pizza and weight loss

Saturday, October 27, 2012

I have been really very motivated for about 2 weeks. I have lost about 6 pounds, and am happy with that. Today, I am stressing about a big exam tuesday, and running around doing errands with the kids, and POW it's lunchtime, and POW the kids want pizza, and I walked in the pizza shop thinking I'd just get a drink and eat something healthier when we got home, and I ATE 2 BIG SLICES OF PIZZA. Seriously, 2 HUGE slices. I probably wouldn't be so mad at myself with one, but really, I did not, do not need TWO! Not sure where the willpower went...but it went. Feeling pretty gross right about now, and more than a little disappointed with myself. I am right about to break into the 180s, and I am sure I blew that for a day or 2.
The good news is that I still have a shot at staying in my ranges for the day. This is what I keep telling myself. That a weight loss plan has some wiggle room for pizza or ice cream or anything else, as long as I stay in range, and don't make junk food a habit. THis is a distance race, after all, not a sprint...and I need to hang in there and keep chipping away at this weight. So, here's to not allowing my pizza slip to turn into a day where I say, "ahh, to hell with it, i already messed up today..." I WILL STAY IN RANGE TODAY (albeit barely:) and do better tomorrow

    Pizza always trips me up too. How are you losing 6lbs in 2 weeks?! I need to know your secrets. Hope you see the 180s soon. I was on the verge of the 160s and then spent the weekend COMPLETELY self-sabotaging. So I feel your pain.

    That's how it goes. Maybe you simply got too hungry. If the body is in survival mode, it's very hard to dig in your heals and take it home to eat a salad! :)
    It will happen like this now and then. Chalk it up as '\experience'.
    Indeed, don't let it tempt you to continue overeating. Sounds like you've been doing well!
