Hey everyone,
I'm back from a 4 day visit with the in laws--I didn't do well AT ALL, and learned some things about myself. I handle stress with food. It would have been difficult but I could have stayed on track, but I "rewarded' myself with food because (I won't go into it all) but was in difficult circumstances. I'm not happy with myself, but also am not going to be too hard on myself. I'm home and back on track today, but am really struggling with the hi carb demons/cravings, etc. I have alot of crap in the house left over from Christmas--stuff people gave us or bought us...but I will not give in. Today I'm eating more quanitity than usual but haven't gone off track. And I will drink a ton of water. I can't believe what a struggle this holiday season has been for me.

I still am done with it all as we are going to one more "visit" to my aunt's for an overnight trip over the weekend (it will involve cross country skiing, which is a good thing!) and also people are coming to my house for New Year's Eve...

hi vicki, i'm not within a lb. of my blitz III goal, just a lb. away from the low i hit a few weeks ago - in effect, i've almost lost the weight i've gained over the past couple of weeks...no parade for me :-)

actually, i can't even remember what my blitz III goal was - maybe 209?...if so, i'm within 2 lbs. of it today, and if i can drop 1 more lb. by the end of blitz III tomorrow, i will have gotten back to the lowest weight i have been in 17 or 18 years...

unless i melt down in the next few hours, i have a real shot at 210 tomorrow - why? - because i have eaten hardly anything today: hb egg for breakfast, a small plate of stir-fry for lunch and so far, a gin and tonic for dinner...long story, and not that interesting...the short version is that i am at work tonight and nowhere near a morsel of food and there won't be anything mouth-watering when i get home, so i may finish the day having consumed under 500 calories...

jenny, i feel your pain - i sucked over the holidays...i really didn't think i would have a problem cheating, and i guess that was a big part of the problem...again, giving myself too much credit for willpower i DO NOT possess...i should have been better prepared - not sure in what way - but what i did, did not work at all...

it's a miracle that i may get back to where i was before the holidays, but i literally wasted over a month with no loss at all...disappointing...

but jenny, you have it a lot harder than me because you do so much socializing and away trips, etc. - i don't know how you do as well as you do under the circumstances...you have been the STAR of blitz III along with ff - btw, which of you won ff's little wager? :-)

marilee, one more day and this year will be OVER!...it's been a pretty good year for me though - i hope next year sees me get to my goal...about 30 lbs. to go!

Have to get caught up on reading some of the posts...busy with work yesterday. One pound loss for the week, but hey at least I'm starting to deflate after packing on about four pounds over the holiday. Be back later today to catch up!

blitz III final weigh-in in a bit...i did survive last night very well - had another bowl of stir-fry pretty late before bed, but i was starving...i don't think i ate more than 500-600 calories yesterday...

planning on eating very little during the day today - more like 2-3 snacks and then i'll eat the majority of my calories at the party we are hosting tonight...not sure of the menu yet, but i will not overdo the carbs...it has taken me a week to flush the last indiscretion out of my system...

today is the last exercise session of the year as well...i am proud of myself for sticking to that regimen no matter what else was going on...i think that saved me more than once...

see y'all in a bit!

Another day on the wagon, wahoo. I am still trying to figure out that darn ticker thingy at the bottom of my siggy. I am down 5 lbs total now and need some help in figuring out how to update the ticker so I don't have to recreate the darn thing every time.

What is everyone's plans for tonight? Any resolutions?

We are going to a potluck tonight. Someone is providing the lasagna. I am bringing my own LC "pasta" dish made with spaghetti squash so I can eat something close to the main-dish.

Good morning!

I know everything is relative, but it's dang cold here in Phoenix!!! Right now it's 28 degrees outside my home and the high today is only going to hit 49. BRRRRR!

Well, today was day one of my HCG plan. I'm excited, nervous and scared!

I am supposed to go to a friends tonight but I'm not sure what will happen. Frankly, I'm not a big NYE celebrator.

TTYL
