It's been a couple months since I checked in here, but I'm holding steady at 168. With classes to attend and work to do it has been nearly impossible to fit in workouts. But I do walk the mile round-trip to and from campus each day (sometimes more than once) so that has at least kept me from gaining anything which I guess is a good thing. I'm only 2 lbs short from 40 lost. So very close! 8 lbs away from my ultimate goal. With Thanksgiving next week, though, I might end up going back into the 170s...need to remember to work out after turkey day.

Maybe work in some isometrics after getting home? It will work off some of that stress from the day. Kinda tough to get motivated if you're pooped after a long day, though.

I've been trying to reduce my sugar and salt intake. The sugar can be better avoided than the salt, though. Sodium is in high levels in so many things. There's this crusade to reduce sugar in things, plus artificial sweeteners. What about doing the same thing for salt?

Half a pound on this week, which is neither here or there, making me nine stone eight and a half pounds . The next couple of weeks are my "rubbish" weeks, so I'll see how I go and start again on January 2nd smile

I've said before that November/December is my "rubbish diet months" seeming there are so many celebrations. With almost a week of celebrations - and two meals in within a week! - no surprise that this week I'm nine stone eleven and a quarter pounds a gain of three and a quarter pounds in two weeks. It could have been a lot worse laugh Onwards and upwards until Christmas smile

I wouldn't be surprised if I drop again Sunday. My old record of 32,718 steps was smashed yesterday by breaking six more 500 step plateaus:

33,000
33,500
34,000
34,500
35,000
35,500

The bolded one got me a new badge from Fitbit. I ended at 35,604, or 16.33 miles.

I did exactly as I thought I would. Down 2½ to 12 st 9½ pounds.

Also, both of my walking days (as I got off early both Tuesday and Thursday), I went over 9½ miles on my walks (3 hours each).

Up a modest one this week, so am at 12 st 10½ pounds. I've stayed in a 3 pound range since September 1, which suits me fine.

Christmas over and done with for another year! laugh Believe me, friends, I've eaten what I've wanted through most of December, with Birthdays, meals out and Christmas to deal with. But it's back on the "diet wagon" straight away tomorrow (with a FEW new year day treats) and firmly on it on the 2nd! All the goodies are now stored in the shed, so that me and Mum have to FORCE ourselves to go and get them! smilee
We've "banished" the weighing scales the last few weeks but I braved them today. I am ten stone and three quarter pounds today. I've "only" put on three and a bit pounds in two weeks. That I can live with smile
Onwards and upwards for 2014 friends xxx

Jane, those pounds will probably melt away in the next week or two. Holiday calories don't count, right?? smile
