Monday 25th July 2016
I always knew before I left for this holiday that I would find it really difficult. I knew that my food choices were going to be hard. I knew the kids would be eating pizza, burgers, chips, ice cream and bread, pastries and croissants from the bakery.
Since being on the holiday all that is true but I think it is worse than I expected. Normally I wouldn’t find it a problem because with my healthy eating I would be losing weight. This holiday I am still eating really healthily but I am putting on weight. I don’t understand why because I have done nothing to make this happen. When I see the scales go up I just try even harder. But then the scales go up again.
I have to admit that it has really got to me. It makes me want to take a hammer to the scales.
“You are doing nothing wrong do not panic, it’s just all those little things add up and you add the heat to the situation, bit of bloating it’s just your liver storing things, it will only be 3/4 lbs and they will easily drop off as soon as you get home. Keep enjoying yourself, the freedom, flavours and the holiday, a few lbs does not matter when you are feeling this good, trust yourself xx”
It made me feel better. But I have come to some conclusions
1) I am not going to use the scales for the rest of the holiday because they are depressing me.
2) I am going to remember how far I have come in a short period of time.
And 3) I am going to remember what it was like after my last holiday when I didn’t really see my true weight until 3-5 days after my holiday when my body settled down again.
So I have decided not to worry, enjoy my holiday but still keep eating the way I am because I am not doing nothing wrong.
