The Wednesday Weigh

Thank you lovely ladies for all your wonderful comments and support. It warms my heart to know that you care even if we are 100s of miles apart.

I am holding at 260 which is 3 lbs. up from my low of 257. Someone reminded me the other day that it is possible to gain 10-15 lbs. during a holiday season so I am okay with my 3 lbs. I have had some digestive issues due to stress but it seems to be settling down now.

Dave graduates from his program today. He has been there for 6 months which is hard to believe. After a long talk and lots of tears, I have agreed to let him come and stay with me for a while. Big Sigh... He really does not have anywhere to go and I just don't have it in me to kick him to the curb on the day before Christmas Eve. I know that once he does stay it will be harder but I just couldn't severe ties right now. He will be getting some money from the sale of his mom's house in a few months so he will be able to get a place then. At least I will know in my heart of hearts that I did everything to make the relationship work.

We will be having our Christmas luncheon today at Maggiano's at Santana Row. It is yummy food if you have never been there. We will do an ornament exchange which is always a blast and we will be done around 2:00 p.m. for the day.

I am supposed to get DSL by 8:00 p.m. today. I miss blogging from home! I seem to keep on track better when I blog daily. Hopefully it will go smoothly. I think that is about it for now. It is going to be an interesting day for sure. Until next time..


  1. I'm guessing that Dave is your ex? I hope that having him stay works out. Don't let the stress make you go off track.

    Keep blogging. The people out there really do care.

  2. Remember to feed yourself the good stuff over the holidays- weight gain doesn't have to be inevitable over the festive period!

    Hugs over the Dave issue etc.

  3. I'm sure that everything will turn out for the best, it always does. Don't worry about hurrying to send that DVD, I can wait. :) Take care of yourself.

  4. Stay strong and keep yourself in mind still. Giving a hand up isn't the same as a piggie-back ride.

    :) can knock that off no problem! Enjoy your luncheon!

  5. Hope it all works out for the best with Dave-Have a Merry Christmas Katie.

  6. Hi Katie. I'm worried about you feeling you have to let Dave stay, esp as your side bar says you are sad today. I'm not sure that trying to get a relationship to work if you're just not feeling it is the right thing to do.

    I hope your boundaries are strong enough to cope with having him stay with you, and that things stay on a positive track over the festive period for you both.

  7. I am keeping you in my prayers. I dont know the details about Dave, but I want what is best for you.
    Have a Merry Christmas!

  8. I agree with Shelley! You have a big heart! Any weight you may gain over the holidays, I know you will knock it right back off!

    Also, if you will email me at with your address and contact information I will send you the prize you won from my giveaway! Congratulations!

  9. Hope all is well and that you are having a good Holiday season, all things considered. Stay strong, and as long as you don't let those 3 pounds get away from you, you'll be fine. You're not the only one with a slight weight gain due to all this holiday food. I'm with you there. Nothing to do but get back on track right?:-)

  10. You are maintaining good self discipline for these food-laden holidays, I'm proud of your new atitude.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
