The good: There was very little stress. I decided ahead of time to have a stress-free holiday this year. Just going into it with that attitude really helped me. I enjoyed time with my family, good food (I'll get to exactly how much and what in a minute), and good times. I think that this may be the first Christmas as an adult that I actually genuinely enjoyed from start to finish.
The bad: I ate a lot. A lot of JUNK. A lot of CRAP. And I threw my "good-girl Christmas Plan" from my last blog entry out the window for about 48 hours (Christmas morning through late last night). I have no idea how many PointsPlus I consumed. But I can assume it's somewhere in the 100+ range. Those tiny cookies and bite-sized candies really add up. Especially my vegan peanut butter balls that I made using mostly peanut butter, coconut, corn syrup, and sugar.
The Victorious: I honestly don't care that I ate too much. I have no fear whatsoever of long-term regain. If I gained anything from two days of gluttony, I know that it will be gone within a couple of weeks, and I will be able to continue on my weight loss journey with no problems. Also, I looked amazing in all of the photos (coming soon!) and the compliments from family who hadn't seen me since last Christmas felt great. Next year's Christmas plan: Don't make a Christmas Plan. Just enjoy myself for a couple of days and focus on family fun.
