Happy New Year!

Wow! Where did the holidays go? I apologize for my lack of posting over the past busy weeks. I hope you were all surrounded by family, friends, and fun times. I had my fill of all of that as well as more food than one can imagine. I count myself lucky that I have stayed within 2 pounds of my LIW with the exception of this morning when I woke up and discovered that I was 4 lbs over!!! Yikes. Needless to say, I did my steak day and we'll see what tomorrow brings. Throughout the holidays, I've had to do about 4 steak days...but they always bring me back under control so I'm grateful for it!

If you are like me, you look forward to the New Year as a time to take stock and set goals. In the past, this time always seemed a little frustrating since I knew my resolution would include some kind of weight loss plan and that I would most likely fail at the attempted plan before spring. This year is different! Looking back over my success of the past year, I can't help but be excited about the idea that I WILL meet my next goal. I begin Round 3 in the coming week and I am confident that I will meet the goal I set last March, of losing 100 pounds total since starting the HCG diet. Is that crazy or what?

After I reach that goal, my big resolution for 2010 is to run a 5K.  I've never been much of a runner, but I have friends who have inspired me and I want to become a more active person and my new lighter weight is no longer an excuse to sit home. My husband and daughter both trained in the past for a 5K with the "Couch Potato to 5K" program so I know it is doable. I have no doubt that it will be difficult, but I'm excited for this new phase in life.

For this HCG go-round, my husband and daughter will be joining me. It will be great to have this camaraderie...they've always been supportive, but now we can help each other through.

I look forward to blogging in 2010. I hope you will all find success with your HCG adventures. I would love to hear your New Years' Resolutions. Leave me a comment and share your motivation. Good luck and Happy New Year!

I am trying to find the motivation to start again too, it's hard this time. I think part of the problem is the Winter blahs.
