So the last time I weighed myself was December 5th and I had lost some lbs after a gain and was back down to 225 lbs. But as Christmas got closer and I was baking more and eating more I could feel things getting tighter.
The giant wartime Christmas cake I made, you know the one with mock marzipan and icing and the large eggless Christmas pudding… I ate them both, all by myself in 10 days. Add to that a bottle of sherry, wine and some spirits, ration shortbread and fudge and large quantities of just about everything, I wasn’t surprised to feel that old friend return by the end of December, back ache. I KNEW the weight gain had to be significant, I felt so bloated…
Facing the scales just after New Years, I wasn’t surprised to see a weight gain of 19 lbs… my weight was back up to 244 lbs. Yes I let out a wail and shed a few tears but this was really just the shock. It’s OK, I’m not about to let this get the better of me. I have a job to finish and I feel like crap eating all that extra food. It was definitely sugar overload…
So I’m going to make Friday mornings my regular weigh in date and can’t wait to be hitting the track again..
199 lbs here we come!!
Good luck everyone in your own weight loss resolutions!
