Quinn, Donna, so many of you guys seem to be doing so well. I gotta "tighten my belt" "buckle down" or something.

Ron, so glad you're back! I was wondering where you were. "Indulge in moderation" I like that.

Now, where is Mern????

Welcome back Ron! I was wondering where you were. Congrats on the 1.2lb weight loss especially this time of year with the busyness of life and extra calories from parties.
Missing Mern too!

I'm back. Sorry for all the ghost talk everyone. I hope I didn't offened anyone with it.

Back to my goals, so far so good. Only one pb&j sammich for the week. Only got up once to eat (that was the pop tart night). My main issue is sleep. I am an extremely light sleeper. Mytsie is a total daddy's girl and insists on sleeping up against me. She tends to run marathons in her sleep, with her little paws twitching on me. It wakes me up because it feels like I have a light muscle twitch. I've been putting in a "sleep" CD and playing it lightly, for the past two nights. I don't know if it's affecting Mytsie, but since then, she's sleep on her mama's (my GF) side of the bed. I've been getting over 7 hours of uninterupted sleep for two night. Since I'm sleeping, I'm not eating and I'm waking up feeling great!

On policies... zero this week and I'm once again dealing with computer and system issues.

Seems like everyones attitudes are more positive this week and the group seems to be avoiding most of the temptations that are everywhere this time of year (or at least feeling badly after they give in, lol).

Keep your goals in mind as you are tempted by all those holiday goodies. My favorite saying currently is "indulge in moderation".
Great job on the weight loss this time of year, Ron! I'm following the same path as you, "indulge in moderation". A few Hershey's Miniatures entered my path today, but the damage could have been worse. At least I quit after just a couple.

A pretty good day food-wise... Supper could have been a little healthier, but within limits. 15 dozen cookies done, 5 dozen more tomorrow, fudge this weekend and so far, I'm pretty much resisting it all. Although, in the north, we freeze everything in our garages or whatever, so they are out of my reach and it's too cold to go out there for a cookie! lol I'll bring them in next week and then, all bets are off! I'm really proud of myself this year. Every year since I lost my weight, I've thrown caution to the wind, ate whatever I wanted in December and then repaired the damage in January. But, not this year. Maybe I'm just getting older, maybe it's because I have a physical in January... but whatever it is, it's working.

Thursday:

1. Calories under 1100/day. Yes, Yes, Yes, I think so
2. Weigh in daily. Yes, Yes, Yes,Yes
3. No mindless eating. Yes, Yes, Not bad..., None
4. Take all vitamins and supplements. Yes, Yes, What I could. (ran out of calcium) Forgot to buy calcium today, but remembered marshmallow creme, walnuts and chocolate chips... go figure.
5. Be proud of every, single thing that I eat. Yes, Mostly..., Except for a little cookie dough, Good except for 3 Dark Hershey Miniatures
6. Have a happy, grateful attitude. If that means bagging some long-time traditions that the family expects, so be it. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
