Really, I'm Still Here!!!!!

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Hello, All,

First, I'm REALLY sorry I haven't posted for so long. Haven't really even spent more than 2 minutes at a time checking the threads. Family and holiday stuff just really crazy, and I've been working a lot of overtime at the job.

Had a bit of a stall over Thanksgiving, kept with the low carb, just ate too darn much for about a week or so. Gained about 3 lbs, and then the next week kept those 3 lbs. In response, I've scaled back my eating just a bit. I've dropped the berries temporarily, and am back to mainly meat and vegetables, with about an ounce of nuts as a snack. And an occasional Pork Rinds and Salsa treat. This week I was back to losing ways, and hit a new low of 258, which is 47 lbs down from where I started. I'd really like to be at 50 lbs lost by New Year's. Not sure why,it's arbitrary, but a nice round number!

I posted my wife's and my Christmas pic to my album. As for my half of the picture, it's one of those, "I like the progress it shows, but don't like how it shows how far I still have to go" pics. But, hey, I'll take the progress.

Today's our anniversary (10 years) so we're planning on going out to dinner, and I'm planning on getting a nice hunk of cow (I'm thinking a rib-eye) :-). BUT, I'll be forgoing desert :-).

That's about it for now. Just wanted to check in with y'all, let you know that I'm still here! I'll be more active after the holidays are over!
