Haven't seen a regular WHEE diary in a while, so I'll post another in my ongoing struggle.

WHEE (Weight, Health, Eating and Exercise) is a community support diary for Kossacks who are currently or planning to start losing, gaining or maintaining their weight through diet and exercise or fitness. Any supportive comments, suggestions or positive distractions are appreciated. If you are working on your weight or fitness, please -- join us! You can also click the  WHEE tag to view all diary posts.

Some days just go right off the rails.  I don't know that it's going to be a bad day to start, but then I just pop some peanut m and m's as I pass through the dining room.  Or grab 'just a few' pringles while I'm in the kitchen.  The next thing I know, I'm heaping on the scalloped potatoes at dinner, knowing that I took far too many, and then getting in to the fridge and grabbing half a piece of baked chicken when I let the dogs out in the middle of the night.

It seems like most days I can keep on track, even figure in a 'treat', but some days just out of the blue, the control is just gone that day, even though I'm still writing down every last calorie, watching them mount up ever higher.  Aaargh.  I did notice, though, that this last time was right after a day on which my weight dropped 1.6# in a single day, so maybe my body said 'Hey!  Stop that!'  And told me to eat, eat, eat!  The problem is, I then went right back up that 1.6#.  Slow and steady wins the race, go too fast and you get pulled over and not let go til you've lost all the time you thought you were making...

So how are things going for everyone else?  I hadn't planned to write another one of these so soon, but frustration hit, along with that binge eating day...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
