Well, my nostalgia for winter weather obviously was heard on high. Our normally balmy Texas temperatures have plummeted. It got to a whopping 43 F today and is supposed to labor up to 39 F tomorrow and Monday. Brisk! But I LOVE it!
I dug into the back of my closet and unearthed my old sweaters and turtlenecks. To my great delight I can still wear them, though one or two seem a wee bit too snug for modesty's sake. So even though I gained back the five pounds I had lost prior to my wedding, my body seems to have started to re-proportion itself since I've made an attempt to be more active daily.
My goal for the next month and a half is to hold the line on my weight. No additional weight gain, and maybe chipping away at the five pounds that returned on vacation. I accept the fact that there will be tempting things until the new year. But I resolve to taste only a little and NOT pig out. And in between temptation, I shall walk. Yes, indeed. It is brisk and lovely. And I shall walk while it seems like winter in Texas.
