Ok, so here is the second part of my update - for Nov-Dec.  It started out so well and then I had my office Christmas party and I also went out for my (soon to be) sister-in-law's birthday.

I am back on track and saw a nice loss this past Saturday at my WW meeting.

Also - WW started their new program.  Now they look at the calories, saturated fat, sugars, and protein to determine the (now called) Smart Points of a food.

This has actually re-energized me and made me really look at some of my food choices.

I have stopped grabbing a candy or two out of the dish at reception everyday.  I have increased my fruits and veggies, and stopped having a granola bar for my morning snack.  I am working on drinking more water all throughout the day and am not adding milk to my tea.  I increased my protein, especially at breakfast and lunch. 

Most important I stopped binge eating on Saturdays because "I had already weighed in" and "it doesn't count/will just be a part of my weekly extra points".

I still had treats on Saturday - they were just smarter choices and smaller portions.

I am very excited about the new program (even if they are having technological issues on the app and website).  It really does make me think before I just have that bite, lick or taste.

Now I just need to develop some plans and solutions for Christmas.  I do not want to gain 5 to 10 pounds and spend the first part of 2016 working to get back to my pre-holiday weight.

  1. Good for you! Such a difficult time of year to do this. Someone brought donuts to work yesterday, I opened the box and saw a quarter of one left so I took that. Hey, it's a step in the right direction!
