    Bad Eating Week

    By Thomas | February 16, 2008

    This week I didn’t eat so well.  Maybe I got overconfident with my large lead in the contest, maybe I subconsciously felt I was losing weight too fast or maybe I was just weak-willed this week - but for whatever reason, I ate like a pig.

    First, on Monday I made Swedish pancakes for breakfast.  The recipe calls for 6 eggs, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of sugar, a little butter and lingonberry preserves.  I ate half of them and my wife ate the other half.


    Then Valentine’s Day rolls around and my wife baked me a chocolate apple cake.  It was awesome.  I also got some little chocolates (I didn’t eat them all, but I ate some).

    Today was a nightmare.  We went to the mall and I ended up eating a double scoop waffle cone from Baskin Robbins.  Then we had tacos for dinner and I ate 6 of them.  Six tacos was the portion size I used to eat before I started losing weight!

    I hope the scale is nice to me tomorrow morning.

      A Terrible Week Of Eating | Two Fat Brothers.com…

      What do Swedish Pancakes, Chocolate Apple Cake, a double-scoop waffle cone from Baskin Robbins and six enormous tacos have in common? They are all things I ate this week, despite being on a diet in competition with my brother. Official weigh-ins are …

      No worries. Happens to the best of us. Tomorrow’s another day. Another egg-free, cake-free, ice cream-free, taco-free day. Maybe wait a day before you get on that scale!

      @Kathy: Yes, tomorrow is another day, because today I ate Swedish pancakes again! :). My weigh-in this morning was actually better than average despite my bad week in terms of food. I think my secret weapon is going to allow me to be more lax with my diet (although I still want to control what I put in my body). This next week I’m going to eat healthy all week.

      Weight loss is about perseverance, not willpower or perfection. Keep on pushing Thomas.

      @Dr. Kal: Thanks for the encouragement! You are right that perserverance is key, although I think that willpower is a part of it too: at least at first when you are aiming to change your long-ingrained bad habits. Once you get the new healthier habit formed though, I think willpower recedes in importance.

      I’m going to keep on pushing!

      I adore Swedish Pancakes! I don’t blame you for indulging every once in a while. Just get back on track, you get a clean slate every day!
