penalty for binging...

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Well I was right - I skipped my weekly weigh-in because of my bottomless pit binging weekend and sure eneough - I am up 3 lbs.... I refuse to add it to my weight loss progress ticker - because I truly want to be my goal weight - so this 3 lb penalty is a wake-up call. I wish I could drop it as fast as I put it on .....but then losing weight would be easy wouldn't it?

Past the lips for a second - sugar high - for a second - extra lbs for probably a month - is it worth it? I am writing this to get the guilt out of my head and move on and also so I remember this to hopefully stop before it becomes a huge gain ever again.

STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP - food doesn't do what you want it to do - momentary pleasure just isn't worth it....

If I could kick myself right now I would....
The fact that I am a member of Spark tho - has helped me bigtime - there was a time that a weekend like that would just give me permission to say forget it.... Now it truly is different - a bump - big one mind you - but a bump that isn't going to be a mountain...

    you are not alone, I too have gained lately. I have been out of town too much and not making myself a priority to exercise.
    But not today, I just finished 30 mins on the elliptical trainer! So if I can get my fat butt moving I want you to do the same.
    Chill out, love yourself and remember you are worth it sister!

    I feel the same way sometimes, when it comes to the weight loss ticker, but you have to be honest not just with yourself, but your SP friends. I'm glad, though, that you are picking yourself up from this & that it's a wake up call. You can get back on track!!! :)
