Destroyed by Holiday Parties

It’s weigh-in day.  I’m up 1.2 pounds to 155.8.


But I did it to myself.  I went to 5–count ’em, 5–holiday parties this week, and though I did a decent job not stuffing myself to the gills like I might normally, there are only so many cookies, candies, pigs-in-a-blanket, spoonfuls of jello salad, fried won-tons and cups of hot chocolate your body can take before it shows up on the scale.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more pleased I am that with 5 (did I mention it was 5) holiday parties under my belt, I only gained 1 pound!

So in a way, it’s a triumph!  Though I’m still several pounds away from my goal, and we’re leaving for Utah tomorrow.

My mission on vacation is simply to RETAIN MY CURRENT WEIGHT.  This is going to be very, very hard.  I need some coping strategies, because on the one hand, it’s vacation for heaven’s sake — I want to enjoy it.  On the other, I really don’t want to lose all the ground I’ve covered over the past few weeks.   Any suggestions?

    When I was thin and cute at holiday dinners/parties I would take I small spoonful of everything that looked good to me and then not go back to the food table…It worked well for me until I had kids. Good luck!

    I’m just staring at the title bar with pic, name, and tag line.
