We had an early Thanksgiving on Wednesday. That went really well. The problem was the next three days. I actually squeaked by within range on Thursday, but with family staying with us I really went over on Saturday and Sunday. That was disappointing. I have to create a better strategy for the extended family holiday at Christmas.
Fortunately, Christmas is on Saturday so I think I just need to plan for Friday night, Saturday and Especially Sunday! It seems I can keep SP going for a day or two, but it gets much harder for 3 or 4 days with family at our house. Too much emphasis on FOOD! I have some puzzles for the holiday and I'm hoping to have time focusing on those.
You have done well. Sometimes our focus gets a bit foggy when it comes to food, otherwise we wouldn't get in the rough shape we were in when we started SP.
Remember that this is a life time and lifestyle change. You didn't get in trouble overnight and you won't automatically change.
Try and track your food for the day BEFORE you eat it. Plan to stay on track. It is much easier when you know what you can eat without tipping the scale.
But then, remember, this is one meal. Wasn't it?
Just don't like the entire holiday season become an excuse to backslide.
Fork down - activity up!!

I had a plan, I "prepped" for Thanksgiving by staying on the low side of my calorie range and pushed a little harder on my workouts. I was doing great - until Thanksgiving! Then I lost all control and pigged out BIG TIME! I am back on track now but I am scred about my weigh-in tomorrow. In a little over two months, I have learned a lot from SP. But I still need to get a handle on occasions like dining out and holidays.
So how did your Thanksgiving go?
