Awhile back I posted about my weight and so many of you gave me words of encouragement and advice that I took to heart. If interested you can go here to read it. Anyway, a quick update.
I didn't do all that great during the holidays. Oh, the hor'derves were in abundance and the pastries, cakes and cookies were just screaming for me to eat them. I obliged and stuffed my mouth till I felt like I was going to bust! I don't even have a sweet tooth...maybe my taste buds are changing though because I couldn't get enough! Even chocolate...I usually only eat chocolate once a month...um, yeah....but lately I can't get enough of the creamy dark kind.
Two more parties to attend this year; tomorrow night we will go to my friend Michelle's for awhile then to my mothers as we do every year to bring in 2009. Yes, I will graze the food table at both parties and yes, I will have a few glasses of wine and I will enjoy every. single. bite. & sip!!!
Then when 2008 comes to an end at 11:59 pm and 2009 rings in at midnight my free eating will come to an end. John & I have made a pact to not eat out as much. I think that is where I have gained the majority of my weight 'cause I tend to order the most fattening thing on the menu!
Somehow I did manage to lose 3 1/2 pounds since the post last month and keep it off despite all the snacking. I only have 6 1/2 pounds to go to reach my goal. Those cute jeans are patiently waiting for my hips to fit back into them.
I have been working out hard on my Wii Fit which I absolutely LOVE!!! This break I've been hitting the gym with John. It has been real refreshing to work out hard like that and to spend time with him.
Till then I don't dare look in the mirror!
