The Challenge

So I didn't post last week due to illness. I really expected to be up this week due to the fact that the only thing being sick didn't effect was my appetite. But I have good news - I actually am down a pound. I will definitely take that. With Thanksgiving a week away I guess it is time to plan my strategy for the holidays. I really hope have decided to just maintain throughout the next six weeks. I don't expect to lose anything, and since I am starting the season right at the top of my comfort zone, my true desire is not to do any damage by gaining. It won't be easy. Good food will be more plentiful than ever, but I will try to remember that just because it is there doesn't mean I have to eat it. Check out more at Tales from the Scales...

Congrats on the 1 pound! I bet you could lose even through the holidays. While I plan on having a few indulgences myself, I also plan on moderation and continuing my loss. I bet you could do that.

Don't just HOPE to maintain during the holidays -- DECIDE to!! You can do this!! Refocus daily -- even hourly, if you need to -- and beat the temptation to stuff yourself like a turkey! Easier said than done, I know, but you'll be so happy with yourself once it's over.

Your body must have used more energy to fight the illness than you thought! :) WTG on the loss, no matter how it came about!

Congrats on the loss! My goal is to maintain over the holidays, too. I figure I have one more week to lose and then I'll go into maintenance.

Good luck this week!
