Gone but not forgotten—pecan and pumpkin pie, turkey and dressing, various sweet treats. They all still live in my memory. I have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.

I HONESTLY AM GLAD THEY ARE GONE. They will not stay away, of course. They will return in November and December—if not before. Sunday we had a pot-luck at church and it was like Christmas all over again. Maybe it was more like being at the Home Town Buffet, except better—much better.

Now, a few days into the New Year, I am eating less (I’m also enjoying it less) and I have already dropped a few pounds—very few. I am determined to keep this style of eating going until I lose a few more pounds. Each morning when I jump (fall) onto the scales I weigh a little less than the day before. I have my diabetes under control also.

As I begin the tenth day of the New Year I’m smiling. I hope you are too. It feels good!
