but it's all good! my day still came out under 2000 calories.. which is too much to lose weight but not enough to gain. and 1 day isn't going to dramatically impact my weight, anyway!
the plus is... i still didn't touch the candy bar in the cabinet. thank god the ''all or nothing'' thing isn't an option for me anymore. i had an awesome dinner with the hubs... and it was worth it.
bonus. my brother told my husband that i'm starting to look like a totally different person :) i'm glad someone is noticing! hubby gives me sideways compliments all the time.. but he doesn't want it to go to my head, i think.. so it's not often. but when i get them, it really matters. thank God for the strength i've had in the past month and a half.... i'm so glad to be in a more manageable range of weight. i was mortified when i hit 285 :( now i'm in a body i can manage more easily.. i still have a long long way to go... but that first chunk of weight is the hardest! it's the habit forming that's a pain in the butt.
this is still going to be a tough rest of the month.. hubs is home. thank goodness we're super tight on money.. so there won't be a whole lot of food to be had.. except on our 3 days of christmas... christmas eve, christmas day, and his mom's christmas on saturday. but it's the holidays... and we're celebrating jesus and our family... i think it's special enough to lighten up on the nutrition nazi persona on those 3 days. it may impact my weight loss, but i'll be picking right back when it's all over.
Merry Christmas, sparkland!
we're wrapping presents today.. when the hubs and the girls get up from their nap.
