I get those tortillas from costco that are 8 carbs I usually have them on the weekends, I might have some carbs in my iced coffee I get skim milk and sugar free syrup, and then mainly some extra if I eat dreamfields, or something, or fruit in my smoothie, it all adds up but no bread or potatos or rice this week at all!

We have Autumns B-day and Tony's B-day this week! Autumn's request was chicken wings with old bay so that is what we are having, good and low carb! LOL Taking Tony to Mortons on Monday night.

Work is sort of nuts I will be glad for the break!

I am doing the Shred, holy crap I am sore! But it is so easy to commit to doing that in the morning so I will keep going and see what happens!

I need to pull out my Jillian DVD's -- don't have Shred, but I have the Frontside/Backside for Beginners workouts (still hard in my opinion! lol).

Happy Friday, pretty lady. Food choices sound great!

Oh girls, we had the party for Tony and Autumn it was nice, his Mom had not seen the house since the day the movers came, LOL She liked the house. So we got bad news, my son's Dad was admitted and had an aorta valve replacement, apparently the condition is hereditary so now Robert has to go and be checked ASAP, scary, my ex and I are still close and it really hit me hard, the thought of Bobby not having his Dad made me so sad, but I am hoping that he will recover quickly. Bobby has so much of his Dad's attributes and gestures, it is sort of scaring me!

Sending hugs, healing vibes, love and prayers your way. Your ex will be fine -- it is for the best that he had this surgery. Tony had an aortic replacement and now he is as good as new -- it is amazing what modern medicine can do these days! So stay positive and keep the faith. Your son is a strong, healthy young man and if he does have this condition, the doctors will catch it early enough to give him preventative care.

I know you feel scared and sad right now but please know that God is watching over you and your ex is getting great medical care and so will Bobby if he needs it.

Know that we love you too!

I'm sorry to hear the bad news, Amber! Prayers and good wishes for Robert's dad and the testing. Big hugs to you and Robert both!

I'm glad Autumn and Tony had a great birthday and that your mom got to see your place!

I have been really lax here, I am not sticking to Shred, that lasted about 5 days I have got to get myself together for a new years plan to get back on track! Mortons was fun, he enjoyed it, NYC was snowy this weekend, but we saw everything we wanted to do and ate too much!

More snow here today I am so over Winter, all these storms the only time I like snow is on Christmas Eve and then we probably wont have any!

Sister is losing like crazy from her weight loss surgery, she should be a bear on Christmas not eating, she is hoping she can have an egg by then, she has lost 18 pounds in 5 days! I need my face stapled!

Everything is tight I feel gross, I need to get it together, going to take some time to go back through my journals and see what I was eating and try to get my head right that is the battle, whatever is in my head is holding me back!

Amber, you'll get it together. Holidays are so hard. I had to laugh at getting your face stapled! No snow here in SoCAl Just as well, we wouldn't know how to drive in it. New York sounded like lots of fun!

I agree with Blonde. In fact, I think you do have it together. You've been going through some pretty rough stuff lately with Tony's job scenario, your ex's illness, taking on a lot of extra work at work, etc. It does not sound like you have gained a lot of weight either which is good for the holiday time frame. You need to give yourself a break and know that you will get back on track once things simmer down a bit.

Hey Amber! You'll get back on track! The busyness of holidays is hard. A new year is coming, and that will be a perfect time for new beginnings =)

How's Robert's dad?

I've always wanted to go to NYC for Christmas. I've never been, period. One day, I will fix that! Lots of great sales?

Sounds like your sis is doing amazing with weight loss. I'm learning that, after WLS, the reality of food and eating is not anything the same as it is in theory! I am on eggs now. I haven't craved anything before today and I've been cooking my guys up a storm and Christmas baking and everything; today, someone has what smells like the most amazing breaded veal parmesan sub ever and I actually liked the smell of something finally! I've decided i want a day off to eat meat! LOTS OF MEAT! Lol!

Be good to you and realize that even if you maintain this month that it's a major win. You've had ALOT going on! Get through the holiday and then begin fresh when you can find some time to breath!

Hello Beautiful Lady! Hope you are doing well. I totally agree with Dani's and Blonde's sage advice -- be good to you and know that maintaining is still a victory especially during the food-centric holidays.

Have a wonderful time with family and friends Amber! I've lost so much of my life worrying about my weight and appearance. It's all about family these next two days! I have a lot to be grateful for! Merry Christmas!

Ughg girls I had to break down and do into the land I said I would never go back to Lane Giant, my boobs are so enormous from the weight I gained I had to go and try on bras, ughghg! I am so depressed but there is no point in being depressed I just need to wrap my head around some serious change for the New Year, ughg. And today is more eating as we have Christmas with Tony's Mom in the Poconos, I swear I just can't get a grip!

I am pouring through my journals from 2011 for motivation and inspiration on what to eat and exercise, and going to just focus on the New Year and getting myself right, we had a few stressors this year that is behind me I have to look ahead and take car of me.

So I will be back!

Be kind to yourself Like you said, you've had some things this year you've had to work through....IMO you've done pretty dang well, all things considered! The dance thru LB is only temporary and let it fuel your motivation of where you do NOT want to stay. You can do this, Amber! We are all here with you!!
