Going Into the Season of Indulgence
Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Well, today I went to my last Tops (Taking off pounds sensibly support group) meeting of the year. I had done a lot of baking this past couple weeks, (alot of it for gifts for family(, or so I tell myself), but, for some reason, once it was in the freezer, I seemed okay about staying out of it. I ended up being down a pound at my meeting, and that took me into the 170's, which made me feel very proud for some reason. I know it's just a number, but I felt a sense of accomplishment. This year, I had lost 21 1/2 lbs in my group after gaining some weight back. I'm now 7 1/2 lbs from my lowest weight in my group and feel that is doable by June. I plan to indulge abit this holiday season, but also make some good choices and maintain some self control. I've had some really bad Christmas seasons before where it has taken me until the end of March to lose the weight I gained over the holidays. The thing is, I think I have a strategy. What a concept! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?!
