Christmas 2012 Weigh-In

Oh goodness. What a rocky few weeks it has been.

One piece of advice – if you are trying to lose weight, never try to juggle a newborn, moving into a new house, completing finals (both the ones you are giving AND the ones you are taking), during the holiday season.

I gained.

I didn’t gain as bad as I had feared.

But I gained.

Are those all excuses? Yep. I certainly could have tried harder and accomplished some weight loss goals.

I did not. I’m not dwelling, because it doesn’t impact my worth as a person.

I expected to be in the 380s. Instead, I just got close to the 380s.

December 22, 2012
Weight: 378.0
Change from Highest: -24.8 pounds

I am not a super happy camper about this, but it is what it is, and I cannot change it now. I can only change it moving forward, and that is what I fully intend to do.

I’m (allegedly) going to take a weekly photo after my weigh-in on Saturdays. I’ll admit – I just now decided to do this, so this photo is actually from Christmas night, but I think it might be nice to have a visual record of my changes.

(I’m also not as grumpy as I look in that photo, I promise. Still, it’ll be interesting to see if my smile changes as I lose weight, too.)

I also had a little food breakthrough today.

We have a new little one in the house for Christmas, so we’re both establishing new traditions and upholding old ones. Not surprisingly, a lot of the traditions (especially the old ones) revolve around food.

We started some new ones this year that aren’t food related. We’re going to get Moon Pie a lego set, at least one book every Christmas, and one geeky science gift (this year, Periodic table wooden blocks).

I also am going to abolish one old food tradition.

Do you know what little smokies are? They are basically little sausages that are cooked in a mixture of honey, brown sugar, and mustard. If you had asked me three days ago, I would have said they are sinfully delicious.

I made them today.

They were fatty and disgusting. I’m not being all “I only eat healthy food so fatty food is gross.” No, fattening food can be awesome. The sausage gravy I made for breakfast this morning was incredible.

But these… I ate maybe five, and we’re throwing away the rest.

Even the picture looks gross to me now. Ugh.

I’ve had little smokies at every Christmas for the past twenty years. This tradition is being retired.

Oh, and in blog news, I’ve recently installed Disqus. I’m hoping it’ll make it easier for me to reply to comments and be a better blogger. Please let me know if there are any issues!

    Make sure Moon Pie is a good baby-infant and doesn’t leave his Lego’s out. Ever step on a Lego? Major OUCH! and ya, I command you to crack a smile in your next pic.

      Will do on the smile. And stepping on legos before is like getting stabbed. I don’t think I thought this Lego gift thing through very well…

    Happy first Christmas, Moon Pie!

    Funny how our body sometimes rejects something that we used to love.
