I Deserve It

Today I weighed in and lost 2.8 lbs. That is a great loss for one week.

I thought I deserved more.

I tracked my WW points every single day, didn't eat big dinners if I didn't have the points, and didn't use more than my allotted flex points.

I thought I deserved more.

Since I did have a good loss and since I was on my own for the weekend I decided to treat myself to breakfast at McDonald's. I love breakfast at McDonalds.

I thought I deserved it.

At the baby shower I didn't eat too bad, I had carrots and strawberries and a little piece of angel food cake. And 3 brownies and 3 glasses of punch...after all, I had driven so far and had my son to take care of by myself and I hadn't been to a party in ages.

I thought I deserved it.

On the way home I was super tired and hungry for a "meal." After all, I wouldn't have a whole lot of time to eat at home and I didn't feel like fixing something for my son and me so I stopped by Wendy's for some caffine and a value meal.

I thought I deserved it.

I indulged, and indulged again, and over indulged. I had more than what I've listed here...I can give you every excuse in the book. I'm really good at this game after a life time of "treating" myself to food.

I probably gained my 2.8 back tonight. I probably used all my flex points (I'll count here in a bit).....

But, I deserve it.

Hi Sara,
Haven't seen any updates on here and thought I'd leave a message. :) I added a link to your blog from my blog tonight, so you have to update it. :) Hope all is well. I can totally relate to what you last wrote "I deserve it". Been there, done that. Even if you gain, you recognize it and can move on. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

I read your blog and it sounded like me. I had eaten so incredibly well for about 5 days. But we had a going away party (my friend is moving to Idaho!) and I totally sabatoged myself. I ate cookies and brownies and chess squares after swearing off sugar. That was Tuesday and my eating hasn't recovered. I'm going back to Weight Watchers in the morning. Hopefully seeing my weight as a big, flashing number will be enough to get my butt in gear.
You know what you deserve? You deserve success, and you'll get that by counting those points and jumping right back in.
Best of luck. Don't give up!
