Week 1 Weigh In

Hey Kids!!

I have about 15 minutes to blog at you, so I’ma do this fast. 🙂

I had my goal of .2 pounds in my mind when I went to my Weight Watchers weigh in on Saturday morning, and I’m happy to report that I had a loss of 3.4 pounds! I was really happy with that. My current weight is 193.6. Not a bad start if I do say so myself!

Okay, let’s talk about cake. My son’s birthday party was also on Saturday and I had arranged for my neighbor to bake a special cake for my son (my neighbors have started decorating cakes as a hobby and I wanted to support them), so when they brought it over Saturday afternoon, I was surprised at how HUGE this thing was. Seriously this cake could probably feed 40 people – we had 6 kids over for the party. Even though I gave the kids huge slices (most of which went uneaten), there was still a ton of cake leftover.

[Let me interrupt with an important side story here: my husband has a cold with a nasty dry cough and congestion. He’s miserable, but so am I since he COUGHS AND SNORES all night. This has been going on for 3 nights (I have the option of sleeping on the couch, but I don’t sleep well there either) so I was super tired on Sunday (yesterday).]

Being tired is a big trigger for me, so when you couple being tired and cranky with lots of leftover birthday cake…well let’s just say the cake was a problem for me yesterday. I got busted several times trying to sneak a bite here and there and finally decided it was ridiculous and that I was over it. It wasn’t making me any less tired, so I finally went and took a short nap and then I was (mostly) fine. But I struggled with that cake most of the day, and I really think that if I hadn’t been so freaking tired, I would have been able to keep my guard up a little better. But what’s done is done, and tonight I’m going to cut off a few small pieces for the kids and then freeze the rest (after I cut the kids’ pieces, we’ll still have half a cake left). I can pull it out for the next big family gathering and let everyone else enjoy it.

So that was my weekend – a good weigh in, then a fight to the death with cake. I’m back on track today and bound and determine to make the rest of the week a good one.

Over and out,

  1. This was one of the HARDEST things to make myself do….because we work hard for our money…and then we spend that hard earned money on things..and its hard to let them go to waste..BUT…..your body is worth the money you spent on that cake..so throw it away.

    That’s right! I said throw it out. You cut some extra pieces…now get rid of it.

    I actually blogged about something just like that a bit ago. My mother-in-law (God bless her) sent us home with a huge tub of cookie, chocolates, cupcakes, twizzlers..etc. I had…a few…ok, more than a few..and there was still TOO much left. So my husband says ‘just throw it away’. I was aghast at the suggestion and I didnt even spend money on those goodies. But…I made myself do it. And the whole time I did I was chanting to myself ‘I am worth it, I am worth it, I am worth it’. And so are you!

  2. CONGRATS on that great weight loss! And good on putting the cake in the freezer. These things lose their magical powers in the freezer!

  3. Wonderful news on the weight loss!! Sometimes I find it helpful to cut a portion size of whatever I am craving and allow myself to eat it guilt-free. It satisfies the craving and allows me to move on without constantly going back and ending up eating more of the forbidden food then I had even originally intended. That’s what works for me but really it’s all about finding what works for you.
