what the???

I was so apprehensive about going to WI today. I totally went overboard last Sunday. I ate a lot on Thanksgiving. But I was really restrictive with myself the rest of the week. Yesterday I drank a TON of water...even last night I was guzzling the stuff.

This morning at WI? I was down 1.6 for the week. I should have posted a warning that if you gained this week you may not want to read on because you might be pissed. I honestly don't know how that happened.

But I am thankful!!! So the receptionist told me to add another daily point. That brings me to 28 daily points plus my 35 WPA. That is a lot. I think I need to change my mindset in some ways, too. I am always concerned about going over so I stick to low point foods. Maybe it's OK to indulge a little more? Hot damn is all I have to say to that!

I know for me there will be a fine line between indulging a little and bingeing. But like maybe I could have a whole sandwhich now instead of just a half? And maybe the next time we have burritos I can eat the plain old flour tortilla with beans and regular cheese and regular sour cream? OK, maybe a whole wheat tortilla with regular dairy?

After all the changes I've made in the past year, it does seem really strange to let some of that go. But I will just continue to watch the scale and follow that as my lead.

That's wonderful.... take it as one of those karma moments... your body owes you for the times you should have lost more but didn't :)

And thank you so much for your post on my blog about your kids' eating habits... you've obviously done a great job of not passing on any bad habits.... you're my inspiration!!

It's so funny how there is such a fine line between too much, and not enough, it's amazing, and I'm sure it will take you a couple months to get a handle on it, but it sounds to me like you are getting a good handle on it!

I haven't forgotten about your protein powder, I've just been swamped, I will mail it soon :)

I know exactly how you feel. I hit my goal weight about 6 months ago and I'm still tweaking things here and there. The good news is that I've been within a 2.5/3.0 lb. range the whole time, the bad news is that it can swing as much as a pound and a half in either direction for no apparent reason! But I'm not complaining. Not at all. I guess I just have to realize that no matter what, it will never make sense completely.
