I've Learned My Lesson

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

I worked hard last week and lost an incredible 4.2 pounds, but after a weekend of free eating and no exercise, I gained three pounds back. I've exercised hard this week and watched my eating and three days later, I'm still up .4 pounds.

I'm guessing that one pound of my weight gain was real weight and the other two were water weight. I really hoped I'd have canceled out the gain my now, but I haven't. The food I pigged out on wasn't even that good. But I find that I eat more in social settings and I certainly did that last weekend. So, instead of making progress, I'm having to undo a stupid gain that shouldn't have happened in the first place.

Well, I'd like to think that I have learned my lesson. My son's birthday is Friday and we're going to have his party on Friday night. He's having a sleepover with pizza and ice cream cake and fruit punch and video games and movies and popcorn. I am going to try to be moderate. Wish me luck and a strong resolve to do what I know to do.

    We all hate when this happens and believe me it happens too much, especially when taking care of small children.

    Can you make a healthier pizza for you? Possibly a WW pizza and WW desert cake. Then you can be eating the same food and not have worries. Have you ever tried the diet cola cake which gives you a big portion but is low in calories? Google diet cola cake to find it on Gina's WW recipies. It is dense cake and I top with diet cool whip for me & frosting for hubby emoticon
