Chocolate covered pretzels are my nemesis


Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Recently, I attended a training in Atlanta for work. The Marriott in which we stayed was lovely, but the food served launched a vendetta against my waistline! There are certain foods I know to NEVER buy, because I find it impossible to stop eating them. I don't consider myself to be a binge eater, but there are a select few foods I love so much that I eat them until the bag is empty. On that short list: Doritos, chocolate covered pretzels, mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I have eaten 1-2 entire bags of each of these before in total in life, so not much damage has been done because I avoid them like the plague.

However, this Marriott served a full breakfast (sausage, eggs, grits, ETC!) then TWO snack breaks, and lunch, all included in our package. And on those breaks were the dreaded chocolate covered pretzels! I must have had 15 in the morning break and 15 in the afternoon- each of the 5 days of training. I went to the gym 5 times that week, but unless I started exercising like Michael Phelps it wasn't going to help.

Damage done? 5 freakin' pounds! One for each day of pretzels and various other unhealthy goodies! Now to spend the next month burning it back off!

    Hi Ayanna: It's so easy to yield to those tempting snacks and to eat bad food. So glad you first recognized and acknowledged it. But you heroically kept exercising. Your continuous taking action motivates and encourages me. Keep up the excellent work. Congratulations of setting and reaching goals.

    I am sorry about your weight gain but it amazes me too how just slipping for a few days can set us back so much. I am still working on the 3 pounds gained from 1 weekend of bad eating! It sucks, but you will get the weight off and good work so far!
