Week #79: Stayed the same for a total of -117 lb

It's winter, so be careful when sticking your tongue out for those snowflakes! Hehe Not sure if what those birds have in mind is low-carb or not, but best not to find out, eh?

I stayed the same this week, so didn't get to the -120 lb mark, but that's OK. Christmas is so crazy I'm just as happy to stay the same until the holidays are over. The holidays are always a challenge because routines are thrown into chaos. My water consumption has really taken a hit, too. I'll have to work on that while I'm home on vacation for two weeks.

I still plan on going completely sweet-free on January 1, 2009, for the entire month. I want to see if that kickstarts the "major" weight loss again (at least -2 lb per week consistently). It's working miracles for others who are trying it. I hope it does for me, too! I can't wait to see how it goes, although I have to admit that the idea of zero sweet-tasting things is a bit daunting. That includes no diet pop, no fruit at all, nothing with even Splenda in it... Yikes!

Until then, the holidays are here and it's time to celebrate... but that doesn't mean going hog-wild. It means eating low-carb and having fun with friends and family. It seems a bit strange to celebrate the birth of Jesus by eating junk that is bad for you, doesn't it? Best to stay on the healthy side.

If I can do it, so can you!

No excuses! See you next week!
