Yesterday, when I stepped on the scale, it read 200.0, today it reads 200.4, which is fine because I know it will find its way back down.
I could not wish for a more wonderful Christmas present. I believe that by Christmas day, I will be below 200 by even a small amount. I have not been below 200 for 20 years. WooHoo! Nothing can stop me now! My very first goal has been reached. From here on in, its all gravy. (maybe not a good choice of word lol
When I got below 200, I told myself a few things would happen. I am going to try not to weigh myself so often. I want to keep losing weight but the 'urgency' is gone. It will motivate me to keep striving and working my SP program to the best of my ability. I don't know if I will adhere perfectly to those rules but I will do my best.
I am set for, and looking forward to, Christmas. I have left a lot of things off my shopping list, that I have bought in past years. Chocolate and candy only for the kids' stockings. Very few cookies and treats. Lots of Christmas oranges. One pie and one small cheesecake for Christmas dinner.
I do plan to eat everything I want for dinner. Including stuffing and cranberries, which are actually my favorite part of the entire dinner. I have figured out my maintenance calories, which was not easy, and will be on maintenance only on Christmas day. Before, and after, its business as usual.
If ~ and the chances are not good ~ but 'if' I slip up, I will not beat myself up over it. I will just carry on.
I feel confident ~ but not complacent ~ that this will be a wonderful Christmas, regarding food. I will do my best to 'behave' and my best is all anyone can do.
