You are all welcome to join us! I hope you all have great success! I weigh in every monday morning and then post my weight loss.I am simply keeping a food diary and counting calories! So far I have not been hungry and have kept it under 1,000 on most days. I am not depriving myself of anything but it is amazing what you will turn down when you know how many calories is in it!! My goal is 80lbs in 1 year and I have about 70 left to go!! Good luck and stay commited to yourself if you really want results!

I haven't been on that cabbage soup diet...it did me in with the worst gas in my belly ever...lol...not a good choice when stress is making stomach problems right now. so my body decided to get sick and haven't been eating much, mainly fluids. So I lost some weight and oh my, just really need to get toned up now! so exercise is on my plate for this weekend. And no, I still really need to loose more weight, but this is on hold for now.

I gotta kick out of Laura Ann's "King Sized Blessing from God"!!!

Today I have had some diet coke and lasix--hahahahaaaaha! I was too tired to eat dinner last night. I swear, I don't think I take in more than 5000 calories a week and look at me, I'm in PERFECT shape (round is a shape, after all...)

I'm irritated...

This is day 3 of staying on a food plan. I'm not counting calories, I am just eating lots of vegetables and not eating sweets. Today I was especially proud because we had lunch from Quizno's at work. Anytime there is anything unusual to eat, even if it is just a sandwich from Quizno's, I interpret that as a unique occasion for me to eat the sandwich, and the chocolate chip cookie, and the Cheetoh's. Then, I figure that I ruined my calorie quota for the day, so I might as well have fried chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner. My head works like that, unfortunately. Today, however, I just ate the sandwich and a diet Coke. Factor in that my son didn't come home last night and I have no idea if he's in jail, dead, went to work, or what. I love my son dearly (and, he has written some AWESOME music), but I just can't tie myself in knots over his issues anymore. If he got picked up for PI, it won't be the first time. If he's dead, I will miss him forever, but I'm not goin' with him..... is that sick to think like that?

No. Your life goes on no matter what. It's a good thing that it's something you've come to terms with! I hope your son is alright.

Love,

Sounds like you are off to a good start laura ann, Me personally starting to feel pretty down again fear I might fall off the wagon tonight. Though I do like looking in the mirrir with that 10lbs gone!! Maybe I will just do that instead of eating. Keep your fingers crossed!!

LauraAnn: That's the attitude you must have to get thru when a child is doin those kinds of things. I had to have the same attitude w/ my son. Hard, but do'able.

Ren'ai: I take Lasix and it doesn't do a thing for me. I don't know what shape you would call me. I don't want to say Homer Simpson, but I think that is as close as I can get. Just NOT that big. lol

Lost: It's ok to fall off the wagon. Only gives you a few ouches and bruises as long as you jump back on. Just have to hang on tighter next time.

Anybody got any rope and we can tie Lost onto the wagon! teehee

Have a great weekend gals!

Just tie my big ass to the wagon and drag me already... Maybe we could "sand" me into some other shape besides round!

Not that I'm any expert or anything, but I've always heard that when you are having a bad craving, it's best to satisfy it REASONABLY because otherwise you are likely to binge...so I say eat 3 chocolate kisses and call it good!

Love you all,

Ren'ai

Binge sweet chocolates.....the urge is sooooooo great!

They say if you feel hungry, first drink a glass of water, you may just be needing water, or starting to get dehydrated. If you get thirsty, you already are beginning to dehydrate.

Seems as that part of the brain is not as well developed, so you crave food before liquids. Proven fact.

So now, I bet, you are going to get something to drink first, right?

Oh, I see.... that was something Like Hershey's chocolate milk LOL or Ovaltine LOL.......(enjoy your Hershey kisses)

3 is better than 6. Don't be so hard on yourself. I could eat a third of a box of Russell Stover chocolate truffles if someone doesn't put a muzzle on me!

(Then I wonder why I'm not a size 7...Ha!)

Love,

Ren'ai

I must be seriously addicted, because I couldn't go to sleep and got up to log on and see what was on everyone's mind. Also, I have an awful head cold and have already slept alot. Today I found the supply room unlocked at school so I "helped myself" to ten boxes of colored markers for the students in my very urban school district. My students are immigrants and their hard-working parents often don't have money for the little things we take for granted. I know it was a trivial thing, but I felt like a criminal stuffing boxes of markers down inside my purse while checking that no one was walking down the hall. It seems to me that I simply redirected the markers to students in my classroom before someone else could redirect the markers to THEIR students. Isn't the world a funny, funny place when middle aged teachers feel like they are making a jewel heist to get some markers for a classroom????? Finally, the pointesettias I bought at Christmas are still red and blooming profusely. My appreciation for this $10.00 pot of flowers from Wal-Mart is way out of proportion. They are still BEAUTIFUL. I have NEVER been able to keep pointsettias after Christmas. Maybe this is a trend that signals that my life is getting BETTER!!!!

I weighed in this morning and lost 3.5 pounds. Yes! Now, I'm trying to keep it going. Number 2 son came home unexpectedly yesterday from his Navy base. Great visit, but now he has to be at the airport across town this afternoon and I have to take off work early and deliver him there. Also, students at school are taking a major accountability test tomorrow. Teachers and principals in our state will lose jobs over how nine-year- olds perform on this test tomorrow. Stress.
Principal probably is not pleased that I am taking off an hour an a half early the day before the test, but getting back to the ship takes precedence. I DON'T want to get unhinged and start stuffing my face during this stressful period. We are marking off the HOURS in my classroom until we no longer have to prepare intensively and life can get "back to normal". I just need to hang on to my goal of not using food like a drug for about 28 hours and then the pressure will be off!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, appaerntly my visit to this thread is Longgggg overdue.
I had been doing well on my dieting, etc.. (so i thought) but my husband and i were gettingready to go out to dinner last night at our friends new restaurant... and NOTHING fit.. Like not even my"fat clothes" to my horror. I just burst into tears. I DID NOT just put on my PJ's and decline leaving the house with this ass, and thunderous thighs, but i wanted too. I managed t oput on something I coudl button, and only ate HAF of what ws on the palte (which was DELICIOUS!!!!)
Now Im goingto commit to exercise everyday... I HAVE too. My weight has been up and down more than Oprah's, adn I wasnt perpared to not fitr in My "fat clothes." I know part of it is being on the insulin pump.. "They " said weight gain is common, And I was emaciated prio to being on the pump From Ketoacidosis.. But My wanting to be that sick again to lose this FAT is so unhealthy, and I feel my brain wishing these things.
My brain instantly was racing all over the place, to the point i was exhausted.. I fell into the Vortex (my couch) today, an slept most of the day,(after i did dishes, and changed litter box, took out garbage.) iwas soooo tired, and figured someone would wake me when i'm a size 6
But the phone rang, it was my mom, and I still have a tummy that is resting on my lap, and taunting me.
The thigh spread I see whne I sit is gross.apparently I Ballooned from a size 4 (tooooo thin, I know) up to a size 13.I am terrified, and not feeling very good, but I'll re read some of your posts, adn find inspiration..... Thank you all for being here.me, and My F.A are grateful.
