That's great Mulse! 8 oz of canned tuna is A LOT of tuna to try to eat in one sitting!

drd1961, Yayalaine, Ruth Ann, sunflwr816 Thank you all for the encouraging words! Had a much better day today and drank a ton of water (and still more to go!). I don't know what I'd do without this board.

Me neither. I know I'd have never stuck to plan as long...

Our fun weekend is drawing to an end. My daughter's play was very nice. She had let me read her script in December but she made some changes to it since then. Her Dad has not read her works lately and I do not think he realized how good her writing has gotten until today. He had tears in his eyes at the end. So sweet.

Anyway, have eaten too much and will be P1 for a couple of days to flush all of this out. We did a lot of walking and I worked out in the fitness center this morning and will again tomorrow morning before we hit the road for the long drive home. Always sad leaving the daughter but she will be visiting in May before she starts summer internships.

Glad you had a better day! And I have to tell you I giggle every time I see your user name - that was one of my grandmother's favorite sayings!

Glad you had a good time drd! And so glad your daughter is doing well - must make you very, very proud!

Just made it through my 7th weekend without cheating!! Weekends have always been the hardest for me. I have been to two wedding showers, two family birthday dinners, and a few casual get-togethers with friends. And, I have stayed OP!

My husband and family are so shocked, but proud. They keep saying, "You STILL haven't cheated?" Haha! I'm pretty amazed myself.

But, I realize that it's one day at a time. And, like someone wrote somewhere earlier today, sometimes it's one hour at a time.

When I do feel tempted, I often go on the boards and read... it shows me that it's possible to stick with it and that there are a lot of success stories out there.... and I believe that I will be one, too, one day!

NSV today. The girl guides were selling cookies at the exit of the grocery store. When asked if I would like to buy some I said with a smile "No thanks girls, I'm on a diet!". Even though I'm in maintenance now I know if I bought those cookies that I would devour the whole box over the next couple days. I like to support the kids but not with buying garbage food anymore!

Well I think I'm dumping my birth control pills. I have my tubes tied and I only use them to control my hormones and keep me from heavy TOM, but since IP has it's own ideas about my cycle I might as well chuck the added chemicals in pills, plus the 5lbs I carry by taking them. Now if I could just trust the warning signs of TOM, I thought to myself a few days ago.. "man I'm hungry it's like I'm going to start my period again, but that can't be cause I just finished" HA HA HA

Steph- that is great! I feel the same way about certain foods in the house. IP has changed how I view food completely. Today at a family party, I said, it is not that I can't have the desserts- I choose not to have it. Then everyone "got" it.

Recently I had the realization that there are some foods I will never buy again. For lack of a better way to put it, they are *my* trigger foods. If I were to eat them, to me, it's the point of no return. I cannot manage to control myself when I eat that food. As most of you all know, when I was at my highest weight, I was over 600lbs. You don't get to 600+lbs without having a skewed relationship with food. My comfort food was ice cream. Specifically, Ben & Jerry's Phish Food. It was not uncommon for me to polish off 4 pints of this gooey mess in a week.. It was a combination of liking the taste of it (mostly NOT this though), and my emotional state that was completely out of control. So as much as I love you, Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, you'll never been hitching a ride in my grocery cart again. I have too much love for myself to give in to that can of worms..
