Was I the only one who gained weight at that meal?
Saturday, October 21, 2017
I went to an investment company dinner they put on for customers. I ate what was served: 3 pieces of yellow cheese and 3 crackers for appetizer; 2 glasses white wine. Dinner was a 5 oz filet mignon, about 3 oz baked chicken breast, about 3 oz roasted whole carrot and asparagus; 1/2 c mashed potato. 1 small roll and 1/2 pat butter. 1 slice red velvet cake. So everybody ate the same thing. I forget to mention I had eaten lightly for earlier in the day The next day I am up 2 pounds. I wondered if the same happened to other people. Or is it just me that can't enjoy an occasional decadent meal without gaining weight? That's why losing weight and maintaining it is so stressful. I always have to be on a diet. There's no letting up or else I'll gain weight. I get tired of it and want to eat what I want for once. And when I do. Bingo. Weight gain. And thats why I gained all my weight back--could not stay on my maintenance diet--it was the same diet as it took me to lose the weight.
