Report on the festive, shindig, eating event.

First and foremost let me answer a question that was asked about my pics that I posted earlier. I recently bought myself a Canon Digital Rebel XSI as a reward for a weight loss accomplishment. I'm having a blast taking pictures in a variety of different locations, lighting and whatnot. I was quite happy with my fireworks pics from last night.

Well, best laid plans. Well, I can honestly say that I probably would have done worse in previous years. NOt that that is any consolation. But that's all I can say. I'm thinking that I'm going to simply ignore the scales until Tuesday morning and just focus on keeping myself on track with my eating. Oh yeah...and exercise like a banshee!!!! I don't even want to go into what I ate...all though I will say that the 'jello cake' was scrumptious. I have been so hungry for one for a while. It was one of my grandmothers favorites. A jello cake......take a regular cake in a pan, poke holes in it. Prepare a box of jello as directed on the package and pour the unjelled jello over the cake. Put in refridge. Cover with cool whip. SO, I got the bright idea that I could make the diet coke cake. Then going one step further I could use fat free/sugar free jello. ANd of course I used fat free cool whip. I was a bit nervous because there are a few things that the fat free and sugar free stuff just doesn't cut it. BUT this was soooo goood! Yeah, I ate a little bit too much cake.

Sometimes with holidays we overdo it. But you've got the right plan, getting back on track and upping the exercise to help. Great pictures too!

I second your ignoring the scales for a bit and just focusing on the eating and drinking plenty of water to flush your system!

What's done is done and I'm glad you enjoyed the cake. I had forgotten about that wonderful cake, yummm. That's what holidays are for, right?

I agree that ignoring the scales for a couple of days is the smart thing to do. Glad you're back track with the food and exercise now.
