Sheryl, our WW instructor was back today from her five week trip to China. She weighed me in. “Were you expecting this?” Showing me the verdict. +2.2 lbs. That was my gain for the week.
I’ve been complaining of the fact that it took 8 weeks for me to get rid of the 5 lbs. I gained while we had a break in our session. For a new WW starter, 5 lbs. is normally what one loses in a week. And here I am, it took me 2 months to get back to my weight when the last session ended. And it’s been a difficult climb since then. Getting rid of the fat is like my own climb to Mt. Calvary, so many obstacles and too many falls.
Of course I wasn’t expecting to gain that much. But I knew what brought me there. As I recall I had one baby (individual) deep dish pizza when Karen came for a visit. I had one too many of the Pringles one night while watching tv. Although I’ve been bringing salad for lunch, I’m almost famished by the time I get home and I’d dig for more rice than usual. They said don’t eat if you’re full, I had a taste for microwave popcorn the other night, after dinner and I ate the whole bag! The new sandwich they offered at Corner Bakery when Mary and I met, seemed to be calling my name and tempting – slices of chicken breast, grilled red pepper, slices of avocado sandwich with a freshly baked wheat bread – crispy on the outside and soft in the inside with some peppery spices. A sandwich that good doesn’t wait for another meal to be finished, otherwise it’ll become soggy and unappetizing. Me thinks, isn’t that right?
And I almost forgot, Mom cooked pancit one morning. That must have been Saturday and pancit being one of my favorite comfort foods, I could eat it anytime. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. It must have been a few days before we finished it all. And tomorrow, I’m going to Wi’s church for the Seven Last Words and later I heard they are having a get together. THERE is another challenge!
