We're here in that space between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is an opportunity to get a jump on those holiday dinners and parties that can sabotage us in our valliant efforts to lose weight. Take advantage of the lull and plan ahead for the special events. Get in a little extra exercise while you can, even if it's mall walking. Extra points for avoiding the cash registers! Make sure you continue to drink enough water every day -- this winter dryness can really dehydrate us. And we know that we often mistake thirst for hunger and wind up eating more when what we need is a drink of good ol' H2O!
I'm glad to report I am still 8 pounds down from my starting weight. I know that's nowhere near the 50 I "should have" lost by now, but it's still better than staying the same or gaining.
I want to ask you guys something. Sometimes when I lose weight, I start feeling heavier. Like now. I really expected to see that I had gained everything back because I feel like gravity has increased. Does this ever happen to you? If this continues, I can project that at my goal weight I'll be permanently prone on the floor!
Make this a good week. Let's give ourselves a chance at some progress during the lull if we can, OK?
