Weekend Update: Thanksgiving

Sunday, October 13, 2013

I do my weekly weigh-ins on Saturdays. Was so happy I went down again, but even more surprised to see on my start page that I've lost 18 pounds!!! That's only 2 pounds away from a sold 20!!!!! I can do 2 pounds in 1 week! But then I remembered, its Thanksgiving......

So I'm trying to push myself a little extra each day & hopefully I can meet my goal!
20 pounds! I would have never imagined before! Makes the rest of my goals seem that much more attainable!

Been slacking on trying to catch up with the housework. It just seems to be never ending. I just want to get the place decent once and for all, then its just maintenance......I'm being very optimistic with my lazy husband that doesn't lift a finger to help. SIGH.

I just feel like I can't relax living in a mess.
At least I still have a few more days of vacation. (not much of a vacation).

I'm still being optimistic that maybe next year I will get to go on my beach vacation.....
And just imagining how much more weight I will loose by then!
Got to stay positive.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving dinner at my parents and I'm really not looking forward to it.
Over an hour's drive (one way) to spend quality time with people that treat me like crap. But somehow I'm obligated to do so. Getting lectured by my grandfather on everything I'm doing wrong. What are the odds that he won't tell me that I'm too fat? Will anyone even notice that I've lost weight? How much junk / fatty foods will they have out for us to graze on while we mindlessly watch tv because nobody wants to talk to each other.
What I used to do was just drink the entire day. But unfortunately my husband doesn't have license atm. Which is kind of a blessing in disguise.....don't need the empty calories or the headache.

Got to stay strong! It's going to be a rough one tomorrow....

    Holidays can be hard for some people. Just remember how far you have come and that will help you make the healthier choices.

    Please remember that even though you may feel alone tomorrow, you are not alone. Many of us have less than kind family members and friends who can't wait to sabotage our efforts but there are also millions here in SP with similar goals to yours. Don't expect anything from them that's positive and you will be happy if it happens. emoticon

    CONGRATULATIONS on doing so well!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Do something to remind yourself of your goal. Put a rubber band on your wrist and snap it when you need a reminder. Social situations/holidays/family gatherings are tough, but manageable. Do the best you can and don't beat yourself up afterwards if you make a few bad choices.

    And congrats on the fantastic weight loss!!!!!!!
