Good Morning All & Merry Christmas! It's early in the morning and the kids haven't woken up yet. Today is day with so much meaning. It's Jesus' birthday. It's a time to spend with family & friends and make some great memories....But, for some it will be a challenge as it will be for me...The challenge will be how well we stick to our eating plan....I, for one will allow for dinner later by monitoring what I eat early in the day and this way I can enjoy a nice Christmas dinner without overdoing it or feeling guilty later because I gorged. Some, may feel they will eat as much as they want today because it's Christmas. That is ok if you realize ASAP you get back on track. For me personally, I need to stay in more control because if I do eat without a care in the world I don't want that to be the reason I can't get myself back on track. I've come too far. As of today I am down 91 pounds. I'm in shock as I write this. I feel like I'm writing about someone else. It's almost a disbelief. Whichever way you choose to eat, whether you make allowances for a bigger meal later (with more control) or today you make this the day to eat however you want just remember how far you've come up to this point (where ever you are on your journey) and don't make it a reason to undo all the successes you've accomplished so far...no matter the size of the accomplishment....I'm not a doctor & I'm not trying to be preachy so please don't think that...I still have a long way to go with my weight loss...the journey is far from over but I can say this so far that I feel so much better emotionally & physically & mentally with a 91 lb weight loss....Be proud of yourself for making changes & working on making a better you....Make 2012 a great year...Your year....Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
