Holiday Weight


Over the holidays we all gain weight and I have. I have not stepped on the scale yet but I can tell that I did gain some extra pounds. My pants are tighter, my shirts do not feel the same. I am not happy with how I look. I need to lose some weight. I ate really bad over the holidays and no one is to blame but my self.


Now I can say I am gonna run, diet and all those fun things but I would be lying to my self and you. I am gonna eat better, not diet. I am gonna try to walk more. I am not going to kill myself but I do want to lose the couple pounds I put on over the holidays. I do not want to be super skinny. I was happy with my weight before and that is where I want to be again. I am sure it is only 5-7 lbs but that can really make a difference in your clothes and how you look.

Now here is what I plan to do:

No more bad food or junk. I am not baking anymore! I made so much junk that I am not baking anymore for awhile. If I do..it is only healthy stuff. I am also cutting out soda. I have done this a few times before and started again. It is super easy and I know I can do it. I am also walking again and working back up to running so I can get back into my 5k's. I am not eating out anymore. I am only going to bring food from home for work.

This is how I am going to start..and go from there. After this, if I lose some weight, I may go a little farther as I want to get in shape some more before we start trying for a baby.

What tips or tricks are you doing to lose your holiday weight?

  1. this is such a smart plan!! I spent years starting on diets and just falling right off the bandwagon. then I just gave up on diets and started eating better slowly but surely, it works like a charm!

  2. I've been a member of weight watchers for 4 years, and that is their mantra... that dieting doesn't do anything for you for the long run. Smart plan, girl! You got this. =)

  3. So true!! I have extra weight from before the holidays. bad girl!
    Agree, it's simple, eat less junk, excercise more. Good goals to get moving.
    I also heard that drinking warm water with a dash of lemon juice first thing in the morning helps.
    I am trying to cut down on frying food, adding sugar or salt to food and eating less "processed and ready made" food

    Good luck!!
