I hate that bastard.
So, as predicted, weigh in was grim. I warned the lady before I stepped on the scale. 'Don't panic' were my exact words. When she was ready I gingerly stepped up onto that appliance of torture. I held my breath hoping that would take off at least 5 pounds. No such luck. The scale read 196.2. Up 6 pounds. I heard the sharp intake of breath from the lady, but to give her credit, she only turned red but didn't pass out. I think she might have been tunking the weight reader thinking it was broken, but I can't be sure.
Have I learned anything? Yep I have. If you eat too much you gain weight. OMG! I didn't know that before!!! Now that I know that, I'll just not eat too much anymore. Problem solved! Oh were it that easy eh?
My meeting was very motivating last night. I got lots of good ideas. One I particularly liked was a 'no' list. We've got this one, anemic, vegan, tree hugger lady in our class. Her nasally whine sends shivers up my spine so I usually tune out anything she says. She's all pale and scrawny and always giving us advice on how we shouldn't eat anything with a face. F that. I respect your diet choice, I really do. Don't push it on me. I love me some meat. I love eggs. Shrimp have faces and they're delish! I am a charter member of PETA (people eating tasty animals). Anytime any of us say we have a problem with a particular food, she'll always spout how we should never have a problem with that food as it's got some animal product in it. We shouldn't even think about liking it because it had an ingredient that used to have a face. Screw that shit, makes me want it all the more! Anyway, if she has no problems with any food, why the hell is she in the class anyway? Crap, I digressed as usual! Sorry....I do tend to go on rants. Let's get on with the one good idea this peaked, whining, scrawny, thing with a face ever had shall we? A 'no' list.
A 'no' list is a page in your journal or your calendar, or whatever, that every time you say no to something, you get a brownie point. Mmmmm brownies...oops sorry again. I love that idea! The more we practice self control, the easier it'll become. What a good habit to form eh??? This morning, as of course I'm still not back OP, I got out the butter to go on my english muffin. I also had out the natural peanut butter and the all fruit jam and the skim milk. I was waiting for the muffin to toast and was getting the butter on the knife. I thought about it a minute, and put it back in the bowl. I told myself no. I'm having peanut butter, I don't need butter also. Wow, that was a great feeling! Imagine if I did that 10 more times today. Even though I'm not on program, I could still maintain this week if I try hard enough. I could break a nasty habit of always indulging my every whim. I'm a list maker, and this is kind of a list. I can challenge myself to add more 'no's every day! I want mashed potatoes for dinner, no I think I'll have green beans instead. Yay! Another sticker on my calendar or hash mark in my book or whatever. I'm visual. This is a tip I can use. I think I'll use stickers. I like stickers.
Let's all say no shall we???
A wink and a smile
