Hello Fraaaanns!  Sorry I haven't posted in about a week.  With Christmas, our vacation after Christmas, work and kids I've been a busy bee.  Even though I've been on a small hiatus in Blogland, doesn't mean I've taken a hiatus to my weight loss.  In fact, I had a bangin' week!  I was astonished when I saw the scale Friday mornin'.  I didn't walk, not even once, and I made some small bad food choices.  Not totally bad ones, but just a few here and there.  I still stayed within my calorie range and accounted everything I took in, but they weren't the most nutritional choices out there.  One of the things I wait for all year that is totally bad but I can't resist
Peppermint this shit.  Good thing it's not around all year.  That would be BAD.

But come Friday....I WAS DOWN 4.8 LBS!!!!!! BAM.  Now given this week I was down so much but made not-so-good food choices, I'm not going to let my undeserved success persuade me to keep up the choices I made.  I KNOW, from experience, that it will eventually catch back up with me. 

What are your Christmas sweet evils?  Do you let yourself somewhat enjoy these vices during this time of year?

HAPPY FRIDAY! Today was weigh-in day (I've kept my promise!) and I'm down 1.6lbs...YAY!  I'm so super happy that I've been able to get out of the funk I was stuck in forever it seems.  For the last 2 weeks, I've seen the scale move down.  Even during Thanksgiving and the Thanksgiving Eve potlucks and work bdays we've had this week.  Yes, I had cake, a small peice, but I made real good choices all around.  I'm still stuck in my 18s, which is the same size I was at surgery (and biggest size ever), but they look like I told a big old shit in 'em.  16s are just not cuttin' it right now so I'm makin' do and bein' sure to pull those britches up!  >>insert smiley<<
I had my first fill on Tuesday.  The nurse should be shot.  Bitch hurt the hell outta me and I was so scared she was gonna dislodge the mothaf@#$&*.  Seriously, is it always that bad?  Hopefully the smaller my belly gets the less horrifying that will be.  But it's all good, I don't think I'm at great restriction but I'm finding myself less hungry in between meals.  Before this fill I was starving (not the head kind either, like burning stomach, growling kind) within about an hour or two of eating.  For this, I am thankful.
It's also FRIDAY so that means it's BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy! Brought to you by the one and only Drazil! We answer a couple of questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy and paste and answer in your own blogs if you'd like!! ENJOY!!
  1. Describe the structure you live in. (apartment, condo, house, mansion, cardboard box?)
    I live in a House.  It's one story, three bedrooms with a fenced in backyard that my furbabies love.  It's not big, but its enough for us. 
  2. Describe the city you live in. (population, main attractions)
    I live in Katy, TX which is a smaller big town on the left side of Houston.  I lived in Houston for about 3 years and found out very quickly that I'm a small town girl.  I live off one of the major streets in Katy so everything I will almost ever need is right there and I haven't needed to go to Houston for anything since moving here.  Thank Gawd.  People here are so snooty.  :(
  3. Why do you live in the town you live in? (job, to get away from a different town, family, schools?)
    Well, when I met my hubby I told him that when I graduated I was getting out of the small town I grew up in and he could either stay with me and come, or not and we'd go our separate ways.  Well he came with me and has a fabulous job and I've been pestering him ever since to move back home.  I've got a good job here too so that's why we are still here.
  4. What’s the view like from your backyard?
    Nothing special, our backyard.
  5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.
    In real life, things are going good with the weight loss.  It's been a busy week at work so I'm happy today is Friday.
    In blogland, I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like but I still read all yours! :)
