It's one week until Christmas!!!! Then it will be the New Year! A new year for you and me. A new year to see the start of a new beginning for the all of us. We are like the fat woolly caterpillar, who will soon be turning into the beautiful trim butterfly. Our transformation to something new and wonderful!!

Those were great, Corinna...words to ponder for sure and so true!

darius 12-19-2013 04:55 PM

Those are all good quotes Corinna.
Thank you Corinna and Renee for the words of encouragement this week.
Today is Friday weigh-in day.

I went as low as 135.1 earlier this week but it went back up yesterday and this morning..

Goal: 30 lb
Start date: 6 Dec 2013

12/06...138.6 kg ....start
12/13...136.3 kg ....-5.1 lb
12/20...135.9 kg ....-0.9 lb

-6.0 lb TOTAL

Renee3 12-19-2013 07:29 PM

Darius, I think maybe it's better to weigh just once a week...but, you are doing great!

Corinna T 12-20-2013 07:04 AM

Still a loss, and that is what counts. No matter how great or small, you are moving in the right direction.

Renee3 12-20-2013 09:54 AM

I think I will stay far, far, away from the scale tomorrow....I feel like a beached whale. All I've been doing is :eating2: :cookie:

darius 12-20-2013 07:46 PM

Renee and Corinna thank you for the kind words. Renee I know what you mean, I was off plan yesterday even though I was so busy, going to two schools. I weight this morning and didn't want to - I was half a kilogram high.
The best thing about this is that's possible to recover from it and just have a light day or two and we're back on track.

Corinna T 12-21-2013 06:38 AM

I went back up 2 lbs. LOL. :) I knew I would with the holidays approaching. Too much Christmas cookie sampling. They are good though.

Tomorrow 22 December is the longest day of the year. Hope you all spend it being festive and have fun. Remember crunch time is coming. Enjoy it while you can.

Renee3 12-21-2013 06:44 AM

Weigh-in was not good :( I will be purging the house of cookies and candy come the first of the new year :yes:

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Corinna T 12-22-2013 04:25 AM

Did lots of walking today. Felt good. Temperature dropped just a bit, so it made the heat a bit more bearable.

Went Christmas shopping for some last minute items, but no luck. Well, I have a just a couple more days so I should be okay.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!! Look forward to supporting each other in the New Year to reach our goals. Enjoy this holiday season.

:tree: :xcheer: :ginger:

Corinna T 12-23-2013 04:28 AM

Wow, we have been getting some rain these last couple of days. It is a big event because it doesn't rain very often. I am calling it our wet snowflakes for Christmas. I can pretend they were snowflakes somewhere way up there in the clouds, but melted on their way down. The temperature has dropped to around 68 degrees too, which is a big difference from being over 100 degrees the last few days. Since it is nice out, I went walking in the misty and sprinkling rain.


Renee3 12-23-2013 06:11 AM

Raining here today too and it's 56 degrees, which is extremely warm for this time of year...we should be in the 30's. No white Christmas here, all the snow we had washed away :( Today I will do a quick shopping trip to pick up some last minute things for my Christmas eve dinner. I made cookies yesterday and told my husband and son they must be gone by the first of the year :D
