Weigh-in 11/1

Previous Weight: 155.6
Current Weight: 155.8
Change: +0.2

I refuse to be bummed by the fact that I essentially maintained this week. Part of the process. The overall picture is good and my measurements are showing positive changes.  I also recognize that I am retaining fluid today (my ring is tight this morning, #1 clue).  Last night's dinner didn't help anything.  We stopped and picked up a family size nugget meal from Chicken Barn and ate dinner with my in-laws.  You can't always have a perfect meal or a healthy one either.  I ate chicken and a small amount of coleslaw and skipped the biscuits and spuds.  I feel pretty good about my choices. 
Obviously, today we have two big bowls of junk sitting around after trick or treating last night.  I'll probably stick it up in the cupboard later.  While I'm not craving candy or even desiring to eat it, staring at it every time I walk through the kitchen is not the best idea either.  Out of sight, out of mind usually works better for me.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!  I'll leave you with a pic of my little monkeys....

  What's your plan for dealing with the Halloween candy??

I like your positive attitude. I always get so discouraged if I even maintain my weight. It really is normal though. A lot of times I stay the same weight for a week or two and then drop quite a bit. It's also a hard season for losing any weight :(

The "maintain then drop" has been a trend for me too in the past, so I stopped getting discouraged. I am also really intent on making this not all about the number. I like having the information, but I am not defined by some stupid little number anymore lol.
I am really trying to get through the next few months without gaining and hopefully losing. I don't want my New Years resolution to be "Lose the Holiday Weight" again. :)
