Just Another Day. Just Another Binge.

Sorry that I've been so sporadic lately. I get busy!

Yesterday started out as a great day. Even though my roommate and I did our little traditional stop at Bagel Mania to get our unhealthy toasted bagel with butter and a diet coke breakfast that we love, we also went to the gym and worked out hard...and ate salads in the afternoon. So I was feeling pretty good about things. I've been tracking all week and I've started to notice that I'll have a big point day, followed by a small point day. Of course it's only been a week, so it's hard to determine if this was just a coincidence that happened this week or if it's really a true pattern of my eating, but regardless, yesterday was set to be a small point day. And I was right on track with that. By 6 pm I'd had 17 points- well under my range and feeling confident and great. Then we went to a wedding reception for some of our friends. And things proceeded to get ugly.

The problem was that I got stressed about the bouquet toss (I HATE bouquet tosses) and ended up hiding in the kitchen with some wedding cake to avoid it. After that, I felt the "what the hell I've already messed up" feeling settled in and I proceeded to have a few more treats...consisting of things like- chocolate dipped marshmallows, coconut something or other heaven, a little bit of oreo milkshake and some hot chocolate. After the reception was over (and I was SO thankful to be out of there)...some of our friends came down from LA and we ended up at the Harbor House...eating diner food at 1 am. I wanted someone to kill me. Instead I killed my diet with a short stack covered in butter and syrup.

This morning I woke up with a tire around my waist. I don't know how it got there over night, but it's there. UGH.

Anyway, here's a picture from the wedding reception last night with some of my great friends. I'm in the black, with the red skirt. It was before the bouquet toss, when I was still feeling cute and confident...with a piece of gum in my mouth and no desire for wedding treat hell. BTW, I got a new haircut too, as I'm sure you can see. :)

Trying to get there! I have dinner plans tonight with another foodie friend of mine who is getting married next month. She LOVES to cook- she owns a restaurant, and everything she makes is heaven. I always eat too much. She's making Baked Ziti and I'm terrified. Weigh in is looming on the horizon. Wish me luck-



  1. OH, Diz, you look sooo cute! Sorry about the wedding reception--but under the best circumstance wedding food is pretty hard to resist. Next time, saving your bonus ooints for that event would solve the problem. but, you know that.

    The roll will leave--must be bloat and water weight. Too soon to be anything else.


  2. Good grief Diz..I know I've told you this before, but you are seriously g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. And I LOVE your new haircut. So pretty!

  3. Kenz, Deb- you're my favorites! I love you both- thank you thank you sooo much. I wouldn't keep this up if it weren't for you two!!! xoxoxoxo
