i went up, according to my home scale, to 155.5. One fellow Wellspherer mentioned that it could be water retention, which it could very well be. But it's also in part, at least, to the few cookies from the batch my dear ol' coworkers gave me for Christmas. So good.
I'm not concerned. It's really not a reason to get down, especially not this time of year. Right now, I'm focusing more on how I'm feeling, more than what I look like. If my habits lead to tummy troubles and headaches, then it's really time to cut back on the sweets.
I imagine I'll see some major improvement after the New Year.
