A confession

This is what I discovered in my pantry late last night:

I ate half of it, with a spoon, standing alone in the kitchen at 11:30pm. It tasted funny, kind of like chemicals. I didn't remember buying it. I looked for an expiration date. August 2008. Gross!

I guess I'm not cured after all, not if I can still do stuff like this.

So much for losing a pound a week. I'll probably gain a pound this week...if I don't die from eating rancid frosting.

Oh yeah, i've done that :) That's why there's non left in my house, i ate it all!!

You are not alone! (Of course I can see that with the comments above as well.) :)

I know now - because of incidents such as this - that I can't even have that stuff in the house anymore. No self control - how sad is that!

Keep on, keeping on... one splurge during the week may slow down the work that you are doing - but if you get back up today and continue on the damage done from that frosting will be minimal.

You are doing great!

I agree with Fitcetera. don't beat yourself up - what matters now is what you do at your very next meal. You have had great success, and you will continue to!!

I paused when I read "I guess I'm not cured". Do you think we ever will be cured? I personally have always approached this as a lifetime challenge. To be honest - I kinda consider myself a food-a-holic - with the best I can hope for is to be in recovery.

Of course, I realize that my journey is not everyone's. You just made me think is all.

Get back on the wagon Diana - you're worth it.

We all have moments like that. As for "being cured" nope I don't think we'll ever be. Don't beat yourself up Diana. This is tough and it's for life. It really is about finding a balance.

you did throw the other half away, didn't you ?????

The only thing that scares me about that is the expiration date! I hope you don't end up sick :(

Big hugs Di. Seriously, that shit happens to all of us. If I had found that I would have either made the excuse to bake a cake or grab a box of graham crackers and spread the shit out of them with it. I would have turned it into waaaaaay more than a slight binge on icing. So you see, it could have been worse.

You're beautiful, smart, and oh so human. We love ya girl. Remember that when you're feeling crappy.

Don't worry Diana, it's supposed to taste like chemicals...and I'm pretty sure the expiration date on those kinds of things is more of a guideline to get you to buy more of it eventually!

Stupid frosting. Toss the rest, wipe off your face, and get back to business!
