I am not one for New Year resolutions so I am starting TODAY to recover from weeks of giving away (not "losing" because I was actively involved in my behavior) control over eating desserts and cookies every day .....Yesterday afternoon I finished the ginger cookies (my grandmother's recipe) that my DH requested (along with butter cookies) for the holidays and as much as I love those cookies, I was sad that I have lost so much discipline. In fact, that seems to have been my continuing theme this year - somewhere along the line I lost the discipline that I used to have. This year I did recover as far as consistent exercise is concerned, though, and I am thankful for that. Now I am 4 pounds above maintenance instead of 2 and the downhill slide ends today - I have been good so far today and even though we are headed out for dinner, I will have salmon and vegetables (no rolls!!) and one glass of merlot. I will, I will, I will .... and I shall report back tomorrow.
Happy New Year to all!
