It's a new dawn, it's a new day and I'm feeling ..............determined ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hi all,

A very happy new year to each and everyone๐Ÿธ๐Ÿบ

Friday is my weigh day, so I've weighed and the reality is I'm up 7Ib !!!, so I've turned the page on last year and starting today at 12.9 and a 1/2 !! ouch.

I could use a recent diagnosis of underactive thyroid but will not, the last 3-4 weeks has been full of social eating/drinking and I've got a few more family days to get through before life is back to normal๐Ÿ˜ƒ

My plan for the next few days is damage limitation!! my cousin returns to NZ on Monday so there's the last rounds of family gathers but I feel it's manageable ๐Ÿค”.

My circuit class starts on Monday and so looking forward to that and tracking all my kms for our round the world trek๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I found this quote and it's helped me over the last few months so would like to share it.

'Just because the past didn't turn out like you wanted it to, doesn't mean your future can't be better than you've ever imagined'

So for all of us, our future is in our hands lets go for it!!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • Hi Flossie,

    Happy New Year to you, and it sounds like you've had a good Christmas, with some gain on the scales, but I'm sure you'll get that off again very soon. I love the quote you shared, it is really good.

    Damage limitation is a good strategy - I tried to use that myself, but of course the Christmas excesses still came, but probably not as bad as it could have been. Christmas was enjoyable, and now we're in 2016. I think this is going to be an excellent year for us all.

    Wishing you a great week ahead, and thanks so much for all the support you give to us within the Monday group weigh-in - I will keep looking out for your Friday weigh-in post, and wish you lots of continued success with your goals.

    Happy New Year!!!

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thanks Lowcal,

    It will be good to just get back to normal, Xmas has been full on and as much as its lovely having visitors and seeing family the fallout (or gain) is not !!!

    I'm sure we will all have a fit and fabulous 2016๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Enjoy what's left of the weekend and catch up tomorrow

    Best wishes for 2016

  • Happy new year Flossie. Don't panic about the 7lb gain. You just have a new starting point now. The underactive thyroid might slow you down, but it can't stop you losing weight altogether, so think slow and steady wins the race. Good luck with damage limitation over the next few days, enjoy your cousin while she's here, and I can tell you're raring to get back to your circuits on Mon. Hope you see a loss or at least a maintain for the 1st week of the year, as you get your routines back in place :)

  • Thanks Ruth,

    I am thinking slow and steady and can't wait to get back to normal day to day. I do feel tired but will still do my usual but more paced, as long as I get results it will be worth it even if it only a 1/2Ib a week.

    Best wishes for 2016

  • Happy 2016 to you too Flossie. 1/2lb a week is an excellent goal. Also pacing is good. Good luck :)

  • Hi Flossie,

    Glad you enjoyed xmas but sorry about the gain - I am in a similar position :(

    I have decided to re-set the meter when I am back to my pre-xmas weight - I'll do a post then :)

    A new year brings new opportunity and in a couple of weeks the xmas gain will be in the past and we can carry on :)

  • Thanks Sueper,

    It's scary how quickly it all goes back on eh !!!

    Do like your plan to re-set, we all need to go with the strategy that works for us๐Ÿ˜ƒ, so catch up soon.

    Best wishes for 2016

  • That song was running round in my head all day yesterday. I was trying to think of a way to use it in a post. You did it! You'll do the weight loss too! You go girl.

  • Thanks vintage-me,

    I was out with dog about 7 am and the song was in my head and I thought it summed up how I was thinking and feeling and so glad you feel the same๐Ÿ˜ƒ. We will get there.

  • I'm loving that quote Flossie, it just sums up everything I believe is true :)

    It's only 7lbs Flossie, wipe the slate clean and start afresh. Enjoy what's left of the weekend with your cousin and come Monday, we'll all be too busy kicking the K's to worry about what may have been and will be looking ahead to what will be - and it's going to be amazing! :)

  • Thanks Moreless,

    So looking forward to us all being amazing!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ and we all have so much to look forward to !

    Life is too short to be looking back at what we can't change and once we are on our trek ??? Well the worlds our lobster !! Lol( well at least if boiled and not served with butter !!)

    Enjoy your day

    Best wishes for 2016
