So Not Worth It!!
Friday, October 03, 2014
Last weekend, hubby and I went out of town to spend the weekend with his father and step-mom. We make that trip 2 or 3 times a year, since they are less than 200 miles away. It was a fun weekend. The downside is that they took us to all the restaurants they normally take us to, and all the triggers kicked in and I ended up "taking the weekend off." I'm still paying for my indulgence.
Late last week, I had broken through the dreaded 300 lb. mark, landing at 298.5. I was excited as all get out, having hit my first major goal. I came back from the weekend with the scale reading 302.8. Surely, it was just water weight, right? Some of it, yes, but not all. As of this morning, the scale reads 300.4. I am so frustrated right now.
For the last couple of months, I have been focusing on eating "real food." I've been avoiding processed and refined foods and have felt wonderful. The pounds have been melting away. I haven't even been tracking calories, just eating real, natural food. I spent 3 days eating like the old me, and discovered that the food didn't taste that great, I felt terrible physically and emotionally, and I am still fighting to re-attain the goal I had just barely reached.
Though I am paying hard for this lesson, it is definitely a lesson learned. Never again. It was totally not worth it.
