Good and Bad of Week and Weigh-In

It has been an amazing week, very tiring but not bad.  What I have managed to do all week is hit the gym while my son is at practice.  This has made me feel very good and proud of myself.  I also think it was made easier by the fact that my husband is working nights so he isnt home to tend to.  The only downside is that I have not cooked dinner all week which means my mom does.  My doctor pointed something out to me and I guess I should be ashamed.  I told my doctor that my mom was cooking and one particular night she made chicken and dumplings and I probably didnt sound too thrilled about it.  She said to me "Be thankful that you have someone to cook for you and make chicken and dumplings, you can just have less"  Ok, so yes, this was kinda like a slap in the face.  I guess when I look at food and I see something that I know to be bad for me (not necessarily the C&D) but I think more of quantity than quality.  For instance, I will be able to make dinner tonight and the first think I think of is what can I make that is healthy that I can have a lot of!  Wow, how terrible is that.  No wonder I almost hit 300!

I have got so much to learn about control.  I really hate being out of control.  

So the good:
1.  Made it to gym every day this week (and plan on going again today)
2.  I have LOST 2 pounds
3.  I get quiet alone time while husband works nights (dont tell him I said that)

The bad:
1.  Have not been home to cook wonderfully healthy dishes for family
2.  Have to decide if I want to eat my moms food (Man, I sound terrible huh)

So the Good outweighs the bad, that is all that matters.  I am so glad it is Friday.  As you can see my weigh-in was good.  Crazy thing about that is I was 242 every day this week EVEN YESTERDAY and seems the 11th hour strikes again, I dont know how I even gave into a little bowl of macaroni and cheese late last night!  crazy but I will take it.  My mom on the other hand has gained 3 pounds.  I told her to figure out her mistake and learn from it.  She said "no more shakes"  No, she wasnt having real shakes but more like a smoothy.  She has been addicted to these smoothys lately and when she makes one it is huge so she said no more.  I tried to tell her to just make a small glass to get the taste but she said no, no more.  Hmm, guess I know where I get that attitude from.

Ok, I better head to work now, got one job today but it is a messy one.  I like this job though cause I can see how pretty I can make it.  Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. I look at food the same way! If it is healthy then I can eat more of it!

    But you know what I do sometimes now that I am banded!?

    I can only eat a tiny bit so I can have the bad things now! I work at changing that every day!

    Have a good weekend!

  2. Haha, I agree with Amanda. I eat whatever I want, just way less. Nothing's really "bad" for you, there's just empty calories in many things.

    By the way, great job on the 2 lbs loss. :)
