Proud of holding even
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Last weekend was the second of my three wedding receptions, and we had family and friends in from out of town. We ate out almost every meal, and of course the h'ors derves that we served at the reception weren't exactly health food. Oh, and of course there's the cake. And the restaurant desserts. Ugh.
BUT I did the best I could. I stuck to my plan all week, and was reasonably careful at the restaurants on the weekend. I limited my dessert intake despite my husband's best efforts.
Yesterday was the moment of truth: weigh in. And, shockingly, I stayed dead even. I didn't gain an ounce! I didn't lose either, but I'm still really proud of myself for just holding even. Sometimes the best you can do is just tread water, and last weekend was one of those times. I'm really proud of myself for doing that.
