I'm back home.
It's been nearly 2 weeks without a regimen.
Tomorrow, I stand on the scale and take in the damage, then start back on ediets on the way to "Onederland" and beyond.
At least to under 220, which was my original long-term goal, and now it's my next short-term goal.
I feel like I'm going to have to maintain a withdrawn persona - not so much with the parties and socializing. If I were in a phase of trying to assimilate my diet into real life, this wouldn't be important. But "real life" isn't really as important to me now as it was earlier in my life. I'm more like doing "fat camp" - trying to lose weight, and learn how to keep it off, later.
Over the past few weeks in Asheville, I did more restaurant stuff and eventually gave up the "fight" to try to maintain healthy eating habits and choices. I wonder how much that backsliding would apply if I had tried it here at home during normal living. Nevertheless, I did backslide and need some regimenting now. I think I need to quit sweets totally again for a while, only this time I don't have the encouragement of my father quitting smoking - I just have to do it for myself.
So, anyway, that's the plan, now.
