Default Bad night!

I have to come clean - yesterday was my birthday and I had leftover cake today, as well as junk at a church function and Taco Bell to top it off. I overate by 2000 calories, if I had to put a number on it.

I'm moving on, it's over now, but I needed to public ally own up and confess my laziness. I need to lose more, that requires more discline and less temporary gratification. I can do it, now it is time to enact it!

Taco Bell, though tasty, should not hold this kind of power over me. Breakfast tomorrow is on plan as usual.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!

I hope this is just a one time thing but I seem to remember a post or two about moderate level of struggling going back a couple of months.

You are back on the wagon so just tighten that seat belt to stay there.

You can do it!

You need to forgive yourself for eating extra. Sometimes we have a bad day. Hop right back on your plan and you will be fine.

We can never change the past or even worry about what's over with. You have today to work on.

Think of it this way - if you overate by 2100 calories on one day of the week, it only raises your average cal per day by 300 calories. As long as you were eating on plan the rest of the week, it isn't that big a deal. It isn't even one pound. You could work it off in the gym with four extra workouts (assuming 500 cal workouts). You can't make a habit of it, but as an isolated incident, it isn't that big a deal.

And, at least for me, if it was higher fat content food that you don't normally eat, and you ate it all in a short time period, odds are your body didn't absorb all of it anyway.

Don't beat yourself up about this!

500 calorie workouts? You're funny

I leave the house twice a week for church, otherwise I work out at home, when my kids are napping. But I absolutely plan on burning them off (however slowly) and staying down on you food choices.

DixC - I was indeed struggling about two months ago and managed to gt back on track and lose a few more pounds. This is just more of the same. My anniversary is on May 6th, then Mother's Day, then my birthday on the 12th, so it is a huge block of celebratory eating that I will be glad to end! It is fun, but every year I am eager to get back on track.

I rarely ask for public accountability, it seemed like a useful tool for today. Thanks so much everyone!

These have been my weights the past two weeks. I figure they will bump up a little from this, but I doubt they'll stay as high as this morning

April 30: um.... 198 something?

1:------
2: 197.6
3: 198.6
4: 197.4
5: 198.4
6: 199.0
7: 198.0
8: ------
9: 196.8
10: 196.6
11: 196.4
12: 197.2
13: ------
14: 201.2


As I mentioned on my blog, even when struggling with the scale I have to keep things in perspective. I have lost over 60 pounds and 40 inches, my wedding dress falls off my body, and I am healthier and happier than I have been in years. Good eating or bad, as long as I don't quit and not be accountable to my food and weight journals, I'll be just fine

Happy belated birthday! The one time thing won't hurt you. Back to plan and you are fine. My problem with days like that is that it makes it easier for me to go off plan again. It is great that you are going right back on plan today!

Don't fret about it. Just put it behind you and move on! It's when you start seeing yourself as a failure that you risk becoming one.

Thanks guys! Yesterday was also terrible, and yet it wasn't. We had lunch at Red Robin and one of my presents was going to a chocolaTe store afterward. My entire day consisted of chocolate and a burger!

The victory part? It was calorically dense, and I actually still stayed within my daily tally, as best I can tell! I do NOT make a habit of eating like that, but that I ate junky food and didn't overindulge and break the budget is actually a big deal, so I am fairly proud of myself. Despite the carbs and salt, I weighed in at 199.8 today, which is still up (I definitely gained over the past two weeks) but in a range that is under control and going to come back off.

I've been doing this for almost three years. It isn't smooth sailing, far from it, but even with CRAZY food days like yesterday we can still continue on and do just fine. Accountability and persistence is absolutely key.

And breakfast yesterday? Absolutely on plan
