Why do I even weigh-in the week between Xmas and New Year's?!

I have gained 5 (almost 6) pounds in the past two weeks. Four have been this week. How is that even possible? I definitely have been overeating, but I can't see that I've been overeating THAT much and I still have been exercising. :-( Oh well. The good news is that it should come off FAST as soon as I get a grip and stop indulging...after this weekend.

Happy New Year to all!!

I haven't weighed since Thanksgiving... I know I have gained and just said I would weigh in on January 1st or maybe the 7th since Fang is home all week and next. I remembered your DB had shoulder surgery, but I kept better details in my brain about your toe, so I'm going to have to reread those posts.

Your Christmas fun sounded so great. I asked for the Notebook DVD for my birthday . . . I have never seen the movie, but heard it is really good.

P.S. You two look so cute in your pjs.

Helen, don't worry about it. You're right, it's the week after Christmas and the week before New Year's and you've been having fun. So what? You're still probably not eating as much as you did in years gone past AND you're getting back into the swing of things. Frankly, these times of year are useful for us. It's a way to figure out what we enjoy and what we really like. I only wish I had written more about what I loved to eat so next year, I will say, "I'll have this but not that."

My WW leader said she plans to gain 2-3 pounds over Christmas because she knows it's a fun time, etc. etc. So be good to yourself. Say hi to DB and I hope he's feeling better.

Hey, you get lots of extra points for weighing in during this magic time. You got feedback and information and my guess is that you're not likely to overdo on New Year's after doing so.

My former WW leader used to say that if you gain a bunch very fast and then get back to basics quickly, those extra pounds will drop off because they're just visiting, not family.
