Weigh-In … TOM

Today’s Weight:  166.0
Loss/Gain: + 2.0
Honestly, the only real negative about this gain is having to post it today.  TOM has arrived, so I’m not surprised at all.  It happens.  
As I told one of my children who got in trouble this week, “This [situation] doesn’t make you a bad person.  You’re a good kid who let [it] get the better of you.  You learn from the mistake and move on.”
Although, I’m not even considering this a mistake.  Yesterday I explained how my week was going and I’m really okay with that.  This is a lifelong journey and I know the scale will go back down soon enough.  
Besides, I’m quite proud of a choice I made this morning…
On a quick trip to the grocery store this morning I saw this new Easter goodie out:
6 oz. of Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg.  It’s huge.
My TOM’y self said, “OH!!! That looks delicious!!”.  But my new ending self said, “You don’t need that much.  It really is too big.” and I grabbed a regular sized pack of peanut butter cups instead … just in case I really get the craving for some.  It’s already tucked away in a drawer for later.  
Don’t judge..I know myself and I’d rather have the one regular pack during this time than sound all self righteous that I skipped it, and end up eating other chocolate today wishing I had just bought the darned candy.  
Thanks for checking in folks!  I do have a sweet NSV to share with you and maybe I’ll get around to posting it later today.  
In the meantime… TGIF!

    I love that you know that you may want something and have planned for it in a positive way.

    Have a great Friday!

    I saw that egg as well. PB mini cups are my complete downfall and I binge on them every time I am around them. My mother asked me what I thought about buying one of those big eggs to have for easter dinner and slicing it up. I told her that she needs to be prepared to throw the rest out if no one eats it. I thought she was going to have a heart attack LOL!


  3. There are so many HUGE Easter/Valentines/Christmas confections around that it is absolutely crazy. I used to really like the peanut butter cups but now they aren't my favorite. I do have other favorites though!
