Week 149 - Merry Feastmas!

0.2lb loss!

The fact that I haven't put on 3lbs this week has somewhat astounded me, given my reaction to unsettling news last week, and various pre-feastmas treats cropping up all over the place.

However, I am still mindful of a certain level of damage limitation where, for example, I decide not to have the 3rd piece of shortbread, even though it's available. If I put on 5lbs over the next week or 2, it's still better than putting on 10lbs.

Still, I'm toying with the idea of creating a new strategy to cope with Feastmas: I'm going to speed up my metabolism by eating too much...

Wishing you all, all the best. May you enjoy your food without too much impact. Make a deal with yourself that you will only over-indulge in the stuff that's really worth it. If you're going to put on a pound, make it worthwhile, and not on some junk thing that you either don't like, or don't even notice you're eating.

Have a good one!

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs

Sorry to hear about your news. Let's hope that it's something that will just pass relatively soon and/or they come up with some help soon.

That metabolism strategy doesn't cound quite right, but I am pretty sure you are just kidding.

I'm going to add after-dinner walks to my menu. No dessert until I've had one!

Merry Christmas, Kim!

Merry Christmas. I'm just hoping to maintain during this season and get back to actual weight loss after my birthday (about 3 weeks off).

Damn, Half Man, I was relying on that strategy...

Merry Christmas all of you and thanks for looking in on me :)
