And it's certainly a major element of what we affectionately call, "THE HOLIDAYS".
My life is just like yours...and starting with Thanksgiving -- every single day was filled with delicious food I enjoy and look forward to. Many of our most treasured family traditions circle around food I only eat once a year...so the holidays are brutal if you're trying to lose weight. Ugh.
But, after spending ALL THAT MONEY -- and TIME -- to go to Fat Camp -- I was determined to push the reset button on my life and make better choices for myself during this very delicious, tempting holiday time. And I did.
The thing is -- there is nothing more boring than people who TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY EAT.
So you needn't worry. I'm not going to do that. I didn't do it during the holidays -- and I'm not about to start now.
You know I consider myself to be a VERY LUCKY PERSON -- and I feel that way every single day. Especially this year. During the holidays, my life was filled with wonderful events and parties. AND SO MUCH GOOD FOOD. Breakfast with my friends, lunch with people I love who are visiting for the holidays. Every celebration centered around the food...
|For example, the TMBC Christmas Tea!!|
|Sure, those little Christmas trees might be delicious...but that was not what mattered on this day.|
|The most important thing about the Oreo truffles was how much fun Lilly and Warren had while making them.|
|And I hope they always remember Grandpa's red and green sprinkle Christmas pancakes.|
The Holidays are a wonderful time to do some really important things, like:
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR PEOPLE.
GET OFF YOUR DAMNED SMARTPHONE AND HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION.
VISIT A FRIEND.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEBODY'S DAY...
P.S. This morning I did my Monday Morning weigh-in. I weighed 271 pounds.
