I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was nicely surprised this morning. Even though I ate too much on Turkey Day, it was all relative. A year ago, I could have eaten a lot more before I thought I ate too much. In addition, I so disliked that full feeling that went out for an hour walk in the cold off and on drizzle. I felt much better when I returned.

Mental Note: Don't even think about second until you move around and drink a glass of water.

Another nice thing happened. I earned my gold medal in the Presidential Champions program. I knew this was coming up. I was a little sad since I would have completed all the challenges. When I plugged in the numbers that put me over the top for gold, I was given a surprise. They offered another challenge. This one is the platinum award of which there was no mention anywhere on the website. Anyhow, the gold is earned when you reach 80k points. This took me about 5 months or so. The platinum award is earned when you reach 500k points. I figure this will take me another 26 months to earn. Wow, talk about a long term goal to work towards. I will do it.

Congrats on the gold...I should be hitting my silver this week. That platinum is a good goal to keep striving for, it's a big jump from gold to platinum.

Youdaman!! Now you are ten pounds ahead of me, but this week I will close the gap. You had better think about fasting, or you will be looking at second place...

Way to go on getting the medal and reaching for the next one!
You have come such a long way!
How is your wife coping with the new found energy? *wink*

Why do people stuff themselves silly on Thanksgiving? Is that part of the tradition? Is the feast kinda like Christmas dinner?
