I lost about 7 lbs after my first week on an official "diet". I had a few bumps in the road over the weekend but am back at it again today. I am counting down the days until my Christmas vacation. I have 9 days of work left (some weekends in between) and I can't wait. I do, however, worry about my eating during the holidays. My current diet plan is to drop some weight so that I don't have to worry about gaining a big chunk during my vacation. I know we will be going to a lot of parties, having family over, and all around living on an irregular schedule.
I wish eating was easier for me. I wish it wasn't always a struggle and something on my mind. I know I am in the home stretch before my surgery and things will be easier then. I also can't fool myself. I know it will still be a struggle.
I have been baking a ton, but not really eating any. It is full blown Christmas prep at our house with gifts being wrapped, decorations going up and so on. I am not huge Christmas person, but I am trying to really dig in this year.
