Sorry, I missed posting last week, but time was not on my side. I would like to thank everyone who comments on my blog. I do read them all and they are helpful to me. I have always intended to reply to all the comments and make comments on their blogs. I will try to do better. Some of the comments are so nice and thoughtful. Some sound like they are talking about someone much better than me. I appreciate all that everyone says.

The last month was up and down concerning weight. I broke even which isn't too bad. Part of the issue was the interuptions to my eating habits. That was a good thing because it's just life, and I need to learn to deal with those things in a healthy way. I didn't do great, but I didn't do terrible either. I kept up with my exercising for the most part, at least as far as running and cross country skiing. The weight training did get a little messed up when we went to my in-laws.

Originally, I intended to post on my blog 2-3 times a week. I intended to journal about more than just my stats, but lately that seem like all that I have time for. Too bad I can't blog while I am exercising. That seems to be when I get all my blogging ideas. By the time, I get to the computer, I don't have the time to flesh out my thoughts.

Here are my two New Year's Resolutions (and I usually avoid making these resolutions at all costs):

1) To be more responsive to those who comment on my blog.

2) To blog 2-3 times a week.

Some topics I would like to address are:

I have been here before and failed, body image, my emotional state, those annoying comments, what is an athlete?, I am NOT Super-weight-loss-man, nature's Alli.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic New Year.

To have broken even over Feastmas is a remarkable achievement.

I've noticed a few weight-loss bloggers this year who were coming up to their first Christmas, and all are feeling they could have done better.

But, to my mind, and this has been my 3rd since I began, to get through with anything less than an 8-10lb gain is an achievement.

Christmas is unique in the calander and very few people can get through it unscathed - especially those for whom large amounts of tasty food thrust under their noses is a problem.

You have to build it into the year and remember the old saying that it's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year that counts so much as what you eat between New Year and Christmas

Christmas and New Years was tough for me. I got back on the wagon though with an Easter Challenge of sorts. I am hoping that it will kick my ass a little bit.

Christine - You have it in you. I know you can succeed on your Easter challenge.
