I was shocked and really, really pleased to read the scale this morning. I was down another pound and met my mini-goal for the month with another week to spare. Not bad for the middle of the holidays.
Now I know that I'm about to start baking and cooking and celebrating. And that will mean a few more pounds when I get on the scale at the end of next week. But that is ok too. Because what I haven't done is feasted constantly from October through January. I kept most of the Halloween candy out of the house. I didn't start baking for Christmas weeks and weeks early. When I felt a little stressed and wanted to bake, the results were given away or put into the freezer (with packing tape across the mouth of the the gallon bags). I got on very good terms with roasted veggies. I kept walking, even though it's gotten cooler and rainer and a lot darker.
I am strong enough, stubborn enough and mean enough to keep up with the good habits I'm forming.
