I slipped last night as well. I was good all day, but had an uncontrollable hunger later in the evening and ended up eating the slab of leftover meatloaf in the refrigerator. It was really good. I will be doing a long ride today to compensate. I guess I can be somewhat lucky I caved on a weekend.

All I have eaten in the past two days is pasta salad and cereal. It's so bad. Pasta salad is so good though. My best friend always says "Diet starts tomorrow!"

On the positive side (other than eating a delicious, wonderful meal), eating such a large meal has undoubtedly revved up your metabolism for the next couple of days.

seems everyone hit the problem I haeve been having the last few weekends, killing the diet *LOL*. This weekend was a camping weekend and I started it off with a sonic no 1 and peach milkshake... 1000 cals gone for the day *sigh* and we ended the day with 2 S'mores... Yummy but I ended up with a 2900 calorie day (calculating with my weight etc my bmr for sedentry is 2750 so only approx 200 over for maintenance that day bur 2000 cals more than I had wed or thur *sigh*) unsure as of cal count for Saturday as some details on phone in location I cant get to but today we hit taco bell at end of weekend and I did the volcano pack (minus the deep fried cinamon sticks - have to make sensible choices occasionally, still 12-4000 cals in one meal!!!!) Only got a semi casual 10 mile ride in but at least we got on bikes Yay this week was hell and I got nil on till then.

Funny thing - I noticed that every single time when I've been dieting and I hit a plateau for a few weeks, if I totally let loose, it reminds my body that it's not going to starve to death and it can let some extra fat cells go already!

Well, I ate poorly all week ending with a trip to the Scandinavian Festival on Saturday. I was 194 at the start of the week and 197 today. So, I must of found some of the weight that you lost.

I was in Colorado this weekend, visiting my family, when my wife and sisters surprised me with an early Birthday Bash (50yrs on the 28th this month...gah!) complete with Pizza and Ice Cream Cake.
Jeeze!
Talk about throwing a drowning man a glass of water!
At least I'd gone on a short (but climbing...at altitude) ride just before.

I like Tom's meal better though. It's much more healthy.
