I’m back, folks. And – unfortunately – with no real news; still holding at a total weight loss of 9 lbs. What happened? Well, Christmas happened.
I postponed The Fresh Diet delivery on the 24th, 25th and 26th of December, reasoning that between the Turkey Fest and Leftover Turkey Fest, I would not do the diet justice. Nervous I’d put on about 5 lbs from all the holiday indulging, I had a plan:
1. Try everything. It’s Christmas! And I wasn’t about to pass up my mom’s delicious prime rib or my mother-in-law’s scrumptious cookies. However, I kept my portion sizes small and resisted the urge to go back for more – simply grazing and sampling instead of binge-eating.
2. Keep sugar in check. Simple carbs are my enemy – and unfortunately, my Achilles heel. So I made sure to load up on veggies, whole grains and protein, so that by the time I sliced into our traditional Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake, I would have little room to test my willpower. (I did have a sliver; it was divine.)
So, instead of waiting for that elusive 1 pound to post a pic, I thought I’d share this photo from Christmas Eve – here’s what I look like at 135 lbs! Only 10 more to my goal!
