Happy holidays to those who celebrate!

I'm holding at 222, hopefully I can keep it together today. The family wanted to try something different from the traditional dinner, so instead we're just making tons of hors d'oevres and letting people wander around and pick all afternoon. For me, this is a nightmare! Grazing is how I got to where I was. But, I'm thinking of it as the ultimate challenge... I'm excited to see how I do. Bring it on!

I hope everyone has a lovely day!

Merry Christmas, everyone. May God grant each of you His richest blessings in 2012!

Enjoyed a wonderful candlelight service at church last night; the service this morning is a duplicate so I will stay home today. We wanted to have both as some people could come one time or the other, and especially to make it convenient for all our guests.

Diana, good for you for staying on plan. You are doing great. Oh and I found the berry MetroMint water yesterday... love it!!

Italiannie, congrats on making it successfully through Christmas Eve. Way to go.

Kitty, breakast casserole... mmmmmm sounds yummy! I love those.

Smess, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the hors d'oevres grazing would be hard for me, too! But you can do it!!! Just remember, you only want to eat it; you don't want to wear it!

I was really happy this morning as I have been "ready" to go down another pound for a couple days and know I have earned it. I was SO wanting it to be gone for Christmas and yayayyyyyyyyyyyyayaaaaaaaaaaaaay jumped on the scale this morning and there it was not! So I got a new mini ticker for Christmas!!

Current weight 194.8 - up .8 from yesterday
New Year's Goal: 189.9
I'm up a total of 1 pound for the holiday weekend. I'm pretty happy with that. I do think the lbs will be down tomorrow as I pump water and watch my food intake today. Going to have to be very serious to reach my New Year's Goal. All in all, though I'm down 4 pounds over the last couple of weeks. Because I usually gain at least 4 during the holidays, I'm thrilled. This week shouldn't have quite as many challenges.

We had a great day. My two sons (17 and 19) said they really enjoyed it - praise from boys that age! I kept it simple this year and really enjoyed the house full of people. Wonderful church service. Blessings upon blessings!

Looking to hear how everyone else's holiday was.

Happy Monday!

It was a nice, relatively calm holiday at our house. Unfortunately I ate more than I should have Fri & Sat (not to mention 5 glasses of champagne! ), then had way too much salt-laden things yesterday. As a result, my WI this morning showed 192!!!! Holy Cow...I hope this is mostly water weight! The interesting thing (for me anyway) is that I'm not freaking about this. Yes, I'm disappointed and intend to get right back on track. But I also acknowledge that these days will happen throughout the year. It could have been much worse...I passed up dessert Christmas Eve, I quit eating the baked brie and artichoke dip way sooner than I would have before. I had seconds on veggies and potatos, not bread etc. So in a way, it was still a NSV for me. I'm learning my triggers and habits so next time I can anticipate my behaviors and make plans.

Mamakat: Hope things start moving soon for you!

Italiannie: Congrats on the low gain. It certainly is a challenge this time of year! And congrats on the praise from your teens...a true victory!

qtkitty: Hope you're feeling better this morning and not really coming down with something. The casserole recipe sounds yummy!

Misti: WTG on the one pound down! Your Christmas sounds lovely. So glad you enjoyed it!

SMess: Hope you were able to take what you wanted and walk away from the food. It sems like it would be a two-sided thing. On the one hand, it's easy to overeat, stopping too many times, losing track of what goes in your mouth. On the other hand, you can load your plate at "meal time" with as much or as little as you want, and then leave it alone. You can take smaller portions overall, which keeps the calorie count down. Hope you were successful and had a nice day!

Diana: Thanks for the good wishes. I wish all the same right back to you. And thank YOU for being a part of my journey. You're truly an inspiration!

Hi to everyone else! If you stumbled a little over the last few days...Stop, take a minute to regain your footing, and start off again. If you stayed OP...Congrats! Take that strength and file it away for some future time when you may struggle. Either way...look ahead at all the success coming your way!

Hope everyone has been having a great holiday weekend. I'm utterly exhausted and doing nothing today. Weight is sky high, but it's temporary. I'm enjoying ebholidays and will worry aboutnthe holiday weight gain next week when it's all over. Being indulgent for 2 weeks a year is just going to have to be ok. No wind New Year's resolutions are so popular.... We feel so guilty after being so indulgent!

Hi Everyone! It's quiet here today. I'm assuming you are all getting back to the real world. Well, I took off the little over 1 lb from Christmas eating. Hoping to get under that next 10lb mark for New Years. Have a few to go. We'l see.
Hope everyone is back on plan!

Yesterday 194.8
Today 193.4 (-1.2)
New Year's Goal Under 190

Good Evening Everyone,

I saw an 80lbs loss on the scale later in the day. So I made DS grab his camera and meet me out of the deck. Wow, what a difference. We took several shots, the best one was without the wig, go figure. So I posted on Facebook for DH and everyone to see my next 10lbs. I was 207 in the morning, so wondering what tomorrow will bring.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Hanukkah. I had a wonderful teenage day (all my gifts were teenage appropriate. except for my document shredder which I didn't really need). I hope Santa treated everyone wonderfully.

Have a great night everyone.
