I lost 5.6 pounds this week which takes me to 68.8 pounds lost since April. My current goal is to reach 75 pounds lost by the new year, and I’m right on track to do it.
Over Thanksgiving I learned that I could eat things that I enjoy without gaining weight, and I plan to do that again over the Christmas holidays. Baking, making homemade candy and fudge and parties can be challenging though I try to remind myself that the next bite will taste like the last. And so far, it has worked for me.
Tomorrow night, I’ll enjoy Thai food with friends at the best restaurant in New York City. And I’ll eat there with other friends Monday night as well before going to the opera. They key, for me, is to enjoy proper portions of the things I love most while remembering that this won’t be the last time I eat it. 😉
So I’m looking forward to the new week, and I’m ready to face the challenges ahead. I hope to feel better soon too because it’s much easier to workout when I’m not coughing so much that I feel like my chest might explode.
How do you cope with holiday eating? Do you have a game plan to guide you through this holiday season?
