I'm in that time of the year, when the best I can do is hang on for the ride. I've done a lot of contemplation regarding my situation and have decided that if, on October 10, my weight is no higher than it is now, I will be successful. I don't expect not to gain any in between times, but if I can yo-yo my way through this I'll be satisfied. I've just about gotten back to my Saturday morning weight after my double whammy weekend!
I don't think any one's weight stays the same all of the time. I think even naturally thin people overeat from time to time. They just naturally adjust their intake going forward to shed the excess. I think it is unrealistic no matter what one's weight to expect to weigh exactly the same every single day. Our bodies (especially women's) hold & shed fluid for all sorts of reasons. The trick, it seems, is to find what the range is and stay in it. But, I'm not there yet. I'll get there, and in the meantime, I've got to have a plan.
My next challenge is an adoption ceremony at work on Friday. These are sweet occasions that none of us want to miss. There will be cake, punch and various finger foods. I have already volunteered to serve. This technique has served me so well in the past, I'm not really worried about eating anything at all.
My sister will be coming to town on Tuesday of next week to stay until the next Tuesday. I live for these times. I love it when she and her family are in town. My other sister and I take time off from work and just do what comes to mind all week. My niece and I started getting pedicures a couple of years ago, so that is on our must do list. We all just take a step back from the hustle and bustle of life and just enjoy each other. It is great!!!
With regard to food & eating, I'll probably do my own thing at meal time. That will be fine. There will be snacks and tempting treats around, but I'm just going to have to forgo those. I don't feel strong enough to allow myself only one. My issue here is that, since I often stall out on the weekends with weight loss, I fear the same thing this week. I haven't put my finger on what happens on the weekends to create this phenomenon. It happens. This will be an 8 day weekend for me. I'm hoping that, at worst, my weight stays flat.
Of course as soon as they leave the faculty feeding frenzy begins with 65MD's school...then my birthday...then his birthday...then our anniversary...then a trip...then...then...then...
