Back to it!

Monday, January 07, 2013

I have had a little holiday from tracking. Bit risky but it was only for 2 weeks. Of course Christmas and New Year weeks are probably two of the most dangerous for weight gain in the whole year.

We (my OH and I) tried not to blow it and go overboard. But we have eaten Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, roast potatoes, stuffing, bread sauce, cranberry sauce, fresh cream, mince pies, chocs, cookies and probably more besides. So I was more than a little anxious to get on the scales. OH had beaten me to it and gained 2 pounds. Not bad I thought and stepped on, squinting at the scale through almost closed eyes with a pained expression and - I stayed the same!! AMAZING!

How could this be? I hadn't deprived myself of anything. I had also drunk wine and brandy several times. In years gone by I had easily put on 4-5lbs over the same period. Why the difference this year?

But thinking about it I felt full more quickly this year. I refused pudding on Christmas day because I was too full and would have been eating only for the sake of the nice taste. At one time I would have forced just a small portion down so as not to miss out. Had 3 crackers and a few slivers of cheese for tea instead of the usual plateful of nibbles or sandwiches. Only took a couple of small roast potatoes instead of 3 or 4. Filled my plate with more vegetables than anything else but had a bit of everything.

You know I think this Sparkpeople lark might have something. I'm changing for the better, almost without realising it. Gradually and for life.

Yay! Happy New Year.

  emoticon The holidays can be killers on weight watchers. So glad you don't have to re-lose the weight you've lost. It could be that you've shrunk your tummy or automatically eat less and better portions and the right stuff; or just that you naturally move more. Whatever accounts for it.. GOOD FOR YOU!
