Every time I put on another pair of pants or jeans that didn't fit in November, I am encouraged.
I have not failed. In fact, I planned this all quite carefully. Start the plan on 12/1. Give myself a little break during the holidays, see how I feel. Well it turns out that I have not been all that interested in cheating. Sure I HAVE cheated. Who can resist Christmas cannoli?? But I split that cannoli and half was just enough. I get sick when I eat too much junk now. I get sick when I don't feed myself properly.
I've maintained my 7 pound loss through the last week and a half. Now I have just a few days "vacation" left. I'll start Phase I all over again on January 1. This time, I think I have the added participation of DH, who informed me yesterday that he needs to "drop a few". (He's also been wonderfully supportive... every time he makes a phone call for dinner, he chooses a place where I'll be able to find something reasonably SB friendly on the menu, and only half the time after I've said "but there's nothing for me on that menu" :)
Our Ravens are in the playoffs and I'm not worried about playoff parties. The first one is at my house, giving me the control over what we're eating. That ought to help.
Happy New Year, Sparkers!
