The Ultimate Pity Party


I’m having a pity party.  A full-blown pity BASH.  You are all invited.  I’m thinking pizza with sausage, fettuccini alfredo, In ‘n’ Out burgers (animal style), my friend Aimee’s amazing chocolate chip cookies, Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream cake.  Plus, lots and lots of booze with highly caloric mixers.



I weighed in at Weight Watchers. After what I thought was a very successful week, I gained .2 lbs.  I realize this isn't a tremendous amount of weight. But it's the WRONG DIRECTION! Fighting back tears, I told our leader…”But I worked out 5 days this week, started tennis, power walked and BLOGGED for God’s sake!” I’ve been attending Weight Watchers meetings for a year now.  I sat down in my chair and then felt the tears start to well up.  I tried so hard not to blink so they wouldn’t roll down my face.  I had baby Luke with me in his little car/stroller and looked for the quickest escape.  Before the meeting started I headed for the door.  I looked at my good friend Melissa and said “I can’t do this today.  I can’t sit here and listen to all of this.”  I didn’t want to hear everyone’s success stories and the very obvious things they were doing to lose weight.  I didn’t want anyone telling me, “hang in there, the weight will come off next week.” It’s been 6 months since I’ve lost.  I don’t want to hear it.  I can’t stand when people are “Masters of the Obvious” and ask me questions like “are you switching up your exercise regime?”  “Are you eating too many carbs?” “Have you checked your thyroid?”


Yes. No. And Yes.


My personal favorite is “Are you working out too much?”  Really? Uh, apparently not.


I’m was about to give in and just let myself be fat and happy but then I remembered this blog and what I promised myself and my readers (if you’re out there!) I would do.


So, I need to assess this situation.  First, I need to wipe this so-called “waterproof” mascara off my face.  I really am a positive person and try to have the glass is half full mentality.  Let’s look at where I’ve been and where I can go…


Things I did right:
1.  Worked out 5 times this week.
2.  Signed up for cardio tennis
3.  Went on a power walk
4.  Researched and ordered the right thing when we got Chinese take out (steamed chicken and veggies (sauce on the side), egg foo yung, steamed dumplings
5.  Wrote down everything I ate-except for Saturday and Sunday.


Thing I could have done better:
1. Less alcohol
2. Should have written down my food for Saturday and Sunday
3. Stop taking bites of the kids food.  Let my husband make sure the mac and cheese or chicken fingers aren’t “too hot”.
4. We probably ate out too much this weekend.  It’s difficult to use portion control and know our points.
5.  Find out how many points are in the sushi rolls we like to eat.


Steps I’m taking this week:


1.  My doctor had suggested a cholesterol test and blood test to see where my hormone levels are.  I’m going to schedule this appointment. I’m not sure what this will do for me but I have to do something.


2. I bought fun waters that look pretty in a wine glass.  That’s what I’m going to drink with my meal this week instead of wine.


3.  Consider training for a half marathon.  I’ve already been on the website for the Disney half marathon.  My friend Rachael from high school suggested we run together many months ago.  To be honest, I’m afraid of what would happen after I stopped training. I’ve run a half marathon before and when I stopped running I gained a lot of weight back.  Running is probably my least favorite activity but maybe I will face that head on.


4.  Less Eating out.  I've already done my shopping and provided the family with healthy options for this week...lots of veggies, fresh fruit, lean meats.


5. Be patient. I’m certainly not making excuses but my hormones may indeed be out of whack right now.  There are certain weeks a woman’s body retains water. This might be one of them.  I’m going to cut myself a bit of a break and just take one day at a time.


Let's put that pity party on hold for now.  I'm going to stay POSITIVE.  If you’ve got any quality suggestions on how to pick yourself up and dust yourself off, please let me know!

K Mac - you are one of the most positive people I know. Keep you head up and know that there is a goal ahead of you and you have what it takes to meet it. Some weeks are going to be harder than others, but that is what makes reaching your goal so satisfying.

http://rachelraydietsecrets.com/home.php?t202id=1555&OVRAW=quick+loss+weight+center&OVKEY=quick+loss+weight+center&OVMTC=standardif this takes it is a good site to visit, the Dreaded Rush Limbaugh has lost 80+ lbs since 03/09/09 on a Diet called something like "The Quick Weight Loss Program". Rush is "anti-exercise" he says all that exercise only increases your appetite. Go to his Web-site and see the before and after photos...amazing stuff! "rushlimbaugh.com"
