Help! I've Fallen & I Can't Get Up!

Last update, the idea of 1 dessert a week was working really well for me. Basically, in a nut shell (or maybe a pie shell... chocolate shell... some sort of sweet shell, definitely) after Valentine's, it all went to pot!!! Now I am back in the mindset that I NEED the sweet things to make me happy.

And my exercising? I think March must be the time for me that the flu shot wears off. Last year I was so sick & it happened to me again this time. I had tonsilitis, strep, fever, coughing is still going on... nightmare.  So I am being smart and not exercising too much, too soon, but I'm still sad because all the momentum is gone, replaced by... I'm guessing... 5 pounds on the scale.  Too afraid to actually weigh myself & find out. But the fat rolls are reappearing. That's evidence enough.

And the fact that I know I've gained back some of the weight that was so hard to lose, it's so frustrating, that I can't even face it & I just stay in denial and eat the desserts.

I asked my six-year-old son what I should do if I made a mistake and he said, "Ask a grown-up."  Maybe I'll call into Jonathan Roche's show on Wednesday and try to get some encouragement/advice.

What do you all think?
