Wednesday Weigh In

Down 1.5. That means I have 3 left to go from the 7 I gained.
Never ceases to amaze me how you can put the weight on virtually over night but the coming off part...

No matter, I'm finding my way back piece by piece.
That being said, I had to make a difficult decision tonight. A bunch of the girls were meeting at the local pizza place to hang out and watch the Bruins game.  I was excited to go but when I really sat down and thought about it, I thought it would be best to sit this one out. 

Seeing as I can't drink (I'm allergic to alcohol -or to something in my diet and alcohol makes it worse) and I really can't afford the calories of pizza and bar food, I thought it best to stay home. I'm finally feeling like I am getting back into some sort of a groove. Pizza is one food I have a really, really hard time saying "no" to. It's just best to pass it up for right now. 

It's OK. It's not always like this. When I have a few weeks of steady weight loss and am feeling strong and confident, I know I will be able to handle nights like tonight.  I don't believe this journey is about secluding myself from social situations. I don't believe this journey is about deprivation. I just have to recognize when I know I will go overboard and when I can just have a taste and be OK. Tonight, unfortunately, isn't one of those nights.   Who knows what tomorrow will bring.


  1. Good move staying away from that stuff, especially if you know you're going to end up eating a bunch if you would have gone. I know personally I would end up over eating if I found myself in a place like that. When you are better mentally prepared for that kind of challenge you will be able to show that pizza who the boss is.

  2. Hi Jenn! Well, I agree with JD about all he said. Also, if you have a clear vision for yourself and eating high-cal pizza doesn't fit into that vision, then you don't do it. And I bet you are WAY happier with yourself, down inside, for saying no. That very act is probably the reason why your weight is going back down.

  3. Jenn, I can't add much more than what JD and Marion already did, but it appears pizza was kind of on our agenda today. It will ber for me again Friday too. But you won here - you made the right call which is excellent. Congrats on the loss too! :)
