I was disappointed with my weigh in this morning - I gained almost a half a pound since last week. I knew I wasn't quite as "good" this week but I was hoping for even a tiny loss, not a gain.
It's tough being a foodie. I love to cook....and I love good food. I can't help it, it's in my blood.
And there was a small issue with some amazing chocolates that my sweetie gave me for Christmas.
I mean, come on - look at these!! Have you ever seen such beautiful chocolates?
This is from a company called Christopher Elbow - I read about them a few years back and ordered a gift box for my sweetie for Valentine's Day.
And we were hooked.
This is the holiday collection that we've been working our way through, slowly. The round ones are a soft caramel center with the flavors indicted and the square ones are more of a truffle.
Every one of them is amazing. My favorites are the soft centers, but my sweetie prefers the truffle centers.
We try to limit our intake of treats like this, and this box is still around and not finished yet so we're doing pretty good.
But then sweetie opened a bar of white chocolate from the same company - also part of their holiday collection. Eggnog flavored.
And I thought I died and went to heaven.
I think that was my downfall this week.
That and the rice pudding. It was sooooooo good. I may have indulged just a little too much.
But you know what? Today is a whole new day.
And next week I'll hope for a better weigh in.
I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I'm still down 4.4 lbs in only 2 weeks.
Making progress....baby steps.
Just keep on keepin' on.
