Good morning! It's been a long day. I thought it would be a 16+ hour day and it's going to be closer to a 20+ hour day. I started work at 7 a.m. yesterday and planned to work until 10 p.m. My meeting ended at 11 p.m. and I was dispatched to back one of my officers up at a domestic. It all turned out pretty well. The bad guy was arrested, I interviewed the victim and her 3 little girls. Now I just wanted to check in and vent as I have a big glass or water while I wait for my partner to sign my affidavit.

Tomorrow is my 6th WI, not sure I will even be awake for it.

I'm struggling to stay on my diet, because I've been so stressed, but I've stuck with it, and I'm proud of it.

Today will be my first day, of course working the 11p-7a shift might pose a few problems but my coach thinks all will be good.

Just got home. I hope you all have an awesome day. I will probably sleep through my WI time!

Just weighed in on my scale it read 401/02 so that's a good feeling especially since my legs are swollen. Hope to confirm later.

After a 3 week hiatus... I'm back on program Weekend trips for synchronized swimming competitions, a week in LA with a girlfriend to see "Ellen" and 2 birthdays= 0.2 lbs lost in a month. Not a great loss... But it's not a gain I tried to stick with 1-2 IP pckg/ day and making better choices- even though I was cheating... I proved to myself I can keep it off!! I sure learned the price of cheating~ im committed to being back on program 100% to loose the next 30 lbs. Already back in ketosis and feeling okay... Looking forward to being inspired by the success stories on this forum!

Good Morning Everybody!

So, my firm closed down last December and since then I have been a stay at home domestic Goddess. DH called out of work today for a mental health day, so I am gonna have to make myself look busy. I surely dont want him to see me enjoying being home instead of working. LOL

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning everyone! Day 10, and doing okay. I feel like the world is ending because I left my breakfast bar at home. On the bright side, I am able to button my jeans! And they're not digging into me when I sit down. So maybe it will be a good day, afterall. Hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Weighed in this morning. Another 2lbs outta here!!

I am setting no speed record, but still pleased that the weight is moving.

I have a day of dog grooming planned. The weather is great, so going to do some outside stuff.

Good morning all. About ready to hit the road for about a 10+ hour drive home. Either a cookie or a bar this morning and then a Subway salad for lunch and a RTD for mid day snack. We have leftovers in the ice chest that will be dinner. Back to work tomorrow. Ugh.

Glad to hear about the losses. Hope everyone had a great OP day.
