As the Thanksgiving weekend comes to a close, I have much to be thankful for. We spent some wonderful time with family and friends and enjoyed much delicious food! I gave myself permission to enjoy myself this weekend without recriminations. And that actually made it easier to restrain myself. I did gain a couple of pounds this weekend, which is certainly not my goal, but it was only a couple of pounds instead of 5 or 10. So I can live with that. And tomorrow I get back into the pool and get back into a good exercise routine.
I did keep a close eye on my blood sugar levels and kept them in the proper range. But with a little planning, I was able to enjoy many of my favorite holiday foods. And I bought myself some new pants this weekend at the Black Friday sales, and that is a BIG incentive to not gain more, but to continue to lose.
Tonight I will get my bag all ready for the YMCA tomorrow, then enjoy watching football and crocheting some hats. Tomorrow I will also post some updated pictures to show my progress. I didn't reach the first weight goal that I set for myself, but I'm going to do everything I can to reach the second one!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, with much to be thankful for. I know I did!
