Boy this week seems to have gone by so fast. I haven't had the ususal internet time, hence the short posts lately.
I am still OP. It is pretty esy to stay OP at work becuase unless you bring it or bring money you don't eat. My co-workers have been rpetty supportive so there is no pressure to eat what they bring in. Everyonce in awhile I get craving, but I haven't caved so far. I decided that my prune snacks were not helping me at all. SO I have eliminated them
. I will have to investigate something else. The other thing I would like to investigate is using sugar alternatives and baking. But then I think it is not worth the risk. I am worried about the upcoming holifday season. I am a baker and did this as a hobby in teh winter. I am thinking of taking sewing lessons to compensate. DH is doing well and is a godsend doing this along w/ me. It makes things so much easier. He has lost quite a bit now and we help each other when we are thinking of caving.
Sue, How are things going? I am a worker and god willing have never been unemployed. The time off would drive me loopy, but I have no kids. The cold is better. I haven't pushed myself too hard this week exercise wise. Just kept myself connected to it. Do you have an exercise ball? How do you use/ like it?
Dana, Yes Op is great. You are a goddess!!. Something the otehr day reminded me of your fat suit analogy. And got me laughing. I think I was actually thinking that I could be successful in my journey. My next hurdle is to weigh less and need to buy new clothes in 20 -22 size. This is quite a mental thing. I weighed 225# when I got married the 2nd time. I don't want to fall in teh trap of well I got into all my current clothes so I did it. ANd not keep working. It si so much a mental battle too.
Terri I was so glad to see your post Coangrat on being OP
Lee, If my DH ( whom I spoiled when we were first married and I am trying to unspoil him now) did teh dishes w/o being indstructed and threatened I would either be dying, he did something really bad, or he has been repleced by an alien. I want to comment on something you said one day that has helped me at work and in stressful situations. YOu remarked that I must be one tough lady because I work in a prison w/ inmates. That comment has helped me alot lately and thank you for pointing taht out.
Pam. Take it a day at a time. You are doing well and are a strong lady. I love your enthusiasm and energy.
