sunshine and rainbows.....naught!

Came so close yesterday to checking out for the day into a food coma. I did end up going back to bed for a nice 2 hour nap. Woke up and started to the fridge again. Decided staying home wasn't in my best interest, so I headed out to my daughter's on spent the afternoon there. We had lots of fun, I took the boys to the library and for McD's ice cream cone, extra small. The adults played Yahtzee and Scatagories and just had a good time. I didn't make it to church. I will so glad when my church starts at 9am. 6 more weeks! By 1 pm I have talked (or ate) myself out it. Not proud of that, but that's the way it is.

It's weigh in day at WW. I almost hate to weigh, it's like the number is going to make or break my day. I hate that I "allow" myself to be RULED like that. I am not going to go to WW at noon, like I did last week. I haven't been staying or going to my regular Monday night meeting, and that is all part of success. I want to weigh earlier (noon) so that I can eat after I weigh. STUPID! This isn't about the number on the scale...really......but damn it I can sure make it seem that way.

I had 3 days off work, and I so wish I had 3 more! I am feeling bratty again today. I know it's not all sunshine and rainbows ( that made me laugh, Roxie) but I hate feeling like this. I remember this to shall pass. I need to be positive! I need to be grateful.....and I am. (deep sigh) ok I will work on it.

keep the mood and the food real................


  1. When you go to weigh in don't look at the book and ask them not to tell you!

  2. Ultimately it is not about the number on the scale, but that's how WW gauges our success. So, once a week for about 10 seconds it is all about the number. I feel that way, too. It's hard to let that only be 10 seconds, isn't it?

  3. I'm doing WW online because I really messed with my own brain over the number on the scale. Now I weigh in the morning and don't have those issues anymore.

    It's just a number, but I think it's easy to hyper-focus on it.

    Everyone has days like this. It's human nature.

  4. Good luck at WI! :) Maybe there will be a lil sunshine? or a small glimpse of a rainbow? :)

  5. I sooooo know what you mean about the scale ruling your day. I've told myself for the past 2 yrs I'm not going to let it but it still seems to most weeks. Wonder when we will let that go. Anyway, good for you for getting out and having a good time. I need to do more of that, me and my hermit ways lol. I could go for 3 more days off too. Hubby always says "can't we work the weekend and have off the rest of the week" lol wouldn't it be nice if it worked that way. Sigh. Good luck tonight.

  6. Good luck with the weigh-in. I know what you mean about weighing in in the morning - I always feel my lightest then. Maybe just set your sights a little lower for the mid-day weigh-in so you don't get freaked out. Crossing fingers for you.

  7. This too shall pass. Just make the best of it and KNOW that everything sort of cycles through.

    And the greatest piece of advice EVAH - When you are in a hole, put down the shovel.

    Know that you will get through it. Try to inflict as little damage as possible. Like you did yesterday by making the decision that staying home wasn't in your best interest. That's awesome!

    I'll be thinking "unbratty" thoughts for you today.

  8. Just knowing how the numbers effect you is a good start.

  9. The number is just information. It's not who you are. The scale was my god when I was younger. I now refuse to give an inanimate object so much power over me.

  10. There's something about going to WW meetings that often puts things into perspective. I hope the weigh in went well, and that you have a great meeting.

    I try not to focus so much on the weight scale and gauge my weight loss more on measurements. Have you tried measuring yourself?

  11. I used to focus too much on the number. Weighin in 3/4 times a day! Stupid I know. Now I weigh in once a week (my mum did have to hide the scale like) and it is so much better for me :D

    Stay positive, girly! You will rock weigh in. I know it.


Tell me what you think!
