I need to be honest with you. I didn’t track any during the Thanksgiving holiday. My decision to not track really came down to traveling and celebrating 2 Thanksgivings. To be completely honest, I just didn’t want to track. But now I am in full on Holiday Hangover mode. I dub this the Holiday Hangover since I feel like I am hungover on all the food I ate. I am still craving the delicious pumpkin pie I ate. And those homemade cookies which are to die for. The list could go on and on.
Because I didn’t track during the week of Thanksgiving, I am struggling to get back to it. Today is Tuesday, and today I tracked…so that’s a start, right? I hate feeling like I failed, and I do feel like that since I didn’t track at all. But I know that if I had tracked, it wouldn’t have been as enjoyable of a holiday. And I also know how to work to do better over Christmas. Yes, I ate more food this past week than I have in a long time. Yes, it wasn’t all low calorie (is any holiday food low calorie?) and yes, I feel a bit bad about it. But it’s not all lost. I have still lost over 10 lbs since I started Weight Watchers, and I count that as a win. My clothes are fitting better and the sizes of my clothes are slowly going down.
I am simply here to say that just because I didn’t track or count points for the week doesn’t mean I have given up. I am still going to lose the weight and I am still getting back to a regular routine. The Holiday Hangover might have won this time (and really, I let it win), but I will be more ready for Christmas.
