The Christmas Challenge

Well somehow I have managed to emerge from that most gluttonous time of year, Christmas, with a net weight loss of 1.6 pounds. How did I do it? I haven’t got the foggiest idea.

I knew with the number of parties and celebrations I would be attending there was no way I would going to be able to keep a strict calorie count; so I decided at the outset I wouldn’t even try. What I did was visualize how much I remember eating during past Christmas seasons, and just try not to eat as much. I did indulge in cookies, pie, popcorn, and all the other goodies attendent to this time of year, but did my best to not eat as much as I normally would. And when I wasn’t at one of those functions, I tried to eat as if it were a normal day.

My only guess is that this somehow worked – or my body is waiting to play a trick on me by delaying the actual addition of weight to when I am not looking.

The danger now of course, is that I will look back on this and use it as a license to start eating those bad for me foods all the time…I mean I ate ’em at Christmas and lost weight, so why not just do that all the time. Hopefully being aware of that tendency, along with knowing I will have to explain myself if I do slip back, will keep me on the straight and narrow.

All for now
