Feeling Sluggish

Hi everyone! I've been losing weight since September this year and shockingly I have managed to stay good over Christmas- including Christmas day, however my greed is now catching up now. The past two nights have seen me indulge in things like chocolate, crisps and cheeses, and I'm currently in a tentative stare off with a big box of celebrations. Can't seem to think of a reason not to eat the whole lot, which is daft because I have been a bit naughty already today...

Don't want to blow all my progress just because I've had a bit of a wobble, and justify it with 'but it's Christmas!'

Can someone please just give me a bit of motivation/ inspiration to get through this night without scoffing the lot because I know I will feel better for resisting! Thank you x

Hi I have only started today so I will try my best to help. Have a glass of water to try and fill yourself up so that there is no room for anything else. Could you give away some of the goodies you have so that you can stay strong.

My advice would be out of sight out of mind. I have put chocolates given as a gift in the freezer in the garage. Then the temptation is taken away.

Also agree with having a drink too. Hope this helps.

Just remember how good it feels to do something up that hasn’t fitted you for ages x

Was going to suggest throwing them into the back of the freezer then saw that Honey10 had already suggested that lol

Give them to a neighbour? Get someone else in the house to hide them? Eat them all then go for a 12 hour hike?? :)

I know it is late but you can do this!!!!!!! I gained 3 pounds over Christmas and am not too concerned as I have been losing 1 to 2 pounds a week so it is only 2 weeks and I will be back to where I was. I recommend if it is calling your name, freeze it or toss it. is anyone going to miss it? if it cannot be frozen then at least take it out of your line of sight. try to toss it out of your mind. I am not sure what you are talking about .. a box of celebrations.. but I can imagine it is like ice cream is to me. not able to resist. so, I don't buy it if I can avoid it. (hubby likes ice cream). sorry I am so late getting back to you, I just found this post but remember.. nothing tastes as good as thin feels!!
