Could just be a normal fluctuation but hoping that's a good sign that I did actually do OK while I was away. Could've just be some alcohol weight that I've already gotten rid of. But not using that as an excuse to slack off! The little progress I have made so far is so motivating to get to my goal weight, I know I can do it.
The two major things I did differently on my holiday was firstly, make an effort to do some sort of physical activity every day. Sometimes it wasn't much, just a walk, but with all that extra time it was so easy to make sure I had some time to be active. Secondly, on most days, I stuck to just having three meals a day. Because they were usually out at restaurants, they were big meals, which I never at all of, but enough to leave me full until the next meal. And even though I was surrounded by chocolate and chips (the girl I went with had stocked up) I usually didn't feel like eating them, even when I was sitting around just watching TV or something. The few bits of junk food I did have left me satisfied instead of craving more. I think I've turned a corner with the way I look at food and the types of food I crave (can't keep track of how often I crave an apple!). I'm really excited for a new me.
ATTA GIRL ROCCA!!!!
I knew you'd shed that holiday gain in no time flat!! Bit by bit, you'll chip away at it, till its all but a distant memory!!! Keep going, you'll knock it over easily!!!
As for how you handled yourself during your holidays; that's awesome!!! WELL DONE!!! Your approach and attitude to food/eating and activity is probably what prevented you from hitting the 1kg gain; so great stuff, good going with that!!! Just think, by the time you go off on another holiday, you'll be a real pro at handling difficult food situations, and should come back if not the same as when you left, maybe even lighter!!!
