Since yesterday was Halloween I was a little worried about how I would handle all the candies and goodies that seemed to lurk around every corner all day. I am happy to say that ....I didn't do so bad! I wasn't perfect - I still wanted to partake, BUT I did so in a very limited fashion. During the day at work there were tons of baked goodies, which I had a little of, but I made sure to not overdo it. At night, the family had a cookout and we all took the kids trick-or-treating. I took a bottle of water with me and drank from it instead of sneaking a candy here and there. AND, we didn't eat ANY candy when we got home! This was a first for me. In years past, DH and I would raid the kids' candy once they went to bed, justifying it by saying "they're only snack size".
I told my husband last night that I was proud of both of us for not indulging like we usually do. We even talked about being able to wear some awesome/sexy superhero costumes next year as incentive to keep losing weight. I would be love to be Wonder Woman and feel good in it!
If we can keep this momentum going, we will be able to make it through the holidays without gaining weight. Now that would be a first for me!
