I may have sabotaged myself this week. Here. Let me show you something…
That, folks, is the nutrition information label for one of the “fun size” candy bars found in a Halliween candy mix. I bring it up because, thanks to my son’s generosity and people at work getting rid of excess candy, I have inadvertently eaten a shocking amount of calories. All under the illusion of “how bad could it be”?
The answer: surprisingly bad. Not bad enough that I’m concerned about gaining a lot of weight, but bad enough that I doubt I’ve lost any this week. (There were also a few family crises that made getting all of my exercise in…)
Am I upset about the prospect? Well, it depends on what you mean. Certainly I’ll be disappointed if I just maintain again. But, hey. This is a lifestyle change, not a race to hit some sort of arbitrary deadline. Maintenance, in that perspective is still important.
Still, I won’t be particularly upset if I’m wrong and I’ve lost weight. That would still be nice.
