Down on Myself - Pity Party Post - You've Been Warned :)

Well, I saw a new number on my scale. 91.4.

And then as quick as I saw it, it went away. Because I gained back 3 lbs. Do you get down on yourself when this happens to you? Does this happen to you? Oh please tell me I'm not the only one.

I'm not giving excuses, we were celebrating my hubby's birthday which falls on Thanksgiving this year.

Other good things have been happening too. My daughter got on the A-B honor roll at school!! She rocked it this marking period. My son is doing really well. We have rough days still but I'm now seeing more good than bad.

I guess since I lean toward this being a WLS blog and the vast majority of my readers are right there with me, I tend to mostly talk about that. I was SOOOOO excited to see that number and then to make such awful choices and let it slip away is discouraging. Like feeling like I'm back to old ways. Then I try to remind myself when I go through the grocery store I'm not making the same choices I used to. No more Hostess fruit pies for breakfast. Or chocolate covered doughnuts with Mountain Dew. Right?!

I'm, coincidentally, "feeling the weight" of Thanksgiving upon me after making such bad choices for myself this weekend.

Sorry for the pity party post.


  1. I hate it when the scale goes up and down so wildly. As much as we might have indulged, it wasn't TRULY over 10,000 calories to reach THREE POUNDS of gain! Don't be too hard on yourself and just get back on track.

    Congrats to your daughter on the honor roll! That's wonderful!

  2. We've all absolutely have done this exact same thing. It took me 3 weeks to get to Onederland after seeing 200 on the scale...interesting form of self sabotage. LOL. Glad it's all good things happening though. Easier to get back on track when you're celebrating vs when you're stressed. :)

  3. Don't be hard on yourself. We all go up and down and self sabotage in subtle ways. I am glad you enjoyed celebrating the good things... as long as you don't make it a permanent celebration and keep things in moderation. :) ;) This is journey. Not a sprint.
