Two Down...

Well Thanksgiving is over and I made it.  Something else to add to my list of thankfulness!  I allowed myself 2 items I normally wouldn't eat out of what seemed like hundreds of those options.  I limited the amount too, just because I could have some didn't mean I needed to be stupid about it.  I made sure to have a large salad shortly before going, which I am sure helped.  I'm not going to say it was totally easy, but I also didn't feel entirely deprived.  Afterwards I'm positive the mental outlook was better than the alternative, for that I am extremely proud.

Later in the evening I was jonesing for some crack food, but I ate my leftover salad and drank some water.  Truly not what I wanted in the moment, but it IS what I wanted this morning and now I'm over it.  Since I didn't post my loss on Tuesday like I normally try to do, I'm greatful to be able to do it today... the day after Thanksgiving.  My weight was even down today from yesterday!  Without any further ado, my loss since my last weigh-in post is 2.8 lbs for a total of 83.2 lbs.

Halloween and Thanksgiving survived, now the Christmas season is calling my name....
