Weight Watchers Fail

I have had a weird week. Not a bad week, just weird. I made batch after batch of cupcakes. IF I had willpower I would bake them, maybe eat a bite of one to confirm they were indeed delicious and leave it at that. Nope. Not me. I am part goldfish you see. You can only put as much food in front of me as I should eat for the day. Anything more than that and I EAT EVERYTHING. That happened with the cupcakes.

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercreme Frosting

Vanilla Cupcakes and Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes w/ Buttercreme icing

I know everyone is SO SHOCKED that I used Buttercreme. I WOULD make other icing, but I have this one almost nailed down. I'm afraid of trying to do other things, although my heavy whipping cream is going to go bad in my fridge. 

Anyway. Today was weigh in day at Weight Watchers. I DID NOT GO. I need to confess somewhere, so might as well confess here. I was afraid to go and see that I gained 8 pounds in a week (I'm SURE this is possible.) I've lost 20ish pounds post Bug. Keep in mind I gained 40ish pounds while pregnant with him. I WAS HUGE. 

How huge you ask?
This Huge

That my friends is me at almost 42 weeks pregnant. The shawl was my MIL's and somewhere she had a picture of herself wearing it while pregnant with my hubby. I don't think she's doing the dorky move though. 

(See, I'm REALLY good at rambling. Try holding a conversation with me in real life, I'll give you a headache!) 

So I skipped out. I'm putting myself on a one week baking break and going to try to cut back on sugar. I wasn't allowed to have many sweets when I was little. I think I'm making up for that now. After I lose the 20 pounds to go to get back to pre-Bug. I THEN have about 30 more to go to get back to pre-hubby.

PLEASE TELL ME WHY: Tell me why you gain weight when you get married. Seriously. GRR. 

Someone yell at me next Thursday and make sure that I went to Weight Watchers. 


  1. My theory is that you don't have to try so hard anymore. You're not obsessed with how you look all the time because, well, who are you trying to impress? Unless you're some kind of crazy trophy wife who lives by looks or something, which I'm not.

    Who knows!! You should mail me cupcakes.

  2. You only gained 40lbs with your little guy?!! That's awesome! I'm not saying this other than to hopefully make you feel better - My normal weight fluctuates around 105lbs... I gained 45lbs with my first child - mostly during weeks 40 and 42 thank you depression.. However when I had twins, I gained over 60lbs. Once I hit that mark, I asked the doctors to kindly not tell me what my weight gain was... and I was induced to have them at 37wks and 5days... not even the full 40wks+... when your son is 2 and you're still not down to pre-pregnancy weight, THEN you can worry... but you have to give yourself and your body at least a 1 year grace period after having a baby! It's just not realistic to expect your body to bounce back sooner than that!
