Heading the wrong way
My scale is still being a little wonky, but there was no hiding from the fact that I gained this week. Of course, I had Chinese again last night, so I think the gain is not really as bad as it looks, but I'm up almost a pound - or a whole pound, depending on which reading you believe and depending on how much water retention I have from dinner last night. So, besides last night's Chinese food, why the gain? Total lack of control this week. There was a Christmas breakfast at work and I enjoyed the goodies. Then there were the platters of cookies and boxes of candy that were dropped off that I enjoyed. I didn't drink enough water. And I didn't track my points. I didn't eat much fruit either, instead snacking on weight watchers snacks which though low in points, still add up. Now, this week is Christmas. I expect that to be my only challenge this week. There shouldn't be a lot of goodies at work. We may have dinner with friends on Thursday, which could prove to be a challenge, but I think is manageable. Truth is - it's all manageable, if I want to manage it. I can eat what I want as long as I keep the portion sizes within reason. I will be glad when this week is over though. Sticking to the plan will be a lot easier after the holiday season is done.
