We are back after being gone for nearly a week. Before that, it was nearly a week of off plan eating. As a result, I have gained back ALL that I had lost PLUS some pounds. Very frustrating. Now I am sitting here needing to lose at least 85-90 lbs and ready to start all over in the HARDEST weight loss time of year.
My office is a pitfall of treats. My strategy is this. I will eat things that are very special to me and count them. If there are treats I am not crazy about, I will not eat them. I will log my snaccidents on myfitnesspal.com
I've made my lunch- it contains 5 servings of fruits and veg, two vegetarian proteins and a grain.
Our vacation was to Maryland and we are all, very bluntly, over fed. My in-laws are pure food is love people. No matter what you just ate, you will be asked to eat more. Always. It's very difficult to refuse. I came home about 10 lbs heavier than when I left. There's a good chance that a lot of that weight is water weight, so I should see some results relatively quickly. I am going to record my daily weigh. I do this anyway, so maybe I will be more day to day accountable. This is a slippery slope for me, though, because I can get a bit scale obsessed.
The first few days will be difficult. For 6 days, I have been stuffed full to bursting over and over. Eating normal amounts of food will leave me famished. For these two days, I have to be tough, vigilant.
YES I CAN.
