This week I found out how I cheated myself out of a good weight loss…and I’m not proud. I thought I could get away with eating something that I knew wasn’t on my plan, but I paid for it, financially and on the scale.
Last week I talked about how I was resisting temptations (for the most part) and that other part really came back at me this week. Remember yesterday when I told you about how Howard and I spend our mornings together and one of those stops we make is to pick up breakfast? Well, I guess I wasn’t completely honest about what I actually eat. I do only eat the innards of a breakfast burrito, but I failed to mention that part of those innards is CHEESE. Cheese is like my chocolate when I can’t have chocolate. I have a strong weakness to cheese and I explain it to myself that cheese is part of a food group and good for me. But, the big problem with cheese is that it is NOT on my eating plan. I affected my weight loss this week.
Cheese is my downfall…
I lost 0.4 lbs this week!
Howard had to work again so he didn’t go with me to weigh in. I am hoping that he cleared up that schedule problem with his work finally and that he will be able to join me next week.
For this week, I’m cutting the cheese (ha!) on my breakfast burrito innards and nixing the cheese on my Apple Cranberry Chicken Salad from Whataburger at lunch. I’m not going to be cheating myself out of a good weight loss again this week. I WILL be strong!
