Happy Easter Weekend!

We celebrated Amelia's first birthday today with my family and boy did I chow down! Yikes. I just got caught up in all the festivities. I didn't stuff myself, just ate high fat foods. Went to brunch this morning and had eggs benedict, then had hot dogs (ff) and coleslaw and chips for lunch. Then the same for dinner. Oh, and did I mention I also had to have a piece of my delicious carrot cake with cream cheese icing that I made for Amelia???? And vanilla bean ice cream???? I can't remember the last time I had ice cream. Anyhoo, I definitely feel like I didn't make wise choices, but I didn't binge by any means, so I'm proud of that. I think I got it out of my system, so tomorrow's Easter festivities won't be all that tempting.

I haven't weighed myself since mid week. I hope I'm on track. If not, I know the right thing to do is forgive myself and move on. That's the only way to do it. I'm getting used to this whole maintainance thing. It's weird. I sort of suspected that I'd feel a little more freedom to eat "no no" foods this week. All my hard work over the last 11 months has paid off and I'm settling in to enjoy it. I think I just needed one day I could avoid points and just have the freedom to splurge within reason. I'm certainly not intending to eat like this all the time, but once in a blue moon, you have to be able to eat the "no nos." :)

Tomorrow I'm back OP! I'm sure there will be temptations, but I'm a big girl and I can wear my "big girl pants" and have some self discipline. LOL Ed got tickets to The Masters so he'll be gone all day from sun up to sun down. So it's Easter with the kids alone. :( But I know Ed loves it and those tickets are nearly impossible to get, so I'm trying to be a good sport about it. We're planning on meeting up with Ed's family, so I'll have some help. I won't be able to get a run in tomorrow and that's one thing I really want to do.

I found your blog thru a friend of a friend. Thanks for your great inspiration. It makes me realize that it is possible to lose weight, although not easy. Thanks so much for your example and hope all goes well with the maintaining.
