Sometimes Fridays are hard

The weigh-in today was not good. I have been very bad this week. I have excuses, but I hate that so I just post the truth, feel bad about it and will move on. I'm looking at a week of vacation next week and I know it will get worse before it gets better. And it's ME that's making this happen so nothing and no one else to blame. It's ME that's ingested the calories that have made me gain back too much of what I lost last year (thankfully not all of it). It's ME that had to re-commit. It's hard.

I need my vacation badly. We leave tomorrow morning for Lake Tahoe for a week. We'll be staying in a house where we've stayed before and it's lovely. I can't wait to ski!! Both DB and I have our own new boots and I have a new coat...very exciting. Of course, with the economy, we can't ski as much as we'd like to...it's SO expensive. But oh well...

Thanks to all of you who remarked about my arms, etc. It feels good...and it also feels false because the rest of me is very NOT in shape. At least not the shape I want to be in. But I'm back to trying to figure out just how much I want it.

At least I still weigh on Fridays and face the truth...no matter how ugly.

I hope you enjoy your vacation . . . you snow bunny you.

Looking at your pictures from the ball - I can tell you and DB have such fun with each other! And you look super fantastic! You look just like a young Julie Andrews!

Have a great vacation! I know you'll enjoy yourself in the snow and being a snow bunny.

Remember, this is just ONE Friday. OK? Be nice to yourself.

I think it is great that you weigh in and face the truth. I gain more when I hide. You will get through it all. I am happy for you to have a vacation. I have been taking PTO here and there but no big block or getaway is planned for some time. I hope you enjoy it, in fact I bet you are enjoying it right now!
