out or not working out as hard as I wanted to.
…think about quitting soda cold turkey, but I know I would be miserable.
…get really jealous of others’ weight loss successes.
…make a really good, healthy choice over a really bad, unhealthy choice and feel completely satisfied and proud of myself.
…forget how good an early morning workout feels. I wish I could do that every day.
…think I have a really bad week and will never see successful weight loss…and end up losing more weight than I thought I could.
