Weight Loss Wednesday

Ok, so I had a little bit of fun over the weekend - sue me!  Well, actually I had a lot of fun over the weekend...3 solid days of drinking and shoveling food into my face eating  at the lake with my best friends for my bachelorette party.  Guess what?

I gained about 6 pounds in 4 days.  Eek!  I kept telling myself...don't freak out...it's worth it...it will come off. 

And guess what?  I didn't freak out, it WAS worth it and it is already coming off.  Yes, this was a rare and planned occasion where I knew I was going to indulge (well, indulge is not even quite the word - I felt like I was in college again and the freedom was incredibly satisfying).  Then there comes a time to face reality and get back on track.  So that's what I did.   Back on track and doing fine.   I think the key is not to punish yourself and to just reign it in and not let your bad eating snowball.

Over all, I think this weekend put me about two weeks behind in my weight loss efforts (one week to get the weight back off and a second week to get back to where I was going to be), but the main question:  was it worth it? 

YES!  It was worth it.  Now, should I indulge every weekend or even once a month.  No!  Hell no.  that would never work.  I have a goal and I AM going to get there.  Little treats here and there won't kill your momentum but a weekend of willy-nilly booze chugging will.

Thank you to my sisters and friends for an amazing party.  I love you all.
