Good job. One thing I want to remind you of and that is, you don't have to have a perfect diet to live a healthy lifestyle. Studies actually show that those who are too restricted as to what they can and can't eat have a much harder time in making this a life-long commitment. So give yourself some wiggle room. Life can and will get in the way of our best intentions. The notion is to keep these periods under control by allowing us say one cookie instead of 5, only to vow to start all over tomorrow, on Sunday or after the holidays.
THANKS to your husband and you for the service to our country and enjoy your time with him.
