This week we’re doing the Christmas and New Year’s weigh ins! Even though most of our team gained weight, they are still hanging in there. So should you!
12/27/10–I had a nice Christmas but I was terrible – up 2.7. Mostly water weight I know – I feel terrible. Mentally and physically about this. I feel like a bloated toad. I know what I have to do, I just have to do it.
1/4/11–This week I am down 1.3 pounds. This is a true Christmas miracle and totally undeserved. I am however starting again, New Year, fresh start. For the first time I am doing this with my Husband. This is actually very encouraging for me. It will be very helpful for us to both be on the same page. I will be able to get rid of all of those carbs in the cupboard that I just can’t seem to resist. I am motivated!
12/27/10–Just a little “blip” …….. On December 27th, I was down to 111.8! That was down four pounds since the beginning (November)…..I was really happy and excited that after Christmas I had still lost……
1/4/11–However, this Monday (Jan 3rd), I was up 1.5 lbs, this was brought on by, bottom line, a snowball of eating on New Year’s weekend. It seems like every time Jeff and I have a date, it’s Italian (our favorite comfort food), which is how we celebrated New Years Eve, again bread, pasta, wine…..need I say more? Still yet, I have not been up to the original weight (115.8) since November, so I guess I’ll take the little bit of weight loss, and consider the New Year being a great start! I feel ready to work hard and stay focused! Let’s see what the New Year brings!
12/27/10 UP 1.9 ouch
1/4/11 up another 1.1 Total holiday gain 3lbs I think I went crazy on the carbs during the holidays I munched all day long and I think the holiday spirits (adult beverages) did help ….. New Year, New Beginning!
12/27/10 I’ll admit it, I had a great Holiday with family and friends. I was up 2.9 pounds. You know how we all have a “panic” weight – well, I am there! I have tried not to beat myself up but I am determined to lose this and get to my goal. New Years will be a challenge but I will at least maintain or try to lose a little weight. I know what I want but I am not mentally prepared to make it happen yet.
1/3/11 OK, although I had some “last suppers” over the weekend, I was down 0.5 pounds – Woo Hoo! I am finally mentally ready to put Weight Management University to work for me. I have buckled down and done three easy things right off the bat – eat slower and enjoy every bite, increase my water intake and think before I put anything into my mouth. Next step – set realistic goals and get back on track with journaling – did you know that people who journal lose and estimated 50% more weight than those that don’t – now that is significant!
