November was a very stressful month for me due to a two week visit from a family member and getting the house ready for a senior. I'm glad to say I was able to get through this stressful period without gaining any weight and maintained.
The week after was not so good. I think I let my guard down and celebrated eating a little too much and found I had gained three pounds. As of today, though, the three pounds are gone, lost forever I hope.
I am proud of myself for not using food as a crutch when life was dealing me great stress. I will have to be careful to eat mindfully and not let my guard down in the future. Life is just one lesson after another. The rest of December will be a difficult time so I will have to be aware. Christmas dinner tomorrow evening and other celebrations. I plan to remember that I "Eat to Live" and don't "Live to Eat" and I should be successful. I think 2014 might be my best year yet as I have learned from my time on Spark.
Everyone please have a wonderful, happy holiday season. Also, thanks for reading my blogs.
