Here I am at just below goal. My plan is to get 5lbs lower so I have room to experiment with maintenance and not be above goal. Trying to maintain above goal didn't work for me in 2015 and it took me slightly more than the year to battle my way the 10.5lbs back down. So after I got to goal this time, I lost another 2lbs. That is my absolute maximum weekly loss these days so I was well pleased.
I had lots of plans for the bank holiday weekend, which I ignored in reality! I was OK for breakfasts going for porridge and fruit, which is one of my lowest kcal but most filling. We had planned some holiday dinners out, and I had come up with with versions of a healthy meal for all our likely venues.
BUT some of them changed to worse choice venues. Those meals weren't as planned as they might have been.
Where I really went wrong was in not having a planned lunch, so that turned into a snack feast. And I went for the thick bread and butter, peanut butter etc all the high fat options. When I checked my daily totals, it was the unplanned but high kcal snacking that had taken the totals so high.
Really scared when weigh in time came. Mr Flytrap, my partner in crime, had put on 4.5lbs. I was dreading it. But I only put on 1lb. So still a lb below my official goal weight. I was one happy bunny! I had totally gotten away with it.
Another weekend away to the same place today but better planning being done chez Flytrap. We will still stick to the porridge and fruit for breakfast, but this time we are taking the ingredients for a properly planned lunch and some OK dinners. Hope to walk more this time too. I didn't mind getting it wrong once, but if I don't learn from that, it's a mistake wasted. I will report next week on how I do this time. And if I keep my fingers crossed, I won't be able to pick up so many nibbles!
Happy weekend planning the rest of you.
