I have my official starting over weight. I didn't gain as much as I had feared, but I did gain 15 pounds. My new starting weight is 170 and I want to get to 145 this year. I also want to improve my strength, and finish the quilt for my bed. DH is trying to set find a multi day bike ride every month for the year. January is hard since we can't take the tandem to Hawaii. But we do have one in Feb, so I need to get started training for that, too.
My January resolution is to track all my foods and stay in my calorie range.

New Years is coming and I am seriously starting over. Starting when MIL got sick in June (doesn't seem that long ago) I have been very bad. I have intended to get back on the wagon, but found one excuse after another and haven't. So, New Years will be a new beginning for me. I am going to update all my measurements, so don't be surprised when the weight goes up 20 pounds or so. I was so close to my goal, then blew it, but my goal for 2011 will be to reach that goal. That should be about 30 pounds (we will see Sat when I weigh).
I will once again be doing the monthly resolutions for those of us who cannot maintain yearly ones. Smaller resolutions are much easier to stick to than great big ones at the start of the year. I suggest we all make a list of goals for 2011, and break them down into 12 smaller ones that we can work on each month.
We can do this!

Had to work today, but we close early on Sat, so I got off at 5. Went by and picked up the grands to spend the night (hope I don't get called back). After we ate dinner, it was time to do the annual gingerbread houses. I decided to let them decorate by themselves this year, and they did pretty well.
I'm glad they were small houses, or I would have had to go get more candy.
It is raining now as the cold front passes. It is supposed to stay below freezing for the next 3 days. Since I don't work again till Wed, I won't have to be out in it. Good time to be inside with some hot soup and a quilt in the frame.

Today was a day of laundry as DD#2 continues to move in things from her apartment. Not sure where she had all this stuff stashed in her little place, but guess we will make room for it. She brought her little pink (yes, pink) tree and we set it up in the basement. We got all her linens washed folded and put away. Looks like I really need to get MIL's things cleared out to make room. DD did help me with the layout on a quilt for a friend at work. It was a nice morning.
