Today starts 3 straight days of "eating events".
Today is a pot luck lunch
Tomorrow is a Christmas luncheon
Friday is a ladies hors d'oeuvres lunch.
I MUST AND WILL pre-think the choices I will make and the quantities I will eat. The MUST AND WILL are because I want to. This time I WANT to stay at goal. I don't want to have "January remorse" and face another winter of trying to get the Christmas pounds off. I have really nice clothes that fit well now. They look nice. I like to get dressed in the morning. I like to go to the closet and have EVERYTHING in there fit me, and not have sizes 18-8 and be wondering what will fit today.
I feel well. I really feel well. I do some sort of exercise every day. I love being able to BOUND up the stairs! I love surprising myself with a glimps of myself in a mirror or window.
So this time, I don't want to give all this good living and happiness up for a piece of pie (or more accurately, the whole pie) or a loaf of fresh bread, or ANY food! I really just want to eat as much as my body NEEDS in a day, feel satisfied and happy.
So, today starts the 3 day marathon, and this morning I am PRE-THINKING AND PRE-PLANNING, so I will create a new history for myself. Dr. Phil always says "The best predictor of the future is the past." I agree, so I'm creating a BRAND NEW past.
