Healthy You Post

This was a pretty good week, WW-wise. Personal life-wise, it was a shitty week. But I'm not going to go there.

I didn't eat "healthy" this week, but I did stick w/in my points. And I think sometimes your body needs you to just switch it up. This weekend, I had a couple days of some bad food decisions. I logged everything I ate though, and I did have points for it all. My weekend food included pizza, mexican, margaritas, steak dinner (complete w/baked potato & dinner rolls), and ice cream. It was a weekend of "old" eating.

But, it didn't hurt me. You're allowed to splurge once in awhile. Noone is perfect. If you deny yourself what you're craving, it's only going to make the craving worse. Then when you do finally give in, you're more likely to go WAY overboard.

So tonight I stepped on the scale, and I was happily down 3 pounds! That is 46.4 pounds total so far. I'm inching closer to the 50 pound mark. I feel like I've been in this weight "decade" for EVER. I'll be so happy to see that next decade!

I probably will continue to be a little absent from the consistent blogs & reading all of you right now. My personal life has to come first, and I need to sort things out with that in my own time. I miss you & love you all!

With everything you've got going on, you've got a loss. That's wonderful! And if you stuck within your points and drank your water and got your veggies in etc. etc., who cares if you ate pizza and steak and stuff? Your points are for eating. Enjoy them.

We'll miss you while you're absent. Take care of yourself.

Great week! Splurging, but within reason, is a hard line to toe, and you did it!

Take care!

Congrats on the loss, Teale! That is fantastic!

I'm taking a little blogging break, too. I'm still reading everyone's blogs, but I'm just taking a break from posting for awhile. So... I totally understand. Hang in there. Everything will work out. :)

Good for you!

And you are absolutely right--every once in a while, you do just need to indulge your cravings. But you did it the right way...you journaled, you moved on...and you lost weight!

big hugs...I know it's still a rough time and I hope you know there are so many positive thoughts being sent your way!

Hope things look better this week. Take care and way to go with the loss!

Sybil said...

Good job! And I think you are totally right about the occassional splurges. When I started this LATEST journey, I knew that there couldn't be any foods that were permanently off limits. So, although most of the time I pass on the less than healthy choices, occassionally chocolate, margarita's and cheesecake are a part of my plan.

Best wishes on your working on your personal issues.
