Today, I realized that it’ll be prob the first year in MANY years that I will have not gained weight during the holidays. And what’s even more awesome, I will undoubtedly lose weight! #luvthiswoe
Yep. Truly liberating.
Same here…Cheers to that!
Great! Feels good, doesn’t it?!
They have a program through my work called Hold It for The Holidays. You can either choose to not gain, or lose 5lbs or more from Thanksgiving to New Year. I started Keto October 1st, so when the sign up came for the program I signed up immediately knowing I would not only succeed, but probably also lose more than everyone else.
Me too! I am a super slow loser right now, but I don’t even care, as long as I’m not gaining.
My goal is to lose weight when my body wants to lose weight and to not gain weight when my body doesn’t want to lose weight.
Not gaining weight during the holidays is a wonderful feeling. I have eaten a couple of items that are NOT ketogenic, but when I was done with them I knew that I could walk away and leave them behind. In the past, I would sit down grab a utensil and dive into whatever food it was because my failing diet made me hungry or depressed. Not KETO. I can enjoy a bite and move on. That being said, I more than likely take the bite and realize that I no longer have a taste for that food.
Having that scale stay put is great, keeping my new lifestyle and feeling great is priceless.
It is so nice to not worry about the weight gain. I have had a few treats that aren’t keto, however I have been satisfied with a taste or a small piece, not a huge slice or serving, or multiple servings. I have passed over many treats that in the past I would have gobbled up and then felt miserable. Loving the holiday season this time around.
I lost 9 lbs during the week of Thanksgiving after a long stall. That was a great feeling physically & mentally! That would have been an impossibility in years gone by.
