Week One: How to Lose Four Pounds and Then Gain Them Back

Alrighty. This past week was a lesson in what not to do to lose weight. The first part of the week, I was great. I ate within my Weight Watchers Points range, and I worked out a bit on the Wii. And then, Gentle Readers.... then, I flew to Washington DC to visit my friend for the weekend.

There was pasta. And tiramisu. And heavens to Betsy if there weren't several coconut cupcakes from Georgetown cupcake. (HIGHLY recommended, if you aren't on a diet.)

I weighed myself before I left for the weekend, and I was down four pounds. I weighed myself this morning, and those four pounds were back.

Moral of the story: I will not be repeating that performance this week. I am more than a little pissed off that I don't get to join in the festivities of celebrating pounds lost this McFatty Monday. Pissed off is actually a great way for me to be when I want something, so I am embracing this state of mind.

Congrats to all those who did a better job than I did this week. And here's a big "I feel ya," to all the ladies that tripped and fell into a cupcake. Let's grab this week by the balls, shall we?


  1. As you know, I'm with you on the FAIL. I did work out tonight and ate well yesterday and today.. (down my water weight at least woot) .. so if you haven't worked out today here is my GO WORK OUT NOWWWWWWWWWWWWW :)

  2. Georgetown cupcakes are THHEEEE BEEEESST! And they're like 7 points each! Oy! I would eat the 5 red velvet cupcakes every single day if I could :) Good luck this week!
