The Buffet Strikes Again

This is my last week at my internship. Also it was my supervisor’s last week on the team. So we, along with one of the chaplains, went out to eat Indian Buffet. I totally didn’t feel like putting the effort into figuring out what everything was. Also the chaplain made me feel nervous, so I didn’t bother recording what I ate. I didn’t even bother figuring out if I was full or not. I just ate and ate while my supervisor and the chaplain talked. I went over today, but I can’t tell you what I would have done differently. I didn’t feel like I overate. Maybe I should have stopped eating the naan when I discovered it was burnt. Maybe I should have passed on the Chinese pastry that was offered at the meeting.

I think my motivation to record what I eat is dwindling. It could be because I’m so tired.

For those all-you-can-eat places, I have found the easiest way to record eating is to just make up some huge number (say 20,000 kj) and let that number be recorded. If you have less than one a month, they are not going to have much effect.

But yes, counting kilojoules is the WORST thing about losing weight. It is just too complicated, weighing everything and writing things down. I doubt many people last more than a month doing it. Weighing daily is so, so much easier.

Hang in there, Lily. It's tough when times are stressful or busy. Just keep trying this week and life will get easier once you're done.

Ugh, those buffets are dangerous. I could eat enough to fill a house at one of those places!

I fear no one’s opinion! I am knowledgeable, focused, and efficient. I make this priority and build from experience. I do this for my children and myself. Supported by love, I will persevere.
