Even though I still have two more events I began the day after Christmas just getting back to three sensible meals a day and a snack (like a few almonds or 1/2 a food bar) at night. I was up probably 5 times last night getting rid of the water retention from the carbs.
My event tomorrow evening is at a restaurant so I can order something sensible and it will count as dinner and snack. Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. is a family get together so that meal will count as lunch and dinner. There will be all the usual holiday things but truthfully it's getting old. The food is getting old but I love spending time with my family. They are the best.
I will be making a cabbage soup on New Year's Day. Do any of you have cabbage on New Year's Day for good luck? My mother in law used to make a pot of cabbage with the smoked sausage and potatoes in it and she would add a dime to the pot. Whoever got the dime in their serving was supposed to have an extra amount of good luck in the coming year. Of course, we went through the children's servings to make sure they didn't get the dime. Choking to death would not be considered good luck.
You know what gets me? People who ask me if I am still losing weight. For crying out loud I've regained you idiot (I said that in my brain). I usually very good naturedly break the news to them that I have regained some of the weight and will be working on it post haste.
I will start a new weight chart on Wednesday. I can take it.
Anybody else glad the holiday is drawing to an end and we can get back to our routine? Me for sure. I read that one of the signs of an addiction is that the person goes ahead with the behavior in spite of knowing what the negative consequences will be. That's all I'll say about that.
Be careful out there today.
