Pizza = not worth it

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I shouldn't have even eaten pizza right now because of the dairy free thing, but I made an exception

and it was so not worth it

I have been scale obsessed for about a month now (something I need to work on, but that is for another time) - and on both Sunday and Monday I saw a highly encouraging number - I was on track to meet a milestone goal

so a little pizza wouldn't hurt, right?

uh, yeah, no

the scale actually showed a half pound up from last week

my body didn't like the salt - and it is paying me back today

I can even tell - I look puffy in the face (the calories in 2 1/2 slices of pizza wouldn't do that, but I'll be the salt would)

I just looked at my sodium intake for yesterday and it was twice my recommended amount - yep - it is the sodium

was all that sodium worth the delay of a milestone victory this week?

no

was the pizza really even all that good?

for like 2 minutes and then the rush wore off and my body wanted more

trigger food?

yep

sometimes learning things the hard way is how we make them stick

sparking on!

    I love all pizza. I can't give it up. But, I've found if I make it at home on my own it can be just as yummy. Have you heard of Hungry Girl? It's a website that has recipes for all you're favorite "naughty" foods but low cal. There's a calzone recipe I love. You could use soy cheese instead of cows milk. I think it's good to find better options of some of your favorite foods rather than deprive yourself. Because food is yummy and just because we are dieting, doesn't mean we still can't enjoy our food. Right? I agree eating high calorie pizza is not worth sabotaging all your hard work. Try making the low cal alternative and see if it satisfies!

    Pizza is one of my favorite foods so I understand the temptation. It's not really worth the extra calories and sodium though. Your next weigh in will be better!

    Arg, sodium is a killer. It can be so hard to judge what the levels are in something until it's too late! Don't worry, you'll be recovered by the end of the week and back on track for that milestone!
