Red face I got jumped in an alley by a burger(contains food porn)

So I'm feeling better after this stomach flu. I called off daycare today just to make sure I'm over being contagious. Having the flu couldn't have come at a better time because...

holy mother of all heck was I off plan Friday and Saturday. I indulged. Way too much. I ate things that were not good for me. I DRANK things that were not good for me. A lot of things.

We went out for dinner Friday night to celebrate the end of a very successful dance festival week. We went to Red Robin's. I WENT with the INTENTION of eating whatever the heck I wanted. And so I did. Had some onion rings, a large bbq chicken burger and lots of homestyle fries. And ranch dressing. Lots of ranch dressing.

So then... Saturday we get invited out to dinner... AGAIN and end up going to Pizza hut. Now... I only ate three slices... and a few fries BUT DRANK A MILKSHAKE. Wtheck!!!! And then had some jelly beans... and a bit of chocolate... and some cheese... *nibble nibble* I was like a freaking mouse I tell ya. Little bits of lots of "bad" things.

Now did I feel guilty? Well... kinda. I mean life gets like this sometimes and you can beat yourself up or just move on. So I moved on. Sunday... totally on plan. Monday and Tuesday didn't eat (flu) and today eating on modified sore tummy plan. My weight this morning? 201... sigh. HOWEVER I got my period on Sunday SO I know I'm actually still below 200/

But honestly? I deserved that sodium gain. And it was not worth it. But I've moved on. And... it was kinda fun in a sick sort of way to eat like I used to. One difference? I would have eaten the WHOLE pizza. A WHOLE bag of jelly beans. A WHOLE CHOCOLATE BAR (or three...) and wow... I didn't. And then I got back on plan. And I beat the sugar monster craving beast by having the flu (thank doG for the flu.)

So that's my update.

And I'm sticking to it

Cfmama-look at the positive side; even if you were off plan, you did have some power and did not eat the whole bag of candy or the whole pizza. Pick up and start again! Today is a new day...a new beginning!

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Your "indiscretion" if you ask me, it came at the end of a challenging, though exciting week. You were in a celebratory mood - and you decided to "cut loose" a little bit. With the full intention of NOT letting it linger.

The "off" eating is a rare, once in a blue moon occurrence. The good, healthy eating - that is the LARGE majority of your days now. It's no secret per se'. It's dedication and devotion. It's knowing what you want. It's a certain conviction. It's important to you. So you do it. To NOT do it - that would be ludicrous (at this point).

Healthy eating - the norm; the unhealthy eating - the rarity (the rare, rarity that is ).

Yup babe, you hit the secret - good or bad, as long as we never give up, we can never lose this battle! Every meal and choice is another blessed chance to do better! I have had off plan days, and more than you, but I STILL log the food, still weigh in, and am still accountable to myself every meal.

That is the only reason I can point to why a lifelong obese woman (moi) has lost weight, kept it off, and is reliably plugging away toward her goal. We are our own story, we make our ending, and I refuse to have this end with anything but a healthy and full life - weight won't give me that!


All you can do is move forward, and I am SO excited to watch you do it

Food porn...too funny! Yay that you're feeling better and you deserve a big ol' congrats for hanging in there. It's so interesting how our perspectives change on this weight loss journey. Back in the day indulging meant eating 3000+ calories (in one sitting) nowadays it's having a slice of pizza or piece of candy. Being off plan isn't the greatest but you managed to keep it reasonable and you didn't push the limits.

I'm with you. It doesn't matter what stupid **** I get up to, in a very short amount of time I'm back on plan. And I really think my downfall in the past has been the "well, I've ruined that eating plan so I might as well keep on with the crap" attitude. I don't even feel guilty anymore. I yam what I yam and if a Hostess cupcake needs to be eaten, I'm woman enough for the job. But then... right back on plan. I'm not a perfect mom or a perfect wife or a perfect nurse, so I'm probably not going to ever be a perfect eater. I am a darn good mom and a darn good nurse and - let's face it - a darn-near perfect wife (hee hee hee) so now I'm a darn good eater.

I didn't enjoy the jelly beans, chocolate or shake but I REALLY REALLY enjoyed that burger. I think I need to make burgers at home more often!!!
