Think I'm almost finished

Whew! I've had some mad dash shopping trips these past few days, but I think I'm finally almost finished shopping for Christmas. I thought I was finished last week, but I had five more people thrown onto my list at the last minute so had to buy for them. The house is decorated, the tree is up, most of the presents are wrapped. I'm NOT baking cookies this year so I dont' have to deal with that or have the temptation laying around. We only have two parties that we are going to this year also. Only one will have tons of junk food. The other is at my parents and they are really healthy eaters. Only a couple of tempting treats and the rest is healthy stuff. Anyway, I will enjoy myself at both of them and not let it get to me. This is the only time of year that I eat these types of treats so I'll enjoy and worry about taking the extra calories off after the fact.

I've actually been doing really good on my eating. I told myself last week that I was just going to shoot to maintain my weight loss over the holidays and it's actually had the opposite effect on me that I thought it would have. Instead of going out and eating all the tempting treats I come across, I've passed them by. Hmm, could this be a bit of reverse psychology at work? I guess I'll find out how well it's working when I weigh in. I'm still shooting for a maintain, but hey, a loss wouldn't be bad either.
