Did I Win or Lose????

So who starts a diet at Christmas time.  Well…… I did. My reasoning may be flawed but here it is.  If I can lose a few pounds during Christmas, nothing can stop me.  For the most part the plan worked.  I dusted off the South Beach Diet Plan, started hitting the 24 hour fitness by my house, and instantly started to drop pounds.  I was hoping to drop 6 or 7 pounds in the two weeks leading up to the Holiday and guess what, I did.  Second step was to hold even during Christmas and then to resume with the diet and exercise.  In the midst of being sucessful I ran into the one thing that could stop me.  I came down with a killer cold.  The kind that wipes you out, shuts you down, and that it takes every ounce of energy to focus on getting through the day.  Gone was the exercising, gone was the eating plan and cooking ahead, gone was will power. The only thing on my mind was survival.  I have yet to jump back on the scale.  I actually am scared to do so, thinking that discouragement might stop me from trying again.  However, tomorrow morning you will see me at 24 hour back in the routine and back on track.  Next goal – to look my best as I head to Vegas with my wife and friends.  End of January.  Would be nice to be at 215 by then.  I’ll keep you posted.
