I was so determined when I left for holidays that I would stick to plan with a couple of small planned cheats. I did really well until I got to my sisters on the 28th. Once I got there I started eating and I couldn't stop! It was awful. I've been back on track since the 1st and have 7 more to lose to get back to where I was. I'm so mad at myself for slipping but the main thing is getting back on track. I'm determined to be a size 8 by summer!

Good for you! We all fall down but the answer is to not stay down. So, get back up, dust yourself off, and start anew. This is a new year, and by summer every one will see a new your!

Your stats are so FABULOUS! You know....I tend to think of weight gain over the holidays (or while on a week's vacation) as part of a NORMAL cycle for weight maintenance. Like...even if you were a perfectly normal person who had always been at a healthy weight, you would probably get on the scale after the holidays and think--wow, I've got to lose a few pounds! So...it's just that we're maybe having to "re-lose" weight that it feels so daunting, but...if you think of it as a something that even "normal, healthy weight" people go through.....??

Just keep up the great attitude and progress! You're very inspiring :)

Yep, I agree. There's no need to fret over something that you can't change so just move forward from where you are. You'll be in those size 8's before you know it!
