WEEK 5 - To Err Is Human (and Happy Valentines!)

WEEK 5 | February 14, 2012 | Weight: 292.4 lbs | Loss of 1.2 lbs | Total Loss 18.2 lbs

This week I lost 1.2 pounds and that is nothing to cry about.  Though I do feel a sense of guilt for my recent activities this past weekend and I consider this loss (that being my smallest loss since I began) to be a result of those activities.

On Friday, we had our typical eat out at the local Donair shop.  I had a Super size one instead of the regular.  This wouldn't have been too bad except for what came next.  On Saturday, we were planning on having some friends over which we had not seen in a very long time.  The plan was to go out to Boston Pizza for dinner and then home for a few drinks and some games.  I carefully planned my dinner at Boston Pizza to ensure I did not go over my calorie limit.  Everything worked out as planned until the drinks started to flow later in the evening.  I had budgeted a few drinks and a couple of finger food snacks but along came 4:00 in the morning and I had way more drinks and way more finger foods than I should have.  A great time was had by everyone all the same but I don't think my eating helped.

To further this weekends gorge fest, the very next day my wife and I went to the movies.  We saw "The Woman in Black" which by the way had a crappy plot but the scares were quite good.  At the movies I had a large movie fries with gravy and a large chicken tenders.  Yikes!  I fully believe I can still eat these things, but I should have had smalls and I should have also done it on a different weekend than one with BP's and a Donair!

So while I feel a sense of guilt about this weekend, I had a great time, I still showed a loss this week so To Err is Human!  Now I shall pick myself back up and chalk it up as a lesson learned!


  1. The difference between where we WERE, and where we want to GO is in the fact we can realize and accept that we WILL faulter. These things will happen, and so long as they're not happening on a regular basis I don't think you can/or should beat yourself up over it.

    Yes, you probably "should" have done this, and probably "should" have done that... You realize it now and I guarantee will have an easier time next time downsizing or controlling impusles (although doing that after a few drinks is impossible) *lol*

    That being said, congrats on the overall LOSS this week and keep itu p!


    1. Totally right. I logged a loss and that's great. It's certainly a learn as you go thing. There's those of us that learn it and move on and those that won't. I'm going to be one of those that learn and move on!
