One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Argh.

So, not only has my weight stablized, but it's crept back UP. Well, not really--it's now just a pound lighter than the post where I said I'd lost eight pounds. Humph. I should have taken BestFriend's advice--she said, "Your roommate may have healthier advice, but if I were you I'd just take the money and run." But I didn't. Thinking I was in the clear and that nothing could stop me, I indulged in pizza and iced vanilla lattes, and before I knew it (i.e., in one day), I was back up to where I was. I'm trying to convince myself that I'm building muscle, not putting on pounds of pizza and vanilla fat, but I think we all know that's ridiculous.

On that note, though, I have three questions:

1) Should I have some oatmeal to tide me over this morning, and then have a late lunch, as I'm used to?

2) Why doesn't Starbucks include the nutritional information of their plain crossaints? (Yes, I had one today. I was in a huge hurry. So sue me.)

3) How did I entirely miss the appointment of Attorney General Gonzalez?

Baffling, I tell you.

Double ouch. I find that when I pig out even if the scale doesn't show it my body does and it does catch up with me. Water, lots of water.

I do have 1 today... starbucks = evil empire... they don't want you knowing what the nutritional content is, then you might not buy the croissant next time...

RG, you're brilliant. Such an obvious answer, and yet so correct! Thank you. :)

just remember that it takes 3500 extra calories to gain a real pound of fat.. BUT only one pound of flour will make you retain 4 pounds of water..

kt, who says you can't learn anything useful on the internet? That's damn good to know!

I don't think a day or two of croissants will make you gain weight if you balance it with three days of starvation.....but I suppose that isn't really healthy. Maybe that's why I feel so bad? Hmmm....?

ramblin' girl said...

ha, ha. yep, that's me, brilliant...

Funny, sherri, that's exactly what I do. Really. Who says it's not healthy? I'm still breathing! :)
