Protect Your Program Day 6 ~~ 100 Days of Weight Loss
Saturday, November 11, 2017
The lesson form this book is so vital that I continue to work hard practicing strategies to protect my program. Long term strategies:
Bring a veggie tray to parties and get togethers.
Carry and drink water.
Allow myself some high calorie chips or treats but stay aware and remind myself how hard it is undo over-indulging.
Move as much as I can at holiday get togethers by helping with set up and clean up.
Carry almonds in my purse.
At home, No eating after 7 PM
Last year's holiday gain was less than the year before and this year's goal is no gain.
To help accomplish this I have added the goal of more steps and increased activity. I will continue to read and re read last year's post holiday notes to remind myself of pitfalls from past years such as "do not eat holiday goodies except on special designated days, complete deprivation does not work for me, bring home only healthy leftovers... "
SP and "The 100 DWL" have taught me how to circumvent most food pushers but I need to work harder on the one in my head telling me it's okay to snack at night which is my highest risk time especially when watching TV or DH snack.
Today, to protect my program, I will once again gently remind DH how hard it is when he snacks in front of me and I am going to cut down on TV time.
