Hi everyone.Wondering how everyone made out during the holidays with the program. If you gained nairy a pound, good for you! If you're like most of us, you might have a tale of woe.
I did the BFL challenge over the summer and lost 35 lbs and made great progress in the gym. Between Thanksgiving and New Year, I was very sporadic in my workouts and had some very bad meals. There were holiday lunches and holiday dinners, holiday parties and get-togethers for those going out of state. There was even an apocalypse party. I'm kinda glad I don't have to worry about any parties until the Superbowl.
Over the holidays I gained back 12lbs. Not too happy about it, but I'm ready to get right back on the program and lose the 12 lbs plus 25 more lbs. That will put me at 120 lbs, where I usually look and feel my best. Yeah I bounced between 110 and 120 lbs most of my adult life without any problem. Then I turned 40 and my metabolism slowed. I'll be on this board periodically encouraging others and getting encouraged. Glad this board is here.
Happy New Year!
I Finished a BFL challenge this summer with good results, but like you, gained some weight back over the holidays with all the parties and celebrations. Jan 1 start date to get back at it! It feels good to work towards a goal again.
Yup we have another 9 months before we have to worry about putting on any "holiday" pounds. I figure next year, I'll be a lot smaller, so any holiday weight gain won't be such a catastrophe.
