Crap, I don't want to write this post, lol. I really don't, but here it goes....
Saturday I did fantastic. I ate at home....we were in Six Flags for 5 hours and I ate NOTHING. Dwayne had a barbecue brisket sandwich and curly fries while we were there. I ate NOTHING. So very proud of that. And got all my water in.
Sunday I croaked. I ate the Chinese food, even though I had eaten before I left the house. The sights and smells once I got in the restaurant and fixed plates for the kids proved to be too much. Yeah...I suck. I guess I could be happy that I only ate 1 plate, instead of the 2 or 3 I used to eat at a Chinese buffet...or be happy that I had water instead of Coke...but no....I'm not happy.
I am happy though that I got one out of the two days right. That is an improvement from previous weekends, and I'm happy that I concentrated on my water and drank all I was supposed to each day.
I lost nothing the first week of Allan's Challenge. I started at 247 lbs last Monday, and I'm 247 this morning. For the record, I was 245 yesterday morning....pre-Chinese food. That's actually up 1 lb. from the 244 I was last Friday....but....Mother Nature showed up Friday night and I can't get my ring off my finger if that tells you anything about my bloating issues.
I'm not dumping the challenge....I'm staying on board. Maintaining is always better than gaining....and each day is a chance to make better choices than the day (weekend) before. The Halloween candy was not an issue for me, as candy rarely is. We had a bowl of Butterfingers and Reese's....1 bag each....we got about 25 kids last night....so there were only 3 pieces of candy left. I'm sure Dwayne will eat them in the next day or two. No major temptation for me, as I bought candy that is nowhere near my favorite kind. There are no Snickers in my house for a reason.
I'm going to keep working on this weekend thing. I told Dwayne I am not going anywhere next weekend....I'm too dang tired this morning, and I'm too dang fat. I'm staying at home where it's calorie-friendly and restful next weekend. Have a great day friends. :)
