I knew it was too good to last.  My weekend 'o' holiday parties (four to be exact), regardless of how good I was compared to other years, has finally caught up with me.  After a new low of 231.4 last week, the scale this morning showed 234.  I'll admit a small part of me thought that maybe, just *maybe*, somehow I'd get through this weekend with no gain, and even perhaps a loss.  HA!  No such luck.

I'm not terribly upset about the bounce because I know that I did well this weekend, even though I was faced with literally hundreds of unhealthy food and drink choices.  I indulged in a small amount of holiday treats and even a cocktail or two.  So while the bounce on the scale is an annoyance, it is not devastating.  In fact, I'm more motivated than ever to quickly get back down to 231.  The 220s are just around the corner and I am looking forward to seeing them for the first time in over nine years!!
