The wonderful thing about SLD is that you don't have to actually restrict yourself.  There has never been a point during the last 6 months where I felt like I was being restricted in what I could eat.  I have been eating healthier, for sure, but that's a side effect of the AS for me, not because I'm trying to avoid "bad" foods.  And there are plenty of times when I eat the same old crap I always used to eat, just much much much less of it! -- goblyn

Ani, like the others said - a little bit of vanity doesn't hurt.  It's also the novelty of our changing shapes.  I keep looking at my brand new body in mirrors and shop windows, and, dare I say it, admiring myself (hows that for vain!!!!).  And today my boyfriend told me my figure had become "girlish"  :oops:.

Don't be embarrassed to be proud of yourself.  You've done really well on SLD!  If your BF is noticing you, that's a good thing!  Keep up the good work and reward yourself with something really slinky, unless that's not your style.   :D

I can't wait to be vain again, I'll say it.  I miss liking what I saw in shop windows.  I look now and think, oh dear, how DID I let this happen.  It's fun to like what you see - and not fun to not like it.  So you enjoy it, every minute of it - you've worked hard for it and you deserve it!

Aaaand another pound down. I like this.

Having recently outed myself as the shallowest poster here, I might as well follow through and natter on about clothes. I wasn't going to get any interim clothes till after Christmas, but I've reached a crisis point -- my pants simply weren't staying up. So this weekend I picked up a couple more pairs. They're from Old Navy, nothing fancy, but they should tide me through for a couple of months, I hope.

I've already started putting together a Goodwill pile.

Plus (hooray new job!) for the first time in ages I've been invited to a party for which I'll need a fabulous dress. Also for the first time in ages, the prospect of procuring one actually seems like fun rather than a tiresome ordeal.

Oooh Ani, if looking for health, self-esteem and a good self-image is being shallow then I am too! And though I had promised myself I'd only buy new clothes when I dropped a size, my "fatter" pants got really unsightly and so I bought a pair of bermudas!... i love bermudas, look very sexy with pumps. (how's that for shallow?) AND you've got to tell us all about your new dress for the party!... Full report expected ASAP if you please!  8)

WTG Ani. Great job. I want to hear all about this party dress. Hope you find one that is perfect for you instead of having to settle for something just because nothing else fits. I hate that. You will be GORGEOUS!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!

That's great news, having to buy some new things, and a new party dress - woo hoo!  Great shoes to match?  All for a good cause, of course.  Have FUN!!!

Thanksgiving with relatives came and went. Gustatory anomalies included: pancakes and bacon for breakfast (I'd pretty much forgotten that people do that); Bloody Marys (Maries?) to accompany food prep; dinner with the standard Thanksgiving trimmings. Didn't really worry about anything; had exactly what I wanted, which was a little of everything, including wine, an extra spoonful of stuffing, and a sliver each of pumpkin and apple pie.

Holding steady at 155.

Lately I've been hanging in and trying to be patient. I don't weigh myself often enough to have really solid numbers, but I think I've been stuck for the last three weeks. This last week in particular I've been eating more than usual, too, averaging closer to 1500 than 1300 calories. The balance is good, I'm getting plenty of protein and fresh vegetables, but for some reason I'm just hungrier and my weight doesn't seem to have changed.

Last night I went out with friends and ended up having beer and samosas. Not catastrophic quantities of either, but I've had a few regrets today.

I wish I could cut my oil back down to 2T, but I suspect that would rev up my appetite and I can't really afford that.

Ani,

Please persevere!  The Christmas period is awful for weightloss, since we're always out and about socialising.

If you have a look over the forums, you'll see that everyone is struggling at the moment.  :)

I'm also having struggles. I don't feel I am eating any more, but I believe I am picking a little more. Different types of foods than the norm. All the baked goodies coming into work etc. I do realize I am only eating maybe 1 cookie with my coffee instead of 4 or 5. That is a big plus for me. LOL!!! I keep wondering if I should up my oil to 3-4tbsp daily instead of 2, but I may just tough out the holidays and go from there.

Hang in there everyone, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

I'm back from the festivities, having stumbled off the plane last night. Among my Christmas presents was an end to my month-long plateau. Just a pound down, but it can't be flight dehydration because my period is about to start. That's a bit of a surprise. I enjoyed myself and had reasonable amounts of everything I wanted. I probably drank more wine in the last week than in the preceding six months, but I also drank vats of water.

You know, I really love roast turkey leftovers -- with a dry Indian pickle, with olives, or with just about anything pungent and chewy. I had a direct flight; if I hadn't had to cross a border to get home I'd have liked to take some back with me. I also wish I could have brought back some bagels. Montreal bagels aren't like anything else. They're chewy, a little sweet, and small; even an SLDer can have one at breakfast without feeling overwhelmed. I miss them.

CONGRATS on the 1 lb down. I didn't lose over the holidays, but didn't gain either. I have the same problem though. It is TTOM. I haven't been in here for a while but it looks like I'm not the only one. I checked around and their are hardly any posts at all in the places I was. I am staying faithful to SLD and haven't missed even 1 day so I am hoping something will happen soon.

 We had wonderful holidays here. Hope you all had the same. HAPPY NEW YEAR  to all!!!!!!
