    Lately I am trying to be very good with what I eat so I can lose a few more lbs before I go to the beach and I have been doing pretty well. Now I wake up this Easter morning and my mom has Reeses Eggs, jellybeans, and other candies. Not only that, but for Easter dinner we are having a honey-baked ham, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, salad (yay something healthy), and pie for dessert. Ah all my favorites! Dammit mom! Looks like I am running twice today...

    Anyone else have to break the diet today in a serious way?

    Pfft...I was going to the nude beach (and getting laid) while I was still 230 lbs. Being slightly overweight is no reason to stay off the beach.

    Oh and for the cheat meals, well, it's impossible to gain more weight than the weight of the food you eat, so pig out for a day and don't worry about it. icon_wink.gif

    We're in the same boat. I'm going to my favorite diner with my Mom and uncle for breakfast. Greasy food is a great way to start the day! Then for dinner my step mom is making chicken and steak, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, potato salad and a few other things. Since I work at a bakery, I brought home desserts. It seemed like a good idea on Friday. It's only going to be her, my dad and brothers and myself. I feel like should be doing something active every 5 minutes just to balance everything out. Luckily this is the last "big" holiday. PIG OUT MAN!!! icon_twisted.gif

    I timed my cheat day to be Easter Sunday....don't sweat it man, just enjoy the day with your family. Im kinda blessed in the sense that sweets make me sick to my stomach....so im not inclined to reach for the Reese Peanut Butter Eggs .

    Ok then maybe I shouldn't feel so bad about what might turn into a 5,000 calorie day haha. But I DO think I am going to run now and after dinner too...

    Sunday's long been my Anything-goes Day, but it'd be hard to top this day's, um, richness. Never would've I believed anyone if they told me that I could indeed ingest so many hard-boiled eggs, and brioche buns, and egg-sauce over Friday's fish dishes. Nevermind even beginning to count all the cute little chocolate bunnies I've been asked to share. Tonight, it's supper with a religious fraternity: mammoth maple-glazed smoked hams, potatoes dauphinoises, and custard-stuffed buckwheat dumplings poached in maple sap -- hea...vy.

    Sunday -- for Christians, anyway -- is meant to be a day of Grace. Abundance is the order of the day, so indulge. The "cheat day" wasn't invented yesterday (nor by Men's Health or Arnie), and has always been meant as a reward for Moderation and as a check against Deprivation. In addition to a weekly day for loosening one's belt(s), once in a while, spread out over the course of year, are feast days when one can be a serious glutton without shame and also provide Gratification to the ones that have whole-heartedly invested themselves in the offerings to be shared. On those few days each year, I set aside my individual programmes and proscriptions and focus instead on being a delightful and grateful guest. The food, after all, regardless of what symbolism and traditions it may be invested with, is still only a pretext for uniting one's nearest and dearest. So why not just raise one's glass (or hoist that diet-busting fork) and flourish the gratitude upon one's hosts as bountifully as they have spread it before their chosen few? We can always workout twice (or twice as hard) next day.

    I shoulda given up Eating for Lent.

    What diet?

    Oh right. Yeah- I have a bad habit of doing that whenever I come home. icon_sad.gif It sucks. I go from veggies and lean meat to fatty meat and corn because my dad's and my definitions of protein are very different.

    Ugh....I FEEL ya there...I do the cooking when I go home because; 1. my dad has no idea how to turn the stove on and 2. the only thing my mom has time to make is reservations. I get cute comments like "what was this when it was alive?" ...i usually lie lol.

    Exercise is the key.
    If you get enough exercise, you can pretty much eat anything you want and not pay for it, or feel guilty.
    Tomorrow I could get run over by a cross town bus.
    I'm not going to starve myself, today.
    My Easter dinner was baked ham, mashed potatoes, salad, roasted asparagus, and apple pie, preceded by humus and chips, and cheese and crackers.

    Webster, yeah you are right. At least I ran for 30 minutes and walked for 30 minutes yesterday! And I didn't pig out TOO bad for what I am capable of haha. Just gotta cut these last few pounds off my belly!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle, that sounds delicious! Did you have help because that seems like a ton of work haha.
