Christmas celebrations - oh dear me !!

Well everyone, here we are the Friday before Christmas. What a week I am going to have with my Christmas celebrations with friends. I decided to track my points but with Core ...or should I say satisfaction foods. I went and visited Jo and Ron and by the time I got home I couldnt be bothered to eat as I had lost my appetite. I know this is not good - it is hard to eat when you are not hungry. God why is it one way or the other. Tonight I am going out with my best mates Joanne and Ron for our Christmas dinner and Ron's 55th birthday celebrations. I have planned my meal with points. Thought 2-3 glasses of wine, rice and my basil beef stir fry and may not have an entree but if I do will have cold rolls - they are mighty delicious. Today started off a bit strange, decided to go and have a coffee and some toast at a cafe before work. Anyway they had this beautiful Italian bread so just had that and some vegimite with a coffee - when I worked out the points - with the margarine thought I could have had a better choice, I have saved points but am skating a fine line with my points to incorporate tonight's meal but must say that I prefer Core as it is a bit easier and more flexible but at the same time slightly stricter - does this makes sense?. Tomorrow I am going over to my friend Michaels - we will have take away so will opt again for a stir fry of some description. Making plans to go home so unsure if I will blog whilst I am away - my mother is sneaky and at present this weight loss thing is a personal journey and she will only say "not again" or roll her eyes. Anyway I wish everyone on WW or in bloggerland all the best with trying to keep our weight under control over the Christmas period. Weighed myself this morning and the scales are down which is good and a reminder that all the hard work, planning and perservance will be worth it in the end.

Hey mate, it's been a busy couple of weeks here so have just caught up on your recent posts! STOP being so tough on yourself, you're doing great - need to keep focussing on all losses (even the small ones) being positive and yes I know I need to practice what I preach.

It's so good to see you blogging, you're going to achieve great things in 2009. When are you going to BH? Need to catch up and soon, throw some dates my way and we can work something out, I don't go back to work until the 12th.

Oh and Gill isn't at all what I expected ... lol ... you've talked about her so often over the years and i'm not really sure how I pictured her but it was a surprise to put a face to the name.
