Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I gained three pounds, but so far I've managed to lose 2 of them. By Monday I should be back to pre holiday weight. Then time to move lower.


On my way today.

I actually lost a couple of pounds. Im sure it was water weight as I have a serious case of edema and cannot seem to eliminate the soft tissue water retention.

I gained 2 pounds, but I consider that a victory. In the old days, I would gain 7 to 10 easy. I'm right back on track, though. Those extra 2 will be gone in a week or two. :)

I did pretty well, considering.
There was some family drama going on, so my digestion was unsettled going into it.
It's a tradition in my husband's family to have homemade lasagna on Christmas Eve, which I have to "deconstruct" because we're not supposed to be eating wheat-y things, like pasta. But the innards are the best part, so I loved that! I opted out on the garlic bread, which I love too.
There was a big salad, which I tentatively indulged in, since I've been craving salad. This isn't a thing I'm not supposed to eat - it's just tough on my GI tract in general, and I have to be careful. Between the roughage and the tomato stuff in the lasagna, I had a fitful night.

Christmas Day food included a beautiful standing rib, a spiral-cut spiced ham, lots of dippin' veggies and FRUIT! oh yum! And other carby stuff: mac-n-cheese, a potato casserole, then veggies - seasoned green/snap beans, spinach, asparagus, corn casserole... some of that I can't have, or simply don't care for, but I got more than plenty of what I could and wanted to eat. I went a bit crazy on the fruit. I was so involved with the fruit I forgot all about any dessert. I can't remember if there was any or not!

Even so, at the end of it all, I actually LOST a couple pounds. Amazing. I certainly wasn't expecting that. And since then, I've continued to trickle in that downwards fashion, albeit slowly. I've been kind of "stuck" recently, so that's a welcome change! Now if I can just keep on that track with all the leftovers we brought home!

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...

I enjoyed the holiday food and didn't deny myself, but didn't overindulge. I also got an exercise bike for Christmas so I've been on that almost every day. I weighed in today and lost half a pound in the past 2 weeks. Not bad for the holidays.

I weighed the same on January 2 as I did on December 19. I also weighed myself on December 26 and my weight had gone up a couple pounds, but I think it was mostly water weight from a lot of salty food on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

In the weeks before Christmas I lost a couple pounds. My goal for December was to maintain, but I actually came out ahead, so that was exciting. :)
