No weigh-in this week due to Christmas

Thursday was Christmas so there was no way to count calories, and I broke down and ate a bunch of cookies and candies. :( I did the same on Saturday when everyone brought tons of sugary and fatty crap to church.

Calories eaten Friday: 1304
Fat: 13g (9%)
Carbs: 113g (36%)
Protein: 100g (32%)

Calories burned in exercise Thursday: 167
Calories burned in exercise Friday: 167
Calories burned in exercise Saturday: 0
Calories burned in exercise today: 309

I'm fat. I have gained not just weight, but actual fat. My jeans are tight, by belt is tight, even my thighs are bigger. I have sabotaged myself on Saturdays, and with the holidays and parties I have been off plan two days a week pretty much every week. And the day is fast coming when I will have to bite the bullet and weigh myself. :(

I'm going to have to cut back. No more carb snack after my workouts. Now I will just have my protein shake to protect my muscles. So the name of the game is how much can I go hungry to get my calories down?

I'm trying to find a liquid iron supplement - something I can take with few calories so I can stop eating all the Cream of Wheat, get my carbs down, and hopefully lose some weight if my carbs are so darn high. I found a couple online so now I have to go scour the stores. It looks promising in terms of carbs and calories - much fewer carbs and calories for the amount of iron than the Cream of Wheat. They are expensive, but I may be able to get them covered through my health assistance.
