Hiya girls!  

Everybody doing well I hope.

I ate a bit too much at dinner last night and had been feeling just a wee bit heavier in my belly.  I'll still be happy if I just have 2 pounds to lose when I go home next week. 

Getting on the treadmill this morning as soon as my porridge is digested.  

Progress as of today: 34 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Good job getting on the treadmill! I hope you had a wonderful christmas!

Looks like you are doing well! I indulged on Christmas as well..we had to wait longer than expected so once the food was there, I was like a wolf LOL Happy New Year!!

Umpqua on 12/28/2011:
I'm sure you can't wait to get back to your regular eating and exercise schedule but it must be nice to spend so much time with your family right now. Enjoy!

Hi ladies!  Hope everyone is healthy and happy!!  

Not doing bad with food but I did have 2 glasses of wine and a beer yesterday.

Got on brother's treadmill for an hour today and feel so much better after two weeks of no exercise.  

My new size 8 trousers all fit the same so I guess I'm fine.

I'm glad things are going well, good for you for getting on the treadmill!

Whew!  Christmas day done.  22 people in a house is exhausting though fun.  Good food.  

I ate smallish portions of the very fattening stuff like the buttery mashed potatoes and stuffing.  However, my niece had brought brownies with Giaridelli chocolate chips in it, my sister had made oatmeal/peanut butter/chocolate chips bars, there was vanilla ice cream, and homemade cheesecake.  I skipped the cheesecake.  

No workouts yet - been sick or busy or no good place to do it.  At brother's for the rest of the visit, so will try to do my tae bo and jump rope in his basement.  His lowest weight dumbbells are 15 pounds which is too heavy for me except for one routine.  

Still size 8!

Hope you all had a really wonderful holiday!!!

Yes, it's good to have the big eating day behind us. Now - I have to watchout for eating because it's almost New Years Eve, etc......

thinkpositive on 12/27/2011:
Sounds like you are handling things well ( better than me!) Hope you'll be 100 % healthy soon. Nice to see & spend time with family.

Hi ladies!  Feeling a lot better but have some sniffles and dodgy throat but I'll survive.  130 pounds this morning.  All the gifts are wrapped, having good grandbaby time. 22 for dinner on xmas.  

Back to normal eating.  Porridge for breakfast, not so normal lunch - we were at a museum and went to the Oscar Meyer cafe inside.  So hot dog, chips and pepsi.  Dinner was roast chicken, baked potato, salad, applesauce, grapes.  2 beers. 

Busy day tomorrow so if I'm not back on I hope you all

Have a very happy  holiday!!  

Huge menu Sunday including the desserts - brownies, cookies, a cookie pie, ice cream, cheesecake.  Uh huh.  I have willpower.  Right? Right!?????

Still drained but at least I'm not getting sick.  I ate fairly well yesterday except the dinner was just too heavy on my stomach and I couldn't finish it.

Supposed to have my 16 month old granddaughter all day tomorrow and my son's family for pizza tomorrow night while my sister is elsewhere.  

I know it's fluid but the scale said 128 the last two mornings and I think it weighs about 2 pounds above mine at home.  

Hope everyone is doing well.  I'm not making a lot of comments.

Thanks for your well wishes ladies!  Managed breakfast this morning. Still have some 'issues' but much better than yesterday.  

It's a stomach bug as at least two other people who were here Saturday have the same thing.

Quick note.  Sick today.  Either food poisoning from reheated rice yesterday or stomach bug.  

I ate my usual porridge and it wasn't long after than I got sick.  Had a piece of dry toast later, but both of those are umm.....gone.  

I've managed sweetened tea but need to get something salty down my stomach that will stay as my electrolytes are wacko.  The only bananas we have are green and just can't stomach one of those.

Oh no :( Sorry that you are not feeling well. Please take care

Oh that's too bad. Maybe just a 24 hour bug. Hope you feel better.

Greetings ladies!  Big pig-out today!!  

Company at my sister's house today - Mexican themed.  22 people in total.  It's a very bad idea to stand next to the appetizer table (nachos, fritos, crackers, guacomole, cheesy thing, veggie & bean dip) for a long time while chatting with different people.  The hand goes automatically to the table many, many, many times!  And I hadn't had any lunch as the meal was at about 3pm so I was really hungry.  

This was followed by quesidillas, rice, fruit, several Corona Extras, a margarita, and later quite a few homemade cookies.  Oink.  

I did overdo it and didn't need to be a pig as a lot of the eating was because it tasted good, not because I was hungry.  Most of what I ate was foods I very rarely eat.

Other than shopping no exercise yet.  People noticed my weight loss and said I looked really good.  

If it's not snowy or slippery tomorrow I'm doing a power walk.  I feel a strong need to get some exercise.  

Tomorrow I'm being very good!  I've been eating porridge every morning as usual.  

Hope you all are doing well!

Note to self:  remember the joy of trying on and buying those little size 8 trousers and the joy of continuing to wear them!!!! This long-term pleasure is much better than the short-term pleasure of consuming junk food!

Stick with your holiday goals and you will be just fine Annie :) have fun!!

hollybelle on 12/18/2011:
Oh size 8's - you better remember them Annie! You EARNED them, dear! Moderation will do it - take it slow! Deep breath!

thinkpositive on 12/18/2011:
Glad to see that you are having a good time. Is is easy to let the rules that worked so well back home go out the window while we're here in holiday mode. Have a nice walk and have fun with your family.

Umpqua on 12/18/2011:
Mexican food is so yummy, it's tough to limit it and I'm never able to. I know you're getting right back on track though!

liza36 on 12/19/2011:
Nice to have people recognize the weight loss. I have a tough time around mexican food, I love it too much. I love your note to yourself. Well said!

Hi ladies!  Been very busy shopping, seeing family, went to a concert tonight.  Been doing pretty good on the food and since I've discovered Lite beer is only 96 calories I'm allowing 2 a day.  Picked up Chinese for dinner tonight though and I know that was not low cal or low fat! Tomorrow is Mexican food but I'll try to watch it.  Don't want my new trousers to get tight!  

My son and his family came over last night and I was very good for dinner, even skipped the ice cream!  Saw my precious granddaughters!  

Thanks for your comments!  I'll try to catch up when I get a chance. Hope you all have a fantastic holiday.

Sounds like you're doing well and having lots of fun! IMO Sam Adams Light delivers the most flavor of the light beers, although I think it's a little higher in calories than the Bud and Coors, etc. Have a good one!

Hiya lovely ladies!

Very mild weather here in Michigan - upper 50's!  Nice to see family! Went shopping with my sister today and got a pair of jeans and black dress trousers.  Size 8!!  My sister also had two pair of corduroys that are too short for her - size 8 - and she gave them to me.  Really motivates me to behave myself!  

Eating quite healthy since we arrived.  Different story on the plane though.  I get so bored!  8 1/2 hour flight.  At dinnertime I kept eating after I was satisfied and end up stuffed and feeling horrible.  

At our hotel in Amsterdam the breakfast bufffet was included.  I passed by something i love - croissants and pain au chocolat.  I had a roll, muesli, a thin slice of ham and yogurt.

Workouts at my sister's won't work as there is nowhere cool to do cardio and I overheat quickly.  We plan to powerwalk though.

Thanks for all your comments!!

Won't get a lot of time to comment on your blogs but will try to catch up later when things slow down a bit.

I'm glad you are safe and sound and enjoying nice weather with your family! Well done passing up those breakfast pastries, I remember the offerings when I visited Europe and they are hard to resist!

Glad to see that you arrived safely. I know what you are talking about with eating & travel. Just boredom for me I think.And just sitting around. Hope you have a great visit with your family.
