Easter feast

Today was not a good Weight Watcher day, in fact, though my points reset on Thursday, I have burned through more than my 35 weekly allowance. This should be the part where as a good weight loss blogger, I talk about how disappointed in myself I am and how I'm going to do better, etc.

Except that I'm not going to do that. I had one goal for this weekend: To track as honestly and completely as possible, to enjoy the holiday and my time with my family, and to get back on track on Monday.

And also not to be surprised or angry at any gain I earned.

I am glad I have my family near enough to spend holidays with them and I enjoy eating with my family. The only thing I regret, actually, is that today I misjudged my appetite and ate past the point of fullness and spent some time feeling uncomfortable and distracted.

I was really looking forward to a Peanut Butter Egg, despite all the peanut butter mess earlier this year. I haven't felt any ill effects, so I'm guessing (hoping) that the products on the shelf are clean.


  1. You have the right attitude! I try to have that attitude around the holidays as well. It's too hard to be super strict then!

  2. love Jillians quote. It was a holiday..tomorrow is a new day.

  3. That quote is fantastic as is your attitude to your easter. Good on you (lucky we always have Mondays!).

  4. I have had the same struggle seems like for the last 2 months no matter what I am over my points-
    Today is a new day!

  5. I do like your plan to get through the holiday dinner. Really, you did good even though you have regrets about misjudging your appetite. (I wonder if there's a way for us to remember that feeling when it's another holiday dinner*.)

    (*I keep hitting the wrong key and calling it holiday sinner instead of holiday dinner. Paging Dr. Freud!)

  6. I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that if ONE (and only one) peanut butter egg is consumed on Easter Day, that through some scientific miracle it does not have any calories. And of course I believe it enough that I ate one too.
