OK, the holidays are over. The tree and decorations are down and put away. Life is back to normal (kinda—still waiting on job news…). And how did I do in the weight-loss quest? Surprisingly, better than I’d anticipated.
Food is my comfort. Food is my intrigue. Food is my part-time occupation. Sometimes, food is my friend. But sometimes, not so much. When there’s food around, I sometimes feel powerless to resist. Case in point: I’ve grazed on the bell-shaped red and green gum drops on my kitchen island for more than a week. That may sound like a lot of restraint on my part, but you don’t know how big the package was. 😉
So today I chucked what was left into the trash. Gum-drop liberation! And that was before the weigh-in.
The average person, they say, gains 6–8 pounds during the holidays. So I figure, if I lost 2.2 pounds since Thanksgiving, it’s like I actually lost 8–10 pounds! (It’s called “dieter’s logic”! Faulty? Perhaps.)
So roll the drums. Here we go—

This new week of the new year, it’s onward and downward (scale-wise, I mean!) From this point on it should be easier. I’ll let you know if that’s really true.
Until tomorrow, stay confident and resolute!
