Ellis-Problem is that those two eat like pigs and are THIN!!!!! (Besides, depending on the food it might only encourage them!!!)

Poppy-YUP! A snack ain't a snack until you have eaten a whole box of goldfish!!!

BF = Best Friend?

soooooo my BF (boyfriend) is my BF (best friend) ? coolies.

and better late than never, but blackbird - good for you for not slapping your offspring into next month. I love my kids more than life itself but there have been times when homicide seemed a viable option. and even more good for you for not grabbing a drink. you did good.

Hang in there, Raven... you're doing great.
When my children are "getting to me", I've learned to simply tell them to give me some space. I'll go up to my room with a book or something. It's okay to separate yourself from them when you're feeling that way, and it's okay to let them know how you're feeling. Hugs, hon...


ps... sorry, I did NOT intend to sound like a know-it-all... just throwing in my life experiences.

Pigs Anonymous... a thread truly for me!!!

Why is it that I can go weeks and feel strong, exercise every day, eat really well, etc., and then I have ONE weekend where a friend comes to visit and I not only fall off the bandwagon for the weekend but for days afterwards?

I just wish I had the resolve to do well & be strong when something unexpected comes up... like a party, or a friend coming to visit or whatever. I seem to lose it all.

So today is my start-over day... again, lol!

(And Blackbird - everyone is right, don't beat yourself up over your set-back - you're doing awesome!).

Thanks to everyone for clueing me in to the mystery initials.

From what I've seen so far, this is by far the most fun thread on the forum. And goodness knows we all need a rakish sense of humor.

Alright, today started my TOM and I still went to the gym. It felt good at the time, but I am just totally whiped out now. Want to eat goldfish, then sleep.

How is everyone else doing?

PS - Blackbird, whenever I read your name I think of the Beatles song: Blackbird singing in the dead of night/take your broken wing and learn to fly. Why did you choose your name?

Yeah, Blackbird... me too. Thank goodness I love the song, because I can't get it out of my head!

I have eaten everything in sight today. sigh. I wouldn't even know where to begin. So I won't bore you...
Tomorrow had better be better, man. My neck is getting to be almost the same width as my head.

I started my new prescriptions tonight. An inhaler with steroids, and some gosh-awful tasting pills for a bacterial infection. In my lungs. Crap. I WANT TO GET BETTER AND GO TO THE GYM!!! waaaaaaaaaah!!!

I was thinking you chose your name from the Beatles song TOO, Blackbird - such a beautiful song too. There is a wonderful memoir by the same name that I love, can't think of the author at the moment, but she grew up in California in the 1970s I think.

I ate 2 peppermint patties yesterday under duress...I mean it was a stressful day, and I do know better, but oh well...doing OK today, and I hope I'll do better still tomorrow...

Okay, some confessions to make. I was going all good on a low cal day yesteday, until it all fell apart at night. I made popcorn (with butter), as well as sugar cookies. I also ate a big spoonful of peanut butter. Ugh! Trying harder today, though.

I ate sandwiches yesterday - bread sandwiches! I got stuck working at the Farmers' Lunch at the Church and ate because I was starved. I resisted Rhea's pecan pie, however.
Oh well, today is a new day.
