Oh My!!!

Monday, August 23, 2010

Having a friend take one to breakfast (for my birthday) is sometimes counter-productive. The last time this occurred I was able to find a yogurt and fruit dish on the menu that allowed me to stick with my normal daily eating plan. BUT ... alas, today was not so easy. The best I could do was a veggie omelet ... even with my bringing about half the meal home I used most of a day's calories at one meal. Aye yi yi yi! Now I am heading out to walk, until I keel over, hoping to counteract the effect of an less than healthy breakfast. :)

    Way to go! Another pound down the drain. You are going to town, my sister! Keep up the good work.

That's very cool (and I'm not surprised!). I weigh daily too, Deborah... it's the only way for me!

Congratulations and well done, my friend!

    All morning I have been chuckling to myself. Sometimes life and things that happen are almost unbelievable.
I shared my feelings of dismay on my blog, when I was treated to breakfast out yesterday. I was especially careful not to exceed my usual calories through the rest of the day.
With trepidation I stepped on the scales this morning. (Yes, I weigh myself daily.) I almost fell off the scales with laughter, upon seeing that, after 5 weeks of not loosing a pound, TODAY I am another pound closer to my goal. How fun is that?
Thanks again to all who encouraged me yesterday.

    Thanks to each of you who left a message on my blog. I was shocked to find even one response ... but to have three wonderful encouraging comments. You all made my day! You are all right, of course. I almost panicked while entering the food on my food tracker.
I have done well the rest of this day .... walked 4 miles this afternoon ... that helped. :)
Thanks for the birthday wishes, too.

    Happy Birthday, Deborah!
Nancy's right... don't fret! You are making healthy choices most of the time. You made the best choice you could make this morning. You only ate half. You counted it all. You're going for a walk. AND, it's your birthday! I'd say you did all the right things.

I suspect your body will just go "huh?", and then move along! Don't let it spoil your day!

I think you did well, D... be proud of yourself! Remember the 80/20 rule, my friend, and just let it go! You'll be just fine - promise!

    emoticon Happy b-day!! Aren't you glad it is only once a year? Do not beat yourself up over one day's food. You will make it up tomorrow. Keep on Sparking!
