At long last, blog post!

Well, Happy New Year, everyone! It’s great to be back here at 50by60.com! So, how was your holiday season? Mine was absolutely delicious…

which is why I was a little nervous about this, the first weigh-in of 2019! But not to worry – I’m happy (and relieved) to report my weight as of this morning is:

181.2

That’s right, I actually managed to get through the biggest eating season of the year (aka the Celebration of the Birth of Our Lord) without gaining weight!!!

Oh, OK! Full disclosure — I DID gain a *little* bit, during December. Even though I didn’t report it here, I continued weighing myself every day. And it’s true, at one point I was up to almost 185, which during December became my “go over this and no more cookies” border wall!

Just a gentle reminder from Spidey

Oh yeah, sorry ’bout that — almost broke my own rule, nyuk nyuk! Anyway, the nice thing about the daily weigh-ins is that they kept me aware of how all those delectable goodies were affecting me — and inspired me to at least *try* to keep things under control.

And I did! And you can, too! Did YOU enjoy a nice, sugar-filled December? Not to worry — it’s January now, and Christmas is over and done.

Oh yeah, I forgot! OK, if you’re an Old Calendar 50by60 reader, just take all the advice I’m giving you today and transfer it to 12 days from today!

As for the rest of you, let’s go! I think 2019 is going to be a great year, and I’m looking forward to telling you all the exciting things I’m planning to get and stay in better shape!

Happy New Year/Merry Christmas/see ya Friday!!

 

Surprise! Just poppin’ in to say Merry Christmas!

Yeah, yeah, I know, I’m on a blogging break and all that.

Still, if former Pres. Obama can pop in to say hi, I guess I can, too!

I’m enjoying my little break, and hope you’re all keeping snug as the proverbial bugs in your rugs, keeping warm, sipping cocoa and enjoying life.

Listen — we’ll get back to the diet and exercise struggle soon enough. This is a time to relax and enjoy yourself. Go ahead, have some chocolate. We’ll work it off, together, in January.

Merry Christmas to all my loyal readers! See you again on Monday, January 7, 2019 (aka Orthodox Christmas, for my non-Western readers)!
