a big gain

Weight Chart
I can't really complain, I went a little overboard with food this last week and I knew that a gain was probably coming. I had a good day yesterday, and maybe I'll remember that losing makes me happier than gaining when I am confronted with things like homemade pizza and my aunt's pasta....

But then again, that stuff is really good.

It looks like I'll have to wait a little longer to see the 150s. This Weight Watchers @ Work session ends on April 24. If I really work hard, maybe I could get within two pounds of goal before the next one starts and not have to pay.


  1. Homemade pizza and your aunt's pasta sound yummy, and full of family ties which nourish the spirit. I'll have a helping, too, please :)

    The weight will come when it comes. You're doing the things that will bring the results, and since I know you have gone back to Winning Points, I'll be interested to see how that changes your results.

    No matter what, I know you're working hard to be balanced and that is a Very Good Thing.

  2. Sometimes it's virtually impossible to remember that losing is better than gaining, or even to grant that thought any credibility when you do remember.

    When I'm eating for my goals, I guess that message is unconsciously what I'm thinking and acting on. Therefore I should give myself some credit for all the times that I live like that, without even noticing I'm doing it.

    Yesterday was classic for me like that. I was sniffing around the food on my Mum's kitchen bench: gourmet cheeses, delicatessen items, yum. I even unwrapped the cheese to take some. But then I wrapped it back up. I guess I heard the message, 'losing is better than gaining'.

    Four hours later I was marching down to the supermarket for Pringles, telling that same message to eff off.
