Break from healthier eating

It has been a week since the end of Timmy's and my anniversary yummy food binge, and I've successfully avoided the scale since then. It wasn't completely because I was worried that the number would be higher.

I feel that it is okay to allow yourself some times where you just enjoy your food rather than agonize over every fat gram and calorie. If you are going to "let go" though, you need to have a clear date of when to get back on track, and realize that the number on the scale immediately after your derailment is going to be a bit higher. Knowing that, I decided to get back of the swing of things (healthier eating wise) for a bit before I weighed myself again, because I don't want to have such a mentally unhealthy obsession with food and the scale where I can't just enjoy what I'm eating every once in a while... even if the food is bad for me.

Anyway, I was please to see that the number was lower than it was before my "binge"; I lost two pounds. It is nice to know that I don't have to fear all will be lost if I want to take a weekend to just enjoy everything... even naughty food.
