I have been trying to figure out why I allowed myself to gain weight during the divorce, new job, move to a new home, etc… I weighed myself daily so nothing was a surprise but yet it wasn’t enough to make me stop. I love Netflix and I began watching the series Lost that was on a few years ago. I had never seen it so I watched it from beginning to end. There was one particular episode where Hurley was meeting with his psychiatrist. Hurley was overweight and he was quite depressed following an accident where a deck that he had been standing on collapsed resulting in the death of 2 friends. His counselor pointed out that following the accident that Hurley stopped speaking and sleeping, but never eating – because that is how he punishes himself.
I stopped right there and thought of this for a bit and came to the realization that I am punishing myself. I have been punishing myself for 2 years. I realized that this needs to stop. I am going back to the basics and doing my meal planning. I did that on this board so I am going to return to doing them on the board each week. If I stop I want someone to call me on it and ask how I am doing. 😛
So here we go.
Monday- Cream of Tomato Soup with Basil (I will also take this for my lunches)
Tuesday- Pepper Crusted Roast Beef, mashed cauliflower, broccoli salad
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday- I will make fajitas using the leftover pot roast
Saturday and Sunday- Low Carb pizza
