I am forcing myself to post something positive. Thinking if I see it in writing, maybe I will believe it a feel it. My co-workers took me out to lunch today for my upcoming birthday. I picked a diner that some of them have gone to in the past and raved about. I was really excited, and totally ready to cheat on my diet. They were sitting in the office, looking at the menu, and mentioning so many things... I was definitely having curly fries! I cannot remember the last time I had curly fries and they were going on about how great they are.
The diner forgot about our reservation, so we couldn't sit together, and since that defeated the whole purpose of going out together, we went to a different restaurant. I didn't get my curly fries, and ended up cheating on my diet for something that wasn't even very good.
But the reason we had the problem was because there were so many of us. Most of the time 5 or 6 people go out for someone's birthday. There were 10 of us today. And I should be really thankful that everyone in my department took the time to celebrate with me. So I am really trying to focus on that aspect of the day and feel positive. But I could use some help cause I'm actually feeling rather defeated.
