    I hope you all have a great holiday!
    I am currently convinced that Christmas time is evil for me on a diet. Chocolate has completely taken my cravings.. T_T
    I did see 147.8 the other day, but now I'm bouncing around between 147.8 and 149.2... I just wish that I could get to my normal BMI weight range which is 145 or below. But if it doesn't happen until after this holiday season, I guess that's okay. I get so fixated on the number on the scale going down that I completely miss the fact that I've gone from size 22 jeans to size 8, I was 234 pounds and am now under 150. All within about 9 months or so..
    Hopefully I can maintain below 150 through these next few days and get back on track for New Years!

    I hope you all get a chance to enjoy your family this holiday season! I know I can't wait to see if William will rip into his presents. He doesn't seem so interested in that..
    I also can't wait to eat my grandma's awesome tasting ham!

    God Bless all of you! Drive safely if you're traveling ^_^
