No where to go but down....

I'm up a pound - or make that a pound and a half since I gained a half a pound at my last weigh in. Which I the grand scheme of things could be gone tomorrow but...SIGH.

It's really annoying.

I guess what I need to do is pretend like I'm just starting from this weight as opposed to being at the end. I think I'm exercising enough - but I need to focus more on salad, less on sandwiches and stop eating dessert.

That'll be a start at least. Truthfully though - if I can just get to January maintaining my current weight I'll be a happy camper.

I've lost just under 60 lbs since last year. That's certainly nothing to sneeze at.

Lunch today was some pita chips and hummus (unpictured), a half a baked chicken breast (unpictured) and dumplings and broccoli:

I'm going out tonight to see my friends at the 8th St Wine Bar (fun) and have our (unfortunately) annual Yankee Swap (not fun).

Dwight is right. It's like Machiavelli meets Christmas.

I'd protest louder but no one seems to listen. It's just the opposite of the spirit of the holiday in my opinion. If it goes the way I think it will I am absolutely not going to do this again next year. It puts me in a very bad mood instantly.

Well - maybe that's really the extra pound talking - but you know what I mean.


  1. Omg that is so funny b/c I literally just had a friend ask me if I want to be involved in her annual yankee swap and I was like - NOOOOOO! Okay, so I was nicer about it - but ugh - they do my head in.

  2. It's so mean!!! I just don't understand the whole need to steal. Luckily my night turned out OK this year but it hasn't been good in the past.
