A Little More of Me to Love
Weekly weigh-in: 202.7
Total loss: 88.8 lbs.
Emotion: Nogged up
Wayne sucked this week. I gained half a pound!
A friend gave us a bottle of real whole cream eggnog blended with rum, brandy and whiskey. Had a couple of shots of it on Christmas Eve, then treated myself to a liberal dose in my Christmas morning coffee… and then again in a second cup (I’ve given up everyday java, so this was really a special treat).
That wasn’t my only run-in with the holidays last week, but it was probably the most decadent.
So my assault on Onederland will have to wait at least one more week.
I did have one telling moment this week that really drove this accomplishment home for me. I was trying to help me 10-year-old daughter Pisa find something in the bathroom when–on a lark–I scooped her up and stepped on the scale while still carrying her.
Our combined weight?
That’s a half-pound more than I weighed eight-and-a-half months ago.
I’ve lost a 5th grader.
Couple more holiday events (including a big New Year’s Eve party), and then it’s time to buckle down and finish what I started.
Here’s to a safe, happy and healthy new year to us all!
