God! - Save me from the buffet

Thursday, July 04, 2013

I know that I cannot be left unsupervised around a buffet and I tried to avoid them nowadays. Today, we had a going away lunch for a colleague and my other pals suggested a buffet. I started well with a soup and lots of salad but I just went berserk with the dessert - I estimate that I consume a whopping 4000 cals in that one meal emoticon

Why can't I just control myself at the buffet????? To add to it, today was weigh-in day and I was more than a pound heavier. I am hoping it is the weight of the food that I stuffed myself with at lunch. Can it be?

    I agree that buffets are not good for those cutting back on calories! I see it, I eat it. I paid for the buffet so think I need to eat for three. Sometimes we need to avoid places that but us in too much temptation.

    I understand the power of the buffet. I am powerless over the Chinese buffet and don't get me started about Golden Corral. I'm sure you did better than you think you did. Good luck! Why is it there is always something to derail weight loss the day before weigh in? This happens to me all of the time.

    Oh how I sympathize with the pull of the buffet. Eating any amount over my calorie limit sends my weight up like your's. plan to eat well for two days and move a little each day. Tomorrow will be better. There is some perverse weight management law that says you always have serious opportunities for eating the day before your weigh in.
