The Scale Doesn’t Lie

by Anne Bennett on September 13, 2009

anne-with-champagneIf anyone needs to know how to gain three pounds in six days, feel free to e-mail me. Today I’m exploring recipes for lowfat granola, and last night on the way home from the airport I stopped at the market, got milk and made yogurt which is chilling this morning in the fridge. Yikes, or as Christine says, Crikey!

I’d like to say that I don’t know how this happened, but, as someone who is supposed to know the ins and outs of eating and drinking responsibly, I feel compelled to confess: I ate and drank too much. There. I’ve said it. I feel so much better.

Honestly, California being the “crunchy” state that it is, we all ate very healthfully. Lots of fresh veggies. Beautiful fruits, albeit many of them fermented ones. Bottom line: too much of a good thing can end up on your waistline. Bummer, isn’t it? But as I like to say in a voice dripping with cheerfulness, “Life is hard and then you die.” Hopefully, though, you can pack in great weeks like the preceding one, with equally great friends, before the grim reaper comes to drag you away from the table. Alas, this morning it’s back to the grind of mindful eating and, horrors, portion control.

P.S.  Was it worth it? Do you even have to ask?

I got you beat! 4 lbs in 3 days, thanks to my mom’s hosting of the family reunion. I’ve definitely been watching things MUCH MUCH more carefully this week and my scale is going back down!

my sympathies to you on your weight gain. I know the pain. I can EASILY gain 4-6 lbs in a weekend depending on the time of the month!!!YUCK At least you had a fabulous time with your friends, including the liquid one!! Now back to reality BOO HISS :-} On a lighter note, I made the turkey breast last week, my boyfriend is still talking about how yummy it was. He wants to have it again soon, that spoken from a man who normally will only eat the dark meat on a turkey or chicken!!! Have a good week and I WILL be at meetings on Sat. as I skipped last week in honor of your vacation. ( I know, shame on me)! Marcie
