Cakes and cookies and Pies, Oh My! Ok ok ok, I haven't had pie...probably only because I'm not a big pan of pies. Oh, who am I kidding, I haven't had pies because there haven't been any readily available.
So those first few lines are rather telling. I fessed up and said I hadn't had pie....which means that I did have cake and cookies. Yup. I can't lie. And if you combine that with my most recent blog post....you know, the one where I said that I was going to get serious again (I believe I said right after I wipe the grease from my Burger King breakfast from my lips) about weight loss; well then you know that it didn't exactly happen. Well, I did wipe the grease from my lips, I just didn't get back on track. Oops
I knew the 'restart was looming'. I knew it all weekend. Yesterday I just ate with abandon, telling myself the whole time. "This is the last hurrah'. What a pitiful attitude. It was so pitiful that I had cheese and crackers for lunch (a lot of cheese...and a fair amount of crackers), some bread and butter and jelly, some oreos, and why yes, some apple cake (which was delicious by the way). For dinner I did Subway...I got full fatted chips Doritos actually, I was thinking the whole time, "it's my last chance before I straighten up my act, better enjoy it!" I actually ordered the cookies to round out my meal. Later in the evening I went ahead and had some ice cream. Yup, I did it up good.
But I had vowed that Monday was the day. So I got on the scales, with fear and trepidation. But I needed to know my 'starting' figure. What's the use of trying if I don't have a benchmark to show how far I've come. So I did it! It wasn't as bad as I thought. I am NOT back into that 5 pound vortex that I was stuck in for a while. I am not even on the edge of that vortex...so I am happy. :-)
Seriously contemplating rejoining weight watchers. They are offering the 'lose 10 pounds in 2 months' and get your money back" deal. Tempting. Haven't decided yet!
Here is to plowing through this excess weight once and for all!
