You bet!



"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

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

1/2/13 12:13 P

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!

Didn't really track but didn't really put anything on either so happy with the overall results.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I thought I was going to gain a lot as I let myself eat whatever I wanted for 3 days or so but managed to stay the same. Very happy with that.

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 emoticon

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.
