Last week was probably my best week on Weight Watchers yet. I worked out hard, ate well, and was so sure I would lose weight… only to gain a pound. I told myself that this was because everyone’s body fluctuates and not to get upset because I really had done everything right that week. I thought I was okay with it, but I can’t help wondering if getting that gain when I did not expect it affected me this week.
For the first time since joining Weight Watchers I am having a bad week.
A REALLY bad week.
A can’t stop, won’t stop, binge eating week.
Monday I fixed a huge dinner for a friend and me. Since I only see this person once or twice a year I decided to really do it up with a special homemade dessert. The problem was I burned almost every weekly point in that dinner on the very first day of my Weight Watchers week.
Well then top that off with the fact that I have been craving sweets like crazy and BOOM…
Tuesday night I made one more batch of homemade Reese’s cups (because I still had the ingredients left over) and ate them all myself, in bed, while watching Orange is the New Black.
Then today I got super stressed because of some work stuff so this happened at my desk…
And then when I came home I ate a all the leftover peanut butter and a entire bag of chips (which I never keep in the house, but were here from Monday). I know we all have slip-ups, you know, progress not perfection, and that whole bit. However, I do hope to one day get to the point where I can enjoy one bag of M&M’s as a nice treat without following it with a jar of peanut butter and a huge bag of tortilla chips.
So there it is – putting it out there because I know I am not the only one who has issues like this and I want to be honest with you all about my journey to healthy living. I am slowly trying to get away from the binge eating, but it is a struggle. How is it that marathon running came easier than eating right?
Hopefully by admitting my struggles this week to you all, and by taking ownership of them, I will get my butt back on the right track.
Favorite kind of M&M’s? I’m a peanut girl, but was desperate today.
Show you would want to watch in bed while munching? Currently I am OITNB obsessed.
