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!
