I have done awesome on this diet/lifestyle change! I have done way better than I expected!
Even hitting the 20lb loss mark last week. Yay me.
Last Saturday night I CHOSE to cheat. Not temptation indulgence but chose that I wanted something specific to eat. And I did.
Baked potato loaded (my healthy choice was I didn’t double the butter or sour cream like I usually would and I did not eat the skin which is usually my favorite part,) bread (healthy choice was not indulging on that last piece,) sweet tea!
I savored every bite! Every bite was cherished. It was delicious. It didn’t make me sick either which surprised me.
No guilt! I loved it.
Sunday came along and damn if I don’t give into a burger. I didn’t make it a double and I didn’t supersize it! Didn’t even add the bacon.
Okay a little guilt but I will get back on plan on Monday.
And I did. Monday morning I stepped on the scales and my heart sank. Up 2+ pounds. 177.8. So much for the 20lb loss.
Back on the plan strictly!
Guess what? Today I stepped on those unforgiving and tattletale scales…
I am back on track.
Yes it was worth it for a couple reasons.
1. The food was enjoyable. (One of the reasons I started this plan was to improve my relationship with food!)
2. I consciously made better choices. Maybe not super healthy choices, but 50% better than I used to!
3. It amazes me how much weight those two meals added to the scales.
4. This plan really works to get the weight off.
So all in all I am pretty excited.
Oh and I did not even dip into the Halloween candy!!!
