Over the last 3 days I have been out for a Christmas meal 3 times. I always knew that the Christmas period was going to be a struggle and I am being proved right.
I have always loved going out celebrating with friends and family but when you are trying to watch what you eat it can be difficult.
I have tried to compensate a little by being extra good on my other meals of the day which has meant that when the time has come for my Christmas meal I am really hungry.
It has also meant that over the last few days I have eaten things that are not on the list of foods I can eat. It’s mainly potatoes.
I know it doesn’t sound like much but when I am failing for no fault of my own, it can be very annoying.
All year I have been good, I have managed to lose weight on the holidays I have been on. I have managed to stay focused when the weight has not gone down at all. But if I survive Christmas without putting on weight it will be a miracle.
The last stone I have lost, every pound has been a real struggle and to think I might be putting some of it back on is not really sitting well with me.
I am eating about a quarter of the amount of food thatI ate last Christmas and I am still trying to be careful when I can. Maybe the fact I have noticed this will help me stay focused on my goal but it is really hard at the moment.
