I just got back from a 2 week trip to NJ for the holidays and it was great being around family. However, that usually means lots of eating! I tried my best...I let them know before I went that I did not want to go to buffets (my parents love them but I never have). I limited the sugar (cookies, cake, etc) and ordered salad when I could. Before I left on my trip, I was back up to my starting weight of 318. I weighed this morning and I'm down 4 pounds! Not bad for being on vacation, eh? I'm not moving my weight-loss ticker until I get back down to where I was - below 308 - but I'm on the way back down thank goodness!
I was just thinking that New Year's Eve is tomorrow and that is usually when I make all kinds of goals and promises to myself that never come to fruition. So instead I've decided to focus on the lifestyle changes that I've already started - exercise, eating less sugar/bad carbs, and eating more veggies and less refined foods. I have made progress in all of these areas this past year so instead of setting any specific goals, my plan is to just continue what I've started. Sounds like a lot less stress to me!
However you are approaching the New Year, I wish you all the best and much success in 2012 and beyond!
