I have done pretty well with my eating this week! Sunday was the only day I over ate. It was my nieces 3rd birthday on Sunday and it was a Kung fu panda theme. So the food was mostly Chinese appetizers. Spring rolls,Tao chicken,ginger beef,egg rolls,and some other stuff. Like I said in my last blog,appetizers are my kryptonite. I certainly overdid it that day. It hasn’t seemed to effect my weightloss this week. Which is great.
I’m seriously contemplating not counting points over the holidays,as I won’t even know where to start. I’m not in control of anything that is being made. The only meal I could maybe figure out points,is the dinner with my own family. We have a fondue every Christmas eve.which is just meat put into oil to cook. We also do hot rocks,where you cook your food on a heated rock. That would be a healthier alternative to the oil method. My mom also does a cheese fondu. Which is delectable. One tablespoon of that will be half my points. My mom uses full fat cheeses and cream in that fondu. I don’t want to go crazy and gain Ten pounds over the holidays,but I want to enjoy my food and not worry about counting points. I would be ok with a 3-5 pound gain. As my eating will go back to normal right after Christmas. I guess what I’m saying is,I don’t care if I don’t lose anything or gain a couple pounds. I want to find the balance between eating what I want in moderation,and not feel guilty about it! So what if I gain five pounds? I have faith in myself that I can lose that fairly quickly afterwards. This may be a bad idea. I know no matter what,I will still feel guilty! I think i just want a break so I can eat the foods I love.
