When life gives you lemons, squeeze them on starchy foods like grains and potatoes - this may help you eat less overall. Acids (vinegar works, too) slow your body's digestion of carbohydrates, so you just might feel full longer.

As you all know I had a horrible battle with pizza this week and the pizza won. I sat last night and come to terms with that but I also came to terms with something else. I haven't been moving near enough. Am I getting in steps? Yes! Am I doing my quickfires? Yes! But other than that there isn't much activity going on with Wendy :-(...which certainly doesn't help if I fall to a temptation. So I decided it's high time I get off my butt and MOVE and then MOVE some more. Weigh in won't be great (there is a gain) but that's okay cause I am working toward next weeks weigh in now.

Where do I start? Actually it all started Wednesday...the ENEMY (pizza) reared his ugly head, and has been here up until yesterday. I told myself everyday that I would not surrender, but I found that I wasn't being that strong and gave in to it every day (Wed, Thurs, & Fri.). We aren't just talking one little slice every day, we are talking several every day. I really thought that I was stronger than that but found that I wasn't. I now vow that I can't fall to pizza again. This isn't my first fall with pizza but by far the worst. It all started months ago with just one slice one day, the next fall was a little more severe and the most recent was a plummet all the way to the bottom. There is no where for me to go from here but up. I know that you aren't supposed to keep kicking yourself about mishaps like this but it is really getting to me this time. I am a big girl and know that my choices have consequences. There are still a few days left before weigh in and things could change but I really feel as though I have sabotaged all the effort that I have put forward for months. This is by far the longest that I have ever stayed with a program to get rid of the weight. I sometimes wonder if I do this to myself subconsciously because I have NEVER been this successful before. Any other time, I have never lost more than 30 pounds before giving up. As of weigh in last week I had annihilated 46 pounds in 5 months. I only have 14 more pounds to lose to reach goal. That is great, I know this but there is something inside telling me that one more time I just cant succeed, that I am meant to fail every time. I know this isn't a healthy mindset but it's so hard to kick it this time. It is also time for TOM to come visit so the emotions are all over the place, which doesn't help at all. Not only have I let myself down this time, I feel as though I have let all my team mates down as well. I have got to shake this mentality and get back on track.
