Thanksgiving Damage

I weighed 265.7 lbs the day before Thanksgiving. I will weigh Monday to see what damage, if any, the holiday brought.
How's everyone else done during this time of holiday eats??

    I'm sure I did awful....I think I turned Thanksgiving day into Thanksgiving week I just ate a slice of pie for lunch :ohwell: oh well weigh in is Monday I'm not looking forward to seeing the scale!
  • I did pretty good. Stuck with small portions and didn't over eat. I weighed in yesterday and I'm the same as last week so no gain for me.

    I dont know about anyone else, but these kinds of weeks seem to take a 3-6 days to catch up to me on the scale! I seem to have maintained (didn't go crazy on thanksgiving), but I am worried about next week. So I am planning on REALLY measuring and watching what I eat this week, and trying to burn and extra 1000 calories this week too.

    I asked my husband to put it away for a week (I'm slightly obsessive and weigh everyday anyways) because I know I ate too much and drank too much and I want to give my body some time to even back out before I weigh again :(

    There are statistics that say that most women (averaged in a poll) usually only gain 1 pound between Thanksgiving and New Years. Thought that little bit of information will help some of you that feel like giving up after a downfall (like I do). So keep at it, and dont let the festivities of the holiday season bring you down! Good luck everyone!!! Cassie
  • My weigh in is Monday. I really hope I at least stayed the same. I feel guilty for everything I ate. I have been doing soooo good. I guess we will just have to wait & see

    I weigh myself on Monday, but I did not go over my calories on Thanksgiving thanks to planning what i was going to eat ahead of time and sticking to it.
  • I have been steadily lossing around 2 lbs. a week since Oct 1st (Over 20 lbs. to date :smile: ). However, all the good food and break in my work out routine this holiday have been noticed. I weighed in this morning and the good news is; I didn't gain! Didn't lose any either.
    Oh well, time to go burn some calories! How many calories does putting up Christmas lights burn?

    I'm going to weigh in on Monday and see. It seems what we do, good or bad, takes a few days to catch up with us.

    I know I went over on Thanksgiving and I logged and went over by 200 calories the day after. :ohwell: I didn't do anything crazy though. I tried to fill up on the very healthy food and only got very small portions of the sweet, not as healthy stuff. My sister was here. We had fun trying on each other's clothes. She's doing MFP too and we've both lost quite a bit. It was GREAT to have someone here that REALLY understands and has the same goals. She is 5'10 and I am 5'4, but we now weigh exactly the same. We got some new, skinnier pictures of us taken to compare with a couple months ago. Fun, fun!

    I feel so guilty.:embarassed: I haven't booked my meals for two days, been eating at the in-laws and food restriction duing the hols is a no,no there.
    My husband's sisters make me smile, they refuse to have sugar in their tea but will eat cakes and other sweets, even candy-floss. :huh:

    Dreading the weigh-in this week, hope the damage isn't too bad. :frown:

    I didn't feel like I did that bad but I can gain/lose weight ridicuously. I weighed 183.4 Thanksgiving morning and this morning I weighed in at 188.4. Do the math it's 5 pounds in 2 days. Back on track and ready to rock so the residual weight "gain" will even out.

    Good Luck to everyone getting back on track (or staying on track)! :smokin:

    I really blew it Thanksgiving! The scale said I gained 1 lb. but as someone said earlier, the real damage may show up in a few days :sad: . I worked my butt off (I wish :laugh: ) today though to try and get a grip.

    Damage was done!
    6 lbs gained!
    Back on track and I will still meet those "mini goals."
