I'm not perfect. No one is and I certainly am not. I gained this week, 2.8 pounds but it is ok. Before I even went to my WW meeting tonight, I knew I had gained because I had already weighed myself this morning on my scale at home like I always do. I will be honest with you and tell you that I definitely overate this weekend. Not only did I overeat, I overate food that was NOT good for me.
Raspberry Amaretto Cake from Main Street Cafe + birthday cake + handful of chips + 6 pigs in a blanket + ice cream + brownies + peanut butter pie + Shealy's BBQ + banana pudding= Weight gain this week
I was honest with myself and I knew that I would gain this weekend. I was not worried about counting calories this weekend and it showed. I have read several blogs of people who are losing weight and almost all of them have incorporated a "cheat" day or some type of system. I have gone 5 months without a "cheat" day so I guess it was much needed. The scary part though was how quickly I found myself going back to my previous habits. It was definitely a nice wake up call. I still have issues with sweets and overeating that I need to continue to address. This is very good information for me because it made me realize that I still have a very long way to go to make sure I drop the weight AND maintain it once I get to my goal weight.
I have decided to journal my food daily this week on my blog to keep myself accountable. Check out my food log below. I am trying to get back to detoxing myself from sugars since I went overboard this weekend.
Remember--don't let one week, one weigh-in mess up your weightloss journey. I am thankful to learn that I wasn't upset with myself tonight but I realized what I could do to myself if I fall off the wagon and I can take the 2.8 pounds off that I gained this week. :)
