In looking at my weight tracker, I was up a total of 5.8 pounds on the WI following Christmas from my pre-Thanksgiving WI. It was over the course of several weeks in which I went up and down, with more up than down, and that’s the most I’ve been over my “low” weight this time around on WW. That said, I was still somewhat happy that it wasn’t worse after several weeks of shabby-ass tracking and overindulgence. I’ve lost back 2.6 of that over the past 2 weeks and can hopefully dispose of the rest of it over the course of January. I remember saying before Thanksgiving that I’d be happy to finish the year out at the same weight or a hair lighter than I was then, and feeling like that goal was rather unambitious. In reality, that goal in itself was a lot to handle!
Anyway, despite my crankiness leading in to January, things have been good so far. There is something enjoyable about going grocery shopping, cooking regularly, and having a routine again that doesn’t involve candy and vodka for dinner. I don’t know when I’ll resume steady weight loss again, but if I can just get back to pre-Thanksgiving weight and lose a few more pounds here and there after that, I would certainly not complain. January is when things got moving on the scale last year so hopefully that can hold true, even to a lesser extent, in 2012!
