“You know your pants are too big, right?”
“Why yes I do. Thank you,” I say to my friend (and Weight Watchers Lifetime Member) Doris with a big Cheshire cat grin.
I’ve always had problems purchasing pants. If they go around my hips, I could fit a small dog/cat in the waistband gap. I’d purchased several pair of these pants originally, because they fit fairly well. But, last time I had on a pair (actually the last 2 times!) my gut busted the seams around the zipper. Not now. I don’t even really need to unzip them to pull them down!
That felt really nice, especially coming off a Christmas party the night before, where I enjoyed light appetizers and stuck to my guns – avoiding the it-looked-so-good-and-juicy-prime-rib carving station and plethora of oh so delectable desserts. Not only did I slip my slacks on easily, I lost a nice hefty 3.8 pounds. Take that prime rib and tiramisu!
I’m actually even looking forward to Thanksgiving. I’m not super worried. I have a plan. I’ve been earning activity points (check out this link for what food you can “earn” with some common activities), staying out of my weekly points allowance, I know what I’m preparing (and the points plus!) and I have some healthy-but-you-wouldn’t-know-it substitutions lined up for some of the highest points items on my list!
I’d love to hear some of your strategies to stay on-track throughout the holidays.
Now, excuse me, I’ve got to go take a walk!
