Grrrrr, holding steady this week. Okay, I confess, there was actually a half pound gain, but no one is stopping me from rounding down to the nearest whole number if I want to! On the positive side, my fancy scale says my body fat has dropped 1 percent since last week. My hunch is that I have lost fat this week, but due to certain feminine sensibilities at this time of the month it will not actually show up on the scale until next week.
My birthday is on Thursday and I will be eating cake. No, I will not feel guilty about it. I am not nor will I ever be on a diet. I’ve changed my lifestyle and part of that lifestyle is the ability to have a treat from time to time without abandoning my reformed ways all together. Birthdays were made for cake!
However, I am slightly wary of the upcoming holiday eating season. I started losing weight in January, right after the trifecta of dieting doom – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I haven’t had to run the winter gauntlet of temptation, but I think I’ll make it. I’m not giving out candy this year to trick-or-treaters. Sorry kids. I can’t have that stuff lying around and I know you don’t want me handing out dental floss instead. That’s a sure fire way to get your car egged. Thanksgiving and Christmas will probably be manageable too mostly because 3 of my 4 nuclear family members are all on South Beach.
