NYC Picture Post!! Weight..errr...gain. And Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!!

It has been almost a month since I have posted and so many things have happened...New York City, Christmas, New Years!!

First of all...NYC was amazing! I wish we could have stayed for a month but my checking account wouldn't have been able to handle that. It was barely able to handle 6 days! I took about 800 pictures but because that would take you an hour to look at them, I decided to post only a few :)

We shopped until we dropped, ate at some amazing restaurants, went to a Broadway show, went on some awesome tours, met some nice and not-so-nice people and best of all I made wonderful memories with some of my best friends! Maybe I will post some more pictures in another post.

Christmas was wonderful. Spent quality time with my family and friends. It always comes and goes so fast...which makes me sad. Today we spent the entire day taking down all the Christmas decorations. Sad again.

I spent New Years Eve in Auburn. We had a great time. Went to dinner and then to a local restaurant/lounge and heard a local band while bringing in the new year. Happy 2012. This is going to be a great year. Several resolutions have been set. Which brings me to my next point.

Weight loss. Weight gain. Whatever. Ha!

The day before I left for New York I weighed 178.8 pounds. And to be completely honest, since my surgery, I don't think I have eaten as bad as I did in NYC. Literally we ate out for every single meal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and, on most days, dessert. For the first two days I tried to make health"IER" food choices. That didn't last too long. But I wasn't there to lose weight.

I felt heavier. I knew I had gained. But I was fine with that. Then only 4 days after we came home....Christmas....and all that delicious food for several days at all the family gatherings.

So the time came to weigh myself. Was I a little nervous? Yes. But as of yesterday morning, I weighed 183.0 pounds. Gained about 4 pounds in NYC and over Christmas. Typical I guess.

But lucky for is NEW YEARS and the perfect time to start over. Right?! My goal still remains to hit my final goal weight of 160 pounds on my birthday. April 18th. That means 23 pounds in the next 3 and 1/2 months.

It can be done. I am ready :) Hope everyone had a fabulous and safe New Years!! Enjoy the pictures!

  8. 4 pounds? Who cares! You had fun, I'm sure you walked a ton. It's all water weight. (I hate when people say that to me, but I think it definitely is for you!)
