Default I know what did me in

I posted a thread below (titled Oh my GAWD) about gaining a bunch of weight over the holidays and I now know what greatly contributed to it.

I was frequently taking 'dips' of a chocolate cream liqueur called Cask & Cream Chocolate Temptation. Some nights I would drink 3-4 shots of this stuff. I just looked up the calorie info and 1 ounce is 103 calories. Four shots would put me at 412 calories in one night! 412 calories over my usual 1200. I probably did this at LEAST 3-4 times a week. Mostly because I love the taste. It's low alcohol, nothing that will get you drunk (unless you drink an entire bottle) but it was bought for me over the holidays and I just couldn't resist it. I would have been better off eating actual chocolate!

So ok, let's add this up - 412 calories plus my usual 1200 in food puts me at 1612. 1612 over a period of, say, 4 days, puts me at 6448 calories. Which is just barely shy of enough calories to gain a pound over 2 days' time.

So there it is. I was drinking my calories. Add to that the nibbles on the cashews and the snack mixes and the cookies and the candy and the holiday dinners ------ doomed!

Watch those holiday spirits!

It's crazy and sad and frustrating how all those little things add up, huh?

Glad you got to the root of it. ::

Mine was my Daddy's homemade cheese straws. Choc full of butter and full fat cheese. I don't even want to think about how many of those I ate! *shudder!* I'm definately up a few though, it's a good thing they're all gone!
