I just had my third weigh-in on a new weight management program.  This weigh-in was monumental for me since I had effectively fallen into every pitfall possible this week.  My derailment began at the Blissdom conference.   At this conference,  I fell prey to every temptation in sight, and there was pretty much a non-stop barage of samples and treats.  This is how my deprivation problems come into play.  If I know I am going to feel deprived, I simply don’t deprive myself.  I know, I know it is a genious weight loss plan to eat everything in sight, but it gets better.  When I got home from the conference I fell into another old habit.  Since I had gotten so down on myself for the first part of the week, I decided to go ahead and go all out.  People, I am talking Olive Garden, Starbucks, Bliss chocolates, you name it.  My initial lack of control was all I needed to throw caution to the wind and give up ALL control.  Although my weigh-in is supposed to be on Thursdays, I decided to go a day early to get myself back on track.  And guess what?!?!?!?  I lost nearly two pounds!!!!!  Now I am kicking myself imagining what I would have lost this week if I had just gotten back on the horse after falling into the first pitfall.  Will I ever learn?
