It happens. You go to a party or three, drink some wine, maybe even some mulled spiced wine, and eat a cheesecake or two. Then, you step on the scale and OMG WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?!!! I know. I’ve been there. I am there.
Take a breath.
It’s going to be okay. You aren’t going to balloon up 10-20 lbs in a week. It takes time to put on weight, and it takes work to make that a permanent gain. If you don’t want to make it permanent, get back to your original diet and your weight will get back down to where you want it to be. It won’t happen over night, but put in the work, take the time, and you will be rewarded.
It’s nothing to lose sleep over or to get upset about. You lived a little. You enjoyed those holiday parties, and the good times with family and friends. So now, you have to “Pay the Piper,” as they say. It is what it is, and you can’t change that.
So relax. Everything’s okay. If you don’t like your weight, you know what to do and how to do it. Just get it done.
