158.4 instead of 158.6 - I don't think that counts

Yeah Laura! They are pricey - that's why we only purchased one .

Sitting here having coffee this morning. I'm off duty of the grandkids until December 30th! I haven't had this many free days in a row for about 2 years.
Enjoying the moment for sure!

Weight - STS I should do some neighborhood walking to ramp up the weightloss. The weather here in Maryland is supposed to be unseasonably warm over the weekend! I will certainly take advantage of it and get myself outside .

Need to wrap all the gifts for Christmas. Not obsessing over it at all - I'm ready for 2014 to roll in!

Pamper yourself and enjoy extra coffee and blankie snuggle time....... that's what I would do if I was off today lol !

We are going to be almost 80 this weekend, crazy, but supposed to rain too..... hope it doesn't rain there and you can get outside !

I did just what you suggested Laura. But then started to feel guilty and got out of my chair to wrap gifts. After wrapping three, I ran out of tape and labels-just my luck! Had to get pretty enough to drive to the store to make some purchases. Then I didn't feel like wrapping anymore .

Today I slept untill 8:45 - WOW! I must be tired or something. Drinking my coffee and will get motivated soon.

Weight is stuck and I am not happy about that. I guess my body likes it here.

Have been fasting and eating dinner only. Must confess, I do have snacks after dinner - celery sticks, nuts, pepperoni slices, cucumber sticks. Need to boil eggs to have on hand and maybe drop the nuts. This old girl doesn't need very many calories to stay alive or something.

I almost forgot.......I was able to wear my skinny Gloria Vanderbilt size 10 black jeans yesterday very comfortably ! I could not zip them up last weekend ! I must have done something right this week for that to occur .

DH's new chair will be delivered today and the old Lazy Boy will be dropped off at Habitat for Humanity Store.

Susan, that is GREAT news about the black skinny jeans! Hooray! You must be really pleased. I agree with Laura that you should relax and chill today -- take it easy!

I spent the first day of Winter as if it were the first day of Spring! It was 70 degrees here yesterday. AWESOME! Outside all day - finished my Christmas porch decor and cut back some faded mums and my roses. Raked out leaves from some beds. I did not even go to the grocery store. I did not want to stop what I was doing. It was heavenly! And I was pooped by 5:00 pm.

We got Chinese take out for dinner - I had Shrimp & Broccoli. I'm sure it was not completely the perfect choice, but it was tasty. My weight is stuck, stuck, stuck! Just like Ralphie's friend with his tongue to the lamp post!

I'm not feeling this Christmas thing....can't explain it........ready with everything except for the food prep. Maybe it's the weather. I'm doing a brunch for immediate family and will spend the remainder of the day quietly with DH. I am looking forward to 2014 though . I feel like a "fresh start" is waiting for me around the corner.

Wow -- it is super warm where you are! We got into the 50s yesterday and may reach 60 today. The holiday spirit may hit you by the time Christmas Eve get here. Your choice yesterday of Shrimp and Broccoli was a good one too.

Hope your brunch goes well.

Christmas Eve is here! Just have to do some housework and food prep. Another holiday where the women do most of the work involved "to make it a holiday" for everyone else. That's what's wrong with me...."not feeling it"....

but I do it and I will put it behind me and move on to the New Year hoping to be revitalized! I am looking forward to 2014. 2013 was a see-saw rollercoaster ride as far as my eating habits were concerned. I do feel that we just "eat too much" as a society.

I know that I will not make my goal of 150 for New Year's Eve. It's just not going to happen. I've accepted it. And with that....I wish everyone a "Merry Christmas"!

Christmas was very pleasant and calm. We all over ate and I am looking forward to getting back on plan. Our annual family Xmas gathering is Saturday with gift exchange and lots of good food. About 55 family members - brothers & sisters, nieces and nephews, spouses, etc.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'll be super happy when Michael Bolton stops singing "Happy Honda Days" on TV! Can't he find something else to do!

I am also looking forward to kissing 2013 good-bye. I did nothing but gain 10 pounds since January 2013. I am not pleased with that! Welcoming a fresh start for 2014!

Susan, I am so glad that you had a lovely Christmas and LOL about Michael Bolton -- I agree, I am so sick of those commercials. Your annual family gathering on Saturday sounds really fun. I am also ready for a fresh start in 2014 for sure!

I agree with Laura -- it is almost over and I am sure you did not gain that much weight. You have great discipline. That being said, I totally feel your pain. I cannot wait until tomorrow when it is just me and Tony again sticking to our low carb routine. I already have our simple low carb meal planned for Sunday too -- LOL! The holidays are fun but my body wants the routine back -- so I totally know what you are saying!

Hang in there, Susan. It is almost here!

Ah Girls! It is almost over! I am so looking forward to getting back in the groove of proper, healthy, and positive eating habits! I feel like my body is crying out for me to put good foods back into it! I need to stop the madness of all this "holiday traditional eating". I did gain quite a bit and am embarrassed to admit it, but I did it to myself....and I must claim it..........here goes.................ah, here goes......................................165 !!!!!!!!!!

And my stomach just growled...................

Yesterday was a very focused day of eating on plan. I woke up to a 3 1/2 pound loss! I know it was fluid, but I'm feeling optimistic and will stay focused again today. Going to my sister's for New Year's. I'd rather stay home where I can lay on the couch under a blanket . She has a party every year and I feel obligated to go. And of course I am always the DD and don't get to drink.
Not that I would want to drink too much any way, but would like the option. It's because the DH says he would lose his security clearance if pulled over. Well, this is the last time he can use that excuse.....he'll be retired very soon!
My turn buddy boy!

Had a nice little New Year's Eve and behaved! 2 iced down wines, switched to water after that and a little bubbly at midnight. Good choices of food. Did not have any desserts! Weight at 163 this AM. I am back to the "Daily Weigher" thread so I can see my progress. I posted there during my first year on LCF and it helped me stay focused. I'm hoping for a "lean 2014" !

Off to a good start! 162.8

Expecting a little snow tonight. It would be nice to see the county shut-down on a Friday! We'll see, probably just get rain . Actually, I'm ready for Spring !
