I'm still reeling form my big loss yesterday but last night was another story. Last night I found out that stress really does trigger binge eating, in my case anyway. Sunday we had to move EVERYTHING out of our apartment because they were replacing the carpets. So all day Sunday and Monday we were living in total chaos. We couldn't find anything, we could even get into the kitchen, it was just a mess. So last night we have to go for a workout right after work, visit with hubby's parents as they just got back from a 2 week trip to Dominican (lucky lucky!) then come home, eat and move all of our stuff back into the apartment, clean, and try to get everything back to normal. By 9:00 I was exhausted. I kept walking to the fridge and mindlessly looking in. I opened the freezer and saw a frozen tub of light Cool Whip and I just sat there and stared at it thinking "Frozen Cool Whip would be heaven right now, it would honestly be the best thing I have ever tasted....but I held back. I ate my 2 cups of frozen veggies. Then I walked over to the cupboard and stared at those Caramel Chocolate Chip rice cakes for a good long while. I knew I wasn't going to break or fall off the wagon but I just kept thinking how good they would taste. Then I thought to myself..Would cool whip and rice cakes taste as good as losing 7 lbs felt?????? Then I got my answer NO WAY!!!!! So it just goes to show you that stress and fatigue may trigger a good binge.
Yesterday I forgot to tell you about an NSV I had on the weekend. I went bridesmaid dress shopping.....the dreaded "please don't make me wear a peach taffeta dress" bridesmaid shopping. I was a little nervous because those dresses always run so darn small and I was worried that I would put on a 14 and it would fit perfectly. I am the maid of honor in a friend's wedding so three of us headed out to the bridal shop in search for a dress. The wedding is a black and white wedding so I already had that going for me since I look hot in black. Plus black tends to hide the little bumps and lumps. Well I tried on a size 14 and it was floating. I had to hold it up to keep it on which made me feel fantastic but the real thrill came when the bride handed me a size 10. I looked at her and said, I'm not going to be able to zip that up! But she made me try it on and wouldn't ya know.....IT FIT!!! And it is the dress we are going to order. I won't be ordering it until about August so I am hoping to be ordering a size 8 by then! I was so excited. I left that shop with a swing in my hips let me tell you! To make it even better, the dress is adorable and I could totally wear it again. Who doesn't need a little black dress??
Hope every one else is having a GREAT week! Can't wait to read up on all your blogs!!
