Well Christmas has come and gone (very quickly I might add) without too much stress or over-eating. This year, being healthier, has made me think of all the years past that I ate, ate, ate without even giving it a second thought. This year was way different. Christmas eve day was mostly traveling. The boyfriend and I stopped at Subway where I had a salad for brunch. Dinner at the grandparents consisted of ham sandwiches, cheesy potatoes, pasta salad and beans. I ate two (small) ham sandwiches and about 1/4 cup each of the cheesy potatoes and the pasta salad. Time for pie after that which I completely avoided. :-)
Christmas day was dinner at our house with the boyfriends parents. We made turkey tacos so I knew exactly what I was eating and how many calories I was consuming. Didn't even go near my top range of calories for the day :-)

I even steered clear of the Christmas candy/cookies. Over this whole holiday weekend I've had 3 peanut butter balls and two rolo treats. For me... that's excellent. I used to be able to finish ALL of the peanut butter balls no problem... those are the my favorite!

When I first started doing this weight loss it was for me, but it was also for my grandparents. Every year we sit at the table at Christmas and I listen to them ridicule me for being overweight and for not doing anything about it. This year was exactly what I was hoping for. Pretty much the second I got out of the car my grandparents and aunt were all over me telling me I looked so good and they could tell right away and asking how much I've lost. My grandma even emailed me after I left telling me how proud she is of me and how she is excited for me to keep going. THAT is what I wanted. That is what I was looking for. Now the rest of this weight loss is for ME.

Debating on what I want to do for a new years resolution. I don't think its gonna be weight related since I'm already working on that. I think it might be more in the way of organization. I feel very unorganized lately and need to get that on track. I'll post another blog when I figure out what I want to do.

Hope every one had a very Merry Christmas... now back to the normal routine of daily life!
