It's Christmas Eve! (and weigh day)

First let me thank Auntie Mandy for joining us here in My Day! Thank you and Happy Holidays!

And... Merry Christmas Eve Everybody!!!!

Today was also time for my weekly weigh in.
And the scale said...
That is .2 pound loss this week,
and make my Total Lost: 35.4 pounds.

Still almost 7 pounds away from being in the green... but it's a loss. And sadly enough, a loss 2 weeks in a row is scarce for me these days. Soooo, I've decided to just be happy with it. I may not end the year in the green, and I have accepted that. I have made a LOT of mistakes, but it will do me no good to beat myself up about it. All I can do is my best, and that will have to do. A loss the week before Christmas? I'm happy with it, even it it's only .2 pound :) I will do my best to make it a loss again next week and be happy with what ever number it is! And while it may not end in the "green" I will still end the year with a Total loss! Over 35 pounds less than this time last year! It may be slower than I expected... but 35 pounds is 35 pounds :)

I did get candy yesterday... and it didn't go well! I had way to much of it. Today I did a lot better. I had a few kisses and Hershey miniatures, but nothing like years past. Or yesterday. I am dividing the candy between Ray and my son's stockings, AND making little bags for My Mom, Stepdad, and 3 brothers. So there won't be much left for me. Oh, I'm sure I'll have some, but not 10 pieces at a time!

Me and my son are going to decorate cookies now, the last ones are due out of the oven in 7 minutes 50 seconds :) I'll take some pictures and show you tomorrow! Like on Thanksgiving, most of them will be left at my Mom's.

I am definitely in the Christmas mood :) I'm not letting anything bother me, and am exited for Christmas :)

Have a Merry Christmas Eve! Tomorrow have a wonderful day, and be safe!

*I did NOT take that picture. It is from WEBSHOTS


  1. It's all good - it's all progress....
    I am just so glad you are blogging.
    And even on Christmas Eve!
    You go, girl!
    Congrats! You are getting there!

  2. My daughter got a xmas card today with that same kitty photo on it. So cute!

    Keep going in the right direction. You're right - no sense beating yourself up about the past, just learn from your mistakes and do a little better each day.

    Have a great Christmas!

  3. Awwwww, that kitty is adorable :D I think you should have a whole post dedicated to cute ones!

    Yeah, totally know what you mean about the miniatures just got to stay vigilant and say no! instead of finding my hand reaching for them mindlessly all the while. I'm not a cow and I don't have to graze like one either.

    Happy Christmas to you and yours :)


  4. Hi Tina, Merry Xmas! lots of love, Michaela xxxooo

  5. That's exactly how it used to be! Like a grazing cow! But NO MORE! :)

    Thank you all, Merry Christmas!!!!
