Aw, Den. Thank you! I am sitting here after everyone else has gone to bed - can't sleep, it is too hot and sticky and somehow my brain is wide awake. And also maybe I am awake as I was going through old letters today and it is just weird, to say the least!

And I realize that all that has NOTHING to do with anything here!

NOPE! But I can relate COMPLETELY!! I have nights like that OFTEN, and reminiscing (whether good or bad) can really "get you going" and keep you awake!!

Yeah, and so of course I sorted MORE letters today, and stuff of my mom's and her mother's, so am expecting another 2 am bedtime! If so I will certainly post a few posts then -

My mother had horrible insomnia every night, though - and no computer!

I have learned not to sort through things/think deep thoughts/reminice later at night. Too much lost sleep.

But to keep with the thread I think I am down another 1/2 lb.

Congratulations, Squeak!!

I keep my old letters and "memories" in a couple of old suitcases. Once every couple of years I'll pull them out, but it takes AGES to go through them, and there are a lot of tears while I'm doing it. AND some laughter!

Went to the cliinc today and I weighed in at 177.6, thats a 5.2 lbs loss since I started on Thursday. I am so happy that the cheating I did on friday and saturday didn't show up. But I wonder what the scale would have said if I didn't cheat those days. Anywany I happy that the zombies (nurses) at the clinic didn't have to wake up long enough to give me grief about the cheating (not that I told them). I find that it is harder to sleep at night mostly because my mind is still up thinking about the diet. I got up this morning at 5:45 and went for my 3.2 Km walked, had a shower and then walked to the subway another 1.5 Km so hopefully tonight I will be way to tired to think.

Squeker congrats on your 1/2 lb that's great!.

I ate out too much last week so I am not sure how I am doing for the challenge My WW meeting was cancelled due to the Civic Holiday so I have not weighed in. This gives me a week to get back OP

Well done, Squeak! And Mauvais I am sure you will get back OP with no trouble...I am painstakingly writing stuff down again in my food diary, which I had conveniently misplaced (hah!) - it is the right size and I can't use anything else smaller (I need to write down every little bite and can get wordy).

I just had TOM and am about 145.5/146 I think, but hopefully will have a good OP week and not go up any more! I have been eating more from frustration/boredom since we got back from England - lots of rainy days playing on the computer and arbitrating between the young ladies of the house (i.e. saying "I don't want to HEAR what she said, you two have to work it out yourselves!")

So I behaved for the past two days have not cheated and walked my 3.2 Km. each day and I go into the clinic this morning and I have only lost 2 oz. I do feel really bloated today and I think I am retaining some water but it is depressing.

I think you are reatining water too - don't worry about it, just keep on doing all the great things you are doing and you WILL see results...I have been about the same weight for months now, down a couple then back up a couple - but better to just keep plugging away. And better than a gain - a loss is a loss, so congrats!

Thanks Lidan you are a great source of support for people here and I am grateful for your kind words and encouragement. I worked really late last night and was so tired and depressed I gave in and had 4 beers. I got to say I slept like a baby and right through my alarm. Work up a 8 (have to be at work at 9) I took a cab and went to the clinic. I stepped on that scale and it said I was down 2 lbs since yesterday. ( I guess I got rid of the water) I now know that there are going to be days that I wont lose and I shouldn't get depressed over it. Last night was a give in night and I am going to try not to do that again. (this week anyway)

I agree with Den...you know I have been known to go up as much as 4-5 lbs from morning to afternoon and I KNOW I didn't eat enough to make that happen - I reckon some of us are just very sensitive to water, or salt, or both...or the time of day (or time of month) - there's something to be said for weighing just once a week or so, though I am pretty bad about that (jumping on at least once a day, etc, hence being able to note the afternoon jump in weight!)
