So what!!!!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Yep. A 5.4 lb gain.

Thatís a good reality slap right there!

You know what, thoughÖ? So what. Iíve had a great year. I stopped exercising for a week or so, I ate anything and everything that I wanted Ė and hello - thatís what happens! No shocker about that! But I am not going to beat myself up about this.

I do know that I am certainly NOT going to continue on that path. And this is a good wake up call as to what will happen if I donít reign things in right now. I donít want to go back to where I was 60lbs ago. Iím a little bummed that Iím back in that next set of 10s, but only by .6. Iíll bet by next week, with getting back on track and drinking a ton of water Ė Iíll be back there in no time.

I went out shopping today to use a couple gift certificates. Everything was picked over and I just didnít have the patience to go through everything (I really just wish they had Garanimals for grown-ups). I was thrilled to discover that I was able to fit into a pair of size 8 pants!!! Ok, granted, it was likely the brand/cut/style Ė whatever Ė but I donít care. I got them on! So yay me! I didnít buy them because the style was weird (ankle pants? Looked like floods, to me) but the fact that I got them on, zipped, and wasnít oozing out of them, was something to celebrate.

So fine. Iím up 5.4 this week. Who cares. Iíll own it. The holidays come but once a year Ė so it isnít sticking around.

Betcha Iíll proudly post a loss next week!

    Thank you for being so wonderfully honest. I have gained weight too the past month and I need to get back to working out at least 4 days a week. My weight is up 6 lbs - and I have been bummed about it. You are right - we need to just face it and get back to the correct path. THANK YOU! Happy 2013

    Yep, bitten by the holiday weight gain bug, I know the feeling. Like you said though, "so what?". These times are few throughout the year and why shouldn't we be allowed to indulge a little like the rest of the population? Enjoy it now, because you know that you're going to tightening up and buckling down real soon to get back on track!!

Happy New Years!
