MM Post 3: Holidays.. The good and the bad

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Well.. Thanksgiving and Christmas are over and I've survived, mostly. This has been a hard week and though it's Thursday it's not even half over. Tomorrow is moving day.. er.. "Pack like crazy because I'm off half the day" day.. Saturday is moving day. Tomorrow is also the day that I get my 3-year-old daughter back from her father after her having been gone since last Friday. He did let me take her a few hours on Friday so I could take her with her brother to see Santa. It still put a bit of a damper on Christmas for me. My darling son had a blast though. I'm sure my daughter had the same.

I did well over the holiday on my maintenance. I didn't weigh at all between the 10th an this morning which was a very nice reprieve, honestly, but it did make for a scary few seconds this morning as the numbers blinked to their final positions.. *phew* 157.0.. Exactly what it was about 2 months ago when I last blogged and perfectly within my happy range.. which is about 155-165. (this is the range where my 8 bottoms fit perfectly) Of course I'd like to get closer to 150, ultimately.. with training.. on my bottom half.. because I think that it would put me into a 6 bottom. I wear 4/6/S dresses most of the time.. Just kinda want everything to fit consistently. I am not pushing too hard toward it though. I have so many stressors in my life right now that I am amazed that I've not been stress grazing myself back up the scale. :-/ That's always been my MO.. but I'm holding steady and that's all I can ask.

I just want to thank you all really quickly for 6 years of amazing support since I hit that milestone in November and I have a few of you around that have been here with me the whole time. Thank you. You mean the world to me.
