Back on track, one pound lighter, and just in time as I plan the next few days around food. The goal for the upcoming week…don’t go completely crazy overeating.
I’ll concentrate on three things:
- No soda! Don’t drink extra calories.
- No candy! Dessert – now that’s something else, but I can stop after one slice of pie or cake. Just stay away from the bags of candy and homemade fudge.
- Walk, walk, and walk some more! Walking off large meals is the only chance I have to keep from gaining weight this week.
I still need to lose two more pounds before the end of the year. Difficult…but not impossible.
I remember 30 years ago when pregnant with Meghan Dr. Webster scolded me during my December appointment for gaining six pounds since my last appointment the previous month. He reminded me that if I continued at that rate I’d gain an additional 30 pounds in the next five months. Then he admitted that he’d gained five pounds during the same period and that we’d both need to do better.
I’m not worried about gaining six pounds this month, but I’m also not optimistic that I’ll lose weight this week. I’ll be have with maintaining the status quo. Happy eating and happy walking!
