Day 18- yep, you gotta pay at some point...

weigh in:  174.2 lbs
gain of:  0.6 pounds

Total loss to date:  16.0 pounds

Okay, yes I am disappointed, but I knew at some point I was going to have to deal with the consequences of cheating.  You just can't cheat! :)  And, no matter how many times I do this diet or read it from others... I always have to relearn and relearn that one on my own.  However, yesterday I ate cleanly and had no inklings towards cheats and I am going to get out of these 170's if it is the last thing I do! :) 

I still have 28 days left so I am not worried about a minor setback.  I can do this!  I want to do this!  So all things considering, gain and all I am feeling pretty positive.  Also, wanted to say thanks to Karyn and Sunny, I will try to concentrate on the successes rather than slip ups here and there- and here is to finishing strong!  :)    


  1. I had a setback this weekend too. Weekends are so hard! Great outlook on it.. right back to protocol & you'll be out of the 170's in no time!

  2. Good advice - you are doing great!! :) Keep it up!

  3. It wasn't until I came to the realization that cheating was just cheating myself that I really started making some solid progress on my weight-loss journey.

    I still know lots of folks who have incorporated "cheat days" as part of their program; that just seems so counter-intuitive to the bigger picture, but I guess different strokes for different folks.

    Good luck and keep up the great work!
