Had a great Christmas and even better morning after because the scale is my friend ! 147.4 !

Did enjoy some sausage/egg/cheese casserole for breakfast, some ham for lunch and small portion of lasagne for dinner. Rough calculation was around 1200 calories - which included 3 servings of Chianti! A few nuts and a niblet of peanut brittle.

Happy Day !!!

I've got my fingers crossed! I'm an old lady looking for a "lift" !!!

Holding the 147.4 - two days of eating around 1200 calories. I need to drop that number back to the 800 calorie range in order to lose.

yesterday's info:

Calories 1200
Fat 70
Net Carbs 36
Fiber 15
Protein 80

Things are getting back to normal today. DD back to work, so the twins will be here. No more sitting in my chair reading ! Saturday will be our annual "Family Xmas Gathering" at one of my brother's home. Lots of food and yummy things, but I'm usually so over the holiday food and treats by the time we get together that I don't over do it. I'm one of ten and when we all get together there are close to 55 people! Brothers, sisters, spouses, neices, nephews and spouses and kids !!! Chinese Auction, games, etc. It's fun !!!

Susan, you look so beautiful in your avatar -- what a lovely lady you are! You sure don't need a facelift in a jar (but if it works, do let me know because I will run out and buy it -- LOL). You did really well over the holidays with your eating -- congratulations!!! I hope you have FUN at your Family Xmas Gathering -- it sounds like a blast. You won't be tempted by any holiday goodies by then!

Thank you, Gail...you are so sweet! I look pretty good with makeup-but without it....UGH !!! Need all the help I can get ! I'm feeling very good about my eating right now and would like to see the scale move soon (downward) !!! I'm a scale junky and not afraid to admit it !!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

Susan, nonsense. I can tell you have lovely facial features from your photos. Plus everyone looks better with makeup -- I wear it every day. LOL! The scale will move downward very soon. Please have patience, my friend!

Oh my! Laura! You are a dear! Thank You and Hubby too! I try to make the best of what God gave me ! And I dearly love to be outside and create "curb appeal" . It warms my heart and soothes my soul to get my hands dirty.

I'm really making an effort trying to be "a good girl" with the food. Trying to get to that 30 pounds lost before 2012 ends - but seem to be stuck right now .

I hope you and your family had a fantastic holiday !

I blew it! It started with a Godiva dark chocolate covered almond.
And didn't stop there!

After a day of 800 calories I blew it last night and gained a pound. One almond led to another almond, to another almond. Then turkey pepperoni dipped in pizza quick sauce, then honey roasted peanuts, then sour cream coconut cake that my daughter made and Hot and Spicy Doritos followed by a glass of regular milk cause I'm out of almond milk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The remaining almonds are now in the trash can.

I am so ashamed and mad at myself because I've been doing so well. I do not want to go to the parties that I have to go to. I'm in a very bad mood and so angry with myself !!!

Thanks Jeanie! I'm up 2 pounds and will be so happy when all this "party" stuff is over and I can start fresh! When I saw the abundance food laid out in front of me at yesterday's party, I just shook my head in great dismay. I chose meats, veggies. But then a surprise ice cream cake came out for my BIL's birthday and a had a small piece. When we came home I ate leftover rum cake! It was good, but now I'm up and feeling guilty..................another party tomorrow night..................

Susan, it will be easier as of January 1, 2013 when all of the holiday stuff is over. You aren't up that much and you can lose that pretty quickly. Stay positive!

Thank you Gail! Yesterday was a better day, but my weight did not change.
I ate well all day and only had an evening snack of turkey pepperoni with some feta that I nuked in the microwave. I know I'm getting back in the game!
I got myself some skinny black pants, several new tops and black heels yesterday. I did a little fashion show for the hubby. I asked him if I "could get away with wearing the skinny pants" for tonight's party and he was like "Oh Yes" ! and "what was I doing with an old guy like him!?!" - So that made me feel good!

My sister asked me to bring a dessert!!! Well.....I'm taking chocolate dipped bacon !!! It's awesome !!!!

Sunday's Info:
1247 calories

Fat 84
Net Carbs 30
Fiber 7
Protein 84

Happy New Year and Happy Successful LCing for 2013 !

I did exceptionally well at the party. Filled my wine goblet with water while everyone else had their alcohol. Had a small amount of bubbly at midnight. Made good choices with the food, but probably ate too many calories. The only sweet treats I had was the dark chocolate dipped bacon. It was quite the conversation piece!

We get together with a group of friends that grew up with my husband, so they go back some 40 years or more. I've known them for 26 years. I haven't seen most of them since the 4th of July. They all commented on my weight loss and thought I "looked Maaawvalous"! Their comments went like this: "see she's got no bread on her plate, just the meat" "no chips or crackers, just a taste of dip or cheese", "lots of veggies" and "that's how you did it" . I looked good and I felt good !

BAD NIGHT...........I was great all day - ended with 1100 calories, then I had a high fiber tortilla with a smear of peanut butter, then chocolate, then brownie, then 3 mini eclairs, then the bottom of a bag of Doritos, then a spoonful of peanut butter, then I went to bed............so I'm not happy today or very proud...sniff, sniff

I will make a better effort today and tonight.....

Right now I'm craving eggs!!!

Talking to myself: You have come a long way since January 2012! Get it together Susan! You know what to do, you know how to do it -
SO DO IT !!!
