Gained back two pounds. Yikes.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

I gained back two pounds. I am pissed (at myself). I have a habit of stopping and having a slice of pizza. I gave that up the first few weeks of my life style change, but now I find myself stopping to get that slice again. Ugh. It is hard to give up things I enjoy, even if those things are not good for me.

Time to double down and focus. Focus is a Cornerstone of the SparkPeople system. I will read up this cornerstone and see if it offers me any insights that can guide me away from pizza. If it doesn't offer any guidance "will-power" will have to do it.

    Hi SUNSHINE6442, Thank you for your wise comments. I didn't think of the sodium and water weight. I will pay more attention to that.

    The cheese probably has a lot of sodium...probably water weight. Tomato sauce has sodium as well as the crust....track you sodium intake on's an eye's at the bottom of your nutrition page where it says...add more nutrients...if you try to stay around 1500mg of sodium you will see weight loss.

    Hi ALEXESQ33, If I was taking that train I would have done the same thing.

    Change is good, but difficult to do at times.

    WOW that was my weakness - I used to have a 1 hour train ride after work and in the departure train station was delicious pizza. So I'd have a slice and a soda, or iced tea. Every day! Then I'd go home and have dinner.
    Really glad I don't have that job or commute anymore because that was a diet killer for sure.
    You'll get back on track!
