Cheater cheater bread pudding eater

For the first time since January 8th, 2008...I cheated. I really went all out and cheated. I went to the Ram with a girlfriend from work and ate fajitas and bread pudding. It was soooo good and we shared and didn't eat the whole thing. Still, according to WW - it's 13 points. So, add that to the fajitas and the rest of the stuff I ate yesterday and a whopping 10 extra points were used. I did work out...but still....

I am not sure how today will end up - so far so good however. I'll have to wait until game time to see if those Sweet Maui onion chips will call my name.

I still feel good about the whole experience. I don't feel horrible about it - I planned the cheat meal and knew what I was going to eat. I went in knowing...and had some semblance of a plan. Plus, it's still three days away from weigh in. I can always resort to two-a-days to get down a few pounds.

We all have to cheat every once in awhile...it'll be fine. Have fun at the Superbowl party...

I think the important thing is that you went in with a plan and stuck with the plan, even if you were going over your points.

So much of overeating is emotional, reactionary, and out of control - like now, for instance, as I eat a bag of pita chips while cleaning the kitchen. They just happened to be left over from our party and bam! I get sucked in. That's very different scenario from going into an evening out, setting boundaries, and sticking to them.

For me, the hard part is not allowing the "cheat" to turn into a landslide once my cravings have been whetted.

Yeah, but it was WORTH it, right? Next time we won't eat so much. Eat less, drink more. Heh.

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
