My WI did not go well today. I gained 3.3 lbs.—added on to what I gained last week. I am up about 5.7 lbs. from my lowest weight. It’s no surprise to me. I saw it coming. Please understand that it’s very hard for me to come on here and admit that I have gained weight AGAIN, so please be kind with your judgments. I didn’t even want to post today. I tend to be hard enough on myself, I’m just putting it out here so I know I am being honest with myself and with you. Losing weight can be a winning battle and also a struggle sometimes. Just being real.
I am blaming it 60% on myself and 40% on TOM. Oh and can I also blame it on there being too many celebrations and delicious foods around? I normally keep sweet treats out of the house, but I’ve had to make things for social events, so here they are…and so I eat. I’ll be happy when the holidays are over. Normally our holidays are pretty low key, but it seems like it’s been one event after another this year. And today was the work Christmas party… a potluck was involved. But I made up for it by eating a healthy and delicious salad for supper.
Hubby and I have a plan to compete from after the holidays until the cruise. He wants to get rid of a few pounds too. It should be great motivation to not only get the weight I’ve gained off…but to get to ONEDERLAND! Which I will get to eventually…guaranteed.
I also had a great talk with my sister this afternoon and I told her how I felt. She reassured me that even thin people struggle during the holidays. She suggested to enjoy the foods but up my exercise and really put in the time and work in that area right now to try to make up for enjoying some of those foods I only get once a year. That made me feel better. So I’m going to try to work out over the weekend more than usual.
Are you struggling this holiday season? What is your game plan?
