Weight Loss & "Cheat" Day

Sunday, February 19, 2012

Today is my "official" weigh in day, and it's also my "cheat day", where I can eat any food I want and as much as I want, whether it's good for me food or bad for me food. I think my metabolism gets stuck during the week, since I usually eat around the same number of calories (& fat, etc.) each, my "cheat" day is all about confusing my system. The funny thing is that even though I can eat anything on my cheat day, I don't really want to. It's almost like I have to force myself to eat something "unhealthy". Eating healthy has become such a (good) habit over the past almost two months, that I actually have a difficult time eating unhealthy, for just one day. So, I don't go overboard...I may just have something extra, like a huge cookie, or a few buffalo chicken wings (things I normally don't eat).
This cheat day does seem to be least, not negatively affecting my weight loss.
I lost 1 lb. this week!

    This sounds like a great idea! I really need to get my eating back under control.

    I like this idea, got to get the cheating under control. One day a week instead of every night might do it!

    Gratz on the weight loss and good luck with your cheat days. It does get harder as your body gets use to the good stuff.

It's great when things align and we find that eating well has become natural to us.

    Glad you have a "cheat day" but your taste buds really crave good food after a while. Good luck on your venture!
