When you have a weight loss blog and are actively losing weight, it’s fun to write about all the things you’re eating and stuff you’re doing that’s making the scale your friend. Over the last six months, maybe even more, I can count on both hands how many legit “Reduce Mode” days I’ve had in terms of both eating and exercise. Most of them happened pre-surgery.

I’ve weighed myself (on a regular scale, not the Quantum one) twice in the last several weeks, and the number was the same both times…ready for it? I weigh 160. Eeeeehhhh…I could panic. But I won’t. Okay I’m lying, I am somewhat panicking, but I am putting it into perspective. I was expecting a much higher number. I think 160 might be my body’s new set point aka “comfortable weight,” which is something I will have to break through.

These photos were all taken at company holiday functions (2009, 2011, 2013). At least I can still make 160 look good, right? HEY BE NICE.

This morning I got up and cooked for the first time in weeks. Scrambled eggs and avocado. That’s probably what I’ll be having the next several breakfasts because this is what my fridge has looked like for a while. Longer than I care to admit.ย What am I, in college again? Wait I never went to college.

I promise you, I haven’t given up, not even a little bit. I’m just honing my “maintenance” skills…right? Right? Right. With it being the end of December (and still in the 70s, Cali what what?) it would be too easy for me to check out and completely give up until January 1st, but I won’t.

This will probably be my last post of the year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    You look beautiful honey! =)
    Good! Don’t give up! And don’t use the new year as an excuse to not doing anything until 2014!
    Well done!

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance! Hope 2014 is perfect for you! =)

    Haha, that’s exactly what my fridge looks like! So empty… I’m stuck having frozen veg and chicken breast… better than something unhealthy I guess!
