Thank you, Gail. You are such an encouragement to me. I can see that you know the Lord well and I am so grateful for your prayers. I hope you are coming away from a good Christmas season with good anticipation of the new year. Ruth

Post holiday blues? I definitely dont' feel that way. I LOVE the moments of relaxation afterwards. I actually took off the 26th and 27th, so I had FIVE days off. Awweeeesome!

I'm sure I've gained, but I'm not LOOKING at it. I tracked it every week. I should go see the damage.

SO MANY GOODIES!

I am not signing up for BLC24. I sometimes feel like it is just too much extra on my life right now :(

You're at 228. I'm somewhere near 215. C'mon lady, we've got to get it together!!!!!!!!!

Cheers to 2014!!!

Pheeewwwwweyyyyyyy did I eat a lot of goodies this Christmas!!!! I'm about 10 lbs away from my heaviest weight and just yesterday I FELT it. Normally my weight doesn't generally impact me, but I felt sluggish and insecure. Not a good feeling at the holidays.
Phew, family drama maintained stable. We usually do very well at the holidays, as to not ruin everyone else's celebrations.
Had dinner with a cousin last night (technically my moms first cousin, so whatever that makes her to me: 2nd cousin?). Anywhoo, we had family-gossip time, so that was funny.

Whats new on your end? Did you have a fantastic holiday season? What'd you do?
