Recovering from a Wedding Weekend...

Wow- you'de think after about 40 weeks on WW I would have learned how to conduct myself at a wedding buffet...but NO....I didn't and I PIGGED out....and PIGGED out... not just at the wedding Saturday night- but on friday night at the bridal shower as well grrrr Ifelt sooooo sick/bloated/sad/disappointed with myself all day sunday...and when I tried to eat just healthy things on sunday I felt like my body was going through withdrawls and I sabatoged myself some more....when I weighed myself sunday night I was up 7 pds....

in anycase I drakn like 3 L of water, ate responsibly and played 13holes of golf and did my walk/jog routine for 42 mins.... Today will be another responsible eating day and hopefully some more exercise if my body can handle it-- I'm sore this AM...usually i only play 9 holes- but it was twilight and you pay one price and can play as many as you like.... I was soo close to the 40pd lost that now I"m really quite disappointed in myself for letting myself act like such a hog

in good news- I received quite a few compliments from family members as to how much I've lost- so that was an up- but not enough to keep me from strappin on the feed bag and going to town....grrr

anyways- new day, new week, new motivation......

Don't sweat it...I am sure you will be back down in no time. Sometimes its good to just let it all go and just "be".

What is done is done, you can't change the past, but you can decide how you are going to deal with the consequences. Now that its out of your system, you can get back on track, and I am sure you will se a significant loss.

Just be sure not to let it bum you out too much. Don't sabotage yourself. In fact, I wouldn't even "count" that weigh in. See where you are next week and just stay positive.

Good Luck!

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
