Surviving Santa

Well Christmas Day has come and gone and I must say that after missing out on dinner and treats last year, I was expecting to GO NUTS this year. But, I didn't!! I had a fantastic Christmas! The spread of food was incredible. HOWEVER, I had only one plate..only one plate!! I took a little of everything. One thing I made sure to do was load up on the steamed veggies, spinach, baked sweet potatoes and turkey...that way there was very little room left for all the complex carbs (triple cheese baked macaroni, 2 different types of rice, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc). I had a little of each (just enough for a taste). I was so full. I also had one glass of white wine. For dessert, I had a piece of apple pie and that was it!!!!!!!!!! I felt satisfied and GREAT!

Throughout the last few days, I did nibble here and there on treats (cookies, chocolate etc) but it was nothing crazy. I'm really pleased with how things went!!

I SURVIVED SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I stepped on the scale today and I am happy to report that I DID NOT GAIN any weight, however I did not LOSE any either!! I stayed the same and I must say that I am very happy with that.

Now it's back to the grind and realities of life. The journey continues so it's time to put the plans into action!! 2010 is just around the corner...

OH, by the way, you may have noticed that my reward for hitting 170-pound mark (losing 88lbs) is to see a fabulous concert or play...well thanks to my hubby, I will be going to see Alicia Keys perform in March when she comes to town...the tickets were one of my Christmas present!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Next reward a New York City Shopping trip!!!

Until next time

Excellent work staying the same!

Alicia Keys...I am jealous. I am sure you will have a wonderful time. Wouldn't it be cool if Jay-Z showed up???

What a great reward! It's also a reward that you had a great Christmas and didn't gain any weight. Great for you! :)

Isn't it funny with how we can be satisfied with such a small amount of food? The difference for me was I was never eating before to be satisfied- I wouldn't even check in on how full my stomach was really feeling until it was screaming at me!

Good job girl!
