Holding the Line During the Holidays

Monday, November 22, 2010

On Saturday night we went to a Christmas party with a buffet and dance. My plan - I will eat what I want, I will not go for seconds, I will have some wine, I will have fun and I will dance. Seeing some foods I have not eaten for a long time, such as white buns and pickles didn't tempt me (nice surprise), but I tasted most of the other things. When the music started hubby and I danced and danced - 2 hours! I weighed in this morning and I am down .4 pounds from Saturday AM. It may not seem like a lot but I am happy to see it trending in the right direction as the holidays start.

I am getting excited about the Winter 5% Challenge which starts next month. If you would like to join a supportive team and have fun while you lose weight, please join us.

    Way to go -- your plan worked and goes to show that while holding the line on food choices and portions is important -- so is thinking outside the 'food box', to dancing -- and fun! Keep on enjoying the holidays!

    What a great way to burn off the holiday calories! Your food plan is also an excellent example of how to live healthier, but still LIVE IT UP! emoticon emoticon

    That dancing sounds like fun, and a great way to digest the food.
