I cut back the amount of food I ate by 1/2 and on the 5 day I increased my serving a little to keep from plateauing. Still continued my daily activities, doing nothing different. At least not yet.
We went on Vacation to Florida for a week in October and I managed to eat out and gained only a couple pounds. Which came off fast once back at home. This Program I am following is really good for me. I enjoyed the vacation and did not have any guilt in eating stuff. I did walk and swim a lot. That helped in the extra calorie intake.
I have meet my previous goal. So, now I am setting another one. 10 pounds by January. At the point I will be closer to my ideal weight. I really think this is doable. Even with the holidays. One thing To remember is enjoy the holiday food in moderationo. Here a photo of now. I will look for one of before. I tend to not like photos of me.
