New train of thought...

I have been obviously struggling for awhile now, back and forth, back and forth, trying to lose the same weight over and over again, and it is frustrating. I feel like I need to look at it a different way. I was talking to a friend of mine, who is pregnant now, but is a lifetime member at WW. She was telling me how she can't wait to start up on WW again once she has this baby. She says she LOVES "dieting" because it is a game to her, mentally, that she is trying to win. She hates trying to mantain, but loves the game of trying to get the numbers on the scale to go down. I walked away from the conversation thinking about it. Maybe I should try to look at it like that, and see if it changes my thought process. It may sound silly, but sometimes it just takes something like that to help you out.

I was proud of myself ( sorta ) this weekend. My husband had a work dinner that we had to go to at this amazing resturant. Now, my husband and I NEVER go out to dinner, like ever, so I knew from the start, that I was just going to enjoy myself and splurge, and BOY, did I ever! They had everything from fresh belgian waffles, crepes with Nutella, fresh egg omelets, and dinner stuff like, alfredo, pasta, pizza, fresh mozzerella and olives, bread, etc. Then, the desserts! Chocolate fondue fountain with every fruit you can think of, graham crackers, marshmellows, pretzels, etc and every kind of chocolate cake, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate covered rice krispie treats, the list goes on and on. I ate enough to last a week. It ended at 2:00pm, and I didn't eat anything the rest of the day. You are probably wondering when I will get to the part that I am proud of myself...lol! Normally when I have a meal like that, it turns into a bad day, and then a bad NEXT day, and then a bad week. I have a REALLY hard time coming off a meal like that and going 100% back on plan. I did go right back on, which I am pretty happy about! Now, I was up like 4 pounds on Monday after that huge meal, but am already down almost 2 of it by today. I will keep on plugging away...I want to get in a good groove before we leave on Sunday!


  1. Awesome! Proud of you for getting right back on the next day! I struggle in that area, too!
    Can't wait till Sunday ;)

  2. You should feel proud! Getting right back on is quite and accomplishment Congratulations!

  3. Hi Jessica. Just found your blog on the WW forum. We're about the same weight with the same amount to lose so hopefully you can continue to inspire me with your blog! Not least because you're being brave enough to say the things that need saying! You're so right about having the courage to start afresh the day after a blow out! Good luck!

    1. Thanks for commenting "Wannabe Goddess" and welcome to my blog! I'm not too encouraging, as I have been failing a lot, but I hope to start doing better! So glad you are following now! :-)
