One sack of potatoes and eight medium cantaloupes

I have done it! I reached the 15 pound weight loss mark! Now just 10 more to go and I will have reached my 10% goal! (meaning I will have lost 10% of my body weight since I started the program a month ago)

While I have found Weight Watchers to be an awesome program with so many options, I still managed to fall off the wagon this weekend. I had a little too much Italian one night and then yesterday's church Superbowl party, I thought it was the right thing to do to try everyone's know, so no one would feel left out. Needless to say that I woke up this morning inflated by sodium and feeling a little down. But I didn't let it last for long because I know the best thing to do is to not let myself feel guilty. I just have to look at how I felt after I ate it and realize that while it was tasty, it was not worth the temporary satisfaction that turned into, "why did I do that?"

Do you ever notice that's how slip up's go? One minute you have determined that you can not live without that piece of cheesecake and after you have devoured it, you almost instantly feel remorse. We fall prey to so many "temporary fixes" that are just that. Temporary. They don't truly satisfy us. That being said, I do feel strongly that you should be able to have that piece of cheesecake or slice of pizza from time to time without the guilt...and I do. I just make sure that I have saved my points.

I still do not have a recent picture of me to show! Jeremy tried taking one for me yesterday but turns out my really pretty babydoll dress didn't do much to show that I have lost anything in the belly area! I will try to post a picture tonight.
