kingkeld's Journal, 04 December 2011

Wow. Just wow. Last night we had Christmas Cult Movie Night. Wife made turkey dumpling soup and it was awesome.

We had guests over and it was a great evening. However, I made a decision. I needed a night where I would just let go of my weight loss journey. It's been so long since I haven't counted and measured, and I just needed a day off. So I made a conscious decision to do so, and as I recap my food intake to the best of my abilities today, I see that I probably reached about 5000 calories! DAMN! lol. It definitely teaches me the lesson of moderation!

It was an awesome evening, and there are absolutely no regrets. It was fun, and I needed it. I know that there is a real fat gain as a result of this day, but I'm okay with it. I can lose it again in a few days.

Today, I am 100% back on track.

Today, I am thankful for a great evening last night.
Today, I am thankful that I will be able to just go back on track on my weight loss journey.
Today, I am thankful for my awesome wife who helped make yesterday a wonderful day.

Life is good!

I'm glad you had such an awesome evening, Keld.

I really find it hard to do what you did. Even when I tried the 'spike' diet (w/ the old member Russell) - I couldn't do it. I generally can't just eat the stuff I used to eat. My mind, or my body, or something...just won't let me. Oh, I can have a bite of this, or even one item...but when push comes to shove...not a whole day. And in a way, kinda glad about that. I don't want to ever go back to my old ways w/ 'blinders' on... and just not pay attention. I think my brain is not wired that way. But I do understand the mental fatigue and just looking for the 'respite' of a day off! Glad you took one w/ friends and enjoyed yourself! Much Love.

@Jsfantome - I generally don't do it either. I just had a fun night where I didn't feel like counting everything, and I felt like having things that I'd sometimes miss a little. 99% of the time I don't really have these urges for the bad foods, so yesterday was very unusual. And looking at the calorie count for yesterday I won't be doing it anytime soon again. :)

Wow!!! So strange I came right here after writing my journal and I did the SAME THING you did!!! Maybe we are related??? LOL!!!! I enjoyed myself immensely and strangely enough feel pretty darned positive about the whole experience. Have I lost my mind??? I know many will think I have but I actually feel okay about it. I made a choice. I knew exactly what I was doing. I am glad I have good company along this journey though ... so glad I ran into you here!!! Have a wonderful day new buddy!!!

Pleasure is all mine, Moose. I think what's most important when it comes to the weight loss mission is that we go back to our "good ways" after a day like this. Especially if we go extra nuts. I think it keeps us sane to do every now and then, and I'm not gonna beat myself up over it. The main issue is that I'm doing good today, not going over my calories and I feel that I have control.

Me too!!! I feel strangely energized today. Like I could do anything today. I'm actually excited about staying within my calories today. I enjoyed the cake, the cashews, the hummus and pita chips, the two oreos I ate ... the big sandwich I had at lunch with two slices of bread, the dinner my hubby prepared for us. While I know I went over my feast day calories it isn't a big deal. I can get back on track and carry on. In the past I would have taken a day like yesterday and it would have turned into a week, a month, maybe more, of excesses. I can indulge I am in control. (Maybe it is the after effect of all those foods ... maybe I'm high off calories!!! ... LOL!!!)

Oh oh oh ... Kingkeld and Moose played hooky! LMAO! Not only played hooky but like two giggling naughtly children... are telling all their friends what they did! I LOVE IT! I have to say.. I think it is refreshing to know that you guys are human! I have been feeling the same way and except for eating over my RDI yesterday, ... ahem .... I was still very low carb. Go figure. But... three cheers for you fabulous evening and glad to see you are all refreshed and ready to jump back on plan. Have a great day!

Must have been the moon yseterday! GEEZE I had half a plate of fries and gravy. Its been months and months and I really made a choice to eat them- enjoyed every bite and knew i was starting a whole new regimine today and had the "last supper" thought...lol So cheers to us and our being bad. I have no guilt about it at all. I ate well today and kicked ass with my P90X.
