After 4 days of feasting, the scale was not happy. I stepped on it this morning and it exploded.
Thursday – 167.2
Friday – 171.6
Saturday – 175.6
Sunday – 176.4
Monday – 180.8
Holy smokes! Almost 14 pounds heavier than last Thursday morning. Yeah, I know a good chunk of that is water but I am sure a good bit is real weight gain.
I actually thought I did a little better than Thanksgiving but the scale begs to differ. Oh well, back to work.
It will take me a few days to get back into Atkins. I’ve been starving all day today even though I had a decent amount to eat. I will behave New Years Eve but I am going to have my annual black-eyed peas and rice for good luck on New Years.
I am hoping the weight starts coming off tomorrow but it is possible I have some extra sodium to flush out before the weight starts moving down.
Breakfast – Turkey burger with cheese
Lunch – Chicken with salad
Dinner – Chicken
Snack – Turkey burger with cheese

My body is screaming for more carbs. After 4 days of going crazy on carbs, my body wants to continue the party.
Tip Of The Day
Someone on another site was talking about hanging their head low in shame for all the food they ate over the last several days.
Don’t hang that head in shame or get depressed. Holidays are meant to be enjoyed, even if you went a little crazy, there is no reason to feel guilty or depressed.
I don’t feel guilt or shame and I can almost guarantee I put on more weight in a shorter period of time than anyone reading this. 😀
I might be a tad shocked but I am not worried about it. I know I can drop that weight and get back to my low in a couple of weeks max.
You just need to stop the partying and get back to work. Don’t wait until the New Year to get back to work. Hit the diet hard the next several days. Have fun on New Year’s Eve, but then get back to work with the new year.
BUT…. don’t use New Year’s Eve as an excuse to party until the New Year. Work hard up until New Year’s Eve, have some fun, then get back to work.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
