Hello! It is now only a week until Christmas and I expect everyone is too busy to read much so I will try to keep it brief! This is the time of year where many people decide to go “off plan” and start again in the new year. While this is a personal decision, my advice would be to stay on plan the best you can otherwise when you get on the scales in the new year the task will seem more daunting if you have gained a lot! Why not have a day or two off plan and the rest of the time try to be as good as you can and sensible when you cant to minimise the task ahead in January! The choice of course is yours! I intend to stay on plan pretty much all over Christmas though with the odd extra maybe if we go out anywhere.
I think this is a subject I will be revisiting many times throughout my blog because this is something I find hard myself though I will share with you all how it is for me and anything I have found helpful and tips I have had from others in the hope that others find this process easier!
When you have been overweight or obese for so long and you lose a lot of weight it is extremely hard, I have found, to recognise yourself as the size you are and the person you have become. I believe that this is a process everyone struggles with to some extent though I think the bigger the amount of weight you lose the more your appearance changes and as such the harder this is. Please do not take this to mean I do not respect that it is hard for everyone as I know it must be but I only have my experiences to go by.
