Chocolate Pie nightmare

Okay, by this title I bet that you are thinking O'boy what has she done.  As most of you know by my blog yesterday it was my birthday.   Thanks everybody for the happy birthdays and well wishes.   I made up my mind yesterday to get with the program and start rowing my boat to the finish line of weight loss.   I ate a lite lunch yesterday and had turkey tenderloins laid out to go on the grill with mexi corn and some wild rice with veggies in it.   All the best laid plans seem to go to hell in a hand basket as my grandmother used to say.   I knew something was up when my husband called to see how long I was going to be.  I get home and our youngest son and his wife and our grand baby are there.   Now normally I am proud to see them and crazy to see our grandson Isaac.   It's my birthday and they have brought me a chocolate dream pie with choc shavings on top.  I love them both, really I do and I appreciate the pie.  BUT I AM ON A DAMN DIET......    I thank them and put it in the frig and I though okay after they leave I will get rid of it.   Can any of you see where this is headed.  Yep it happen, we finished supper and this pie is going Debbie, Debbie I am chocolate and I am your favorite.     I opened the frig and asked my husband if he wanted a piece and of course he said yes.  So I cut him a piece and me a small piece.    Ohhhhhhhhhh my the first taste was heaven I am not going to lie and say I did not enjoy every bite I did.  

Now this is where it starts to get interesting, we get ready for bed and I get sick.  I cannot sleep and I get a bad headache.  You see my body is not used to something that rich and it is telling me you screwed up and now I am going to make you pay for it.    I got sick off of the pie...   When I was eating it I thought okay this is worth a one time binge.  You know something no it was not, and my body knew this.   I am used to eating sweet stuff like frozen yogurt or fresh fruit smoothies.   Sometimes I just need a swift kick in the you know what to make me realize that I do not need this kind of food anymore.   I really did not enjoy it and after getting sick I will never eat one again.    I was still a little sick this morning and had to make myself eat my waffles and peanut butter. 

So you can see that I am at least trying to row in the right direction.  I did row in a circle last night, but I got it straighten out and headed in the right direction.    I am going to show a lost this week when I get on those scales on Monday.    Thanks again everyone for the birthday wishes.


This was the pie.... See what I mean...

I noticed the other day that my trans fat tolerance is compeltely GONE. One plain cheeseburger from McDonalds and I was sick sick sick. Like thought I was gonna die or not get to the next rest stop on time sick.

Indiana needs to put Subway in at their rest stops.

Good for you that you only had one piece to begin with, I don't know if could have had that much control

That does look some yummy. Listen, it's ok to have small non-diet foods everyone once in a while. MODERATION AND SELF-CONTROL are the key! I, most of the time, have to stay away from things like this. Instead of the small piece that you had, I would have eaten most of the pie :/ eeekkk

I'm looking forward to a time when things no longer look so tempting!
