Cool No 3FC for a few days...what did you do to replace the VOID

Each time I tried to login...and failed...I felt like I lost my best friend.

So each time I failed I decided to do something productive. 20 situps, 20 squats and a glass of water!

What did you do?

I COMFORT ATE! AHHHH!!!

It's finals week, and I'm in school and working full time, and I have a six page paper due at midnight I'm only half done with. I use 3FC to keep me balanced when I'm stressed with school. Every hour of paper writing earns me 10 minutes of 3FC time! But man oh man, yesterday was bad! I replaced it with a strawberry cheesequake blizzard from Dairy Queen! Big mistake

Thanks to my 3FC friends I've learned lots of strategies to keep me on track. While I certainly missed posting and catching up with my friends in Christian Encouragers, the outage didn't affect me much.

I spent more time knitting my sweater, and reading a book. Worthy endeavors, indeed

I was lost without it. I spent time playing Warcraft 3, games on facebook, and kept trying to connect to 3fc. It was so frustrating.

I've actually been pretty busy so I don't know the extent of the outage. I had a super busy day at work the first day that issues started so I didn't realize there was a problem until later that day. I also had a karate belt test and practicing for the test. Then yesterday (was the outage still occurring?), I was doing some kitchen/pantry re-arrangement and did some shopping for that as well as other errands.

I kept focus on keeping my WL blog up to date, logging my food on my WW online and reading my favourite WL blogs (like B*tch Cakes, who I absolutely adore).

I was lost... worried... mad... scared I'd never be able to access 3FC again!

What did I do to replace it: a couple of other weight loss sites (not half as good as this one, which feels like home) and OMG - work!

Love this site, maybe a little *too* much
