My food intake the last week or so has been predominantly on track. I have tracked it all and I'm doing what needs to be done. Are the scales reflecting it???? NO. Does that mean I'm going to give up? Heck no! This will all fall into place and the weight WILL start to fall off.
I'm heading into tomorrows foodapalooza on shaky ground. I'm determined to navigate this holiday without gaining tons. I'm actually a bit nervous about it. I feel as if I'm a newbie at this weight loss thing, just starting to forge a path through the wilderness, lost and confused. I have to keep reminding myself that this is NOT true. I've been here before. I've navigated my way through holidays in the past. I've managed to LOSE WEIGHT through holiday meals and cookie baking days and all of that. I can do this. I KNOW how to do it. So that nervous scared feeling that pervades my thought processes is erroneous and I have to remind myself of that continually. And I have to remember that it is simple things like 'less food on my plate', 'heavier on the veggies' , 'limit the desserts'. The biggest thing to remember is that there is NO FOOD that will be on that table that I can not eat the next day, or the next week or the next month. Nothing is taboo. Next week if I want more stuffing, I can make it. Next week if I'm still craving whatever I feel like I didn't eat enough of, I can make it and eat it then. There is no need to stuff myself silly on Thanksgiving day!
I'm hanging on. I'm working it. I will find success!
Weather permitting I'll be out running my Turkey Trot tomorrow. Not sure how I'm going to do with it....but I'm going to do it! :-)
Happy Thanksgiving day!!!!!!
