Alright, I know I said in my last blog that I would not be concerned about a couple of extra pounds. But when it gets to be 8 extra pounds, it's a problem.
The problem for me is that I do work really hard to lose weight, and then in a matter of days/weeks, I pack it all back on, and then some. And then I feel all disappointed in myself. Not to mention fat.
Now, let's not forget the other issue: It is DECEMBER EFFING 14th! Only a genius like me would attempt to start a diet in the middle of the holiday season. But it has to be done, for my self-esteem/sanity's sake. This is turning out to be one of the best Christmas seasons I've had in a long while, so I can't say I really regret any of the dinners/parties/events. I'm spending a ton of time with those I love. That said, on days when I don't have something planned, I just need to stick to the lower calorie plan. No need to binge on crap on a Wednesday afternoon just "because it's Christmas!"
It's day one, and so far so good. It's already 12:34pm and I haven't eaten everything in sight. This could of course be related to the fact that I woke up at 10:30, or perhaps that I am still full from eating everything in sight YESTERDAY.
Whatever. Perhaps tomorrow will be a better measurement of progress.
