Uh oh! It’s happening!

So I am writing tonight after a long day at work because I am beginning to notice some potentially serious post-wedding weight gain (my weight is currently fluctuating around the 125 – 127 level and my goal is to stay between 120 – 125 with 125 being my holiday max)…I need to kick it into gear and crush my growing fat cells in their tracks.  Here are five reasons I think I am gaining weight…

1) It is cold out and I could use a little extra blubber for insulation so I have the ability to rationalize not going to the gym and having a cookie instead

2) The winter season/holidays are making me want to eat my face off.  I am particularly craving items such as hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, anything apple-crispy-like

3) Things at work are a little crazy right now and it’s been a little difficult to make time for the gym

4)  Fun holiday activities and non-fun holiday obligations are keeping me very busy and well-boozed (alcohol = calories)

5)  Winter fashions allow for big boxy sweaters to hide big butts and wiggly bellies

I cannot allow myself to get out of control this winter – I have bought too many cute clothes that I want to be able to fit into this year and next!  Send me some inspiration for counter-holiday weight gain.

 

Xoxo,

Fat Girl

    As a woman who struggles with her weight around the holidays, I hear ya sista!

    I find that I can keep the weight off by wrapping presents, chopping down christmas trees, battling other women in line for the iPad mini and by playing a lot of dreidel with my jewish friends.

  2. First thing, you aren’t fat. But you could get that way unless you take control. Which is you are doing. Try tracking your food – it’s good motivation not to put it in your mouth if you have to put it on the list. I like EaTracker – google it 🙂
