Happy New Year!!! Ending this challenge at 1.7.8!! So my next challenge will have the same goals as this challenge! My sister and her family leave today so my house will go back to normal and all holiday food is out of here!!

Pixikat - I took your lead and called my weight change what it is "Christmas gain" - and I updated my ticker and profile - not going to lie - I hate that I have to re-trace steps!! Hoping the scale is good to you today!!

Sue Looks like you will make the challenge!! Congrats!! Thanks for all of your support this past year!! Can't wait for everyone to make it to 230s, then Onederland!! 2014 will be great for all of us!!!

Best wishes for an on-plan and downdowndown day!!!

So, final analysis is that I didn't make his goal, but I did get halfway there, and I had the lowest Holiday gain in many many years while still enjoying myself and staying checked in. So in summary, a success. (Trying very hard to overcome my perfectionism!)

207.6 Jan 1

Before the holidays I was doing very well.

During the Christmas holidays (on our trip) I ate carbs but stayed checked in and somewhat in control (one meal was a planned indulgence, but there were other carb days that hadn't been planned)

Did a great job of getting back to strict low carb on the morning of the 26th.

Had planned another carb-allowed meal on Dec 31st but thanks in part to this challenge (and in part to the memory of the recent carb indulgences) I decided not to indulge in carbs on New Years Eve as planned.

The period of Dec 26-Jan 1st (included) was higher calorie than usual for me, and contained much more cheese (and he last 2 days, whipped cream). No doubt that factors into my recent weights.

I allowed myself to indulge in cheese when others had fancy desserts. And on New Years Eve and Day I had plates of red berries, which was het first fruit I've had in over 100 days.

And now, a turn back to the stricter low carb diet, watching protein and keeping a cap on calories - confident my weight will keep moving down in 2014!

Wannaskipandlaugh as far as I am concerned you met your goal!! Congratulations!! I am not a fan of any numbers after the decimal point!! 9 pounds down during the holiday - that is a miracle plus hard work!! You ROCK!!!

Sarah - You put it all in perspective for me!! Over the holidays each year I could have easily gone up 10 pounds - and this year I did not! Yes I was up but just to where I was when I started the month! Thank you for making me think...

Lulu, I am constantly fighting my perfectionism. And while I'm motivated by some of the time-based goals in fact what I really care about is doing my best over the long term - sometimes the time-based goals help me with that. But then I make myself be realistic and generous and kind to myself if the scale doesn't cooperate (because often it doesn't).
