The weight-loss contest is over! Our final weigh-in was last Monday. We didn’t win, but we came in a respectable fourth place (out of 20), and I hit my goal. I was quite pleased with myself.

Of course, the minute that the final weigh-in was over, I went off the deep end into a pool of all things fattening. I needed it, or so I would like to say. Now that my rampage is over, I’m trying to learn something new: moderation. I can eat next to nothing and be okay for a short while, but living in the real world and staying smart with my food choices is a completely different subject. I don’t think that I am capable of “just being smart”. I think I need a system.

I’m trying out Plan A. I make sure that I get in enough vegetables and water everyday, and I try to stick to an eating schedule. I get three “exceptions” every week for meals out or a special dessert. I am really hoping that this plan works... Plan B is to return to calorie counting. (Ugh!)
