The Bulge

I haven't posted about my weight in a while, mainly because all of the movement has been in the wrong direction, most spectacularly over Valleycon weekend, when I tacked on five pounds to reach a disgustingly excessive 418. Well, I managed to peel off a pound and a quarter last week in spite of nibbling to excess on Election Night, but that still leaves me quite a ways from my goal of getting down to 400 (if not below) by New Year's.

This is a bad season to be dieting in, too. Thanksgiving (the Feast of Gluttony), and Christmas (Avarice) followed by New Year's Eve are all infamous for rich foods and lots of drinking; fortunately I can't do the latter, so that's a plus. Well, if I can keep on eating sensibly and cut down the number of excesses, the weight will come off. Maybe I won't get down to 400 by the end of the year, but I'll be able to see it a lot better from where I plan to be.

If you count calories and do moderate exercise one can usually lose about 2 lbs a week. Just plan around the holidays. Eat light all week leading up to them and don't overdo it on the actual day, small portions is the rule for the day. That way you get a little of everything but not too much.

Sound advice. I hope I can follow it.

Well somehow I've managed to lose 35 lbs and still have ice cream 3-4 times a week. Granted it's Eddy's Light ice cream, but I still limit myself to just one small scoop. Just enough for flavor. The small portions theory works well for keeping cravings at bay.
