Thanks guys. Still not sure what is wrong with FIL. Could be dehyrdation, could be an alergic reaction. But he has heart failure. I hope he can still live a life with that. There are different degrees of that.

MIL went nuts at me today because of the stress. Called me a bad father. Obsessed with my diet. Preferred me fat. Etc. Etc.

I kept my cool because she is under enormous pressure. Besides, I heard all that sh!t before from other people.

She later apologized.

But I repeat...already heard that sh!t from other people.

Stay the course.

No change.

Sue, that is HUGE!!! I'm really happy for you!
Keep up the wonderful work!


Ian: I'm glad you're keeping your head up despite the negative comments. Your wife's opinion is the only one that should truly matter anyway.

Thank you all for your congrats! It made me feel even better!

Look at you Rosered DOWN 2 lbs ! Now I know where the Whoosh Fairy flew off too!

IAN... Oh gosh... I am sorry that your MIL was so stressed out to say things that she really did not mean. You are a great father! You are a great person! She was and is stressed out and worried beyond all things. Unfortunately.. you got to be the punching bag... I am so sorry and I sure do hope that the doctors figure out how to stabalize your FIL so that he feels better and has a plan of working towards having a good life again! and Wahey to you!.. down to the 164's again!

Yay.. I am down too... I am on a mission! LOL

Congrats, Sue! Nice job winning the last one - hope you can repeat that!

Ian, sorry to hear that the stress of your FIL's health is continuing - hope he stabilizes with manageable conditions soon. I'm super impressed with how you handled your MIL - I need to learn to find the compassion and composure you did!

We are back from vacation and I was really super on-plan the whole time. There was no scale there. I started exercising (!!!), doing HIIT on the elliptical most days I was there. I read books, napped, etc - super relaxing and really nice to have daycare for my babies for a few hours and time for myself. The scale, however, is up a bit (I thought I'd probably lost a pound or two so I was pretty disappointed this morning). But hopefully it's just bloat from the airplane and the mysterious hamburger patty I ate at the airport (maybe it had soy or other fillers? it was disgusting). Maybe it will give me an edge in this Lose 5 Pounds challenge & I'll see a big drop quickly now that I'm back home!

Did not do good this weekend. All I wanted to do was eat. I felt hungry no matter what I ate. Hopefully tomorrow some water weight will fall off. Fingers crossed.

Ian I'm glad you were able to hold your cool. I am sure she is angry and scared. It sucks that she decided to lash out at you and say things she knew would hurt. It doesn't make her behavior acceptable, but at least you know where it is coming from. I hope today is better for everyone.

Thanks guys. MIL apologized. She never apologizes so she must have meant it. FIL might come out of hospital tomorrow and then its a medi-evac home once he is OK-ish to fly.

Up 2.6 lbs today. Yikes.

Up 2. Not too bad considering I ate everything I could get my hands on over the past three days (and had a migraine to contend with yesterday). Trying to get back on track today, but I still don't feel 100%.
