Being Accountable


Well, last time I blogged here, I had lost 12 pounds... and was heading for the holiday season.

Now the holiday season is WELL underway, and I have NOT gained a single pound back!!! I haven't LOST any more either, but just not gaining any back has been a real feat!!

I'm certain that after the holidays I can get back on the losing track!! = ) The girls at work are talking about an office version of 'The Biggest Loser'.... that should be real encouragement.

I didn't do ANY baking this year, but my mom & I did make some tamales, and my mother-in-law brought me some of her famous Guatemalan tamales.... Oooooh, I LOVE them!!!

Last night for dinner, I made some chicken and veggie soup, the weather was so cold and that's just what sounded good... it was.

Anyway, just wanted to check in while I'm STILL at a loss.... because the next few days might be different.... LOL!!!

May you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! May you enjoy the love of those closest to you throughout the season!! And may you enjoy God's richest blessings in 2011!!!


  1. Staving off gain during the holiday season IS noteworthy... but man, I would love to get my hands on a tamale or two!! Take care and happy New Year!!

  2. Those tamales sound delicious! good for you for maintaining your weight loss Joann! I know you'll continue to do great in 2011!

    Merry Christmas to you and Chris!


  3. Happy Holidays ... and here's to a great New Year, too!

  4. Glad to hear you have done so well. The holidays make diets almost impossible. One of my friends says it is all in the portions you have to eat not in what. I hope your Christmas is a blessed one and a Happy New Year to you too.

  5. I think for most it is harder to maintain than anything else, so you are doing great...especially for this time of year.

  6. Hi Joann, You are allowed a wee bitty extra's over Christmas !! just a wee bit mind you...put on to much and you will get discouraged again LOL
    Have a truly wonderful Christmas and evry blessing to you and all those you love,
    Love Sybil x

  7. Keep it going Joann, when it gets tough, that's when you have to shine. I hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas and joyous new year...


  8. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Joann !


  9. I've never had Guatemalan Tamales... So I guess I'll have to just enjoy the tamales that my sister made for me... Oh man are they GOOOOOOD!!! Merry Christmas Joann! Hope you and your son can keep warm... It's 17 degrees here. Break out the BBQ grill and toss that frisbee around!!! lol...

    God Bless you and yours,

  10. Way to go Joann! I got weighed at the doctor's office the other day..haven't lost any but also haven't gained any. They say that most people gain 12 pounds between Thanksgiving & New Years. Hope you're having a good day. Hugs...Linda

  11. Excellent, and don't worry about any more until Monday the 3rd. Happy Holidays and Birthday :o)


Thanks for stopping by!!
