Oktoberfest... are we still celebrating?
Catching up with friends and family is always fun and Saturday night was no exception. I kept my alcohol to a minimum and loaded my plate with fruit salad and fresh vegetables. I took smaller portions of the sausage, kraut and potatoes so I could feel like I wasn't depriving myself. I also kept filling my cup with Crystal Light Peach tea (my favorite non-alcoholic drink) which helped a lot. I'd given myself the day off from journaling on Saturday which turned out to continue on Sunday since we ate left overs.
By Monday I'd emailed my fabulous sister-in-law asking if she would please take the rest of the left overs. She agreed and came to pick them up on Monday night. My leader, Karen, congratulated me on doing this and said that food like that will be in the waste or on the waist. She's so clever, isn't she? Apparently what she's teaching is working because I weighed in 1.4 pounds lighter this week.
