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.
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 ....
.... 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?
