Over the weekend, I ate what was prepared and tried not to freak out about the number of carbs. I believe that that indulgences should be a part of a healthy eating plan but this was beyond that. I did not pig out. I just didn't have good options. One meal was an Italian Feast. Need I say more?
I ate small portions including small amounts of dessert. Honestly, I could have done better, but at the same time, I feel good about my choices. I could have used the weekend to throw caution to the wind and eat up. I deliberately opted not to. It wasn't that hard. Especially since I was allowing myself very carefully selected treats.
I gained 8 lbs. I don't feel bloated and gross like I have in times past when I've simply had too much. Obviously gaining that much weight in that short of time screams water. Add to that, the fact that I don't feel like I've been beaten I have to agree.
Yet, I ate carbs including sugar, so I will have to detox. I started today by fasting. I had to. I had to jump in the deep end of the pool with both feet. The wedding is over and life is returning to its typical pattern. This is a clear sign to my digestive system that it is time to get back to the business of weight loss.
It will, and I'll document it here.
