Hi everyone,

I can't believe it's Thursday already. The week is flying by - I guess it's been a busy one. Thanks for all the well-wishes, everyone, my cold is on the mend and I'm starting to feel better and have some energy again. I skipped the gym Tuesday but went yesterday and ran a few miles (the 5K is this Saturday - gotta be ready!) and went to my aerobic instructor's last class. As soon as I have time to take a breath (this weekend, hopefully) I'm going to sit down and write down some of the moves I've learned from her, make up some new gym routines to supplement what I do on my own and make sure I don't lose what I've gained from her classes in the past 3 months. My whole body is tighter and less jiggly due to those classes, even though I haven't lost any weight. I am so sad she's leaving, even though she'll be making more $ at her new job and I'm happy for that, of course.

Bikini Dreader, welcome to the forum! Sounds like you did a great job moderating at the Indian buffet. That is so hard for me to do at a buffet - kudos to you.

Brooke, good luck moving! All that lifting and carrying will definitely burn calories.

sexybrokechick, rather than "feeling like you've failed" try to focus on what you can do now to be healthy. What's the sense beating yourself up for the past week? You can't change what's happened. Today is a new day.

amb_lyn, I hope you don't go too crazy at home. I totally understand your need to work out - I've developed the same thing! I figure there are a lot worse obsessions we could have than working out (in a healthy manner, which we do). Glad your recovery is going well.

zuluprincess, don't give up! Think about the non-tangible things, not the number on the scale. Do your clothes fit better? Does your body feel healthier? Stick to it and you'll see results. You can do it!

Gotta get back to work. Hi to everyone else! Hope your weeks are going well.

It's someone's birthday in my office. Instead of eating cake, I saved my mango for this afternoon and had that while everyone was eating cake. Ha, cake. Ha! Take that.

Hey!! I am a newbie, and i guess running a little late on the weekly check-in. This place is addictive! And not fattening, like yummy fries.

megan, good for you and your mango! I love that feeling when i can manage soemthing like that. Much better than thinking "I didn't really want to eat this but I can't control myself so may as well have seconds." I know because this week I walked right past a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts at work and got my english muffin and peanut butter out for breakfast instead. Ha! Take that, delicious glazed bits of heaven!

The weather is clearing up here, thank god. Yesterday was c25K day, and I couldn't do anythng because of the rain. I was ticked off too. I love that I get cranky when I can't run or walk outside! That's a good sign, right?

Hope everyone week keeps going well or gets better!

It's Friday. My usual pizza day. Today for the second week in a row, I am not having pizza. I am going out for dinner with a friend and I will not have that delicious pizza. Friday is no longer my "day off". I used to think I deserved the break from eating properly and would just allow myself to binge on Fridays. Now I think I deserve to eat healthy food and get to that goal weight! This is a hard day for me. I hope everyone has a good day.

Whew. Yesterday was crazy! It rained also. -sigh- But, we got everything that needed to be moved across the street before it started pouring down rain. I really over did myself because I am feeling it today. I have to go over to the old place here in a few and clean up a few things so the property manager and I can do the walk through to see if we can get the whole deposit back. Wish us luck!

Just weighed myself, and I've lost 2 more pounds! Yeah! I am really, really close to onderland now!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hope ur all doing well, and are happy with how ur diet is going.

Hi everyone! i am pretty new here and i am just out to look for encouragement and inspiration and hopefully to give a little back too!
well, i havent exercised today and im using the weather as my lame excuse. it is all snowy out, not the nice fluffy snow, but the gray-sky blowing all over the place snow. when its blah outside, i feel blah too and just dont feel like doing anything. i DID however eat a turkey wrap for my lunch, and drank some sunny d instead of my usual pop (i probably would have had two cans by now, but im really trying to resist reaching in that box).
im very excited about my 24th birthday coming up on tuesday. now i just have to try to limit the birthday cake to one piece.....but its so good! im gonna need u guys to stand behind me on this and remind me i dont need those extra pieces of cake!!!
well i hope everyone is doing well and keeping up their good work. u can do it! we have to help each other keep going!

Okay, so i just ate taco bell well, it WAS the first time all week that i had fast food, so im pretty proud of myself for getting this far. also, i went grocery shopping and actually stuck to my shopping list! I almost gave in to those cadbury eggs (i mean they only come by once a year!!!) but i didnt give in (YAAA). instead i bought a single serving of mallo-cups...remember those??? i knew that would satisfy my choco-craving and keep me from eating an entire package of cadbury eggs! hey it doesnt hurt to give in a little bit. and i stopped when i was full...the purpose of eating is not to fill up every corner of your stomach (do stomachs have corners??). anyway, today i guess i found a happy medium with my eating, so im happy.

Last night wasn't my best night. Friday's are not good for me. I went out to dinner with an old friend and actually made a fairly healthy choice. No dessert but we did split a half litre of white wine which I'm sure didnt help. Then I got home and watched a movie. I dont know why but during the movie I mindlessly ate a big portion of frozen grapes. I really didnt need them and I at them for about an hour and a half later than my eating cut off time. I just mindlessly ate them and my excuse to myself was that I didnt eat pizza for dinner. Today is a new day. I really wish I didnt eat that extra food last night but I did. I'm off to the gym this morning as always and I will push myself extra hard! New choices today.

That must be really stressful. You could be subconciously using going to get food as a break from your paper? What if you tried scheduling in 15 minute break every little while to stretch or read an article in a magazine or log on to this site or something? YOu might be more productive than trying to work straight through and that urge to run to the kitchen might subside? Let me know how it goes. Good luck with the paper.

Thank you for the advice and well wishes...I finally decided that proximity to my kitchen was part of the problem. I made the trek to the law school library today and haven't had any cravings for anything. I do take breaks though, that's really helpful. I usually come here during my 15 min breaks. I'm incapable of actually concentrating for more than 45 min at a time.
