18th December 2010 facebook email

If you change the belief first, changing the action is easier. Peter McWilliams

Well its stupidoclock on Saturday morning and I’m wide awake!  Hopefully I’ll get an afternoon snooze later maybe.  Haven’t slept well knowing the one stray cat has slept on the fence ;( he’s so timid and scared of everything he won’t got in the kat kennel unlike the other one who’s sleeping like a baby in his new penthouse apartment ;).

Anywho, for those that have asked my meeting times over the next few weeks they are at the end of this email.

Here’s a thought about overindulging on Christmas day – realise that even if you gorge yourself, you can’t gain much in a single day.  Your stomach holds only about 40 fluid ounces.  If you stuff it even a few times with average food during the course of the day, the average Brit consumes 7,000 calories Christmas day.  That’s about 5,000 calories (and a lot of ProPoints) above maintenance for most people – which means you may gain a pound.  The scales may say two or three pounds, but this will be largely water retention and digestion overload, which are temporary.  So please don’t be jumping on and off the scales every day!

Most importantly – don’t feel guilty – just get back on the wagon.  You’ve had your fun, just like everyone else, and you can resume your question know that you didn’t miss a thing.  It’s not what you eat Christmas day that gives you a weight problem, it’s what you eat from boxing day to the following Christmas eve.
