Like the album name implies, I have cheated many times since I started this short journey. I'm only cheating myself, though. And I tell myself just don't think twice, it's all right.
My cheating involves weighing myself. Just couldn't help it. Of all the rules I made, this one was clearly the least important. I threw it in there on a whim. So ignoring it doesn't make me feel guilty.
More than two weeks in I feel my confidence growing. When I talked about this time of year having relatively few tests, clearly I hadn't really figured out what the month would bring. Parties, lunches with friends, dinners out, a few road trips, and the need to resist the voice of hunger is slowly going away. This past weekend in particular was a true test. Many hours on the road and a full day out in Raleigh, NC with friends. I handled it all pretty well. Now I just need to try and be reasonable about portions and the content of my main courses.
