POST-Holiday Food Indulgence Not So Good Either

We know the average person gains seven pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day each year.  Then the average person "resolves" to diet and exercise more in January.

I was so proud.  No weight gain during the holidays.  I was within four pounds of my target weight.  I rewarded myself for terrific self-control during the holidays by allowing myself just "a little" decadence in chocolate, ice cream, beef, pizza cheese, etc., etc.  The list goes on and on.

As a result, my weight GAIN during January and February was a total of TEN pounds.  So much for diet and exercise, which I thought I really didn't need because I had denied myself all the pleasures of food during the holidays.

Lesson learned.  And now back to square ONE with FOURTEEN pounds to lose.  It don't come easy.  WAIT! Wasn't that the song that the Bachelor candidate used to sing on the show.  Sorry for that one. I need to go work out.  Ugh.
And I was so close.

  2. Hey Doug it comes on fast and off slow. Especially at our age. Actually I am a couple of years older than you. I would like to lose about 20 or 25 Pounds.


I would be very pleased if you leave a comment. I will read every one too!!!
