Masochistic Mondays: week 17

The Stats (as of November 23, 2009)
Starting Weight: 188lbs
Current Weight: 179.2 lbs

As awful as it is to say it, the past couple weeks exercise and conscious eating have not been a priority for me. I've had a lot on my mind with my job situation that I just didn't have much room for anything else. I've tried to stay active (though the end of the week was a bust, fresh start today, I swear) and though I didn't make the healthiest food decisions, they were not the worst. Though I did notice while whipping up a cheesecake last night that I mindlessly munched on a few chocolate wafer cookies without even considering what was appropriate serving-wise or even how my body felt regarding food, which is perhaps the most troubling. I had been feeling overly full from dinner and still I popped a few cookies into the ole trap. That is something I would like NOT to happen again. Especially this time of year when goodies will be all over the place.

This is going to take some effort, probably more effort than I was putting into it before. But I would like to come out on the other side of the holidays without gaining the weight I have lost back. It'll be tough because I haven't really lost that much weight (especially considering how easily I can pack it on). I'm really hoping that being held accountable here will help, but as an added bonus I've picked up a Motivation Buddy through Prior Fat Girl. My partner, Jesse, and I will just check in on each other regularly, give words of encouragement and ears (or eyes I guess since we communicate through email) to moan to. Fingers crossed that with people "counting on" me, I won't revert back to my old ways.
