slow going

So... here it is.  I'm not particularly losing weight at the moment. ;)  It's the holidays, and frankly, doing the gluten free thing over Thanksgiving and Hanukkah meant that I missed out on a lot of fun (and feasts).  So I'm not beating myself up about enjoying the rest of the month.  I even went and baked a crapload of cookies with some other new moms on Saturday - and though I sent a bunch with my husband to work today, we're still enjoying some here at home.

I had hoped to reach a small milestone by the end of the year, but it's not bloody likely.  I'm down still that same five pounds since I "restarted" last month, and I'm okay with that.  I'm doing a lot of traveling over the next month, so I know that will be a weighty challenge.  I still have my ambitious goal of being back to my pre-baby weight by my son's second birthday - four months from now.  It's about 20 pounds from where I am now.  I should be able to do it, but I think it's going to be closer to "20 pounds in 3 months" instead of "20 pounds in 4 months" - hopefully I can maintain this current weight through the holidays and travels, and then refocus and get back on the diet train. ;)
