Schenectady - so sorry you had a bad day. But you have the right attitude - dust yourself off and get right back at it. There is a saying that goes something like "if you fall partway down the stairs you don't pick yourself up and throw yourself the rest of the way down." You stumbled and picked yourself up. You should be very proud of yourself for getting right back on track.

Been thinking of you Amber. I know it hurts. You should be proud of yourself for all you've accomplished and staying OP through this hard time. Hang in there and hope you feel better.

I saw an article on the news last night that being obese puts you at risk for 5 different cancers......ovarian being one of those. How did I let myself get here?
Hang in there Rubygirl - IP works (just ask me!). You've gone through the worst of it, any time you feel like eating off plan just remember how miserable you were for the first few days - do you really want to go through that again?
