Holiday Gains (again...)

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Once again, I've overdone it on a holiday. I thought I would have the will power to abstain from tasting all of the delicious treats that my mom and I were baking to give away as gifts, but I just couldn't resist. I'm up 3.4 pounds which means I won't reach my NYE goal of 120lbs. I guess now I'm just aiming to be under 125lbs for the New Year, which isn't terrible, but it does mean that I failed at fulfilling my original goal. More of a disappointment than anything.

I'm ready to get back on track today. There will be no big holiday party due to unforeseeable family events, plus I'm working this afternoon (which would have allowed me to be absent from the feast anyway), so that's one more temptation I don't have to wave in front of my face. There will probably be various baked goods and candies at work, but I'll be able to turn those down since I'll probably be running around like crazy and so stressed out that I won't even have time to think about eating. Work has that effect on me lately. I'll still bring some Greek yogurt and fruit with me just in case, and maybe a protein bar. Lots of water, of course. There probably won't be a workout today (the gym is closed), unless I can fit in an Insanity session. I'll see how it goes.

    Merry Christmas!! It is too bad you have to work today? Do you at least get time and a half?

Yes, do not beat yourself up about the weight gain. I haven't been losing this Holiday Season, and by NYE I will probably gain some (well ON NYE that is, as I am planning on having pizza).

You will get right back on track after the New Years. I just feel it. Because we are strong and have will power!

    Hi there - Merry Christmas!

I absolutely agree with AGK3112 - most folks who aren't even thinking about what they eat REALLY overdo it during the holidays and so I wouldn't sweat it too much. You are obviously someone who takes this seriously and so it shouldn't be an issue to get back on track, right?

Personally I don't set goals related to weight, only goals related to actions I can control - like tracking, eating X veggies per day, etc. I've never been able to control how much weight I lose in a given time frame so I don't do "weight by a date" goals. But that's me. Everyone is different.

Make it a great day!
Matt

    It is just obvious that people do get weight gain during holidays. Don't worry much about it. And think about those pounds which you have lost around this year. Pls dear don't disappoint yourself just for 3 or 4 pounds. Wish You Merry Christmas
