The Struggle Continues

So, I went to my Weight Watchers meeting last night. I didn't lose. In fact, I gained 2 ounces. Most of me says that it's ok...it's only 2 ounces. But a small part of me feels like a failure.

Normally, after weigh in, I say it's my cheat time. Time to eat what I want...just for that evening. After leaving the meeting with a weight loss, I don't really want to cheat. I feel so good, that nothing tempts me. This time, I ate! All it took was 2 lousy ounces and I reverted back to bad habits. I had two taquitos with guacamole, beans and some chile cheese fries. Granted, I didn't eat as much as I would have prior to Weight Watchers but I felt terrible afterwards. I went to bed feeling sick, like I had a ton of bricks in my gut. Plus, my blood sugar was high!

After praying that I would be able to sleep and not be sick during the night, I told myself to remember this feeling. If I stop and think how it makes my body feel to eat junk, maybe I can stay away from it. And I don't mean that I'm never going to have fries again, but everything in moderation is a good plan.

Today is a new day. Today I will make it my goal to exercise and make healthy food choices. I can do it! :)


  1. Thinking of you. Those gain weeks are the worst. I even struggle on the weeks I didn't lose much. Stay strong!

  2. One day at a time. I weigh in on Fridays and unfortunately, I make my cheat time Friday, Saturday and Sunday :)

  3. Best of luck with your diet. I've learned that you can eat of cupful of anything you like as long as it's not more. lol
    Eat all the fruits and veggies you want and still lose weight as long as the rest of the meal is only a cup size.
    I have thyroid issues and I know how hard it is to loss weight. I'd like you to know I've won the battle. You can too!


    P.S. Do not eat or drink anything that has high fructose corn syrup in it. That will make you gain weight even if your eating less.
