Turkey Day & Weigh In Report

Later today we go to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family!

My mom and I are preparing all of the food and nothing on the menu will be low calorie or clean items except an Apple Crisp but I am so okay with that because I plan to fill up on the vegetable dishes and turkey (white meat, of course!), drink lots of water and at the end of the meal if I want I will have a piece of dessert with a hot cup of tea.

I plan on living like a NORMAL person today, one who is FREE from addiction and knows extremes....I am done with the ALL OR NOTHING ATTITUDE....forever!!
There is absolutely no life in it! as anyone who battles it or has battled it can attest to.

I have a long run planned for during the children's nap time this afternoon because my husband is home to sit with them. I can't express how giddy with excitement I am about going for a run! This seems so funny to me because 9 months ago I never thought I would run down the street never mind 8km.

With the struggles I have been having the last 2 weeks I was sure that my weight would be up but I guess I must have had more on track time then I thought because my weigh in this morning had me at
150 lbs on the button! Not a huge loss for 2 weeks but at least a loss. I am good with it and truthfully would have been good with whatever it said because I know my focus has been off.

The loss is another thing to add to my list of things I am thankful for today!


  1. I think you're doing great. Sometimes it's hard for us to see that in ourselves. But the scale doesn't lie. Good job and happy Thanks Giving.

  2. Amen. That's true healing Christine. I'd die to be 150 pounds!!!! That's so far down from your highest weight! You're doing so well and I"m proud of you. Watch your mail this week...hint, hint.

  3. Way to go Christine! On your loss and getting to 8km! I'm glad you had a great day too :)

  4. Woo wooo!!!!! So so glad for that 150 number!! Excellent!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving, lovie!

  5. Yay, congratulations on your loss and walking in freedom!!
