OOOOOhhhhh boy...okay, I said I wanted accountability and so I have to say I really fudged my points yesterday!

It is no excuse...that I was visiting family for Easter weekend...my husband has to work this morning so we visited for two days. Thank God it was only two!
The first day I did really well. I had brought along my own snacks and my mom really worked with me in making a reasonable dinner.

We had seasoned grilled chicken breast/1 cup mashed potatoes/two cups broccoli/ two unsweetened apple sauce cups and diet coke. It was satisfying and filling!
I still had two pts. left by that night and we watched a movie and I had a cup of popcorn and a pudding cup.

THE NEXT DAY did not go as well...
My dad made a traditional holiday breakfast and they specifically had it that day to share it with my husband and I...It was an 11pt. breakfast!
AND I knew that we were going out for dinner with my husbands mom and sister that night...so I was going to try to save points...
by 1:30pm I was REALLY hungry and I was visiting a friend...I had brought snacks with me ...I had one cup popcorn, and a jello ...then at 2pm she was eating this barbacue chicken sandwhich and nuts and I had another jello and actually ate a small tomato!
Twice I ate a couple of nuts...then DINNER...
We went to Don Pablos Mexican Restaurant...I had printed out a gluten-free suggestion list...
I tried to eat small reasonable things, but secretly knew I was going to dip outside my points...I ordered One cup Classic Tortilla Soup, Side Salad, and Spoon Bread . There was a screw up with our order and I was getting soooo hungry and I ate like...five tortilla chips with salsa...and diet coke....I was totally full but a little disappointed ....

I think that the worst decision I made was the breakfast thing...I should have just eaten my cereal with milk and had the strawberries my mom bought...and then I could have had a more substantial thing at lunch time and thus would not have been so starved and frustrated entering dinner.

Well, today is a new day and I am home now and trying to focus on my food menu and not look at the huge basket of candy I made up for my sister -in-law who is visiting :-)
But as I said I am at home and I have easy access to my own gluten-free/WW stash of goodies....hopefully I will be strong :-)

Good Luck all!
I would say it is good to focus more on portions because then at least if you go a little overboard it is not like this wild binge....AND I would also say...when you wake up start over and don't look back!

HAPPY EASTER!!!!!

"When you wake up, start over, and don't look back"

Excellent advice! You had a high day, but that doesn't mean it has to hurt you. I have found that the occasional mess-up helped by preventing a plateau. Don't make a habit of it, but don't dwell on it or keep kicking yourself for it!

Thanks DESSA

I really owe it to you admitting awhile back that the point is to focus on portions and excirsise more than points!


Things like holidays, visiting other people, other people visiting you, and eating out are kind of difficult ...I remember that the last time I did WW even though I was not gluten-free at the time this was my downfall as well.
When I started it was Thanksgiving and I was so proud of myself for doing so well on a holiday. I did not lose but I did not gain either...I did pretty well for the next few months and then I started going gluten-free and couldn't do both at the same time. THEN when I tried to combine both a year later my downfall came while my husband and I were away for the weekend for my birthday/our anniversery...I started out fudging points...kind of estimating...then I felt like it was hopelessly unorganized by that point and I felt sooo restricted and I just wanted to enjoy myself and not think about calculating diet points...and gave in ...when I got home I was so disappointed in myself I did not try again until now...

Any advice about the struggle of holidays, visitors, and eating out -my problem is balancing points for the day/being disciplined/organized etc.

"Any advice about the struggle of holidays, visitors, and eating out -my problem is balancing points for the day/being disciplined/organized etc."

The only advice I have to offer on this is to eat a large salad/fruit plate before the main course, and try using smaller plates/bowls. I used to have a day care, and had kiddy size dishes. I found it easier to control portion sizes by using the smaller dishes. Noshing on the 0 point veggie tray and the 1 pt fruit platter meant eating less fatty food at the main course. Also try little things like premeasuring a pat of butter for your potatoes, or a packet of sugar instead of a spoonful. Things like this stop me from overusing, which cuts calories in a somewhat painless way!

I went to the Yahoo group, and one of the ladies has figured out points-values for some of the gluten-free flours. I figured it all up, and just one of my pancakes is around 10 points!! And that is without butter, syrup, or jam! I was eating one every day, and some days two! :o ! I will have to make smaller pancakes! :(

DESSA before you mourn the loss of enjoying pancakes see if you can buy Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Pancake Mix!!!
The pancakes are only like 1 pt. each and are soooo delicious!!!
Check your local supermarkets, like their organic sections and their cereal sections ...more and more stores are keeping some type of all natural section...
Check your local health food market, sometimes the independent ones if they do not have cirtain things will order them for you...although you may have to buy more then one...but I guess then just prepare to stock up...especially if you like them that often it is worth it! Each package lasts quite awhile ...well, it makes a feakin' lot of pancakes anyway!!!
Good luck !

Dessa...I keep mentioning this...you were the one who encouraged me about proper focus ...I KNOW it is difficult...
That must be frustrating and uncomfortable. :(

But listen...You know that you have been doing the right thing by your body. The point is to be healthy.
By your portions, exersising, and food choices you should be VERY proud of yourself!
Each week will vary, we all know that is life with our (fallen) human bodies ;) right?

You know how ready you are to whip this ...so ....Whip it! ( Whip it good! <singing> lol)

With everyone having a tough first week I am really hoping you all will be there for me when I have my tough weeks..although this week was not it for me, I do empathize, as we have stated before we have all been here before!
I ran out of time while getting ready for work yesterday and forgot to get back on to post my wiegh in....

I weighed in at 200lbs.
So that is -6lbs.

Thank you for your support...let's keep going ladies!!!

We all are doing this whole things living different lifestyles as well, like family situations, locations, different malfunctions of the body to deal with etc. So, hopefully as with being gluten-free...sometimes it is really tough and you want to throw in the towel...but being healthy is more important!


Please cheer up ladies and let's start fresh in this new day...
