Hi !
I can't believe December is already here. This year has gone by so fast.

Last year at this time I was getting used to Weight Watchers changing its program. It was a hard transition at first but I am so pleased with it now. I really feel it helps me make better choices. I was definitely guilty of slotting food in for points, rather then think about what I was eating. Now I am much more thoughtful about it.

Well I didn't get picked for the magazine. I really wasn't too upset, I never thought I had a real shot -winning would have been surreal.

I am also very close to my highest allowable weight with Weight Watchers. The weight range goes by your BMI and I am only 3 pounds away from not even considered 'overweight'!! (Weight Watchers 'highest weight' allowed for my height)

So crazy to me. I would like to try to be right in the middle of my 'acceptable' weight range, so maybe 13 more pounds total.

This time of year is really hard for me-I got through Thanksgiving and did great (pre-planned my day, pointed it all out) and ended up with a loss the next day at Weight Watchers. Christmas is harder for me because there is just stuff EVERYWHERE. Every catalog seems to be selling cheesecakes, fancy chocolates, baked goods. Plus so much baking I have to do-for teachers, bus drivers, neighbors, cub scouts etc. My head is spinning.

I did not have any dessert with Thanksgiving, but think I am going to try to save some points for it on Christmas day.

I am really looking forward to the holidays and seeing my sons face on Christmas morning! I hope you all have a fabulous holiday season, no matter how you celebrate it.

Here is a picture of me taken on Thanksgiving last week. Total loss is 296 pounds!



  1. You look wonderful in this picture. And I know I say this every time you post but you are such a source of inspiration.

    Thanksgiving was good for me but the days that followed sucked. Gotta get back on tracking. Did you hear about the new changes on WW? Since I don't go to the meetings I have to read about them on the site which I hope to do soon.
