Weight Ain’t Nothin’ but a Number

Posted on 23. Mar, 2009 by in Diet - Food

I never intended for this site to be solely about food and dieting, but guess I just have food issues so it’s been on my mind a lot.

I definitely overate this weekend, but what sucks is that I didn’t just pig out on cake and cookies or anything fun. It was more like, “OK the box says a serving of crackers is 5 crackers” but I wound up eating 20 instead. I am terrible with regular boxes of food. I need the little individual packages, such as the 100-calorie packs, although I ate a 100-calorie pack of Pringles this weekend and decided I needed some more chips and ate a second pack.


I did log on to Weight Watchers and mark down everything I ate, but this morning I made the mistake of stepping on the scale. I typically only check my weight on Fridays, but I felt like a pig so I stepped on anyway. I doubt that I could have really gained 3 pounds between Friday and Monday – it was most likely the fact that I ate salty stuff before bed, but it still irked me.

Sigh. Again.

I wish I didn’t worry about it so much. People tell me, “You look great for just having a baby!” and in my mind, that translates into, “Hey you’re still fat, but that’s OK!”

I know, I know, that’s not the case, I just have issues. LOL … who doesn’t? I know I’m not fat-fat, I just wanna get back down to what I was before the baby.

Today I did a lot better, and I even manged to go 2 miles on the treadmill (it was rainy so I couldn’t walk outside). It’s not as if my body is attached to a scale on rollerskates and everyone can look down and see how much I weigh … although some days that’s how I feel! I doubt I’m alone.

    dude. i’m a solid 200+ pounds. a size 16, sometimes 18. i may be overweight, but my boobs are awesome, my eyes and lips are beautiful, and when i actually put effort into my hair, i still turn heads.
    i think you are gorgeous, before baby, during pregnancy, and after delivery. and i’m not just saying that. if i though you we’re an ugly cow, i wouldn’t say anything.
    those 100 cal packs are the devil. i always ate the whole box. the only way i lose weight is by walking it off, doing pilates, and drinking lots of water. i just don’t have the motivation.
    anyway, everyone is different and if weight watchers works for you, then you know what to do. if you overeat, don’t stress because that will undoubtedly lead to more eating for comfort. lastly, stay away from the scale. you know that’s a no no!!
