Weigh-In ... The Price

Today's Weight: 210.5
Loss/Gain: +1.5
Total Loss So Far: -20.5

Well, last weekend I decided to allow myself to just eat whatever I wanted knowing in the back of my mind I was going to buckle down on Monday when I got back to the gym. Boy did I kind of go crazy. Lordy! I even surprised myself because I ate fine on New Year's Eve despite tons of food offered at a potluck and at my girls' birthday earlier that same day.

When TOM arrived on Monday right along with my first day of "buckling down" I realized why I sort of lost control on the weekend. That darn PMS munching, chocolate craving, soda craving, etc. etc..
(My apologies to the men reading this...)

Needless to say, I have paid the price for it on this weigh-in. I did much better all week with my eating and am in fact down today from what I weighed Monday by, well let's just say, more than a pound or two. However, I wasn't able to get away with the mindless eating/snacking entirely.

I can honestly say I haven't done that in months, so I'm only glad the price wasn't far higher than 1.5 pounds. Actually I have worked out every day this week and so that was probably my saving grace.

There will be no "letting it go" this weekend and hopefully not for a long, long while.


  1. I'm planning a nice controlled weekend too. There better be a trip to the gym for me. Where's my GPS? I think I forgot where it is.

  2. I think we all do that from time to time. I just started trying to lose weight...AGAIN!!! I had gained a good bit of what I'd lost. Too many of those "last suppers". I don't want to dwell on it though. I've decided to accept it and move forward... The very best of luck to you.

  3. It sounds like it could have been a lot worse. I know you will be so glad when you finally say goodbye to the 210's and are firmly in the plain old 200's. You can do this and I think your plan of a controlled weekend is a good one.

    It's sooooo cold here that all I want to do is sit in our warmest room and not move an inch!
