A Weigh, A Weigh, A Weigh Down South in Dixie ~ Week Two

Good new and bad news again...

Let's start with the good news this week.  I did NOT forget to use up my extra weekly food points.  I didn't use all of them but I did use most of them.

I indulged in a Panera Bread Pumpkin Muffin. Not the Pumpkin Muffy (which is just the muffin top). The real muffin.  Can you guess how many WW food points it was?

I would not have guessed correctly and I almost wish I hadn't looked up the number of food points it was.  The Panera Bread Pumpkin Muffin equals 24 food points.  That is more than one day's worth of food points.

I did, however, only eat half on Saturday and then the other half on Sunday. It was tough eating just half and saving the other half because it was so delicious!  But I did and on Sunday I was glad that I did even though it was a little stale.  But take a bite and sip some hot coffee and there ya go ~ good as new!
Now for the bad news...

I weighed myself and only lost 1/2 a pound.  I know I should celebrate ANY amount of weight loss but after losing 2 1/2 lbs last week, I was disappointed in the 1/2 pound.  I'm wondering if that pumpkin muffin did it.

I do need to remember: (my husband tells me this)

Dieting/losing weight is a marathon not a sprint.

And my daughter, the doctor, says that losing weight slowly is much healthier than losing it quickly.  And so I'm telling myself this a few times today.  And I think it will be a long time before I have another Panera Bread Pumpkin Muffin.

What sweet have you indulged in lately?

  1. Both your husband's thought and your daughter's are very good advice. We don't put on the weight overnight, so it will take a while to take it back off. I know this because I'm trying to much more sensibly now. Half a pound is still half a pound, my sweet friend. What sweet have I indulged in lately? Homemade from scratch overnight cinnamon rolls. I'm sharing the recipe on the blog tomorrow.

  3. Well even a half a pound is progress. I am trying to lose about ten to fifteen pounds and it is harder as we get older.

  6. It's hard to give up everything, Gina!, but you restrained yourself and didn't eat the whole muffin in one day. However, you still lost weight, and that IS good news!!

  8. Don't give up Gina. I know half a pound may not seem like much but like the ladies said, half a pound is progress.

  9. I know how frustrating it can be, I hate when I lose weight and all it takes is eating out one time and I have gained it all back, sometimes it is water weight gain and if I eat right the next few days I will lose it again, but losing any kind of weight is a good thing and you are going in the right direction. I had a cookie dough custard at Freddy's, I knew I shouldn't but it sounded so good. Say goodbye to last week and start over, this is a new week :)

    1. Connie, good advice! I do love custard but I don't think I've had cookie dough custard. Sounds tempting!

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
