Though I hate to be sizing up in my clothing, I am still 'determined'. This time of year is NOT easy for a diet plan. Starting from the end of Oct through New Years. The last week in Oct is a family birthday. The middle of Nov is a family birthday. Then Thanksgiving. Then the Hubby's family Christmas party has been on the Saturday after Thanksgiving for years and years. Then another birthday the end of Nov (mine). Then our family Christmas party. Then the church Christmas party. then open house for friends. Then the kids and grand kids here for Christmas night. IF my weight stays the same by the end of the year, I will consider this a great accomplishment. Because of Spark People I do keep a better watch then in years past and I just heard a report on TV that said a lot of people gain six lbs over the six weeks of celebrating. I have not done that for years. Looking forward to a steady loss in the New Year. For now I am just holding my own.
You're so right - there are so many celebrations and special foods this time of year it can be hard to stay on track! You're going into this trying to be intentional about your choices. Even if you hit some bumps in the road, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and continue to head in the right direction. Know that we'll be right alongside you, cheering you on (although I personally may have a Christmas cookie in my hand while I do it.....)! 24 days ago
