Congradulations on making your first goal kifli
are you on track to be 130lb by your 31st birthday?
Let make this thread active ladies and make it work for us
Here's what happened to me the past couple of weeks. I got down to 136, then a couple of days later 135.6, then a couple of days later, 134.5!!!!! I was ECSTATIC! LOVE that number! So at that point, I was thinking, I'm totally going to do this! That was a week and a day ago. THEN... I had a hiccup. I'm on a strict gluten free and dairy free diet, and I eat very little refined sugar. That is all for health/ medical reasons, not weight loss. I've been doing it for 5 months without intentionally going off. But last Sunday, we were out with the kids, and everyone was whiney. It was like 100 degrees (Florida), I was starving, they were starving, and the closest thing was a Shoney's. We went in and I noticed eggs, bacon and grits on the breakfast bar, as well as some grilled peppers and mushrooms. I thought, "ok, well there's a chance of cross-contamination, but I should be alright." I'm not actually allergic, so if I got some gluten, I would feel sick, but not like a celiac. I skipped TONS of delicious stuff that I know I can't eat- biscuits, French toast sticks, etc. I ate eggs, bacon, grits, peppers, mushrooms. As I sat down with my plate, I realized that everything was SWIMMING in butter. Butter is dairy. I don't eat dairy. Immediately, I knew I was going to be sick later. But I also knew I had to eat, my kids were strapped in their seats eating and there were no better options on the menu. Plus the service SUCKED. Like, really sucked. Like, we didn't get drinks until we were almost done eating. Meal ended up being free, but I would have paid to NOT eat it if I could go back.
Long story short, I woke up the next day in debilitating pain and up 4.5 pounds!!!!!!! I drank water all week, scarfed greens, etc. and dropped all but two pounds, which leaves me where I started: 136lbs.
UGH. So stupid and frustrating.
If I was going to cheat, I would eat ice cream or pizza, not runny eggs from a nasty buffet! Lol
