The Promise Diet™ -- a Radical Approach to Permanent Weight Loss

To Binge or Not To Binge on Christmas Day?!?

I weighed 201 at the Y this morning -- I'm about to break below the 200s! BUT, tomorrow is Christmas, a free day from my 2500/2200 and "no sweets" promises. I've been debating with myself whether I should just eat normally and keep the weight loss momentum going, or fully enjoy the day and put off reaching my goal weight of 185 by another week or two. (I'm going to have exactly the same dilemma on New Year's Day.)

At this point, I'm planning to eat well, but not totally crazy. My family is planning to eat the evening meal at the local Mongolian Grill, which is going to be open, so that will help my calories out, as that place is as low-cal as it gets. (We moved into our new home two days ago and haven't unpacked the kitchen yet and thought eating out would be a nice way to celebrate as a family. We've "catered in" lasagna from A Taste of Italy for lunch as well. :)

My family's making brownies as I write this and at midnight tonight I'm going to get me a brownie and ice cream sundae!

I just can't express well the peace of mind I have knowing I can "climb down off the wagon" tomorrow, have a fun day, and then resume everything again the following day, no problem. That truly allows me to enjoy my fun days and illustrates the power of the Promise Diet to radically transform lives permanently. I am so thankful...

Merry Christmas to all!
