The Waffles

We did indeed have waffles for supper last night.  My considerate husband actually bought gluten free pancake/waffle mix.  He knew that carbs were a limited portion of my diet and thought that would be a better choice.  I don't have celiac disease, so it really didn't matter.  It was, however, extremely thoughtful.  And, I must say, the waffles were delicious!!!

He also bought sausage and bacon.  He knew that protein=good, but was a little concerned about the processed meat.  So he bought both.  Yes, I had both last night, and yes, the scales were up this morning.  It was so worth it.  We had a very pleasant evening.

I must confess at this point that the entire weight gain cannot be blamed on that meal.  I pre-cheated all day!  This is another one of those areas where I thought the battle was done.  I can't remember the last time I pre-cheated.  But yesterday, people kept bringing candy to the office!  That is the downside to working in such a generous office.  I succumbed to the pressure and had several pieces of candy.  It happened.  I'm not happy that it happened, but I'm also not that upset about it.

I think this is one of those strange things that happen from time to time.  I'm going to have to remain diligent about the pre-cheating but I haven't spent much time beating myself up over it.  I feel like I'm on track to get the rest of this weight off.  My sister's wedding is April 7.  That is big motivation for me.  I may not be at goal then, but I'll be much closer than I am now.  That's for sure.

I also picked up the 17 day diet book at the library today.  So many of my blog friends have recommended it, and I've been on the wait list forever.  I'm expecting great things.  I can't wait to dig in to it.  65MD has even said he might join  me.


  1. Love the title of your blog. It makes me think I'm in deepest darkest Africa. I guess Dietland is like that.

  2. Ah, well "pre-cheat" is my middle name. So I know of what you speak:) I think that if I splurged for a meal or treat now and then but didn't cheat before and got right back on plan after I'd be fine. That's what I kind of imagine as long-term for me.

    I'll be interested to see what you think of the plan. I probably follow the same bloggers and they are having great success.

  3. Sounds like you've got a sweet hubby. I'm glad you enjoyed your day. And it seems to be that you realize that that was yesterday and this is today. Nice to have a goal ahead. April is coming right up!

  4. I think the term pre-cheat is perfect. Sounds like your husband is very supportive!
