I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday season. Mine was busy but fun, travelling around the families for Christmas, and then making my way to Edinburgh with some friends for New Year. I finally got back home on Tuesday evening, and my new term at med school started first thing on Wednesday morning, so I haven't really had a chance to come up for breath just yet.
I have eaten (and abstained), drank (and been sober), and been merry (and blue), so all in all, a pretty normal Christmas! I am certain I have gained weight since my last weigh in, but haven't actually stood on the scales yet.
However, I don't really want to start 2012 on a downer, finding out I've gained 10lbs, or whatever. As such, I have decided that I will resume my weight loss attempt on Monday morning with a weigh-in. Rather than compare this weight with my last total, I intend to take it as a new starting weight - a new year, a new start, and all that. Obviously it will impossible not to work out just how much weight I regained, but its not something I want to focus on - I'll be acting as though this is my first ever weigh-in, rather than just the most recent!
Once I weigh-in on Monday, I want to be a better member of the blogging community, and take more time to comment on all your posts (as so many of you are kind enough to comment on mine, and it really helps). Let's all have a good year, shall we?
