I am still in awe of your 9 pounds. But nice, chia seeds. I should check them out. again, WOW.


This was a great blog post. It's very hard for me to allow a cheat because it often doesn't stop there. I've been doing good though and staying away from sweets also which is my weak spot.

You can do this and for 6 months! On another diet bet Be LEAN For 2015 - Ultimate Holiday Challenge. Coach Gailsy, 58 game winner, has won $3000 and is taking herself to Hawaii - I thought her story was so inspiring. She got thin, won money and is going on vacation. Who doesn't want that? :)

Congratulations on your your success - 9 pounds is awesome - keep going. You got this.

crunchy snacks and 3 bite rule

Interesting. I couldn't do pork rinds but I am glad it helped you! Do you do something that calculated carbs for you? I do low carbs but just from a. Calorie perspective it works better!

Ok, so if you are engaged in the community - that helps, in LOTS of ways. We are in this together GF. DON'T let me down. You hear? Drink water, walk in circles. Do what you have to do but eating mindlessly is t one of those things! GET UP AND DANCE;)

When it comes to the Holiday season, I think way too many people are stressed out. To some extent, this is unavoidable. However, I think most of us add too much to the stress levels. Take a good, hard, brutally honest look at your season. What stresses you out? Where are your time crunches? Now, ask yourself why you do these things. Ask yourself would everything be ruined FOR YOU if you changed them a bit or just didn't do them at all. What would you like to add that would make you happier this season?
Example - Christmas lights, I detest untangling and hanging them. I love making people smile. So, I'm not hanging lights, but I am going to take the kids to a nursing home to hand out candy canes.
You may end up making hard decisions and break long standing traditions. You may piss some people off. Decide what's best for you and your family. Cut out the stuff holding you back from enjoying the season.
