Since it was Christmas, I celebrated by having a dessert after dinner. I usually reserve a dessert for when I attain a milestone weight loss ending in a zero. However, in the spirit of Christmas, a dessert was in order after a nice turkey dinner.
At the movies, I included a popcorn along with my usual diet soda. This was the first popcorn I have purchased at a cinema, and only my second popcorn since I started my weight loss in November, 2009. Again, a Christmas celebration was in order. I devoured that popcorn, boy was it good. Ironically, before starting my weight loss, I was more prone to purchasing candy, Butterfingers or M&M’s, not popcorn at the cinema.
Now that Christmas is over, no more popcorn for awhile. It was so good, I could easily get in the habit every time I go to movie, and I will not let that happen. I may consider one popcorn a month if my weight loss is progressing as planned. If the weight is not where it should be, no more popcorn until the weight meets goals. Desserts will also be reserved for weight milestones, my birthday, and of course, next Christmas.
