Okay, so family and friends are all well and safe-n-sound! We all had plenty to eat and drink--and I mean PLENTY! We were all together, at least most of us, and we had plenty of Christmas cheer!
I do love my family, not just when they are good and behaving, but unconditional love. I find that very special about my family because I do know people that do not have that comforting stability.
But, my family can also drive me crazy.
My DS and DD are home and fighting over what to watch on tv, at 24 & 27!
My mother being the harpy that she loves to project her opinion on everyone! Calling me a 300lb blimp when she knows I have been struggling with my efforts to get to 199 for 5 years, never even close to 300. She loves her exaggerations, no matter how it hurts.
And, my DH crashes my car!
Merry Christmas to me!
So? What's the plan? Well, not to dive into the cookies and chocolate! That would have been too easy. Looking for ways to pay for the damages to my radiator and headlight so the car is safe to drive. And not diving into the cookies and chocolate!
I start a new Dietbet on January 1st, to lose 4% by January 31st. That will get me closer to 199. I am pretty good at challenges, I am very competitive, and it always helps to surround myself with supportive people, especially SP friends! When I get within 1-5lbs from my first goal of 199, I crap out. I have been here 3 times before, and just can't seem to break that hurdle. New efforts! Maybe this bet will entice me to lose more than the required 4%, and break that road block, real or imagined!
I am at work today, gives me space from family. As I work through my anger, baby my swollen knee from the collision, and thank God no one was hurt, this too shall pass.
Already looking forward to next Christmas. Maybe Florida with the in-laws would be better.
2014 HAS to be better! Right?
