Feeling great!

Saturday, December 26, 2009

It's Boxing Day and I'm pleased to report that I'm feeling great this morning!
I stepped on the scale and discovered that I haven't gained any weight! I'm quite surprised because I had decided to just relax and not stress myself out about staying 100% on track during Christmas. Instead I enjoyed small portions of my favourite foods and made an effort to only eat during mealtimes or snacktimes. I think that saved me from grazing on the goodies all day!

I haven't worked out this week but still my relaxed approach worked! I had actually expected to gain a couple of pounds, but that didn't happen. Now I'm back to the plan and can focus on improving my fitness in 2010.

I am so grateful for the friendship and support of everyone on this site. Without all of you I would still be struggling with my weight feeling ashamed and alone. Instead I'm filled with a sense of belonging. I am proud of what I have accomplished so far and I am sure that I will keep advancing along the path to good health.

    Congratulations on not gaining. That is wonderful at this time of gooey, yummy treats everywhere you look. Maybe it was because you were not stressing over the nutrition and allowed yourself a little treat here and there. Happy Boxing Day to you and your family. Let's look forward and make 2010 the best year ever!!! emoticon

    Well done for getting through Christmas unscathed. Even though you say you "relaxed" your eating plan, you were still careful and mindful and exercising portion control, which is what this is all about.

    I wish I could say the same, as I've been over-indulging in chocolates and mince pies.
    Here's to a happy and healthy 2010. Have a great New Year.
