When I started Phase I on 12/1, I wasn't sure I'd make it this far. After all, I've started and stopped more times than I can count this year. And of course each time I've had that built in failure plan. But this time was different somehow and I'm not sure why. I'm not going to question it. I'm thankful for my success thus far.
Speaking of which, drumroll please.....
In 15 days of SB Phase I:
7 pounds lost
7 total inches lost (among 11 measuring points)
This is even with a few cheats along the way that I honestly think have kept me on the wagon far longer than I've stayed before. It's been little things, like a little sugar in my morning tea, or a gingersnap or two.
Holiday treat making presented its own challenge this weekend. I tried the mint gum in the mouth while I worked so I was less tempted to eat my work. Then I remembered that I LIKE mint chocolate! So I switched to Orbit Bubblemint. Bubble gum, mint, and chocolate? Ick! SO that worked quite well. Luckily I got a big package of it, so there's plenty left for the rest of the treat making to be done.
I'm on my way....
