It's Friday the 13th and while I am superstitious to an extent, I believe you make your own "luck" when it comes to weight loss, so I wasn't too afraid of getting on the scale this morning. There was some apprehension as I had spent two whole weeks out of the gym due to the kids getting sick, and then giving it to me. Also, in addition to a Thanksgiving weekend full of food, the week after wasn't easy either. There were only two or three days in the last two weeks where I ate both meals at home. My mental visualization of eating badly is that I balloon up. I think that my clothes will stop fitting and while it may happen in the course of a month or more, a week here or there wouldn't do that (unless you were carrying some serious water weight or had a thyroid problem).
Christmas for my kids is tomorrow, hence the Friday weigh-in. Tonight will involve baking cookies and hanging stocking to be filled with candy and other treats. I will weigh-in next Friday before heading out of town for two weeks, but I allow myself some treats here and there. Especially since this coming week means making dozens of cookies. How could I resist tasting a few? I'll just make sure I make the most of my last week in the gym before the new year and finish out strong.
