... so I am up 5/10 = 1/2 pound from yesterday! No problem!! Today is another day.

I write this for others struggling to lose a pound. I am human and I make poor choices sometimes. But I cannot live without food and temptations are going to be coming at me for the rest of my life. The Vegetable Sticks are similar to Fish Sticks in that they might be fried, or baked, but there was obviously something holding them together and that was fattening, lol. But oh so tasty! And as my spark-buddies on my last blog pointed out, it was veggies, heheheh. I chose them because I knew the Tilapia is so low in calories!

I looked in the mirror this morning after weighing and you know what? I am still 15 lbs lower than I ever hoped to be.

Yes, I still have loose skin but as DH pointed out (wanted to slap and hug him at the same time) it didn't look any better when the skin was full of fat!

Another day dawns...

(I didn't want to post it but those Vegetable Sticks might have been over 800 calories! But they still tasted good.)

For Gini, these are not in my house. They were an option in the hospital cafeteria and really shouldn't be on the dinner bar. Believe me, I had no idea each stick would be 100-125 calories and never more will they grace my plate. But now you know why I was berating myself a bit. Still ok, we are allowed to make poor choices once in a while.

    OK YOU. Those aren't veggie sticks , they're artery busters and big butt adders. No more of those , ever!! Why were they in your house? Here I was feeling so proud of you for being soooo good and worrying about veggie sticks. You tricked me. Fool me once.....LOL

    Your day seems to have leveled out after a shakey start. Good reasoning though. Temptation will always be there. You make so many good choices that a little sidestep Won't feel like more than a whisper. Carry on my friend. You are rockin'!!!!!

    i am worried about loose skin... i can already see it in my thighs and tummy... but like your insightful DH said, it could be worse!

    i think you may be reading too much into that 1/2 lb- remember your body weight fluctuates all the time... and i don't think 800 calories can make you gain a 1/2 lb considering there are 3500 calories in a lb and you would have had to have a calorie deficit of -1750 calories :-) i would guess that it could attributed to retaining water if those veggie stick were high in sodium.

    Thanks for the chuckle on the loose skin. On the highway mear my home is a sign that says - modern lipo - finishes what dieting can't. Now I will think of you every time I pass it. My skin is loose but it is better than having it filled with fat.
    I wouldn't worry about .5 pounds. You'll have it off in no time. Hospital food is not the best but Ray will be home soon and things will settle down.

    You are very inspirational. I too struggle sometimes with poor choices, but this morning I actually made myself be good (lol).
