Thanksgiving is my Super Bowl of holidays. I cook for days and eat everything I love once a year with gusto. The amateur foodie within me comes out when I begin creating all those yummy sides, that swallow my plate whole. It an undertaking and challenge that I excitedly accept with pleasure each year.
I started a weight loss challenge in August. I was on fire for about 2 weeks. I kept strong for about a month and then the fire slowly turned to ashes. I did lose and keep off some weight once the challenge concluded in October. I take that as a win.
I have eaten my way to adding back a few pounds in the wrong direction and now I will be starting strong on Monday with a new goal in mind. I have reached out to a few ladies in my community to join me, as my love of food and lack of love for exercise collide.
The weigh-in showed a 4 pound gain from my lowest recent weigh-in. For the love of CARBS and TURKEY! I will prevail and Thanksgiving will not derail this journey. I am in the home stretch.
Slow and steady. Steady and slow. That is the way of my weight loss it seems!
