lol!

I hear you on that one. The beginning of this month started out great for me, but this past week, I have had zero energy and zero motivation. I haven't done a "real" workout in a few days.

If only it was as easy to stick to a diet and workout plan as it is to set an alarm and take a BBT every morning! Erf. I can set a workout alarm all I like. It's not going to make me get on that elliptical trainer. Haha

Agreed! Not just for parties, but all the holiday-themed goodies! Peppermint mochas, candy canes, fruitcakes... Man. I'm glad I'm not exposed to that stuff much, 'cause I'd want to stuff my face every chance I got.

It's bad enough DH brought home GIANT chocolate chip cookies last night! lol

Eep! That's gotta be rough!

Does chewing gum help you avoid snacking? Sometimes it does for me.

I participate in other fitness-focused forums, but I think it would be neat to have the specific kind of support of other TTCers, so I'll hop on board! I only have about 15 lbs to lose, but I've trying to lose this same 15 lbs for freaking ever, but lose motivation and consistency. Lost it all and regained it a couple years ago. I would like to get my BMI closer to the middle of the healthy range instead of bouncing between upper end of healthy and lower end of overweight. Looking forward to working with you all!

Stats:
Height: 5 feet 6 inches
Starting Weight: 153 lbs
Goal Weight: 138 lbs

Weigh-ins:
December 8: (Wasn't participating)
December 15: 153 lbs
December 22:
December 29:

Total for December: +/-

Things I struggled with this month: Just starting today, but I can say I've definitely struggled with both eating habits (too many indulgences) and getting consistent exercise so far this month. The exercise portion is getting better and I'm working at getting my nutrition back on track as well.

Things I did well this month: Drank plenty of water, focused on good posture/alignment, and consistently took my vitamins/supplements (e.g., folic acid, D3, etc.).
Welcome!

Thanks for the welcome, ladies.

Oh the holidays. I've been so bad. Cookies, cocoa, snacks at work, even a holiday dinner tonight. Ughhh. I've kinda accepted that this week is just going to be pretty nutty. Not using that as a reason to freefall into the nearest plate of cookies, though (who am I kidding, I probably am)!

Do any of you use goal dates or are trying to lose a certain amount each week? Or do you focus more on letting it happen at its own pace? Just curious. :-)

I've pretty much figured our that I WILL mess up regularly with my eating plan until after Christmas! My "goal" is not to GAIN thru the end of next week! lol Seriously tho...I try to aim to lose between 1-2 pounds a week, granted when I get serious about it I can do better than that, but that's the WW goal.....My Ultimate goal is to lose 70+ in the next year, which may be a little unrealistic but I figure if I could lose 110 in 2 years I can do it if I buckle down & WORK on it......That's the hard part! Thinking about getting a gym membership next month? Thoughts or anyone do that? I used to do curves, but I hated it & felt stupid doing it.....
