    Yeay on the walking to you as well Zoe, it is so wonderful! I am just like you though, I don't always want to go, but it is so much easier to stop than it is to start again, so I keep plugging away. It is worth it!

    Day number 4 of walking!!! Again, didn't want to - I was going to go right after an appt. (to avoid the "I'm home and I can't get up" syndrome, but I had to come home and powder my nose ...

    So I promised myself that as SOON as possible after that I'd get into my shorts and GO - do not pass go, etc etc. It was GORGEOUS out! I took along a 5 lb wt to do a little upper body stuff - who cared who saw me - so anyway - I am also eating pretty smart, TY guys for your inspiration - I pray I can continue! (and speaking of rain - I am always "concerned" that it is too rainy, sunny, cloudy, hot, cold, windy, humid, early, late; I'm too busy, sick, tired, full (THAT is a good one, HA HA!) etc etc...

    Well have a good one everybody - nice to see you even if you only "check in" and say hi!

    xo

    Sorry, don't have time to read today. I'm at that point where I feel incredibly lousy and un-energetic, I'm a mush-brain, and I look like heck.

    Everyone who diets goes through this stage.

    Adjust, Body, Adjust already!!! I have work to do!!!

    LOL Zoe - I tried to use the "too full" one on my friend last night, but he didn't buy it, good thing too because I needed to work off what I ate, hehe. Just remember, you are already doing this, so you can keep it up!

    Angie, I know the feeling, it will pass, just keep it up!

    Have a happy, healthy day everybody!

    Ha ha!

    It's good that you know this tho -

    My dangerous time is when people start to notice that I look better Then I start sabotaging myself -

    Right now you need to give yourself a (non-food) reward. Something that feels good, or a present, or maybe a weekend away/day trip - something that says - GOOD JOB Angie! Cuz all the + feedback in the world from us won't mean diddly if you don't give it to yourself!

    I'm on a campaign. DH has applied for a job and they seem to want him, but are waiting for the new office director to get oriented. He is the one who will have the final selection as to who gets hired. The waiting is getting to be a bit much. SO - please focus all your prayers, brain power, crossed fingers and toes and what ever other whammy you can conjure up towards this individual so we can figure out if we are moving or not!!!!!! At this point it almost doesn't matter (though it would be GREAT for DH's career if he gets this job). The waiting has been going on for about 5 weeks and it's making me testy. Do I need to prep my house to sell it or not? :angryfire
    On a brighter note, I'm eating well, have been crunching my way along daily. Tuesday evenings aren't very good yet. It's the night I have an online chat for school, and I haven't gotten in the habit of having something ready to eat for dinner before the chat. Tired, hungry, and in a rush we order pizza, 3 weeks running now. Can start back to Curves tomorrow (was on a 2 week restriction after my lil procedure). I have been walking though, which was allowed.
    Hope y'all are well!!!! :wink2:

    HOW FRUSTRATING it is to wait! praying for a breakthrough! And congrats for holding it together

    How bout a nice whole grain (I like 9 grain with seeds) bread with lettuce, tomato, lowfat cheese and I have a slice of low salt ham - or turkey - whatever you fancy - If the lettuce is already washed and in the fridge it is easy - and your fam can order the pizza.

    But I think it's ok to have lasagna now and then

    Edit: Ooops I meant to say "ok to have pizza" but I guess I had a freudian slip

    Zoe - I am bad about self-sabatoge with positive comments as well. It's like, oh goodie, I'm getting somewhere, now I can do what I want. I have to be really careful with that too.

    Muffie, congrats on the -2, WooHoo!!! You go Muffster!

    Blue, positive vibes sent your way. Hopefully the stress of not knowing will be over soon, that is so hard! Let us know!

    LOL - pizza, lasagna, whatever, they both sound yummy - thank goodness I live in the middle of nowhere :chuckle:

    Hi Tweety - still keeping it up at the gym?

    Well, I have been sticking with the walking and am really proud of myself for having not cheated on that, I'm prone to do so, so yeay! I ate good yesterday, I managed to avoid the urge to get a cheeseburger at a drive-through near the college last night and instead ordered a salad - yeay! Been good today so far too, so WooHoo!!! Now to manage to get through the holiday weekend being good . . . I think I can and I'm in that mindset, so it should be good!

    Hello to everyone and anyone I may have missed!!!

    Hope y'all have a happy, healthy Memorial Day Weekend!
