Decisions about Christmas

The past few weeks (almost 2 months actually) have gone by pretty fast.

If I hadn't started my weight loss journey 2 months ago, I would probably still weigh 279 lbs (or more). Looking back, I wish I had started sooner, because I'd weigh less, but I am SO glad I started when I did and no later.

The decision to lose weight has been made, and it stands! Regardless!

I have been making wise food choices the last 9 weeks, I have been been tracking my food intake regularly (I have missed some days, but not even enough to call it semi-regularly). I've been faithful to exercise 30 minutes or more at least 3 times and up to 6 times a week.

My decision stands. Period.

I will not let Christmas be an excuse to eat poorly or neglect my body. I know that I can find the time to exercise. I know it will be hard, I know there will be temptations at every Family Gathering we attend. I even know that I may "screw up" a time or two. But Christmas will not be my excuse to overeat. If I do overeat or go off track, it will be because I made that decision.
And I will not blame Christmas.
And I will get back on track.

If anything, my love for Christ and my desire to honor Him with my body should keep me from going for seconds or being too lazy to go for a walk.

Ok, my decision has been made.
I am ready to enjoy Christmas.
What about you?

  1. You've made a good decision! The holidays are about so much more than the food. I'm going to enjoy it without going overboard. :)
