I am curious about our recent choices. If you don't mind sharing what good choice you made recently for your weight loss journey and a confession. Everyone is bound to make some uh ohs and most important is acknowledge them and forgive yourself for it. For me my good choice was once again I forgot them gym closes on the weekend(i forget every single week!) I wasd feeling worn out and wanted to sleep, but I promised I would work out today, so I went to the high school and did 2 powerwalking miles on the track. my uh oh was i was hungry and me and my mom ate mexican. beans, guacamole, and best of all chimichangas. first time i had it and it was devilishily goood!

Hey, I like this idea! OMG, Mexican food- soooo soo good! I am lucky that no one in my life likes it so I have to go out of my way to find a day that I'm alone to eat it, or I'd be craving it far more than I do. Good for you for exercising even after the gym was closed. I know how tempting it is to use that as an excuse not to exercise, but you put in the work!

My good- hmm. I think I am getting a little better at avoiding bad situations. Recently I got a flat tire and I immediately pulled into the next parking lot so I wouldn't be blocking traffic. what do you know, it's Bob Evans parking lot! I don't even like that place that much but I had just gone grocery shopping after work and all I wanted to do was go home, get in my PJs, and eat dinner. And now I was stuck there with a damn flat tire and I was cold and cranky and tired and wanted some comfort food. Somehow I resisted, because it wasn't important enough for me to blow my whole day.

The bad- it was our anniversary this weekend and we went to the casino. I ate at a buffet and drank far too much and didn't limit myself at all in anything. I said ahead of time that I wouldn't, it was only one day, but I feel guilty about it. Mostly because of my crazy water retention even today. And then yesterday I remained unmotivated and lazy and still didn't do too well. Bah. Weekends have been super hard for me.

Great idea for a thread!

I was in the supermarket with my husband on saturday night and we were buying something nice for dinner, because my son was staying at my parents and we hadnt planned to go out. so we were looking around at the desserts and i couldnt decide what to buy. I realised that if i couldnt decide what i wanted, then i didnt want anything. so i left the aisle empty handed.

my confession is that i havent exercised in about 3 weeks and i know it is having a very negative effect on my weight loss. i come up with every excuse in the book not to go for my walk or not to put on the dvd.

Friday I was stressing out about car repairs and anxious about making the right decisions regarding it. I had myself talked into ordering a pizza but I decided to cook the chicken I had defrosted.

Still feeling anxious and stressed, I had 2 TB of sugary RF peanut butter. Still accounted for in my WW points but I succumbed to one of my go-to comfort foods.:o
