Well I am at the end of my week for weight loss and I stepped on the scale this morning to get a feel for what I will be at tomorrow for my official week weigh-in. What a shocker!
Actually it isn't much of a shocker at all. This has been a week of poor choices. Fried foods, McDonald's, alcohol....... Looking back I think I stayed within my calorie range only 2, maybe 3, days.
I am learning that I do well when I have complete control of my schedule and surroundings but when events or eating out happens--I make poor choices.
For example. We went out to eat for a friends birthday. I decided it was a good idea to get fish and chips, we split a desert, and then went dancing where I had several drinks over the course of the evening.
I had no idea that my calorie total was going to be so very very high. I am pretty sure I didn't even put everything in for the day and it was over 3,0oo!!!!! Really??? No wonder I am the size I am!
So tomorrow I think it will just be a 1 lbs loss, maybe 1.5. I am disappointed in myself. During the week I didn't think I was doing that bad but when I look at the whole week.....well the truth is in the numbers. It is like I have the memory of a gold fish. I don't remember yesterday's choices and then decide I have been good so I can cheat a little bit today while out to eat.
One good thing did happen this week. I got McDonald's yesterday. We were on the way to a concert, running late and I had no food in the house. I only ate 3/4 of the burger and 1/2 of the medium fries. It was gross. I didn't like it and didn't want to eat it. All I wanted was some fresh peaches and broccoli. Now THIS IS a major breakthrough. I love french fries. LOVE them. And I didn't want them. I didn't even like them.
So I guess there is SOMETHING to celebrate this week. I will take my successes where I can.
