I've eaten half a pizza and I think I'm going to be sick...

I've eaten half a pizza and I think I'm going to be sick. It's not that I've eaten too much, it's just the enormity of how I did it. I was  like a ravenous dog whose master is just about to come in through the door and catch me at it. I am sure it's not a good thing to bolt food like that.
Now I am trying to work out WHY?
Of late I have been so well controlled about food but today has been one of those days. I had to eat. It started off so well with bacon and eggs but by the time I got back off the school run I had to have 2 stale ginger biscuits (they should be called snaps but  they hardly do that after two weeks in the cookie jar). I love stale ginger biscuits, so much nicer than the fresh crunchy ones, they remind me of cake mixture. I should have restricted myself to 'just the one' but the temptation was just way too strong. I lumbered on until lunchtime when I bolted a small bowl of pasta and pesto left over from the boys' supper the night before with a hunk of bread and again fell into temptation with the last two ginger biscuits
Everything OK until the boys' supper tonight when I was revoltingly like the Wickedest Whippet. I mean I positively growled at the children as we fought over the last peices and I wolfed down all their crusts. The dogs were MOST put out.
To assuage my guilt I ate three clementines.
Now looking back at the amount of food I ate today I see it's really rather lacking in the old green stuff stakes and a tad high on the old carbs but in my defence I needed it, I was hungry and tired, oh and stressed. I gather not a good combo when you are trying to lose weight.
I think I had better start again right now with a relaxing bath and a good book, perhaps I will be calm enough not to eat again when my husband gets in from work. I know he likes me to have supper with him but today he'll have to lump it. I will not sympathy eat just to keep him company.
The piazza keeps repeating itself and I feel kinda bloated...eeew, pardon me, I won't say what happened just then but I feel an awful lot better now.
Off to soak in my bath and dream of celery sticks....

Adds a new meaning to bubble bath.
Have a spinach salad, that always fills me up with, well, nothing much, but you always feel as if it was something.

Oh god, I've got all this to come when I start Weight Watchers on 17th Jan. I had to wait till after my Birthday to start and till I'd eaten every last remnant of Christmas.... I'm still trying to get through the children's selection boxes that I hid on Christmas Day... I'm such a Saint to save them from themselves. Oh, pardon me!

The story is told of a man who wanted to lose weight. He bought a suit the size he could wear when he achieved his goal, and hung it on the fridge door. He dieted assiduously until he was close to his goal. Then, one night, hunger overtook him. He ate everything in the fridge. He even ate the suit, but choked on one of the buttons.

The best die-ting story I know.

May you have better success than he!

your body must have needed something that day and scoffing on some of everything helped you find it . Maybe next time go for the less is more approach, a few bites or one slice of pizza maybe. And keep the kids away, baby fingers are bad for anyones diet!
