It's Nutella's Fault

I did great last week!  Not only did I complete all my intentions, I actually maintained EXCELLENT calorie ranges for me.  Woohoo!!  And then came Saturday...

Every time, people.  I certainly don't need any sympathy because it is insane the way I continue to sabotage myself.  I admit that I did not overdose on queso this weekend, so that's great.  BUT...I discovered Nutella.  Now I have had Nutella on dessert pizza or in fondue or some other thing at a restaurant, but I have never had it just at home in a jar.  I needed peanut butter and thought Nutella might be a nice alternative.  HAHAHAHAHA!!!

I can honestly say that I had no will power this weekeing when it came to that stuff.  I have already determined that I will not be buying it again.  And I'm happy to say that at least I got the small jar!!  :)  I will do my best to portion out what's left. 

Okay, now that is all out, I do want to say that I did a few things last week that I'm glad of:
  • Like I mentioned before, Mon-Thurs were stellar and Friday wasn't bad.
  • I finished another book, so that is three for the year.  Right on schedule after lagging behind early!  (11/22/63, The Fault in Our Stars, & Unbroken)  I started Sarah's Key and I've already gotten a good start. 
  • I got a couple of drawers cleaned out.  I crashed and burned when it came to my household organizing goals for the year.  But I don't want to let that keep me from doing SOMETHING.  So, two drawers it is.  It is something.
Here it is, a new week.  I talk to people a lot about weightloss journies.  They talk about how they just can't keep at it and they quit.  I laugh and tell them to read my blog.  I pick myself up and set myself straight almost EVERY SINGLE WEEK! 

I may not be setting any records and I still get frustrated...but for the first time ever, I had two back-to-back years of actual weight loss (small or large).  AND even as I continue to "not lose", I can see changes in my body.  So, I don't want people to see my continued psyching myself up as a loss (the bad kind).  Because to me, it isn't.  Every time I get back on the horse is a win.  Because in the days pre-band, I wouldn't do that.  Well, maybe after I gained 10 or 50 pounds.

So, all you fellow peeps out there that feel like you are treading water:  appreciate the fact that for once, you aren't drowning!!  Onward!


Hmmm...I'm awfully cheerleaderish today.  Ha! 

HUGS!

Nutella is EVIL!!! I'm not brave enough to allow it in my house anymore...

Go Beth Ann! The farther I get along this path, the more I realize it's walking it every single day, there is no finish line. At least now when I mess up I can generally get myself back on track the next meal, instead of the next week!! And nutella is the devil...can't have it in my house, or I'd eat it by the spoon full! Here's to a great week!

Nutella was made by the same guy who made chocolate chex mix. His name is Satan!
I had to put a stop to having it in the house too.

So glad to know I am not the only one wrapped in the evil web that is Nutella. Of course, if I worked out like you do, I wouldn't have to limit my intake quite so severely. :)

To not drowning! :)

And oh em gee, dessert pizza. You're tempting me. :((( I loves dessert pizza. Maybe I should think up some WLS friendly kinds. lol

Yeah people think that nutella is a healthy alternative to peanut butter, but I read that the first two ingredients are sugar and palm oil.
