The Holidays Are Gone!

No More Holiday Foods

I am really glad 2016 is over. I hate the holidays when it comes to food. It’s not the food I hate. It is knowing that everything I’m eating is nowhere close to being good for me. I really did try to stay out of the high carbohydrate dimension, but it proved to be an overwhelming difficulty for me.

Yesterday, New Year’s Eve, I didn’t do so badly. I was mostly on the low carb side. Today I am all over it. I have bought my groceries for the month, and I am set to follow my low carb, high-fat diet very closely. This morning I had scrambled eggs with spinach and an uncured sausage made by Oscar Myer. It is a good start.

There are no more holidays coming up (at least not any that I plan to observe) that will derail me. On March 1, had I been able to stay on track, would have been a year on the low carb, high fat diet, or ketogenic. I had lost nearly lost 40 pounds with almost no effort. I have gained about 10 since Thanksgiving. Perhaps, if I had not gotten side tracked I could have reached my goal weight, or gotten pretty damned close. It was nearly 100 pounds that I set out to lose last March.

Now that the holidays are over, with all the high carbs and sugars that go with them, I am set to get some back on track. This is not a New Year’s resolution. This is something I set out to do around the time of my birthday last year (March 1). I am just continuing what I started. I will reach my goal. I will succeed no matter how long it takes. I will acquire the discipline in my life needed to reach my goal and stay healthy.

I wish you all great success in your endeavors this year. No one and nothing can stop you, except you. So let’s rock our perspective worlds and seriously kick some ass!

Happy New Year!

One thought on “The Holidays Are Gone!

  1. I still didn’t quite escape holiday foods yesterday. In visiting friends and neighbors I still encountered holiday treats & sweets. However, I am on track today.
