Another Holiday Temptation Hurdle Cleared!

Friday, December 11, 2009

BRR am I ever feeling the COLD these days without all my "extra padding!" As I said in my status update...this must be the only drawback to having lost the weight I!

I did well today at our agency's buffet luncheon...even if they DID have the blasted goodies all spread out on a table throughout the whole veggie trays and no fresh shrimp as they've had in the past...grrr! Passed up on the goodies, though and stuck with the roast beef with roasted cloves of garlic and mushrooms (yum!), salad w/ balsamic vinaigrette and broccoli...and you know...? I was STUFFED and couldn't eat another bite afterwards. It was great to feel so satisfied and satiated with my healthy choices!

Now: on to a busy weekend FINALLY breaking out the Christmas decorations and setting up the tree!

Sending out SparkWishes for everyone to have a festive, fun and healthy holiday weekend! :-)

    Funny - I just wrote a similar blog when I realized it was a loss of insulation causing me to have increased cold intolerance this year! Hey, I quickly stopped complaining and added another sweater!

    It's interesting to read about feeling colder without the extra padding - I've always been very "hot" even before I gained so much weight. So I'm curious about what will happen as I lose MY extra padding!

That lunch sounded really yummy! I LOVE roasted garlic! It's really good for you, too. emoticon Good for you for resisting all those EXTRAS!

Have fun emoticon getting ready for your holidays!

    Yeah, I have also noticed how much colder I am now that I have lost the weight I needed to. I thought after a while (4 years) at my current weight, my body might have adjusted. But, no!! Instead, it seems like I am even colder than I was before. Oh well, I just wear a sweater more often than I used to!

    UGH, I know! And I've never really gotten WARM clothes that actually fit me... So I end up layered like a crazy hobo in oversized stuff, too. HAHAHAHAHA Like today -- old Marching Chiefs Shirt, my grandpa's cardigan I "inherited", a hoodie, my old FSU Sweatshirt... scarf... hahaha. (Well that was for outside, inside I'm down to the cardigan and Chiefs longsleeve shirt.)

P.S. -- I'm going to not one, but TWO holiday events tonight. My plan is to eat as healthy as possible for dinner at the first event, no "treats". Then at the party eat ONE or SMALL SERVING of things I want to have and then cut myself off with some gum. (The first is a church dinner then Christmas Concert type thing, the second is my friend's annual "martini" party which is funny because we don't drink, but we always go cause it's her Christmas Party and she gives the best parties ever! We just stay out of the martini glass gift exchange.)

    Good for you - I didn't fare quite as well at our office party. But it's over! Yay! Do I sound like Scrooge? ;)

    Good for you!!! Keep up the good work.

This coming week is the week of holiday temptations for me:
It starts with Xmas dinner with my Zumba friend tonight.
Cookie baking on Sunday for the cookie swap on Monday.
The cookie swap on Monday
The holiday potluck at work on Wednesday. I am going to bring a salad with balsamic dressing and strawberries. (Then I'll know there'll be something for me to eat. ;o)
Present exchange and dinner with my son and his girlfriend on Thursday.
Holiday lunch with smaller group of co-workers on Friday.
After work party at local bar on Friday evening

Yikes!!! I am scared to death. But, I am determined to do my best.
...wish me success!

    Wish some of your will power would rub off on me! You are an inspiration. Tomorrow I will think of you and all the other inspiring SparkPeople I have encountered, every time I'm tempted to stray from eating healthier. Hope it works! Nothing else I've tried has. emoticon emoticon

    Why does celebration almost always involve food? Doesn't seem fair, does it?
I had to get to the point where I wasn't embarrassed to say "No thanks, I'm on a diet." or disappear when the food came out.
I do love how fast I fill up, now that I'm not eating the way I used to. And I can't wait to lose my extra padding =)
Happy holidays to you too!
