Day 12 HCG Diet
Wednesday, January 18, 2017
I did so good while I was away, but the Monday after we got home, we went to Applebees for my son's birthday. I did not want to order anything unhealthy. My son turned to me and said, "Mommy, for my birthday can you eat like normal? Not like diet stuff, but like you used to?" I should have said, "No. I need to eat healthy so that I can lose weight and become more healthy." Instead, I ordered the chicken finger basket with cheese fries. I only ate 2 chicken fingers from it. I ate most of the fries. Then the kicker... dessert. I ordered the Triple Chocolate Meltdown. I paid for it though. I skipped breakfast (because I woke up too late) and Applebees was our late lunch. I was still stuffed at Dinner time so I did not eat. When I woke up the next day I was 2.4 lbs heavier... 248 lbs. How disappointing but understandable. I told him that when we go to my parents house for dinner and cake that I will not be eating unhealthy! I told him that was the one unhealthy dinner and the rest of the time I will keep myself on track. I was going to let myself have a small piece of birthday cake with him, but not anymore, I know I won't enjoy it. I would just feel horrible because I know it is basically sabotaging myself. I have until June before anyone else has a birthday and you can bet your butt I am not cheating like that again. I should have had a healthy dinner and took a bite of dessert from someone! As of this morning I am at 247.8. Only a .2 loss from yesterday. I was losing a pound a day before the birthday blunder... Hopefully now that I am eating right I will go back to losing more. Just hoping that I didn't really mess things up. I guess I will have an idea by tomorrow. The only change today was that I was running late because my youngest was running a fever so I did not have breakfast. Well going to go for now. Will write again when I get a chance!
