I have to be honest about this. I’ve been so excited and truly into the whole idea of the new Weight Watchers program…Ralph even commented that I was sitting there studying the book. It true…I was…I am… but I’m out of control! The fact that Christmas and New Year’s Day both fall on Saturday-my usual WW day didn’t initially bother me. I figured I might try to get to a another meeting during those two weeks. I didn’t think that I would need to make it mandatory! I was very scattered and not making good choices over the weekend. Monday, I got back on track and Tuesday was pretty good until Tuesday night. I’m blaming it on “Glee.” After eating my dinner, do I remember what? No, I don’t…a sure sign that there’s a problem. I remembered there was cream cheese in the frig and Ritz crackers in the cabinet. I won’t say how many I ate, but enough to be ashamed.
My plan was to go to the Wednesday night 5pm WW meeting where my leader Mary Lou is. Then during the day I started telling myself, “well, you could wait until next week, catch up then…you don’t really need to weigh in, you’re Lifetime…at goal…why add in that extra time.” Well I’m glad I did. It really did help. It didn’t actually help me last night. Knowing I was (maybe) going to the meeting, I hadn’t eaten much. Just some yummy oatmeal. I knew there’d be a difference in my weight because I usually weigh in at a morning class. I had gotten Ralph lunch at Subway and got myself a veggie sub to eat after the meeting. I had a small gain but that was understandable because of the day versus night thing. Well I came home, ate my veggie sub and then EVERYTHING else I could get my hands on.
So I’m up now, I’m drinking my coffee, I’ll be making breakfast soon and I WILL be on track and in control. Hey, at least I rode my exercise bike for 30 minutes…I get credit for that, don’t I?!?
I’ve got to be in control…tomorrow is a marathon of food. I think it will probably take 3 posts to get it all in! I have to figure out how to photograph breakfast without Gail & Alice thinking I’m crazy…I’ll have Ralph create a diversion!! Here’s to a better day!
