Looking Great in 2008 Week #17

Happy new year! I missed weeks 15 and 16, but Im here and being accountable now. I am up 1.4 unfortunately. The first time during this challenge I have had to report a gain.

But a few things...I know why I am up. New years eve was a blast, but I definitely indulged in a few things I shouldnt have, namely popcorn, cheese and crackers, reuben dip, and alcohol. So I know that is why I am up and it is completely my own fault. In a way, thats a nice feeling, to be able to not wonder, why am I up? I know why I am and now I can make changes to ensure that is as high up as I am going to get. It does suck that I seem to be moving further away from the 170s, but I know that I can get back there after a week or 2 of clean eating and journaling again. If I had followed my plan to a T and gained, I would be upset and frustrated. And while I am not happy that I am up, I also know that this will go down by following what I know. Plus TOM is here and Im sure that doesnt help matters at all. Definitely retaining a lot of water.

But this year on New years, I felt great and knew that I looked great too. This year I was definitely not disapointed in my picture!

You look AWESOME! That small gain will be gone in no time. We're all going to get back in our healthy habits and will be reporting losses next week. :-D

OMG... you look GREAT!!!

I'm sure you'll have those re-gained pounds off before you know it! Almost everyone gained over the holidays... so don't feel bad. :)

Everybody wants to look as pretty as you do right now!!! Being aware of what you're eating really makes a difference. That was a relatively small weight gain and you can get that off in no time! Good luck.

YOU LOOK AMAZING! How cool are you? I can't wait until I can like the way I look in pictures again (maybe in the Springtime)! Congrats on your control over the holiday, a few pounds is NOTHING! You will get them right back off & some more after that. This will be the year we do it!
