Salt oh the salt!


Saturday, January 12, 2013

First of all, I want to thank those that commented on my paintings. You all were just too kind! Really made me feel like continuing to paint.

So, I got back on track yesterday after the "pig out" hamburger and fries on Thursday. I always find it so interesting how long it takes to lose the "scale weight" after eating out with reckless abandonment. It's no wonder that one would continue to put weight on if eating like that at every meal. With me, I get right back to plan and eat my roughly 1200 calories which is "normal" eating for me but it still takes several days to lose the splurge weight. As you all know this is all part of my maintenance plan.....to eat normal 1200 calories and get a little under goal weight and then I can splurge with DH. It just is frustrating to see the scale increase even if it's only another half pound after a day of "good" eating......oh well, I will continue on and know that it will come off.
I hope all my sparks buddies are having a great day. Make it a great week end.
Sallie

    Sallie, don't forget there are other ways of measuring your body's healthy weight. How are your clothes fitting?

    I agree that it is frustrating when the scale goes up and you were doing everything right and thought it would be down. Nonetheless, the thing is to just keep doing good and eventually it will pay off. I have to tell myself that frequently.

So glad that the comments encouraged you to keep painting. You definitely should. And I'm sure that you can work your painting into your healthy lifestyle far easier than the class fit into it!

    we all need to splurge now and then...but the key is to get back to "normal" eating as quickly as possible...sounds like you're doing it right!

    Good for you getting back on track right away. A hamburger and fries absolutely has no appeal what so ever to me now. It used to be a staple in our diet as kids when Mom would take us to mcDonald's for a treat -today its my brother's favorite eating place, but it makes me gag at the thought of going there :P If I am going to splurge it will be Asian or pasta, but yes, oh that salt gain!!
Enjoy your weekend!

    Salt AND sugar . . . evil, vile, nasty . . . to the body (even though they taste good! DANG IT !) I'm with you. Always like to stay a little under maintenance weight just in case.

HUGS and continue that painting. You are talented.

    Your paintings were beautiful, it would be a shame not to continue painting, you have such talent!
Salt bloat takes a few days but it will go!

    Yes! The salt is the thing I don't like, either! It can add upto 3 # for me! Then 2 days being TOTALLY salt free to get back to normal! I wish restaurants would ask if we want it at all!

Have a great weekend!

    You really should continue to paint. I would love to have any one of those paintings in my house!

I think it's great that you can have a splurge now and again, and then get back to your goal weight. That's what we all hope to achieve one day and you are a constant inspiration.

Have a lovely day.
