Okay, so .... I've been pretty swamped with traveling and real world 'reentry' so I've not had much time for the boards other than the daily thread but it's been getting me really depressed and irritated with all the whining. (Yeah, I know I went through my own minor whiny moments, but c'mon people!!!)

Anyway, just wanted to say that I'm glad y'all are still hanging out here. :-)

My new policy is I'm not answering any more questions opened as single threads anymore, no matter HOW tempting the question,etc... If the only answer is "post in the daily" maybe the amount of new posts will slow down. Occasionally someone has a valid purpose for a new thread, but usually not.

Congrats on the success of the clinic opening week(s)!!! I'm going to send you an order as soon as I figure out what I want/need.

_________________________________________________

A few of you had asked earlier if I'm going back to Phase I as I went thru phase out to maintenance to buy some time on biotin/iron for the hair loss, and I forgot to reply. The loss does appear to be slowing tho it's still more than normal. So I've decided to stay in maintenance for 1 more week, then back to Phase 1 or 2 for me to get those last few lbs! I'm pretty excited at the thought! I'll do the alternative plan as it felt better for my body (hypoglycemia) after I switched and my weight loss appeared to be the same on alternative. I don't think it will bother me at all going back into 1 or 2.

Thanks, Lisa! Yeah, the worst part about going away is coming back, and realizing I still have to work for a living. In my next life I'll be a famous underwater photographer and I'll be able to spend my time doing what I love - and teaching others - all of the time! For now I get to deal with petty office politics and a major home move that would be kind of fun if it weren't so stressful at the same time.

I'm thankful that one major area of my life that felt so uncontrollable for so many years is now [amazingly!] under control, thanks to IP and all of you. Glad you all are still here ... I think I'll be ditching the daily thread for awhile.

I feel better just for having made the decision so hopefully I can sleep tonight.

I had a hard time getting on the threads today between my meltdown and Internet problems at home. I managed to stay strong food wise. It was an interesting challenge today - my company created a national cupcake day to raise money for humane societies across Canada. Lots of cupcakes to buy at the office and some really yummy looking flavors, and of course for charity. It took me about 4 minutes to break down and buy $20 worth (8), which I promptly gave away to my staff and was not bit tempted to try them myself.

I've also made the decision to start phase 2 after my next weigh in. I think I'm as close to goal as I'm comfortable regardless of the scale number.

Tonight I'm in my sauna listening to relaxation music trying to calm myself before bed. Amazing how these decisions I've made today have stopped my obsessive need to clean and purge in my house.

KitKat - congrats on a few big decisions! Deciding to defer the course isn't easy but you want to be at your best for it, and if plugging forward was going to add too much stress to your plate, better to hold off until you can really give it your all.

And congrats on deciding to move to P2! You look amazing, and you'll do great!!!

My DH is an IT PIMP too! LOL! I tease I'm about being a PMP. Sounds like PIMP!

I haven't been around as much lately. Very busy at work and home. So just catching up on everyone's updates.

Still following 100%, but have had zero losses for 2 weeks in a row but trying not to whine about it.... (That's for you Lisa! ). Trying to stay positive, especially since my measurements have been going down. It is hard to stay positive, and trying not to think about it. I know the long term is that I will lose and continue to do so on this program! Sometimes the hardest part is changing the conversation that goes on in my brain, without having a big argument with myself!

So here's hoping for a big whoosh this week!

Congrats Wuv!!! That is great. They are very lucky to have you as a coach.

I haven't posted much lately, I have had a hard time figuring out what I want to read on here. I visit here and the daily but I have to admit I have been reading other new threads and cannot bring myself to post on them. Many topics would be better served on the daily. Thank you to those willing to help them out in a much nicer tone that I would.

I have been doing well. I have increased my exercise and am at the point where I am ok if I slow down with the weight loss. I played indoor field hockey yesterday for the first time in about 14 years (yikes!!) and managed to play the whole 50 minute game. I supplemented with an extra packet and egg whites. I really enjoyed the vigorous exercise but I know it is not the best for me right now. I am trying to figure out what I need to do, there is still a lot to lose but I love the fact that I am able to do things I haven't been able to do since before my kids were born.

Was this for the PMP exam? If so, I think you made the right choice. It can be a really tough one, and it takes a lot of focus and energy. It's really best to do it when you can really devote the time and energy. (I did the PgMP last year and was beyond relieved when it was finally behind me!)

Sleep well!!

My coach always takes my measurements before my WI and each time there's a major loss in inches she tells me not to be surprised if there's not a big weight loss. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what is happening in your case. I wouldn't worry too much about the number on the scale. Your size and the way clothes fit - and how you feel - are what really matter.

Thanks Bubbleblower! I needed those kind words today. You are very right, how I feel is what's most important. And I definitely feel good, and my clothes are getting really big. I started 'retiring' some pants that make me look ridiculous because they're so big. Thanks again!

You HAVE had losses in the last 2 weeks...losses of size (inches). It all counts. It's all good. The scale is not the only thing that matters. You can still be losing fat when the scale is staying the same. The whoosh comes next time your body releases water, too.

Congrats on your losses the last 2 weeks! Do the happy dance!
