That Just 'Aint White

Had a great Saturday. I ate just under 1200 calories today.  I drank all my water and fluids.  This was great considering that tonight we attended my son's troop Christmas feast.  There was all kinds of food there, but luckily some good options. I had some turkey breast, green beans and a lot of salad with very little dressing. I passed up cornbread, dressing, hot rolls and desert. I think I did pretty well, considering.  I am looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow. The scale is showing a loss and although it may not be a huge one, a loss it is. 

Tonight I'm channeling  one of my bloggy idols... Mr. Jack Sh*t. I wrote this little ditty-a new take on a holiday classic which will stick in my head like glue as a reminder of what I REALLY want for Christmas and the New Year. I feel almost wrong to desecrate such a time honored song, but it's been rumbling around in my head all week and I had to go ahead and share it.  No reason I should be the only one to suffer. Ha ha! Enjoy!

I'm dreaming of a THIN Christmas.
Just like the ones I wish I'd known.
Where my jeans will button
and I'm no glutton
who eats until I start to groan.

I'm dreaming of a THIN Christmas
With every calorie I log.
May you make good changes within
and May all your Christmases be Thin.

I'm dreaming of a THIN New Year
just like the ones I've never had
Where I can go swimming
Without kids screaming
And finally make my doctor glad.

I'm dreaming of a THIN New Year
With every snack and taste and bite
May you exercise and always eat right.
and May all your New Years be LIGHT.
