Damiilya, glad you're back on track! Don't worry, just start over and keep trying. Yeah, I think 1000 calories is too little. I've upped the calories for a few weeks and also upped the exercise to balance out

Update on me: I'm not being as restrictive on my diet because I've got a lot going on. My dissertation defense has been scheduled and I'm trying really hard to prepare for it. Still sad and missing the estranged husband because I just don't understand why he did what he did to me, but, if he doesn't care enough to try to fix things or talk to me, then I can't make him do it, right? I guess he's made his choices. Still worried about my family and missing them, too, but I just have to accept that their life is theirs and I'm just kind of peripheral to it. I'm pretty depressed these days because I feel like I've lost my connections to everyone I care about and that's lonely. Even if I have friends to visit and work to do and parties to attend and writing deadlines, it isn't the same.... But, I'm not drowning my sorrows in cookies or ice cream. I'm going for a walk every day and twice a week, I run/walk 4 miles. I'm eating more, sleeping less, drinking more caffeine and taking diet pills. I've decided that trying to lose weight while also trying to get through this degree is just not going to happen. I'm between 170-174 right now; every day I'm getting a different reading, but I'm glad it's in the lower 170s, at least. If I just try to be a little bit more careful, then after I get through this defense (fingers crossed), I will increase my exercise more. Maybe 4 miles 4 times a week and that might bring me closer to mini-goal A,
11/10 (194). 6/11 (188). 7/11 (178). 11/11 (165). 1/12 (174). 3/12 (175). 4/12 (172). 5/12 (178). Now: 7/14 I'm 188.

Mini-Goal 1: (-10 pounds = 178) --
Mini Goal 2: (-20 pounds = 168) --
Goal Weight: (-23 pounds = 165) --
Eventual Goal Weight: 150 -- someday
