HCB's Journal, 13 December 2012

Working on small losses today, and focusing on not gaining the next three weeks.

We only have two or three events where there will be Holiday feasting; but I am usually able to control.

I am eating a few more calories and carbs the last three days though - not my preferred mode of operating. Not sure why - but I want to nip that in the bud so I don't create a habit.

My body tends to have a weight range in which it operates as it slowly inches downward. My recorded weight right now is the lowest end of the range and I seem to be working within a two pound window. If I can end December at 175 or 176, I will count it a success.

The sadness of my nephew's death is hitting me now. Not sleeping well.

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today

HCB I'm so sorry you are going through this. Maybe you can conjour up your mind blanking tricks that I know you have. I was doing them last night trying not to think about issues that the committee in my head was trying to discuss. :)

Very sorry to hear you're struggling. I can only imagine how devastating it must be to deal with the loss of your nephew. Sounds like you have a good plan for the holidays. You and I both are stuck in the 170's right now - go figure! We'll get out of them, I would bet on us at this point. Much love and be assured you are in my thoughts!

Making it through hard times like you're facing is quite a challenge, and it seems that you - everything considered - are handling it all well. When we have shocks like what you have gone through, we need to work with them, and they take time and energy. Sooner or later, you'll be on the other side of it. You're in my thoughts.

You are amazing how you can stay in control during such turmoil. Hopefully you will find the rest you need, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
