    Cool Dreading Wednesday - going home to scales :(

    We've been on vacation 10 days with friends who are fabulous cooks and who love going out. It is an absolute ball. Last year, being only a few months out with sleeve, I actually brought my scales with me. This year I did not.

    So Wednesday morning will be a day of reckoning.I haven't made terrible choices (I don't think) and I've tracked it all but my steps are way down.

    But I'm not my number and I can get off anything I got on, right?

    4 MO = 140.6

    Of course you can!
    But it will not be much, if any.
    With mostly healthy choices there is not much that can go wrong, is there?
    And if so, you had a great time and now it is back to the basics.
    Don't worry, you'll be fine either way!

    Come on Annie, you are more than a number on the scales. :-)
    You have had a fabulous vacation so concentrate on the memories of that and don't stress about the scales.
    It may well have moved to a number that you are not best pleased with, but you know how to deal with that and you will.

    I gained 5 pounds over the holidays (also my birthday!). So far I've lost 2 of them. I saw my doctor today who didn't yell at me, said weight gain is common this time of year. I've got this! (I hope).

    If you gained you can lose it.
    I lost too much weight and had to gain 25lbs to get up to my goal.
    (Never had that problem before :-) )
    So over a few months I gained and then before I knew it I was 10lbs over my goal.
    I got right back into counting calories and I lost it very fast, and I've maintained since.
    So dont stress it too much. You'll be able to loose IF you gained
    sleeved 12/30/14 @255lbs Goal 140lbs
    3/3/15- 208lbs 6/14/15- 163lbs
    lost 92lbs in 1st 6mo
    9/10/15- 139 1/5/2016 - 128lbs
    lost 128lbs in 1 year
    4/4/16 - 123lbs 7/4/16 - 129lbs 12/3/16- 130
    still 128lb loss@2 year mark-11lbs below goal
    gained 13lbs by 3 year mark weighing 142lbs
    Gained up to 158 by 3 years 3 months!
    3.5 years back to 142
    hoping to stay between 140lbs-145lbs
    Its been 3.5 years!! If I can do it,
    you can do it!
