No you aren’t seeing a typo. My weight remained exactly the same this week as it did last week. I did the exercises that I needed to do (with the exception of yesterday’s rain, and I kept my meal plan.
I think the difference is in the extra valentine’s treats. There was chocolate mousse, fruit tarts, and caramel in the house. In addition there were goodies sent from two separate mothers making up for a year of long distance holidays. I did a fairly good job avoiding most of the items, but there were just a few temptations that called to me.
That’s right, I’m blaming the peanut butter fudge.
It is sweet, it is salty and since I don’t make fudge it is rare that we have it in the house. And it is so good.
But a lot of the treats were sent to my babydoll’s work and a bunch more were put into the freezer to be portioned out slowly. But it does mean that despite my meal planning extra calories crept in this week. I am glad that since I put in the work, I at least managed to stay on an even plane instead of gaining. For this week, I think that might just be considered a victory.
Or at least I am calling it a victory.
Tonight we have the small indulgence of Happy Hour and then on Sunday we will be having Chateaubriand. My baby requested it. Apparently the Beef Wellington of New Years got him thinking about other fancy meat dishes he wants for special occasions. And he had to be thinking about it for a while too. When I asked him if there was anything special he wanted for valentine’s day, he didn’t dither. Usually when I ask about a meal he has to think about it a while. This time. I asked and Chateaubriand popped out of his mouth like a cork from an overly shaken bottle of champagne.
And so that is what we will be having.
I may try to add in a couple of extra walks next week to try and balance things out.
But first this week’s stats:
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 218.4 lbs
This week’s weight:218.4 lbs
Lost this week: 0.0 lbs
Lost thus far: 27.6 lbs
So no loses this week due to the influx of sweets, but at least there were no gains. It is slightly disappointing, but it is nice to know I at least managed to hold my own. That is something I can be proud of.
