Weigh In 12.19.11

160.  OK...So no real movement in weeks.  How I've been eating and NOT moving...I'm actually grateful not to see a gain.  My eating has seriously been TERRIBLE (in quality...not quantity)...DQ's candy cane chill has been making far too frequent appearances.  Exercise or any real activity has been nonexistent.  I could blame it on the silly season but I think I'm using that as an excuse to not care.  Soooo... what to do about this...eh...why not set a goal?  My sister and niece are coming out for a visit on January 25th.  My goal is to be 155 by their visit.  That's 5 lbs in just as many weeks.  SHOULD be very do-able.  This will also put me at 75 lbs down which is a nice milestone-y type number.  Here it is...in writing.  I'm so sick of putting these goals out there and then having to report that I'm not hitting it.

Thank you all for the concern for my friend.  She did not go to the ER or see a doc about what happened and I'm pretty upset about that.  I think something is wacky with her blood sugar but what do I know right?  I just hope it doesn't happen again.

Weekend was good but fairly uneventful.  We went to an engagement party on Friday night.  I had 2 martinis and was drunk.  It was just crazy.  Since losing all this weight (and I guess since I'm not able to eat much WHILE I drink), I've become a serious lightweight.  Who would've thought?  But it was fun and not so drunk as to have a hangover the next day so I guess all was well.

Does anyone else think that everyone should just get the last 2 weeks of the year off if you don't provide some sort of necessary service.  Like...OK...people need groceries and medicines and even car repair.  But seriously...no one is going to be that put out if I'm not here the next two weeks.  Half my office is gone this week...the other half is gone next week yet here I am...plugging away...blogging working diligently...ahem.  Oh well.  Tis life.

So I was done with my Christmas shopping.  D-U-N.  DONE...when my kids decided to finally make their lists to Santa.  So now I've got one exchange to make and a few new things to go get.  Doh!  Gotta make those lists earlier in the season!  Lesson learned.

And you Monday DEMotivator:

How sick is this-- I AM off for the next few weeks, but I'm going in to work today anyway because I'm bored :)

You can do the 5 lbs, absolutely. But it does get really hard right where we're at (I'm 157 on a good day, naked). I think it takes so much more motivation and internal drive than it did before, and I'm just not there anymore. I'm trying to figure out how to get it back. If you find it, let me know.

You can do it! Do you want to know how I avoid ANY fast food type places, DQ included? I picture the workers being unsanitary and that takes whatever desire I have right out of the picture. I cannot tell you how many times this has saved me. Dunkin Donuts coffee is a weekness of mine, regular stuff not flavored, but I found myself ordering a Bavarian Cream donut EVERY TIME I went for a while. Well, I put a stop to that! I'm ok with them serving my coffee, I just picture the poor donut makers as being unsanitary. It works, believe me!

Oh lady, I hear you!! This time of year, as I said in my last post, if I could white knuckle it till Christmas Eve before I started eating everything in sight, it was a miracle! I think your goal sounds very doable, just keep saying NO to the crap...once you've said it a few times, it gets easier because you're out of the habit...and thanks for your comments on my last few posts - you rock! xoxo

Your goal is totally doable :o) and I hear you on the work front, I have to find my own stuff to do this time of year at work, which is funny, cause the rest of my office is quite busy :o) but I cold have the sole time off and not be missed!!!!

My kids used to pull that too- those last minute letters to santa that made me run out and buy more...... now they tell me it was all planned to get more gifts. Rugrats!!
I hope your BFF is okay. I am sure that was very frightening.

I am such a lightweight, too! I actually love it.

I know you can hit that goal of 155. :)

Sorry such a late comment, I'm super behind. Ughh.

I agree! Nobody gets anything done in those last 2 weeks anyway!

You can lose the 5 pounds!
