HelloNurse - Wow, awesome woosh! Good for you
I can relate to your later post, I am 189.4 today - My goal of 185 by my bday was probably too ambitious. But wow, I'm so glad to be looking at 180s instead of 260s. I think you are right about needing a few extra calories to keep from binging. After all, if this is going to stick, we have to eat an amount that will be ok for us long term. Too little is probably setting ourselves up for failure.
TooWicky - It's great that you are so conscious of how your self talk affects the kids. I wish I'd figured it out sooner - better late than never though right?!
Paulitens - YAY, congrats on your resolve during your road trip. Great job!! Hope you feel better soon.
lotsakids - Loose pants = good!! I had the same type of weekend. Went from 187.4 to 292 on Monday. Drank a ton of water yesterday and I'm back to 189.4 today. Not changing the ticker dammit cause I saw 187 and I will see it again LOL.
kabaker - you'll be there soon
