I have been thinking of how to tackle the holidays and the simplist thing I can think of to enjoy the holidays and still lose weight is to try and eat the things I love but keep them to a few days and in smaller quanitys, instead of spluging from halloween up untill newyears on anything and everything I can get my hands on.
I figure there are only a few days that I really need to worry about -
Halloween - not a problem, I had one cupcake and My tradition is making onion soup which is low in calories
Lyras birthday - chocolate cake - I hate chocolate cake so I dident eat any.
My birthday - I got my favorites, cheese cake and a gyro... but only ate half of each
Thanksgiving - upcomming - I plan on eating smaller portions and not having many leftovers, plus I am going to eat perfectly on plan for the whole week and exercise everyday so I should still lose weight only eating bad for one meal out of 7 days.
Christmas eve - upcomming - Im going to make a special meal.... but low calorie ..... I plan on drinking some eggnog though... I LOVE eggnog! I would drink it every day but Im refraining this year and am going to save it to be a special occasion for christmas eve. :-) I have been good and have not even had one cup yet this year.
Christmas day - upcomming - I traditionaly make Cinnamon rolls for breakfast and I plan to have one. We are having a big dinner on christmas day and Im going to use the same approach as thanksgiving.
New years eve - upcomming - I think I might get some sparkling water and alternate between sparkling water and mixed drinks.... plus limit myself to only two drinks. Im not a big drinker anymore anyway. :-)
Im going to stay on track for every other day except the days I mentioned and I hope that using this type of mindful eating I can still reach my goal of 203 pounds or less by new years day.
I feel confident in my plan

I feel like I had a really good day. I kinda struggled with the water a bit but Im drinking right now and the day is not over yet. I saw that FADEDONE fit into her size 18 jeans today so I desided to go and try mine on. I bought a pair at the thrift store three weeks ago, the buttoned and zipped but where very tight, I figured I would be in them by december at least. I tryed them on today and they fit great. I feel so good. :-) I have not been in size 18 jeans since I was in 11th grade, thats over 10 years ago. reaching this milestone really makes me want to keep the momentum going and reach my goal by new years. I hope I lose again this week... Im feeling thinner :-)
