Weigh-in Wednesday

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansUgh. I'm up 0.6.

I knew it was likely to happen, and I still hate it, but three days of company just simply means I cook and eat differently for three days. Instead of a main course, one side dish, water for drinking, and no dessert, I make a main course, two side dishes (plus often have bread on the table, too), drink ice tea instead of water... and there's ALWAYS dessert! Sometimes more than one ~ and it often gets served after supper and again later in the evening.

::sigh::

It's really no wonder I'm up. I got in more exercising over the weekend than I would have if my parents hadn't been out (hubby was gone, so I only got to walk because there were still responsible adults in the house with my girls while I was gone!), but I have a problem with being the hostess and not eating a bit of everything on the table ~ even though I'm just hosting my parents. It just looks wrong for the hostess/cook to not eat the food she's serving!! I didn't over-eat, but I ate more than I would have if it had just been me and the girls all weekend.

So I gained a bit of weight. But now that things are back to normal and hubby will actually be home an extra day this weekend making an extra walk possible.... I should have no problems reporting a loss again next week!

i think its totally fine for you to eat whatever you want when your parents are over. save your splurging (and manners) for when his parents are over :P

half a pound (less than that, really) doesn't count as gaining! honestly, that's the only trouble with weekly weigh-ins, we should really be worried if we have fallen off completely and have no hope of ever coming back. but that's not you! you had family over, you had a special (planned) occasion, and i'm sure that this week you'll be doing the same stuff you always do because you rock that way! so don't worry. mkay? great job this week with keeping it to such a minimum! you should be proud of that!

Don't worry about that slight gain! You were enjoying the company of your parents. In the grand scheme of things .6 is nothing! You will reach your goal! I just know it!

I had a gain this week too Tammi! It does suck, but we are ready to be losers again next week! Good for you for keeping on track.

Wohoo!! I can't wait to see the loss you have next week!

I agree wholeheartedly with Christie! You're in this for the long haul, so one week of eating a little extra because you were playing hostess is OKAY! You're still awesome!!

I say you did great!! You even got in some exercise and to me that is a key factor in the whole scheme of things!! Good job!!

I hear you!! I have the same problem when I have people over. I'm going out of town on Thursday and I'm so scared that I'm going to end up eating badly because it's a road trip.
