Uh Oh!

What have I done? I want to laugh but I can't really laugh but I can't really punish myself either since I believe the more I hate on myself the more damage I do to my psyche as well as my emotional and physical selves.

Saturday I had a Mary Kay party with my friends and all went well, I got some goodies for free that will make me look younger ;) and well I gained 4 pounds from the event too. I didn't eat any desert not one bite, I ate about 50 strawberries (no exaggeration here I'm hooked on strawberries) and a ton of crackers with bologna. The sodium alone in what I ate is probably what my downfall is, all this water retention, I feel bloated, I feel bad because I overate but I won't punish myself. I will just continue onto the road I have thus far and count my calories, eat healthy and exercise. These 4 pounds will be gone by next week or the week after with extra weight off, of that I'm sure.

This is where I'm starting to feel grown up because I'm not hating on myself, I am my worse enemy and I have to change that which I am slowly but surely and always progress. I credit AA with that, they have taught me so much about finding who I am, seeing what makes me tick, being open minded towards myself and others.

So instead of 55 pounds loss I'm down 51 pounds but that's OK, I still love me and will continue down the weight loss road.

Thanks for stopping by

Not beating up on yourself is huge progress! I'm also just learning that and it's so empowering!

That sodium is definitely a killer! You are so right not to hate yourself or beat yourself up. Today is a new day to make healthier choices.

I am in that stage too... I found a new and exciting me with the last 5 lbs I lost, that I haven't ever known. I'm confident, and much more forgiving of myself, without totally giving up like I would before. 1 slip up would turn into two bad weeks. Now I know where I'm going, and happy with my slow progress, slip ups and all :) Congratulations Sassle!!!!!!!

It's a hard but important lesson to learn to go easier on ourselves. :S

Here is the Oat Bread recipe I used: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Light-Oat-Bread/Detail.aspx?prop31=1
Except, I used half white/half wheat flour. I usually choose olive oil over margarine but yesterday I used my husbands heart healthy stuff as a splurge.

I think accepting I am not going to be on the straight and narrow path to weight loss 100% of the time has been a big tool is continuing to move forward.

"This blog is so much more then writing about my weight loss journey it has become an extension in helping me know who I am and who I can be."
