this post is titled correctly due to the hideous numbers you see above. ladies and gentlemen, that was my tracker after yesterday (saturday).

55 points. one day.

1 weekly point left. FOR THE WEEK!

"f$&k" doesn't even begin to describe how i feel about this. i know i shouldn't beat myself up, but are you freaking kidding me?? you'd think after last week i would've learned my lesson about indulgent days, but friday and saturday i seemed to forget all that. 

here's my disaster equation:

3 1/2 pieces of bbq chicken pizza = 28 points (2 points more than my whole day in one meal!)


saturday's wedding dinner disaster = 39 points
- cupcake
- 3/4 slice wedding cake
- vanilla ice cream
- chicken cordon bleu
- wine
(this doesn't even include the lunch and breakfast i had earlier in the day)

1 weekly point left.

someone get me a food counselor, stat! i've clearly lost my mind.


  1. Yikes! Well, you have to look at the positive, you ate it AND logged it. that's a huge step that so many people forget (or choose to ignore, like myself). I was at a wedding last night. I didn't make any effort to log it. I know I should, but I can't bear to bring myself to do it. So I'm pretending it didn't happen.

    And I know I've said this before but one or two days don't make or break you, it's the culmination of all the days every week, so live and learn. You'll be eating lean this week with no weekly points left, but all isn't lost, or rather - doesn't have to be.

    If you don't learn anything long the way in the weight loss process, then you're doing it wrong. This is one of those fantastic teachable moments, that as a teacher, I would love (if it were relative to computers of course ;) ) so let it be that way for you. Remember that next time you have a large event on the weekend, to plan for it. Enter in a slice of cake (because we all know its going to happen) and maybe a cookie or cupcake. Enter in a meat if you don't know what exactly they are serving the day before into your logger. Then you can reflectively look at it and make your choices around what you have coming up!

    I know I know, easier said than done....

  2. Susan, you are always a voice of reason. I am trying to pick up, and move on... being proud of actually tracking instead of hiding in shame.

    And, I couldn't have expected everything to go perfect, right? I mean, its all about learning what works for me and what doesn't. So, I guess I'm having a lot of lessons in what doesn't work! ;)
