Little Victories

Life is all about little defeats and little victories.  The big stuff doesn’t happen that often, the little stuff happens daily.

I experienced a little victory this morning.  For the past couple of weeks, I have been doing my best to “watch myself” when it came to holiday eating.  I almost always put on the “Christmas Fifteen” very similar to the Freshman Fifteen. 🙂  Well, this year, that was different.

Don’t get me wrong.  I received — and ate — cookies, candies, and other assorted goodies.  I just did more in moderation.  When I got on the scale this morning, my net result for the past two weeks was -1 pound.  I will definitely take that to a gain of 10 to 15 pounds!

Now, if only I will be able to say that after coming back from my vacation to Disney in January.  I usually pack on some pounds there with the wonderful eating that we do.  I’m already preparing myself mentally to special ordering.  At some of the places we go nightly, I plan on make a meal of an appetizer and soup or salad and refrain from desserts.  And walking, of course.  Plenty of walking will be on order for the time down there.

I hope to be able to claim another victory toward the end of January.
