TEAM MISSION SLIMPOSSIBLES
I will put your two new team members on the Support Team for the rest of December, but they are welcome on the chat right away! I'll move them up to the regular team for January. Tally ho!

@raleighgirl09 - I so feel you on the stressful aspect of losing weight. @Katmary71 's comment ("As for feeling uncomfortable with people noticing weight loss I feel that way too, it's awkward and unsettling, like you're going through something personal and private and suddenly it's being commented on") has been right on for me.
Eating and body size and the state of one's body feel so personal, and they both are and are not.

A variation on that -- I was not totally prepared for people to ask me if I still had loose skin after losing so much weight. Um, do we really need to talk about what I look like under my clothes at a party? When did this become a thing you asked people? Or maybe I just have an off sense of what is appropriate? I can't tell. But at a certain point, I don't want to talk any more about my body. Thank you. Glad you noticed. Not glad. Arg!

And since I am now thinking about social aspects of this journey, there's also "You are doing so well, but why don't you do it my way?"
I had someone recently at a social event go through a series of questions about what I ate, clearly mapping it against how HE eats, and I just had to keep letting it go.
"Do you eat/ do X? I am eating that and it works really well for me."
(me) "Well, no, I eat/do Y."
"But don't you...?"
(me) "No, but I certainly do not think everyone should do what I do. Not at all. It's great you have something that's working for you! You do what works for you! It took me a long while to figure out what works for me, and now I am doing that. Everyone has to figure out what works for themselves. "
"But what about ... don't you...?"
(me, smiling and feeling awkward) "No... oh, look, there's so-and-so. I need to go say hello!"
Okay, enough venting. Must get to work on today's cooking tasks so I am ready to go to family shindig tomorrow!

Exercise- aerobics, strength, bike, Total Body HIIT
Tried a new workout app a friend recommended after not going to the gym, it was a fun workout plus I lifted weights at home, I'm going to be sore!
5 for 90 (can't believe the 90 is almost up!)
1. Gym 3xs a week- failed
2. Exercise 30 minutes- done
3. Decluttering- cans are full for Wednesday
4. Trigger foods- well, I bought 1 cup of walnuts to make maple walnuts for my salad tomorrow, some stuck to the pan and were too ugly for the salad so I ate them and don't care! It was just a little, but they're so good it would be easy to eat them all! Still have peppermint ice cream untouched in fridge. I fully plan to eat a healthy dinner and a lot of dessert but not to the point of feeling sick.
5. Upcoming goals- don't eat so much the next few days that you feel like vomiting!!!!! You can always have cookies or ice cream, they may not be the same exact ones but that's no reason to disrespect your body.
Happy holidays everyone!
