Today I have learned again that too much of a good thing is very bad! Yesterday was such a great day that all those goodies just slid down so easy without thinking. Those that I was aware of were so delicious that I made excuses for them in that it was a holiday, I never make them, almost my last chance to have them, I deserve a treat and so many others. Today, like an alcoholic, I am left with the aftermath of a binge. One of the biggest effects is that I don't want to stop and am super hungry for sugar! My brain knows better but my body is saying that a new year is coming and I can start again then, meanwhile enjoy the leftovers and party hardy! This constant battle is wearing me out. Anyway it's noon and so far so good. It will be a minute by minute fight today. All I can promise is that I will do my best and feed my husband as much junk as I can since it's just not in me to throw away food and I've given away as much as I could already.

Hope everyone had a great holiday and today is a good day for you too!

    I need to empty my fridge of all the food! I "got into " the mashed potatoes today. I am trying to give stuff away. People are saying-oh, I don't eat that! or --I am in a hurry I don't have time to take it.

    This is the part of holidays that is the hardest. I had to remind myself constantly of making good choices and sticking with them. Fancy christmas baking was only done for those people that ask me to make them some treats and it left the house within the hour of making it.

    I refused to even try a bite of treats when I was at other homes, it would just set me off and I absolutely refused to have a gain with my hard won lbs lost for the last year. I may not have lost much in terms of other people but for me and the health battles I have, it was a huge accomplishment and I greedily wanted to hang on to it!

    So yeah, I didn't indulge, I have learned my lesson from years past, with weight gains a nd out of control blood sugars through holiday feasts. I don t have to beat myself up, and I found when I didnt taste it, I dont miss it. I also parked myself away from food wherever I could. At the smorgasbord I attended, I passed all the tempting dishes on down to the other end of the table, and kept better choices around me. I did not taste anything sugary and therefore beat that beast before it even raised it s head.

    I wish you good luck to get back on track, and away from treats and things that entice you.
