I treated myself today, just a little - back on track tomorrow

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Well today, I had my weigh in and I was down 3.8 lbs. That was great, now I have to see a drop again next week. I have no problem doing it for one week, then gaining again the following week.

I did treat myself though today - I had a piece of cake without frosting that my teenage son made as well as a sip of wine to help celebrate the arrival of our friends wife to Canada.

Back on track tomorrow!

    The cake was very good emoticon . My oldest son made it and it was strawberry. It was a mix I bought in the USA. Being able to enjoy it with company was the best part and that I planned for it. The guilt wasn't there.

    Thanks for your comments - always encouraging.

    Just because you enjoyed a treat doesn't mean that you're off the diet. It's been my experience that if I can't have a weekly treat, then I'm going to cheat before too long, and then I toss in the towel for another few days.

    So, when I have a treat, I try to keep it as low in fat or sugar as I can, and if someone hands me a big slab of birthday cake, I make sure I have a LOT of water handy, and eat no more than half the piece I was given.

    One thing I've done in the past when sugar is shoved in front of me, is that I tell people that I'm borderline diabetic. That usually stops the barrage of questions about how the diet is going... it's usually understood that I have to stay away from sugar. It doesn't matter that the excuse I use is a lie, as long as I get the point across that I can't have that particular food on my diet.

    Was the cake good at least? :-D
