I Survived a Xmas Party!

I didn't stand around the food all night, yay!! I went into this worried. The last party I went to at Halloween I WAY overdid the munching. Not this time! I ate the equivalent of 1.5 Buffalo Chicken egg rolls dipped in blue cheese, 1 cookie and 1 chocolate covered graham cracker w/strawberry on top. I had 1 drink!

DP and I went on a date for dinner before the party and that really helped. We split an appetizer that was a quesadilla w/BBQ pork and onions. Sooooo delicious. I ordered the soup and salad combo and ate about 1/3 of the salad and 3/4 the bowl of carrot ginger soup. I left comfortably full, another victory.

I got the cold the kids had and have been feeling pretty miserable. The sore throat is really the worst and I've been eating more than my fair share of ice cream to combat it. Nothing else seems to really feel good. I also find myself eating more comfort foods when I am sick. Does anyone else have this issue? I wish it were healthy things like soup but it's more like chips and dip.

I weighed in a few days ago and the scale was back at 260. ?????????????? I was angry. It is approaching TOM so maybe that's it. I don't know but have steered clear of the scale for a few days knowing I haven't been stellar and worried what it will say. I plan to weigh in tomorrow morning and hope to get down to only weighing in once a week.

I am going to post on one of my weight loss forums and ask for a buddy. I need someone to keep me accountable, to bounce ideas off of, etc. I'm hoping I will find someone available via email most of the day so I can write and say "help, the ice cream is screaming to me from the freezer" LOL.

It's supposed to warm up a little around here this week. Yesterday it made it into the upper 20's!! After several days in the single digits it was downright balmy. I took the dogs for a little walk and if I had dressed a little more appropriately I definitely could have stayed out longer. So, I'm hoping to get more walks in this week.

  1. I think a diet buddy is a GREAT idea!! I hope you find who you're looking for!

    Great job staying clear of the holiday food table at the party! Seriously. Also, a great idea to eat before the party! :)
