December 2012 Wrap Up

My apologies for missing two posts that should have been made on December 25th and December 30th.  My parents drove to Arizona to spend the holidays with me.  It was great to see my mom and dad as well as my nephew.  I meant to post updates but I was enjoying the visit so much that I did not want to pull myself away.  On to the business at hand, the month of December has come to a close and with it, the third chapter of my weight loss journey.  I am afraid that I am sliding in the wrong direction.  I will not be making excuses about it being the holidays or my parents visiting.  There are always choices to be made and I did not make good ones as often as I should have.  I have gained back another three pounds since the post on December 20th.  How easily it goes back on!  My current weight is 343 pounds.

I am trying to remember all that I need to confess.  I had soda multiple times.  Once when we went to the theater, once when we went out to eat, and at least twice when my kids got soda and did not finish them.  I also did poorly on limiting myself to one serving.  I had second servings many times, probably too many for me to remember over this span of days.  I failed big time when I could have made the right decision and I have no one to blame but myself.

The thing I have to remember is that these failures are in the past.  I have to pick myself up and keep going.  I cannot change the past and can only do something with today.  That is all I can offer right now.  Just like life, you dust yourself off and get right back to it.

So, here is the wrap up for December 2012:
  • Total weight loss to date: 7 pounds
  • Total weight loss this year: 7 pounds
  • Total weight gain December 2012: 4 pounds
  • Total weight still to lose: 144 pounds
I will also post a quick year in review for 2012 today.  Other than that, my next regularly scheduled blog post will be on January 5th where I hope to report better results.  Stay tuned!
