Hola, Mexican Food

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Well, today was my week 3 weigh in. I got up out of bed excited to step on the scale and to my surprise.......a BIG FAT 0 weight less, nothing, nada!!! I think you can tell that I was a little more than disappointed. How could this be? I'm eating low carb, no bread, no potatoes, no white flour, lots of veggies, exercising,....what did I do wrong?

While I am pondering all of this, my husband comes home from a visit to the doctor's office. He immediately wants to know if I'd like to go eat at the new Mexican Restaurant we have in our little town. Well, I probably don't have to tell you what I did. I said, "YES, let's go." He knows Mexican food is my favorite. I was thinking I'll teach you scale for not moving!! How utterly stupid is that?? Blaming the scale. Although I don't know who or what to blame because I have no idea why I didn't lose even 1 lb, my emotions took over and I ate at the Mexican buffet. I did drink water, had only about 10 tortilla chips, had the chicken fajita WITHOUT the tortilla, and a big tossed salad....believe me, that was much, much better than what I usually would have eaten at a Mexican restaurant, but still all I did was hurt myself. Why did I do that????????

I'm trying not to beat myself up over it. Dinner this evening is another meal, one I can eat the way I'm suppose to. Trying to keep my wits about me. I need to really work on not depending on the scale so much and go by how I'm feeling. I do feel better, my clothes are fitting better, no one else can tell, but I can and that is what counts.

To anyone who reads this blog, don't give in to emotional eating. Stand strong!!!

    I KNOW! It's frustrating when you are hoping to see a change. NORMAL people would lose weight so why don't I? Not an easy answer but stick with it. Persevere. Like the little mouse who fell in the cream bucket and eventually it churned to butter so he could escape... that's me! Just don't give up. Instead today celebrate your good choices. Sometimes it is good, better and best choices. There was a time when I was not making any good choices in a day. Now I can say how many good choices and really get excited about the best choices. I can't say you will lose weight. However every choice is leading towards a healthier you.

    Hey-I really liked the truthfulness of your blog. So often I will judge how I am doing by the bathroom scales. Since I have started my Spark plan I do not jump on the scales every time I go buy them. This Friday is my third weigh in. I know I am watching what I eat, walking every day and using this website to help me. I am really feeling better about ME. Don't beat yourself up-this is a journey toward a healthy lifestyle and it sounds like you are really making great gains toward your goal. Keep on keeping on and always Spark On!
