The weekly weigh in, week 8

This wasn't an easy week on the diet. Because it's becoming routine, I'm starting to get a little sloppy and didn't track as well as I should. Because the program allows it, I've been eating chocolate, but I'm still not over thinking of chocolate as a "bad" food, one that I simply cannot have on a diet. I stayed within the parameters of the diet. I didn't exceed my daily and weekly points. It's not like like I went on a rampage in a Godiva shop, but I did hit the Halloween candy. I've been cooking a lot until this last week when I was invited to eat out on three separate nights, and I ate reasonable meals, not just salad and water. The guilt over enjoying good, delicious, rich food has been a little whisper in the back of my mind. Just how freaking low has my self-esteem been that I've felt doing something good for myself could only be done correctly if it didn't feel good? Oh well, that's an issue for another blog entry and a few more years of therapy. Anyway, when I stepped on the scales, I expected to gain this week but instead had lost another 2.8 pounds. Total weight loss so far: 27.8 pounds.

There are no bad foods; our job is to learn to limit portions.
