Yum, yum, yum!!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

I was so unbelievably bad yesterday - and it was so worth it!! For the first time since last July, I hit 124 this morning!! So what?! Today I am back on track and will be eating soup and doing my Cardio.

Yesterday we had a 2nd Thanksgiving since we were not all able to be together on the real one. I fried a turkey and I overindulged in the skin which had been seasoned. And we had Birthday cake with ice cream - and I had 2 portions! But it was worth it and I enjoyed myself.

Here's the difference - are you listening? I tracked every morsel to the best of my ability!! Yup, even the cake, although I was unable to be sure of the calorie count. I was at least 1000 calories over for the day!!

Life goes on and we just try again and keep on tracking. That is the difference in this being a lifestyle change. Short of dying, we always get another chance to try again! Ain't life great?!!

Love you,

    You da "wo"man! That is why I am losing so slowly. I have really changed how I eat and don't just go hog wild like I use to but I also have not gone so strict that I am miserable. I think it's the happy medium that will work in the end.
Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping us motivated!
Happy Valentine day!

    Good for you Linda. This is surely the ultimate winning attitude. Having a relaxed celebratory day is all the more special when it fits into a healthy lifestyle. You've got things truly in control.

What a wonderful example to us all - a great role model.

    I think you have living a new lifestyle down to a T. It is all about LIVING and indulging once in a while is part of that. What you now understand is that you have to adjust for a bit, what you do daily to make up for indulging and then life just goes on. It is great Linda!!!

    Thank you for sharing this message. I had forgotten it this week and let one meal at the Chinese buffet stretch into 5 days of grazing. I felt like a failure rather than reminding myself that it was one meal out of a lifetime of meals. I am back on track as of yesterday and am deeple grateful for your memory jogger. Happy Valentines Day to you. Hugs from Janet.

That meal sounded really good too.

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day today, Birthday cake, was it Ray's BD or someone else. I think YOURS is in November.
