Perty by Thirty Weeks 50 and 51

Ok, I deliberately skipped posting last week for week 50. Mostly because I was ashamed. I had been tempted by the Christmas yummies and I ate, ate, and ate some more! I even skipped going to Weight Watchers for the FIRST TIME because I knew I had gained weight.

This week I sucked it up and went to face the music. I knew it would be bad because skipping last week did nothing to help my motivation. Nothing at all.

Luckily, my gain was not as bad as I anticipated. I mean, I didn't eat an entire cheeseball like I did at Thanksgiving, but I did eat numerous (like closing in on the hundreds) sugary snacks. Even though I begged all my family not to give me ANY Christmas candy and they all followed those strict orders perfectly, I do still have a kid. And he had no idea that he even got those 15 Butterfinger chocolate bells and he will never know because I ate them all. Every last one of them. I even dug back in the candy bowl looking for more. There were none and the Crunch version has NOTHING on the Butterfinger ones!

All that eating, and skipping a weigh-in, cost me 3.4 pounds.

I do have to admit I am a bit ashamed that it dropped me back under the 100 pound mark. The mark I was so thrilled to meet two weeks ago. The mark that led me to be featured in this article that was published in today's local newspaper.

Yikes! Hopefully I can lose that 3.4 pounds this week (as long as my New Year's Eve celebrations don't sabotage me!) and return to the victorious 100 pound club.

I'll be sure to update next week, good or bad, since it will be the 1 year mark. This is all a journey one pound (up or down) at a time.

Even though you gained (and I did too-it's Christmas goodies I tell ya) you are learning your body and how what you eat will impact your weight. You are very in tune with that correlation and that's all part of what you are learning so you can make this a life change and not just a one time situation. You're still doing great and I look forward to your next update putting you back in (or really close to) the 100 club again!

You are amazing Jessica!
