"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. "
I was VERY motivated to keep on track for the holidays since I'm finally at my goal weight after a year and a half. I watched my portions was able to control myself with the sweets and did very well!!!

Had a few bad days (3, I think), but not in a row. I gained a few pounds, but luckily I (purposely) went into the week of Xmas/New Year's a tad bit under goal, so had a little cushion room. It's incredible how long it can take to lose the weight, but how quickly one can put it on! So unfair! lol
Striving to maintain!

No, but it didn't do too much damage. I think I carried a lot of my new good habits along with me.

Thanksgiving was the beginning of the great diet hiatus! Too much wine, too much food, far too many relatives. I gained a fair amount back, and now it's time to get back in the saddle!
Do or do not. There is no try. (Yoda!) 10-2013 Update: I changed my mind, Yoda is wrong. I am accepting the journey with all its challenges. Sometimes I will falter, and that's okay as long as I am heading in the right direction!
Goodness, no! It would be fair to say that I went so far off track that I ended up at a different station.
And I don't regret a thing

I DID let loose and have fun... but did not gain, so that's a win in my book.

Didn't lose Didn't gain
Did allow a few indulgences - a glass of wine with a couple meals; a cookie or two
All in all - not too bad. Just hope that the scale remains friendly while my body adjusts to the extras I've had.
