beautifully said Vixsin!!

scale was happy with my effort again yesterday. i like this 'no thought' meal plan right now... one less thing on my mind! just pushed myself at the gym and might have overdone it a bit as my arms are shaking pretty good right now

hoping to break back into 170's very soon... i am already feeling less bloated, my clothes fit better and i feel better about myself. positive attitude...visualize the finish... where the mind goes, the body is sure to follow...

i have to say, my bf ROCKS! he was away sat night until last night and we surprised him at the airport when he arrived. he had taken the time to pick up stuff for all of us, but was really thoughtful about what to get me and even when he won a door prize, he picked one he thought i would like!

going to do hot yoga tonight to keep this powerful "vibe" going!

plan to succeed this weekend ladies! lets stick together!

Hola chicas...wishing you all a happy friday and a good weekend. Finish clean and strong!

Have had a bit much of chocolate today (Hershey's kisses in the office...I've picked off a few) but other than that I started off the day again (every morning this week!) with 45 minutes of cardio on one machine only, had a power protein breakfast and brought my lunch. Dinner will be tough because I am invited to a birthday happy hour and have to go b/c they're out of town guests...I usually don't feel the need to graze on finger foods so I should be fine. I just hope there's something healthy-ish I can nibble on so the wine won't go straight to my head.

Ugh. Today would have been day 13, but I binged. I am so mad at myself. Today was my weigh in for WW and I was down 1.6lbs, which is really exciting. But then I got to work and went crazy with all the treats that were out for someone’s birthday breakfast, and had this huge fattening sandwich for lunch that is making me feel sick. The day is only half over, so I hope I can be better the rest of the day and weekend. I just want to know why I lose my willpower right after my weigh ins. I am ok with having “treats” during the week that I count into my points, but not with today. I just feel like I wanted to tell you guys to make myself accountable for this.

Day 13 done and I've now lost 7lb in the 2 weeks I've been eating well. Actually I just ate a not-very-diet-friendly ham and cheese crępe and shared a dessert, but hey, I was enjoying myself with a friend, I was in control of my choices and I'll work the next few days' calories around them. I still feel so far from the loneliness and guilt I get when I'm binging, so at the moment I'm really happy.

Good luck everyone!

Completed day 12 yesterday. I did well during my work lunch. I ate about 1/2 of my healthy salad (no dressing) and I had 2 of the appetizers that were ordered for the group. And I successfully skipped the cupcakes!

Then I rewarded myself with two extra "treats" -- a soy misto from Starbucks and a fruit salad with some nice strawberries and raspberries. Yum! But I did end up nearly 300 calories above maintenance. But the damage could have been a lot worse...

296!

Thanks for the advice, Vixisn and Sarah. I'm doing okay with the breakup. I don't know, it just sucks. I think he just had some commitement fears, from what he described, this is the same situation he's found himself in with women in the past. He's 29 years old, so I guess these days, that's not too surprising, even though it seems like he should have it more together. He was so sweet with me when we were together, and when we weren't, he totally disappeared. I know he liked me, but just not enough to face his issues.

Last night, I went out with this guy I had gone out with a couple times a few months ago--he emailed me last week to see if I wanted to get together again, I thought why not? Well, it was totally too soon! It was just so sad to be there with him, this man who was perfectly nice, who was super into me and kept saying it, but who I feel zero attraction to. I thought maybe I would feel some, but it just wasn't there. And I knew the guy I just broken up with was just a few blocks away that night, playing a gig. I could have so easily gone down there and seen him. And I really wanted to. But I'm not crazy, luckily!

This is so hard, and I think it's especially hard since I'm not binging!! I'm just not used to feeling these emotions all the time!

Day 25 - Been thinking about Lent recently - Why don't we all give up binging for Lent? Kidding of course, wish it was as easy as that - My goal for Lent is 40 days of meditation - Which will be hard when I am out of town, but really want to find a way to work it.

Made pizza and drank wine with my fiance last night - worked on our marriage prep workbook, watched a little Jersey Shore - was a wonderful night but woke up with a slight headache (a little too much wine perhaps).

Plan to go the gym today here in a bit. I'm nervous for tonight because I'm having students that I went to France with over for dinner/drinks tonight - I party-ed with them in France because they were College students who party-ed Granted I am 29 and they are all 21.....

Back here I'm slowing down and especially after wine last night I want to take it easy - ALSO I know my eating choices aren't as good when I'm drinking - I have a menu of quiche, croque monsieurs, tarts, bread, nutella, cheese etc. So it's going to be a decadent menu - Just praying that, if at all possible, I'll be moderate in everything tonight and will wake up feeling great tomorrow. Don't want to over-do anything but don't want to be a stick-in-the-mud either Maybe I could use church as an excuse for taking it slow tonight. I guess my biggest prayer is that good conversation and catching up overpowers any desire/need to eat/drink <--- I love it when you're having such a good time, or vibing so well with the person you are hanging out with that the desire to over-do it is minimized - Feeding oneself with human interaction instead of food.

Ok these are my rambling thoughts today - Hope everyone has a great day!

Ugh. I've been too busy to get on and properly post.

Unfortunately I've been totally off plan. It's not like I sat down and ate copious amounts of food in one sitting, but I definitely over ate a LOT over the course of the past 2 days, and definitely had that feeling of wanting to eat eat eat, so I'm starting over.
