I rocked the first week. So much that WW took a point away from my daily intake because I had lost a big number. Initially that made me furious, but I came to terms with it. LOL
Anne, my cousin, and I have been providing each other with great moral support. Sometimes we have to make fun of ourselves to get the point across.
What happened with week two you ask? Oh yeah. I gained. :-(
Why did I gain? Oh because I indulged too much. Too much. On Tuesday of last week, I had a break down. I just had to have pizza. Not the healthy pizza I mentioned yesterday either. I wanted cheesy, greasy, to die for pizza. Because this program is not built to take away your favorite foods, I decided a little indulgence was OK. As soon as the box was in my hands, I was happy. I could not wait to sit down and eat as slowly as I could to savor the taste and make "cheating" worth it. An hour later? I was in pain. My stomach was bloated. My stomach begged me to not put anything else in it. Eating like a pig back fired on me. I decided then and there, I could not do it again.
Enter that beautiful long weekend in Maryland skiing with friends. No one else on the trip was dieting. No was else was watching what they were eating. So I decided I would be conscientious of the program and do my best to follow. I packed my little snacks already counted out in portions. I brought fruit. I brought smoothies. I brought everything but meals. Friday I did great--Saturday, not so much. Buffalo wings, dips, crackers, chips--junk food galore. This wasn't much will power present in my aching body to say no. Again, I felt like crap afterwards. Saturday night I was exhausted and went to bed with a belly ache again. You would have thought I would have learned my lesson from the pizza extravaganza. I even hurt on Sunday.
Monday morning weigh in happens at 5:45am and I was not shocked to see that I had gained a pound. The little message popped up on my phone trying to console me--saying it was alright to gain and part of the learning process. Blah Blah Blah. They gave me my freaking point back too. So how alright does that make it look? Anyways, I am back on track--eating within my point range and watching my portions. I threw caution to the wind and learned the hard way. Next week I am hopeful for a negative result. I am even OK with me taking a point away from me if it means I lose.
