My December weight loss journey begins, and as is custom for Saturdays, I start things off by weighing in. So, what do the scales say? I weighed in at 325.6 pounds, only a 0.6 pound loss from last week, but it could have been worse.
So, where did I go wrong?
Carryover from Thanksgiving.
When I got up last Saturday, my plan had been to just eat a light breakfast, which is my normal routine now for Saturdays, after which I would indulge in leftover Thanksgiving foods — turkey, rice, turkey gravy, hot buttered rolls, salad, and of course, pumpkin pie with Cool Whip.
Sadly, seeing the food there, I decided that I didn’t want to wait until lunch to indulge, but would eat my carb meal (as part of the Carb Addicts Diet portion of my weight loss scheme) for breakfast instead.
All was well until around three or so in the afternoon. I’d planned to have some carb-free meal, but I kept thinking, “I never did get the ‘go back for a second round’ aspect when I had Thanksgiving last Thursday. I really, REALLY want to do that.” So, with a very terrible, “who cares” attitude, I piled food on my plate and scarfed, with extra pie to boot.
I can’t even imagine how many calories I sucked down Saturday, but it wasn’t pretty. I did check the scales a couple of days later and saw a nearly five pound pickup. ^_^; So I am thankful that in the end, I still lost weight for the week, even if only a small amount.
As an aside, I didn’t have that kind of failing today, but it was a junk food kind of day. The rest of the week, I’ll have to be good.
