Week #77: Stayed the same for a total of -116 lb

OK, so there are two more weigh-ins until Christmas Day and my early Christmas present to myself will be to get four pounds off by then... giving me a total of -120 lb and putting me at the half-way mark of my goal to lose 240 lb.

Christmas parties and family get-togethers abounded this past week. I'm never tempted, quite frankly, but it's still a challenge because you can definitely over-eat even on the good stuff!

For the next two weeks, I'm going to be a good boy and save the treats (low-carb treats, of course) for Christmas itself!

I will drink all my water, be very careful about my carbs, and watch my nut intake - which is really difficult at this time of the year. Why does the season for all those fresh, delicious nuts in the shell (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, etc.) fall right at Christmas? Well, hey... that's life, eh? Temptations are just that... temptations. And I'm stronger than any temptation out there. PERIOD!! Got it? Good!

And you know what, if you put your mind to it, you're stronger than any temptation out there, too!

No excuses! If I can do it, so can you!

Be good and we'll see you next week!
