Last year, I pulled an April Fool’s joke on you guys and gals on April 2nd, but this year, the scale pulled a serious prank on me. I had no idea an April Fool’s prank could be programmed into a scale. It has to be a prank! There is no way the scale could show me a number that high without it being a prank!
Here is a link to my prank last year. https://lost100pounds.wordpress.com/2011/04/02/
As I type this, I am not even sure I will post my weight, because nobody would believe the number is anything other than a April Fool’s prank.
I’ve been using the end of the competition and my birthday celebration as an excuse to go crazy since last Wednesday. I had a terrible Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Blows my mind that I could gain as much weight as I did in just 3 days.
I am certainly feeling the fool looking at the scale this morning. I should have stopped after seeing the insane jump in my weight yesterday, but I kept chowing down and here I sit today with a MASSIVE gain in just a few days. Sure, a lot of it is sodium and water related but a big chunk is real fat gain.
Ugh!!! I stopped blogging for a few days and that gave me the opening to go stark raving cookie monster MAD! MAD, I tell you, MAD!
Yup. I was a raving lunatic of food consumption!
Breakfast – Turkey Burger with cheese
Lunch – Fruit Medley – Bananas, pears, plums, oranges

Friday Off The Rails
Breakfast – Turkey burger and fruit
Lunch – DONUTS LOTS OF DONUTS
Dinner – GIANT Grilled Chicken Caesar
Snack – More Fruit
Calories – Unknown
Darn donuts got me!!! There were four boxes. I avoided them for three hours. Unfortunately, by 10:30, two boxes still remained and my willpower crumbled. I wish I could say I ate just one. Or two. Or three. 😛
‘There was a ton of chicken and Caesar salad left over from Wednesday which I brought home from work for dinner. Super salty and loaded with high calorie dressing.
Even Worse Than Friday, Saturday’s Menu
Breakfast – Turkey burger with cheese
Lunch – Chinese buffet – two plates and some dessert
Dinner – BBQ brisket with leftover Caesar salad. 2 brownies
Snack – ICE CREAM!!!
Calories – The Horror……The Horror………
The trip to the Chinese Buffet was a birthday cheat. It wouldn’t have been so bad if not for all the other cheats.
Thursday – 164.4 – I gained 4 pounds from the Wednesday lunch!
Friday – 163.9 – A slight dip down with a semi-decent Thursday.
Saturday – 167.6 – A rocket-propelled rise after all of the sugar!
Sunday – 172.5 – OMG! 12 pounds heavier than last Monday!!!
I told you, you wouldn’t believe me. It will probably take a few days of seeing my weight slowly creep down before you realize the number is real and not an April fools prank.
The good news is that I have behaved today and I am back on the straight and narrow path. The bad news is that I had to JUMP UP 12 pounds before I could retake control of my brain……
The angel on my shoulder evidently was on strike for a few days but I have regained my senses. Time to work down the damage.
Tip Of The Day!!!
Wow! The last few days really prove the importance of accountability for long-term success.
I stopped blogging and I stopped posting my weight and food consumption in myfitnesspal.com. Look what happened!!!
I went TOTALLY off the rails.
I’ve learned my lesson. Heck, I started this site with one main purpose, to keep the weight off. The last few days really does prove how much I need to keep posting on this site.
BE ACCOUNTABLE. Keep a food and weight journal and create your own blog. I know I will get back to daily posts. I learned my lesson the hard weigh. (pun intended) 😛
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
