Good weigh-in heading towards x-mas

This week’s weight: 306.4
Difference from last week: -5.8
This year’s change: -25.4

This is going to have to be a fast update. I am already falling asleep at my keyboard. But I also haven’t updated my poor, neglected weight journal. This is all the fault of my New Testament in Review blog series. It has taken up a lot of my writing time. I just wrapped up reading Revelations, though, so now I have a lot of free time.

Anyway, things are going very well here headed into Christmas. The new ProPoints plan is turning out to be really easy for me to follow – especially since I get so many ProPoints in a day. I’ve been trying to make myself more active, which has also been paying off.

I am stil so tempted by egg nog though…  🙂

Happy holidays! And a musical treat for you:

Post-Thanksgiving weigh-in: could be worse!

This week’s weight: 312.2
Difference from last week: +0.6
This year’s change: -19.6

Pumpkin pie - yummy!

Pumpkin pie - yummy!

Thanksgiving weekend is always rough. There are always so many yummy foods to eat. Turkey, stuffing, yams (and my mom makes super-yummy yams, swimming in brown sugar syrup). And the desserts! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, apple pies, blueberry cheesecake, home-made peach cobbler…

YUMMY!

Needless to say, I did over-indulge. I ate too much, especially too much of the yams, and too much dessert. And my weight gain shows this.

However, I also did a good job savings Points during the week. I behaved, making sure I didn’t go above my daily Points so I’d have the full set of weekly Points and activity Points left over. Those helped, helped a lot. Instead of being up 2 or 3lbs, I was up less than a pound.

I can live with that!
