Food is not a good gift

Today's Weigh-In: 223.2 lbs.
5-day Average: 222.96 lbs.

Hey everybody. Not too much to report. I can't wait for the holiday season to be over, too much stress, too much food. Who's great idea was it to start the tradition of giving food as gifts? Mondo popcorn tubs, chocolate covered cherries, almond roca. Whoever it was I want to punch them in the nuts. Now I have to find someone else to give this stuff to, since I can't even have it around the house. Not a good gift, if you ask me.

I'm going to change my end of year goal to 220 lbs., since I'm losing weight more slowly than I had expected. 215 lbs. will now be my end of January goal since I only seem to be able to lose 5 lbs. a month. Not that I mind, since the slower I lose the weight the less likely I am to damage my metabolism or burn muscle, it just takes longer. I'll get there.

Sometimes, the most random comments just crack me up. Punch them in the nuts for getting you - well, nuts.

I hear you 100% though - it's incredibly frustrating. Ironic - this time last year we would have LOVED it.

Lifestyle change.

Funny I read this just as I received a gift of peppermint bark. I shoved it in a desk drawer...out of sight..out of mind. Slow and steady seems to be the best way, imo.
