I am back from my trip to Germany. We flew in yesterday. I loved it, but I'm also very happy to be home!
How did everyone make out over the holidays? I had a wonderful time with family, and definitely indulged, which I think is normal. The challenge now, is how easily can I switch back to eating on plan, and get the scale moving downward again! I am dealing with some carb cravings, and hoping I can white knuckle it for the next few days.
I gained a bit of weight, but to be honest, I had mentally prepared for it to be a lot worse. Between the higher carbs, not drinking enough water, bathroom issues, flying etc, I'll take it!
last weigh in was dec 15: 161.4
Goals: get under 160.
My monthly weigh in is the 8th of each month. As of now, I'm on track to have lost zero pounds for the month, so I'm going to try and not let that happen. I mean, it's not the end of the world, but it's not what I want to see in my stats if I can avoid it!
Welcome back! I also had some gain over vacation - probably due to eating my 10 year old nephew's body weight in cookies.
Next goal: normal BMI!
I'm finally back to a "normal" schedule of showering in the morning, which also means weighing daily again! This is super exciting for me. And I'm able to start building up my exercising again. YAY!

Hello! It's good to have you back Erin.
As we talked about today, I think I mentally gave myself permission to be in maintenance for the month of December - well a good part of it anyway. I started December at 169.8 and today I'm at 166.7. Lowest weight this month was 164.1.
Next goal- also to be out of the 160s
Happy to say that I have my head back in the game and looking forward to seeing the lbs come off again. I've decided on 135 as my goal weight.
Have a great week everyone!
Happily married, mom of 3 teens. On a journey to healthy!

Yes! Onward and downward. That's exciting that you've picked a goal weight. I've set mine at 145 for now, which is the top end of a healthy BMI. I'd like to get a bit below that, but to be honest, just getting under 160 is all I can take on right now hahahah
