How many of you have looked at the the morning after a happy night out on the town with friends? Sure, all of us have done that. It's UP!!!
Now suppose there are a whole bunch of happy events/memories taking place over a certain area of time. Like planning your daughter's wedding. Here we go! Shopping for a dress (lunch afterward) checking out caterers (lunch afterward) meeting with bridesmaids (lunch served) and...... well, no matter what the occasion, believe me, FOOD is always there, right in the forefront! It's America and it's how we live!
I don't know about you, but I find it truly disappointing, disgusting and un-motivating to have "one night of fun" only to see the next morning that I have gained a pound of weight. On in a night = off in a week. At least that's my experience.
I love those happy events and memories as much as the next person; but can't live with the disappointing results! What to do??? Any suggestions?
Do the best you can when eating out and enjoy your time together... I get frustrated when we have too many events and the weight starts to pile on but most times there is a quiet time afterwards to re-group. Go with the flow for now and do the best you can! (Cut out the wheat!) Hmm... your DD doesn't want to gain weight just before her wedding either so maybe together you can come up with good places to eat or pack a picnic :)
Eve, I now you are one who likes to weigh daily and if you don't, keep a journal of those numbers. Then check how the numbers look a week apart. It'll give you , maybe a better perspective???? Couldn't hurt. Enjoy those memory making outings! We're not kids any more, so they are bound to show here and there, but if you're "back in the saddle" after a nice evening out ( or afternoon), the weekly number should show you how it all evens right back out! Don't sweat the small stuff, my friend!! (It's all small stuff! ) hehe Love ya!! (((HUGS))) 949 days ago
There is only one way...sadly, you can celebrate, but make better food choices, not always easy, when everyone else is indulging in the "good" stuff, but for your health & weight, it is worth the sacrifice....
Eat less rest of the day since you know you will be eating out. Get in a little extra exercise. Drink extra water. Don't weigh in the next day. Know that one bad weigh in doesn't define you, it is just a number. 950 days ago
My solution has always been to not weigh myself the next morning, I think once a week is plenty. I don't understand it either though, your experience of "On in a night = off in a week" sure applies to me too! 950 days ago
