2020 Weight Loss For 20200221
Time for the weekly weight check-in. Friday’s weight had me at 304.0 pounds. That’s a 0.4 pound loss on the previous week. I’m kinda disappointed after having a good week after the carb splurge day.
The “Perils” of Weight Loss
One of the “perils” of losing weight is the oddities that can happen during weight loss. I’ve mentioned this before, and no doubt I’ll mention it again, but when losing weight, one can have a good week on eating right and not lose weight. And other times, one can have a bad week of eating wrong and still lose weight. For someone like me, who has an analytical mind, it frustrates me to no end.
I admit, that always plays havoc with my mental state. On one hand, if I’m naughty but still lose weight, I’m tempted to be naughty. On the other hand, if I am good but don’t lose the weight I expected, I tend to just go, “I’m going to enjoy myself, ’cause I feel bummed for not losing the weight I thought I would. Sadly, despite knowing these pitfalls, I often fall into them, as happened this weekend.
For my Friday carb splurge, I went to Popeye’s. The idea was that I would get a restock of my buttermilk biscuits for the freezer. Unfortunately, although they charged me for the extra dozen biscuits, they didn’t provide them. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper. However, in addition to making this mistake in their favor, they made a second mistake in my favor. The meal I ordered came with nine spicy chicken tenders. They have me those nine plus four regular tenders. So that mitigated my anger somewhat. But when I tried to call the restaurant, the phone just went to a generic answering machine. 😑
That aside, in addition to the tenders, I scored some of their mashed potatoes, Cajun rice, and a red velvet cake.
Friday night, I ended up collapsing and making a pot of tuna-mac. I know I shouldn’t have, but on one hand, I had my negative attitude about my limited weight loss. And I also wanted to do a food celebration after a six-hour stream that allowed me to finish the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game.
Bonus Carb Saturday
I wasn’t feeling the greatest Saturday (and that remains true as I write this now). So after some debate, I decided I wanted to make hamburger steaks, grits, and waffle fries. The grits are what I fancied most for some reason, and they were great. I just wish I had made more.
Since I was so bad this weekend, I’m pretty sure I’ll be skipping carbs next weekend. Well, it is a fair trade-off right?
