Mother's Day Weight Gain!

Hi there! I've been MIA for a little while.  And, sadly the time that I could have spent blogging was spent eating.  My weight is up and I'm not too happy about it.  A couple of weeks ago, we had a little dinner party with friends and we brought dessert, the following day we hosted a dinner party, lots of yummy's and more dessert.  The left overs spilled into the next week and then Mother's Day arrived in a Sea of wine and chocolates and all things fab. Then a graduation party we hosted last night, more goodies and party foods and wine.  So, I indulged more than I should have and well.  I'm paying for it now.  I really thought that the weight gain was not accurate, 6 pounds! Whatever...but guess what, it went down then back up again.  I'm very disappointed in myself and doing my best to get back on track.  I don't feel well when I eat badly, I don't feel well when I'm judging myself harshly.  I don't feel well when I gain at all! Hello...McFly? So, why do I do that to myself?  Old habits die hard I suppose. 

Mother's Day was really special. My husband treated me like a Queen, my boys were sweet too, I was showered with gifts and good wishes.  I love being a Mom, it is by far the most rewarding thing I've done.  I love my boys and my step children and I hope in the end that I do more things right in the Motherhood department then I do wrong. Here is a picture of me and my handsome sons on Mother's Day.

As far as the weight gain goes, I am disappointed in myself, but it is what it is and beating myself up about it isn't going to get the weight off of me.  It's just time to do what I have to to get that off and the other 30 I want to lose.  I have found in my dieting career that quick on is usually quick off...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Ha ha!

I hope all of you who are Mother's had a wonderful day and I hope you have a great rest of the week.  Today is the Junior Ring Ceremony at my kid's school.  My oldest son and my step-daughter will be seniors! I can't believe it.  Take care!
Big Hugs!

Look ahead and do what you know how to do! Oh, and even do what you know how to do but just haven't done a lot.....exercise! I know if you get your head back in the game and start exercising consistently, you will see the pounds start to melt off. Love you!

Handsome boys you got there! I have been struggling for some time now and am just going back to read some old posts to look for...I don't know...THE answer. Good luck to us both!

Yep...Barbara's have a great life...NOW it's time to get it under control....and you have put it into words which is the hardest part.

Now listening to Jacquie is probably the best way to start the scale moving the other direction.

It must be starting to get hot where you live...don't you think that will make your band start tightening up?

Wishing you success!!!
