Blogging definitely helps me choose healthier meals. I've noticed that since I have quit daily writing, I am not as particular about what I eat. I am still entirely better than I used to be, but let's just say that I haven't lost any additional weight. What I do find amazing though, is that eating a certain way for 3 months really does change the way I think about food. I am always conscious about what I am eating. Even when I indulge, it is not at all to the extent that it was. The Christmas holidays have come and gone. Christmas Eve is always a special night with just the five of us. Christmas Day was a beautiful big party at my niece's house with tons of food and decadent deserts. In celebration of the day, I sampled it all! A couple of my nieces are pregnant, so I was lucky. Bigger stomachs really seemed to be in fashion.
