Well... I didn't make it. I ate sweets. I often don't realize how mindless my eating is until things like this happen. I was standing by the kitchen table talking to my fiance when it happened. I grabbed a piece of gingerbread that he had brought to the house and started munching. I had eaten the enitre piece before it dawned on me that I was failing the weekend challenge. I was like "Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! I wasn't supposed to eat sweets!!" But, done was done, I couldn't not eat the cookie. (well, I could have, but I wasn't willing to) I simply didn't think of what I was eating at all. Mindless munching gets me everytime, which is exactly why I need to be better about my tracking, so there will be less mindless munching. So, I didn't make it, but hopefulliy I learned something.

I opened my Sparkmail this morning to see a weekend long challenge to go along with the December Dash Aweight the Pounds Challenge. This challenge is, I hate to say it, No Sweets ALL WEEKEND!!! Egads! It is a good challenge for me, because I love me some sweets and need to get away from them. But the thought of going all weekend without so much as a nibble is daunting. Perfectly doable, but very daunting. No sweet tea, no cookies, no candies, no cakes, no nothing sugary sweet. I need to stop going on about it before I psych myself out. This will be good for me, I need it. I need to pull on my big girl panties and Just Say No to sweets this weekend. That is my goal. Pray for me, because I will need strength to do it, LOL.

Well, I weighed in this morning, and while I didn't have a loss to record, I did maintain the 2 lb loss from last week. Considering that I have a certain Aunt visiting this time of the month and I want to eat anything chocolate that can't get away from me, I figure that ain't too shabby. I also must confess to the fact that I really haven't been working out this last week, which I am sure affted my stats, and though I have tried to be good while eating, I have failed often. So, I will take my maintence of weight with good grace, and be happy it wasn't a gain.
Next week is Christmas and so it is time for me to get cracking on getting my house company ready. Yes, my house has different cleans. Everyday clean, family clean, and company clean. I host Christmas breakfast at my place, and next week I need the place company clean, so I am going to turn on Hoarders and get to moving, LOL. I hope house work burns a decent amount of calories.

Well, as I have been obnoxiously announcing off and on, yesterday was my birthday. It was, for the most part, a good birthday. I got almost all my Christmas shopping done, didn't have to cook dinner, and had the day off work. Then I had my little birthday party at my grandmother's house, which was nice. My grandma baked a spice cake, I ate a piece. I hadn't eaten hardly anything all day, I had been saving calories for my cake, and it was worth it, LOL. Then came the silent but loud as an airhorn weight comments in the form of clothes purchased way too big for me. True, they didn't actually say anything this year, which was fabulous, but when I opened the bag with the 3x shirts, shirts that are two sizes two big for me, I was reminded how they see me. They didn't even ask what size I wear, they just bought what they believe I am fat enough to wear. Please don't think I am trying to put down anyone who is or has been a size 3x or larger, that isn't my intention. It's just, as a big girl, I feel like the size I am is big enough, it hurts when people give me things that are even larger. Maybe it is stupid, but it is how I feel. Especially after loosing almost 10 lbs recently, eating healthier, exercising more. Here I have been all excited about my progress and my how I have done so far and the fact that people still just see me as obese is deflating. I shouldn't fuss, it is nice of them to get me something, it is supposed to be the thought that counts, but, honestly, I could have lived without these thoughts. I know that sounds ungrateful, but it is the truth none-the-less. I love my family, but they sure know how to get under my skin...

LOL, I am full of myself this morning. Tomorrow is my birthday, I have the day off work, I am going Christmas shopping, I am buy a new outfit for myself and enjoy the day with my fiance. I lost a whopping 2.6 lbs this week. I am having a hard time believing it and still am wondering what on earth my scale was smoking before I got on it. I actually weighed myself three times this morning because I was convinced it was wrong. To make things better I am just feeling super smoking hot walking around in my jeans that are getting baggy. The bagginess of the jeans isn't really that faboo, but the fact that they are baggy because I am working toward my goals and becoming a healthier me is . I could stand in front of the mirrow forever today. Of course, this is a good weigh in high, so I am going to enjoy it while I can and then come back down to earth. Mother Nature is about to pay me a visit so I am sure I will have weight fluctuations and bloating and grumpiness before long, so I want to record my uber hapiness today before hormone gloomies attack me. LOL
Here's to hoping everyone has a day they feel smokin' hot real soon and also some to chase any gloomies away.
