Wednesday Weigh-In/Christmas Food Mourning

Hey!  I'm back!  Blogger will no longer let me post pics without paying a fee so I've avoided posting.  Who wants to read a post without pics?!  I'm going to try to find a way around it but in the mean time, this is me without photos.

So here are the weigh-ins for the last 5 weeks...

November 28th - loss of 1.5 pounds
December 5th - loss of .4 pounds
December 12th - loss of 4.2 pounds
December 19th - loss of 1.3 pounds
December 26th - loss of .8 pounds

For a total loss now of 61.7 pounds. 

Thanksgiving was harder than I thought it was going to be.  I kept my eating and exercising goals but it was hard to watch people eating ALL DAY. 

Of course, during the month of December there was a ton of yummy food at parties and literally dropped off at my door!  I stayed strong and avoided it all.  (My kids were grateful to have treats in the house!)

Christmas Eve/Christmas Day have been the hardest of all.  Who knew so many of my Christmas traditions revolved around food?  I missed the traditional coffee cake Christmas breakfast and the Lindt truffles in my stocking.  But most of all I missed the grazing on all the Christmas food throughout the day.  My stomach kept telling me it was hungry and my head kept reminding my stomach that there is more to life than food! 

I've been enjoying my daily walks/bike rides and even look forward to them.  I love getting out and feeling active.  I even exercised on Christmas Day.  What????!!!  Word.
