Down another 3 lbs today! Looks like I'll reach my mini-goal of getting into the 180's before 2012!

Hope everyone has a terrific day!

Good morning everyone

Got confused as today is the 21st and I read the title of this threas being 12/20/11, so I thought there was no daily thread open yet! Then I figured out we are Wednesday indeed, so this must have been a typo

Being very busy nowadays at work, just wanted to say hi to everyone and hope you will stay strong during this holiday season.

Also, this is the first time I put pictures in my signature and I see a huge difference! I am so happy about my new photos

Have a good day everyone.

HEllo Everyone... Hope everyone is doing well! and staying away from all the holiday goodies! I know that I am!! I am just too far along in this to let it go over one measly holiday!
One thing I hate about Christmas is the family drama... That is exactly what is going on right now... To mkae a long story short. I convinced my parents to do dinner instead of breakfast... but now the sister is making a big deal about it... Since we always do things in the morning... So I told them that I wont show up. since I cant eat anything they have for breakfast. and my BF and I dont get his daughter til Noon, then we have to do our Christmas...

Anyways. I just needed to vent. I have no one else that will listed to me rant about how much I cant stand most of my family!!

Sandra, just open that file in paint and click resize by 50 and it will make it smaller. The picture you have now is the size that I have my pics as but just resize it with Paint and it should work. You look FANTASTIC by the way...what a difference!!...keep up the hard work

Tomorrow is my 3rd WI. I have done a ton of baking and haven't ate anything! Also, all those Christmas parties with people eating all of those yummy treats right in front of me! I am not craving them-it's my head!!! I just think I would like to eat that. So my 1st WI I was down 5.4lbs, Week 2 I was only down 3lbs.....I was upset as I was hoping for another 5! I haven't cheated at all, and I gues 8.4lbs and 11 inches in 2 weeks is pretty good. Will post tomorrow's results.

How is everyone dealing with Christmas? Making it a Cheat day??? My mom is making her famous Christmas pudding that I am not sure I can resist!! I also need a little alcohol if I am spending 3 days with the family!!

Never be disappointed in ANY losses that you have no matter how small they are. A Loss is a Loss!!!....your average will probably be 3lbs a week so you will have small weeks but it all works out.

For Christmas I will have Turkey, Cauliflower dressing, Cucumbers and green beans. All of that food that will be there will be there again next year just like it has been for the past 45 years. One year without it won't kill me plus I feel great and I know after eating my meal I won't be stuffed and miserable like I have been in the past. Ok, so your mom will have her famous Christmas pudding, won't it be there next year? I bet you 10 to 1 it will!!!....is it worth having to not lose 2lbs?....for me the answer is no because I have that mind set. Anything I want will be there when I am done so it is worth the wait for me. As far as spending time with my family, there is no need for alcohol, alcohol doesn't solve anything AND will hold me back from losing as much as I can so again not an option for me. Christmas WILL BE HERE NEXT YEAR....this is a NO CHEAT program!....ok...enough of that, I am not saying all of this to be a mean person either, if you have read the boards at all you will see this is how I am, very truthful and honest....have a happy holiday
