Howdy

I'm Liz by the way, a newbie. I've been overweight for about 5 years now, really just toying with the idea of weight loss. But now I'm serious. So here I am!

How is everyone this morning?

Hi Liz and welcome.

I got up this morning and ran a little bit longer than I was suppose to and made my hubby late for work. oops.

The kids are tearing up the house right now and it is actually kind of funny, but I think I'd better go and do some damage control.

A good long run is sometimes in order Not that I'd know hahaha I'm a dancer, not a runner. I don't think I've ever been able to run to save my life. Good for you!!

Hey everyone! I've been super busy and haven't checked in a few days but I'm still here, chugging along!

On Tuesday I went to a small dinner party at a private home. I found it one of the more difficult eating experiences I've had since I started my latest (and last) lifestyle change. I'm fine at home because I'm in control and I have my food scale. I'm okay at a restaurant because I'm comfortable asking for substitutions and picking through the food on my plate.

But at someone's house? Eating food that they have specially prepared for us? I find that a lot more difficult.

Rebound - I totally understand about going over to someone's house for dinner. I have to eat before I go or I pig out on all of the snacks they set out before dinner and then I still eat the dinner. Though, one of my good friends is doing ww with her husband and so it's fun to go over to their house. I like hanging out with people where the activity doesn't revolve around food. It helps me out.

Liz, to our group!

Ladies, I hear everyone on the temptation thing! I succumbed to quite a few bad items lately! ACK! Some of them made me feel a bit sick after I ate them...and I paid for it...

I really need to resist the urges!! Has anyone seen my willpower hiding anywhere?? There's a reward for its return!

Rebound - I totally understand where you're coming from...I know my friends are sometimes evil and put things out that are some of my FAV things to eat...most of the time I just try to make sure I sit as far away from the snack/goodie table, as possible!

P.S. I wrote my exam this morning...thank GAWD it's done! I feel okay about it...

We have a Canadian grad student here and where we would say something is a "can of worms" he says it's a "kettle of fish."

Then we laugh at him. Americans are such ba$tards!

HI ALL! Just wanted to check in. I know its been awhile! I am still doing great! Still on plan (with minor setbacks) and still exercising like a demon! I have been running and walking a lot cuz I am in FL for the month on vacation. It has been lots of fun but I think I may be getting a bit too much sun!

How is everyone????

Anyway, just checking in....I may not be able to be back until I get back from FL. We are headin home a week from tomorrow!
