My new do...

Okay, much adieu about a do. Here's my last year in the 40's new color and hair cut. Not the best picture, but I think you can tell what it looks like and that it doesn't look like Kate Goselin as my kids said.

Okay, so yesterday was great food wise until I got home and then suddenly a case of the crab ass hit me and I ate for comfort. I ate a one cup serving of a comfort food casserole...I call it McGiver chicken casserole, because I made it standing at the pantry with nothing but a piece of trip wire and a shoelace, lol. That wasn't too bad, but then I ate a handful of Cheeze Nips and a Little Debbie gingerbread man. The bad thing is that I wasn't even remotely hungry when I ate the last two things and so began the blatant bashing that goes on in my head when I eat for comfort. What I should do is say... "Well, Theresa....that was productive right? you feel comforted right? Yeah, I didn't think so, now let's move on and address what's really bothering you." It wasn't a total wash, I did not continue eating until I felt sick, that is something, right? But I did lash out irrationally at my hubby, because I was angry with myself (that make a lot of sense too, right?"

Okay, now I've got to be productive today at work and with my food. This morning, I had one of those moments when I was fixing my coffee. I use 1 teaspoon of real sugar in my coffee each morning and milk. I thought, I guess I could skip the sugar...dude, that's like 15 - 20 calories and the milk is about 45, then I was like, no, I like my coffee that way. I said, hey self, maybe it's this mentality that's keeping you from getting to your goal and then I said, I'm not willing to change that...maybe my goal just isn't important enough to me. I've got some thinking to do, don't I.

I hope you guys have a great day, and Chris, TWIRP is when the girls ask the boys to the dance it stands for the woman is required to pay, interesting. I'll post pictures for sure.

Big Hugs,
T

Love the new do...and it doesn't look like Kate (with or without the kids...LOL). It's so easy to fall back into those old habits of comforting ourselves with food...even though you did indulge at least you realized what you were doing and put a stop to it. That is progress, my friend!

Great hair!

I think it's ok to have a few things you just like "the way it is", as long as a few things don't turn into everything.

I could forgo my liquid creamer in my coffee in the morning, but I just don't want to. I'd rather give up other things, like dessert.

I love the new do and you do not look like Kate!

You are far prettier than her. You are making progress a handful is better than a bagful after all!

Hang in there.

Stephanie said...

I gotta say I love the new do!! It is perfect for your personality...sassy and perky! :) You really look great, Theresa!!

Ronnie said...

Love the hair! Some things should not be sacrificed... like real sugar.

Chris said...

Oooh, pretty!! You look quite sassified with that new 'do :)

Ah, thanks for the TWIRP explanation - we call it a "Sadie Hawkins" up here.

And yeah, I take a shot of half and half and a spenda in my coffee. 2% just doesn't do it for me. Like Lyla says, it's ok, just as long as the "I want it this way" doesn't turn into a free-for-all. Words to live by.

Looking fabulous!!!! xxxx

Tina said...

weyhey...I like the haircut. I always cut then regret and spend the next several months growing it out only to think I can get a cut 'this time' I like.

Good for you on thinking about the little things. Maybe one will be worth it and then again maybe not. It is prefectly OK to be where you are an happy with it.

By the way..I am a cougar too! My husband is 5 years younger than I am.

xxxooo

Gilly said...

You do look lovely!

Want to know what my inner voice says to me in times like that? "if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten".

I rarely listen though...

Linda said...

Love your haircut!
I do think it's a victory when we can stop a binge. I had gotten binge-y lately and the thing was I always felt so bad physically now that it's no comfort. Which I guess is good. It's a learning process - right?

Thanks for explaning TWIRP! (I'm late catching up with everything) I've hit a point in my weight loss where I really need to decide how important it is for me to lose more because I'm not sure I really WANT to make the changes I need to.
