Weigh-In-Wednesday

It has been about 3 weeks since I officially weighed in. Here is my first official weigh-in of 2011. Today the scale read 170.8. That is a couple pound gain since I last reported, but it is only .3 off of what I weighed at the beginning of December. I will take that! A .3 pound gain in December is acceptable to me. Maybe I'm justifying it too much, should a gain ever be acceptable especially considering I was actually down during the first two weeks of December? Be honest, people. I can take the truth.
Bigger picture news. I began this journey at 205.5 pounds, today's weigh in brings me to a net loss of 34.7 pounds this year. That is 16.89%!
This is my blogiversary! I am so grateful for having made the decision to blog about my weight loss journey. It motivates me to do better because I am accountable. I have also made some great friends in cyberworld and reading your blogs motivates me even more! Today has to be a short post, but I hope to do a post tomorrow. It will be more about how wonderful you all are and what you have meant to me over the past year.

    I think a .3 gain for the month of December is completely acceptable...that is my opinion!

  5. I know how you feel. I'm 2 kg (4.5 pound) heavier than my lowest December weight. That puts me back about the same as at the beginning of the month. I'm not altogether happy about it but not overwhelmed either.

    Happy Blogiversary. Keep it up and you'll see you're goal this year.

    Blessings
