I'm 100% on avoiding alcohol.
99% on cheese- I went to dinner the other night and ordered a salad and didn't even think they might dump cheese on a garden salad but they did. I picked off as much as I could but inevitably could not get it all.
Gluttony- this one's hard because it's so subjective. I have to eat. I try to eat to the point of being full, but not to the point of being stuffed. I'm avoiding desserts and things like that, because that does strike me as sort of being gluttony although I guess it might more aptly be called decadence. So I'm just trying to use my judgement.

Dee, I think you're doing great! I'm using my judgment, too.

41 days until Easter.
In range
Exercised.

I'm failing rather epically on the cheese. I haven't bought any more cheese sticks or the like, but my boyfriend is on a nacho kick and I've had some. Still way less then I was consuming before.

Still good on Facebook and about 99 percent on swearing.

RadioJane, just keep going. You're doing great! We're all in this together. Besides, Our Lord is happy we're trying.

Today is 40 days before Easter. Today I take an exercise class. That seems to motivate me more than just doing exercises by myself. Exercise is my struggle, but I keep trying to do my best. Yesterday I went to Church to ask for God's help and strength.

I'm also determined to stay within my calorie range today. So far, so good.

Let's keep trying to do our best.

39 days until Easter. Yesterday was easier for me! I stayed within my calorie range and had an aerobics class. Today I've planned my meals, and shall exercise later in the day.

We can do this together.

I am really struggling with gluttony. Argh. The past two days, I have to say I failed. I didn't eat at any point to the point of being stuffed, but I ate more than I should have. I made fried rice last night (in hindsight, probably a mistake) and had a pretty good sized portion to start with...then went back for seconds.

I'm still 100% on alcohol, and 99% on cheese.

Dee, keep going. All we can do is never give up trying. Besides, you've given up alcohol and cheese! Those are hard things to give up!

abetterme, congrats on not yelling, having more patience and swearing less. Giving up all those things takes strength!

We're making progress together.

It's 38 days until Easter. Ate 1350 calories yesterday, and exercised to a Richard Simmons dvd.

Today I've planned my calories - even going out to dinner. Going out for a walk now.

Ate all weekend for the birthday party and for St. Patrick's day party. Still good on cheese and Facebook. Slipped a little on the swearing.

Still good on cheese and alcohol. Ate too much last night- we got invited over for a St. Patrick's day dinner - corned beef, potatoes, cabbage, peas, fruit salad, beer bread, soda bread and kahlua pie. *SMH* Conquering gluttony is definitely the hardest. Oddly, just knowing I can't have alcohol or cheese makes me sort of not crave it although I suspect the closer I get to Easter the more I'll look forward to it.
