Weight: 312
Total Weight loss: 38 pounds

OK, so... I'm not totally upset. On Thanksgiving morning, I weighed 308.4, so a total holiday weekend gain of less than 4 pounds is... doable, at least for me.

I mean, of course I am not thrilled, but considering all the indulging I did post-Thanksgiving, I'm surprised it's not worse. And I know what I need to do to fix it, so I am not too worried.

I haven't been to the gym in a week. I shall remedy that tomorrow, as I don't want it to be a waste of money on top of everything else. I would like to get in at least 4 days this week. My goal for the week will be to get comfortably under 310, as you have suggested. I can't believe now that in just over a month I will have my year anniversary for my weight loss efforts! It would be really nice to make that anniversary number a nice, round 50 pounds, wouldn't it? Then I can start working on the next 50, once and for all. 50 pounds a year is not so shabby, not at all.

Thanksgiving was really nice. The meal was wonderful (if I say so myself, since I cooked it!), the company equally so. It took me almost as long to recover from the holiday as it did to get ready for it -- boy, was I ever exhausted after the meal and the days after! I am kind of glad to be back in the old work routine for now.

Hope all is well with you. I am thankful for each and every one of you who reads and/or comments.

Totally getcha. I hadn't been on-program for a week and a half. I did my best trying to make wise choices, but I did indulge myself quite a bit. I expected to be 5 lbs up, as I had avoided weighing in, during this time. I didn't... and all I can think as far as why is that I did the best I could, in my choices, and thankfully, my metabolism has crawled up to being something towards normal. But I don't have the data for this time to be sure as to how I dodged that particular bullet.

I'm back on with the weight lifting today, and some circuit training tonight. Later this week, I'm going to return to shakin' my thing with some bellydancing, too. LOL :)

Hang in there, hon. You'll be back under 310 in no time! See you 'round!
