Thank yous & Good News & everything comes in threes

First of all I want to thank everyone for your support on Christmas eve and Christmas Day. Even though there was no one at my house Christmas morning, thanks to you, I did not feel alone at all. What a wonderful group of people. You all took time out of your Christmas holiday to lend a helping hand and I am so touched by your kindness.

Now for the good news! I lost 3 lbs! I am now at 372. I could not believe it. I thought for sure I had gained 5 lbs because I wasn't eating well when I was sick. 3 lbs is a huge step in the right direction! And now for the other good news.... on the 26th my family started feeling better and asked me over for a late Christmas dinner. I drank a ton of water all day and a nice big salad with a side of fat free salad dressing before I went over to have dinner. The plan worked out very well. I took a little spoonful of everything I wanted to try for my first plate and ate it slow while we chatted around the table. Then when everyone else went back for seconds I picked two of the dishes I really really wanted and had about 1/3 cup of each. It worked out great!

I look forward to this next week.
My goals
Blog at least 3 times this week. I wanted to say everyday I know that if I missed one day I would beat myself up about it. I will be happy with 3.
Drink 64oz at at least 3 times this week!
Do something active 3 time this week!
And the most important goal of all I WILL NOT BEAT MYSELF UP IF I DON'T COMPLETE ALL OF MY GOALS.
