I found the key to weight loss!

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Since about Dec 23, the scale has been teetering between 223-225. I have been diligently picking and choosing what to eat such as no holiday cookies, fudge or popcorn balls. Love those popcorn balls! So, perhaps my gain from 220 has been my lack of water consumption which I struggle with on a daily basis.

Xmas eve dinner at the SIL's house had me choosing between caramelized walnut sweet potatoes or having a mini black bottom cupcake. Since the SIL struggles with my vegetarianism, because it must be the IN thing and it will go away although it hasn't since I met her 10 years ago .... **sigh** that is a story for another time.

Anyway, back to the dinner, she bought me a frozen veggie lasagna. Stouffer's and not too bad but I just had this on Thanksgiving. So, I opted for having both the sweet potatoes and the black bottom mini cupcake and no lasagna only steamed veggies. Much to her chagrin! But I ate lasagna for the next 4 days. emoticon

So imagine my surprise this morning when I got out of bed confronted that doggone scale and it showed me 220. I was perplexed and then suddenly it hit me .... emoticon .... it was the bowl of Black Cherry chocolate chip ice cream that I ate last night.

Well, who knew that Breyer's Black Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream was the key to weight loss. Ok, probably not but hey, I can dream can't I?

    Navigating the Holidays isn't always easy. I had been sure that my "pigging out" surely would have let to weight gain especially since I no longer had time to exercise.

    Lo and behold, I had dropped 2lbs as well.

    Hey, if it works, keep going until it doesn't! And then maybe drink a couple extra glasses of water as a counteraction.

    I'm willing to try it! I'll have to add Breyer's Black Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream to my shopping list. I wonder if Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia would have the same desired effects???!!!

    I've been in the same "visitor trying to be gracious when confronted by unusual BUT it's vegetarian food choices by considerate hostesses" boat. I guess there are a LOT of patty shaped foods in the grocer freezer section!

    Love the idea that ice cream maybe the key. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy. Sorry you ate days of veggie lasagna but I'm sure there are worse things. Keep on pushing, you are worth it and can do it.

    I'm with you, dreaming about the ice cream! What is it with the meat eaters that they just can't wrap their heads around the no meat thing. My poor son would starve every time we go to my mother-in-law's house for a big celebration, not a vegetable in sight. I bring him tofu.... emoticon
