Matt, where have you been?

Well I have been busy y'all.

Let me just tell you that my first Holiday season on plan has been a disaster.  I am gaining a bit here and there and have already committed to getting going at the first of the year.  You don't have to tell me that I should not wait.  I know, but honestly my mind is so cluttered right now that it is difficult to have the focus that is requires to lose weight.  So why have I lost focus?  Well the Holidays for one, and some personal issues that I prefer not to get into.

The thing is that I have found that when you con concentrate on your weight loss goals and you are seldom distracted it is a much easier path to follow.  Obviously the path becomes rocky and difficult to stay on when your distracted.  I wonder if any of you have found this to be true.

I am trying at this point to be upbeat about my progress but it is difficult.  My stall is now well over 3 months and I am making excuses.  Hopefully I can get the steadfast resolve back in 2009. 

So what else has been going on with me.  Well I can tell you one of the "distractions" has made me very happy.  I am an engaged man now.  I hear the collective sigh of all the ladies out there.  This one got away from you.  You will be happy to know that Carrie and I are extremely happy together and I am engaged to my best friend.  So buck up ladies.  This I can tell you.  There are others like me out there. :-)

Happy Wednesday to all and to all a good night!

I've been reading your blog for about 3 months now, and this is my first post. I just wanted to say Congratulations on your engagement!! And as a side note, as a single 38 year-old (39 on Sunday) female, the good ones are VERY few and far between. Good Luck to you both!!

Congrats!!
You said before, wait till the holidays are over. Get back on track after the holidays.

Nancy said...

Awww, that's a very sweet post. Congrats!

As for your struggles this holiday season, just remember that Christmas doesn't have to be all about the food (as I've always thought)... It's about friends and family (or future-family, hehe).

I'm going to try and employ this thinking over this holiday season and see if it helps keep me on OP as well.

Good luck and happy holidays.

PS... Try to keep blogging ;)

You can do it. Your doing great. Even if you stalled for a year, if you did not gain in that year, you would be ahead of most people. You would be ahead of your oldself who probably gained every year.

Great job. I go to WW also. I was the only guy for a while, but now there are more. I lost 130 lbs on it.
