129. 2 Doesn’t Fit.

I think the title of this post pretty much sums it up.  I am at 129 pounds and my standard size two pants barely fit me – if I squeeze into them and I am okay with some severe muffin top and maybe a small dose of camel toe, than yes they fit, but I am 100% not okay with either of those two unsightly characteristics when it comes to how my pants fit.

I resolve that losing this weight and getting back to my goal weight range (120 – 125 lbs) will not be my New Year’s resolution because I want to be back at 125 by January 1, 2013 – I know this is a super duper challenge with holiday treats abound and calories just seeming to fly directly into my mouth, but I genuinely believe that you can do anything you put your mind to and I am putting my mind to losing 4 lbs by December 31.

Tonight, my company is holding their annual holiday party, which means that alcohol will be streaming from the bars and I’m sure lots of fried and sugary snacks will be pouring out of waitresses hands all evening long – this is going to be hell for the little Fat Girl trying to manage her intake of unhealthy little buggery food items.

I am a bit depressed about this recent weight gain and I feel like I’ve let myself down to be perfectly honest, which is not the greatest feeling to have around the holidays.  I guess that means I just need to pick myself up by the boot straps, close my mouth and start moving my legs like a crazed hamster on a wheel.

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.
