It's true!

Saturday, December 28, 2013

When eating, I rate every bite against this phrase. Is it worth eating? I am so glad that I do! There were only a few times that I ate things other than normal during the past month-long Christmas season and when I weighed in today, I find that I weigh the same thing now as I did prior to Thanksgiving!

Did I give up eating some traditional Christmas food?? Yeah. I did. Felt kind of sad about it, too! It didn't kill me, though.

Did I perhaps hurt some feelings because I wouldn't eat someone else's special dish? Yah. I did. Felt kind of sad about it, too. It didn't kill THEM, though.

Now that Christmas is over, do I wish I had done things differently? Nope. Not a chance! I feel great, I have not added to my stress by having to lose more weight. Friends and family are still friends and family. I enjoyed my time with them all. I treated my choice to not eat certain foods matter-of-factly so everyone else did the same. If they have a problem with what I eat and don't eat, it is their problem not mine. I really do not worry about it.

On Christmas morning I opened up 2 pair of jeans from my hubby. I was able to slip them on and wear them without any problem.

I can tell you with no hesitation at all that is IS true!

    I have to agree. I actually took a cookie, didn't find it to be "good enough" and THREW IT AWAY. And I will do it again!!

    I did same as you.

I did not eat the wrong things at christmas

Like choc. or any sweets.

I feel proud.

I also have started exercise with the one group. I now call my home buddies.

The Leader has us in a challenge.

I let go the other groups.

They were just not motivated for my liking.

Only you are as a go getter.

Your one blog you wrote you wrote said it all.

That is why I left them.

Great about your new jeans hubby got you.

emoticon You must feel good and hubby too. For knowing he dont have to exchange them.

    I just read your profile down right side on your page.

Where you have your the daughter of your wonderful parents.

Praise the Lord. I am also the child of the King.

And he had tough love in the bible. Many times.

He threw over the table in the market.

He talked about having faith.

He talked about oh little faith.

Who have we to be the best Motivator of all right?

He even calmed the Sea.

    Isn't simply a wonderful feeling when you pass on things that you just know aren't going to do you any good. I too weigh in the same as before the holidays. Such a good feeling
see, we are in control of what goes in our mouths and we can do this.
Happy New year!
