Well the scale is moving down - slowly but at least it is moving!
I haven't done as good as I should have but I'm doing it!! That's what counts. When I slip up, I don't beat myself up over it anymore. I accept it and move on.
I am freaking out over the Holidays! We are having a Thanksgiving dinner at work on Thursday. At first I was just going to skip it but I've been told that everyone should be there. I'M WEAK!!! Not sure if I will be able to make it through without eating bad! At least I have been able to talk a couple of my co-workers into helping me with providing a veggie tray and a fruit tray! As long as I eat the fresh fruit and veggies and white turkey, I should be okay. Then comes Thanksgiving with my family! Ugh... I'm weak! I love Thanksgiving. I love all the trimmings! Dressing.... yum! sweet potatoes....yum! mashed potatoes.....yum! desserts.....yummy!!!!
I'm going to try a couple of tricks that I got from another site. Eat a healthy breakfast, walk/exercise, eat a healthy lunch and a light snack an hour before our meal, and then go for a family walk instead of sitting down and watching TV. Then if I get hungry later - health snack! Put all leftovers away immediately! Lessing temptation! Need all the help I can get with that....
Then comes my daughters birthday, then mine, then my brothers, and then Christmas! Not worrying about these yet. Got to get through Thanksgiving first!
Hope you have a great and blessed day.
