I admit to feeling a certain amount of smugness [contentedly confident of one's ability] as I am doing really well this time post comp (I know it has only been 4 days!).
I was reading through my blog posts this time last year and they are quite tortured. In the first couple of weeks I was bingeing nearly every second or third day.
I am still nervous about how long I can keep on the straight and narrow, but all I have to do is focus on one day at a time. Tomorrow night I am going out to dinner with Mr KatieP instead of having a calculated carb re-feed. I am hopeful that I can keep things under control. As I am not totally exhausted, depleted and starving, I may not need to be so anxious about it.
All I need to do is remember that I don't want to destroy all the hard work I've put in over the last 6 months, that I have mastered moderation and that if I stick to my plan I never have to return to the cold, miserable, exhausting land of calorie deficit ever again.
