BBB Round 2: Week 4

Remember how excited I was about my weight loss accomplishments last week? Yeah. That was nice.

Apparently, I jinxed myself because this week I didn't lose anything. Nothing. Nada. Not even .1 pound.  Of course, that might have something to do with the plethora of restaurant meals I ate. Wendy's. Penn Station. And let's not forget Cracker Barrel and its biscuit topped pot pie.

All wonderfully healthy options, wouldn't you agree?

What can I say? When the deadlines stack up and the stress piles on, it gets hard to eat well. Especially when you live in the backwaters of America, as I do, on the side of town where the populace seems to live on fast food and not much else (I am often horrified by the carts in Kroger. Who knew there was that much frozen fried food out there?).

What's that, you say? Enough with the excuses? Okay.

I'll just resolve to do better. Starting tomorrow. Right now, the in-laws are in town, which means another Search for More Food. I'm trying to make good choices, but those choices are still being made in bulk.

Wish me luck.

Now it's your turn. Who has good news...or a confession to make?


  1. I had a big ole Dairy Queen sundae this week.....but I didn't eat all of it! So I must be getting better at this stuff. I feel you on having no healthy restaurants. Thankfully we have a Subway in between McDs, BurgerK and all the fried chicken and BBQ joints.

  2. I'm up one, but I weighed myself the day I got my period....blah! Doesn't count, right?

  3. e, it absolutely doesn't count. Not a bit.

    @Tiffany, half a Dairy Queen is way better than a whole one - and hard to do. Go you!

  4. Amber - that's ok - we all take a few steps back sometimes - and yes - it's hard when you don't have many healthy options around. Keep on keeping on Sister!

  5. Whenever I slip up with eating, I always think of the saying, "tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life" thinking that if you start back to healthy eating tomorrow, no worries.


  6. I worked so stinkin' hard to hit the big 5-0... I finally hit it - for about 5 seconds. But that's all that counts! For the rest of the week I seemed to bounce between 47-50 lbs lost. Not sure what all the fluctuation is about, but I'll always have that one moment when the scale told me I'd reached a MAJOR accomplishment! (Still got a ways to go though...)

  7. Check out my blog today - I just started Fitness mags Better Body after baby and I am going to freakin do this this time! Its almost shorts and tank top season and I REFUSE to cover up or buy more clothes!!! C'mon - we can do this together!!
