As much as I've tried to be good, I realized yesterday that I have not been good about the freggies for the past few days so I am making that a priority the rest of the week.
On a positive note - today I was able to get into my wetsuits that I bought 25 years ago (when I was at my lowest weight!). I still have more inches and lbs to lose, but this is my NSV for the day!

Yikes! 5.5 pounds over goal! emoticon

And with 2 broken ribs (stupid tripping accident) I'm not doing my Curves workout. I thought today would be my first day back, but still too sore. Guess limiting food is the only avenue I have to get back in control. Lord, give me strength amidst the leftovers!

Ate too much but, feeling pretty good. For the actual meal, I took a salad plate. I just ate too much of the other goodies. Tomorrow I'm back on track!

Ate more ham than needed - but very sensible snd balanced for the day. No picking at leftovers or giving into temptations that aren't really worth it to me.

I am just barely into maintaining--but I am afraid I will have to lose again after the holidays are done. But--I will manage to lose it again and then I will maintain my loss! To all those who can do this without tracking--maybe I will eventually!

I enjoyed the holiday meals with family AND two terrific runs on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Balance--my key to maintenance. Merry Christmas everyone! (And back to regular eating for me as of RIGHT NOW.)

Just a quick note to check in as we have just returned home from traveling for 3 days. Lots of fun, family and food. I'm looking forward to getting back to fitness and nutrition routines, but am already missing daughter and granddaughter. Back to work tomorrow--hope it will be quiet so I can get a lot done.

Merry Christmas all my team mates!!

Susie, that's a sweet story! I was up late at church and slept until my mother phoned this morning. Payback for those Christmas mornings when I got up at dawn, I suppose! We opened gifts and then went to a brother's place for brunch. I had my first raw oyster, under the direction of my foodie nephew! Home for a rest (and reading of gift books!) before going back for dinner. No tracking today!

Hope everyone has been having a very Merry Christmas.

When I was a child my name was Susan Mary Christianson. One year at Christmastime someone asked me my name and I said Susan Mary Christmas tree! That was excited! Have a good one all!

We flew from rainy/foggy Auckland to sunny Wellington, so I didn't get it as much walking as usual - but ate in range (lots of salad, our hotel has the best Thai beef salad, yum!) and drank tons of water.

Happy Holidays to all!

If we're lucky we might get out for a Christmas SUP adventure. It is COLD here, but the goal is NOT to fall off the board! 'Looking forward to moving in some way. What a difference a year makes!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!

My day started off with two excited little boys trying to stay quiet as to not wake up their parents, their grandparents or their aunt...but they failed. ::laughing:: So once their dad (my brother) took over hanging out with them, I did some aerobic dancing that had some stuff from all my group exercise classes (thank goodness for iPods, earphones and cool playlists!) for half an hour, then headed down. No fitbit or hydration belt for me, but I got some great gifts, including some cooking gadgets that I will definitely enjoy playing with.

Originally, my travel plans were going to take me into the nasty snowstorm that we're expecting on the East Coast on Thursday, but fortunately, my dad changed my flight, so I'm now going through Atlanta vs. JFK with a 3.5 hour layover, so I should get a decent walk in at least while I'm waiting to head home to Memphis. Since I'll be getting home in the afternoon vs. the evening, I should also be able to go to my usual step class! YAY! The only drawback is that I need to say my goodbyes to everyone tomorrow night instead of Thursday morning. I will miss them, because it's been a GREAT visit!

Well, back to the fam. Hope all of yas are having a VERY Merry Christmas! ::hugs:: to all!

Happy Christmas everyone. Last night my family gathered from all over the country. We had a great time. A daughter in law took me aside and asked how I got through the holidays after losing weight. The thought that came to mind was "it's just what I do now. I stay on track." What I actually said was, I was doing fine controlling portions and staying active. I sort of shocked myself realizing I have Spark confidence! LOL Not that there won't be days....

Wherever you are and however you celebrate--or don't--wishing you well on this day!
