After visiting a friend for a few days, and all the food and a few Margarita's and beers thrown in here and there
I weighed in today and I am up 3 pounds! Same thing happened after visiting my aunt and uncle a few weeks back. I guess we can't just sit there and discuss our diet while our hosts and hostesses bring out their carefully chosen meals and snacks now can we???
I'm thinking that this is probably normal and something that will happen from time to time. My job is to immediately get back on track after the fact so that I don't slide into a permanent celebration habit with food! This has been so difficult for me, as I've been away off and on for much of the summer.
I'm not complaining, believe me! It was much easier when I was on vacation for a week and going to restaurants...because I was making my own choices of food. When you are a guest at someones home...things are a little different. And I must say, my friend was sensitive to the fact that my husband and I had lost weight and are still in the process of losing...she had some good healthy meals. We just ate MORE! Why is that? That's something I intend to work on so that I can be ready next time. For now...I have to refocus and get back on track!!!
