Still doing damage control from thanksgiving and want to get back to my goal weight before Christmas. I know I will put some on during that 10+ days around Christmas through New Years, but overall I want to try to keep within 7 pounds of my goal weight to minimize that post-holiday 'diet'.
I hit my goal weight 10/12. My strategy was always to get a couple pounds below so that my goal weight was maintainable (otherwise that first meal would put me over, makes sense to me anyway ).
At any rate, that worked out, and I lost another 2.5 pounds before officially moving into maintenance. On Thanksgiving I was exactly at goal. Yay me! Unfortunately, the best laid plans...
Still up about 2 pounds from Thanksgiving. Travel, deadlines, holiday spirit, you name it, has lead to the slippery slope and my will power is not what it was. Then there was that bake sale, (it was a good cause!) and I was so hungry, tired, stressed (pick your excuse) that I had to have that gingerbread man. That lead to a cupcake and the cravings started. Grrr!
So now my plan is one week of induction to try to get back to my goal by Christmas. May seem like a waste since I intend to fully enjoy the holiday and treats that come with it. But how much would I lose if I didn't try? Hey, it's a plan. Now to execute. Wish me luck!
Happy holidays everyone!
