Trying to stop the bleed

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I gained 1 pound. Well .8 pound actually.
I'm not unhappy about it, but I didn't stick to my game plan either which is disappointing.
On Thanksgiving I ate what I wanted calorie wise, but I did try to keep my carb count in check. I indulged in stuffing and gravy, but passed on the pies, sweet potatoes, and biscuits...until last night.
I fixed myself a plate that had a lot more carbs on it than it should for dinner.
Then I crept out in to the kitchen in the middle of the night and started with a sliver of pie, no crust. Suffice it to say, it ended with me eating vanilla ice cream directly from the container.
The key to it all now is to get back on track. This is where I always mess up.
My family continues on with the stuffing, gravy, biscuits, pies, etc... I need to back off right now.
I'm going to make a very simple meal plan for the next week so there's lots of easy, grab and go foods so I have as few excuses as possible.

    Good job making better choices and turning this around.

    I'm so jealous that that only led to an 0.8 pound gain. I am not exaggerating at all when I tell that for me it would've been a 5 pound gain!

    Anyway, the important thing is that you've been honest with yourself and are ready to get straight back on track. It was, afterall, a special day and we must still be able to enjoy ourselves without letting one day turn into ten. I'm sure that in 2 days that pound will have disappeared again emoticon emoticon

    It's a battle! Don't let the food win!

    Food is just what you need, use what you eat!

    Sounds so simple....but, every single meal, is a struggle! emoticon

    Maybe it would help to make leftovers into dinners. I usually divide up leftovers on a plate and freeze for later meals. That way the leftovers aren't staring at me. The pies ....well I have no answer for that.

    You are aware and that is one of the biggest things we can accomplish. Try to get right back on track. The longer you wait the harder it will be.

    Good luck
