I attended The Farm midwifery event their first year. Ina Mae taught me how to deliver breech.

I no longer do delivery but delivered so many babes since I worked in very busy units.
I think I got it out of my system.
Jem you have had a very blessed life. Helping a new life come into the world is something to be very thankful and proud of.

One missed phone call, changed my life. I have longed to be someone that helps others. I have wanted it all of my life. And helping a woman hold her fresh loving baby, well it would never have be, better than that. Well except holding ones one.

Oh yes the photos! Oh they can hurt one to the core and make you want to find that rock to hide under. I for sure feel you Shanan. And now for me and because I have lost so much weight, I can pick which outfit to wear. Today I change shirts several times just because I can. The events I have missed because of my weight are uncountable.

Shanan you are young. Please stick with this fight and wear tight clothes after you get to what you want to be. Never wear clothes that have stretch to them. And when they feel one finger too small STOP eating. SweetLady Shanan don't let your mind control your hand. Control it with your free spirit! YOU are worth it!!!
You Are Worth It!!!!

Well last night my bf's work had an open house party for clients. So I got off work and tried on all of my dress pants they were either too baggyy (14-16) or too small 10 and 11. So I went to tj maxx and ended up fitting into 12's yay. Anyway we had a good time and I did not have one bit of trouble not eating their food or alcohol! I drank water and ate when I got home. Aso I stopped at the drugstore on the wayy home and the lady at the counter was like aren't you our Frito Lay rep? And I said yes and laughed because I just stopped in there on the way home from work that same afternoon and she rung me up then too. She said oh wow you sure look different with clothes on! Lol I wear a uniform kindof. Frito lay polo shirts and khaki shorts or pants. She's like, that outfit reallly does you justice girl, you look like you have lost abut 30lbs! I said I've lost 22 but thanks. I went home and told Rob gosh I know my lothes are getting baggy but I must look like a slob at work! I dug out some old (2 or 3 years) shorts and all of the 12's fit so today I wore shorts that actually fit LOL

Lol no I mean he said "you look nice" when I got there but he doesn't notice the weight loss yet. He's very blunt about things and doesn't believe in lying about things like complements. Like if I wear a dress and he thinks it looks bad he will pick another one or tell me that's not his favorite.. this whole weightloss issue has been a major point of problems with us. Me forcing answers about myself from him that I didn't want to hear and now that's all I think about and alot of what's spurring me on with the weightloss. I wish I could just scream sometimes I have been so mad.
I am sure by the time I get closer to goal he will notice. He sees me everyday so its not really apparent to him.

Blerg!
Monday.
I am asking my dear friends here for patience, I am feeling like I am in for a whine fest. I do count my blessings .... I have a safe, warm apartment, kitties,art, and my PC... but I am so darn sick of the pain and feeling bad. The fibro is relentless and I slept poorly for the millionth time so I am at loose ends. I have not eaten anything off list at all, but my darn appetite is raging, raging, raging. I have such an urge to get starchy treats and just give up. I know they would make me feel worse. But this is not a logical thing. I am just craving. This happened to me last year too, and I caved in and had holiday food and gained a ton over the winter. The only thing that is saving me at the moment is that it is 1:33 a.m. and the store does not open till 7 am. But trust me it has gone through my head to go to the 24 hour drug store and get candy. This is insane. Call it what it is , it is INSANE. *** sigh *** Thanks for listening.

Cathleen I know what you are talking about.
I can be full and still want to eat.
I really wish there were something I could do to help.
The only thing I can come up with is that if you are going to overeat something make sure it is high fat/low carb. Any high carb item is going to make the cravings worse. But I know you know that.
I have been struggling with this lately and I have been having cream cheese clouds.......they feel like a cheat but really are not. I also make SF custard with HWC or pumpkin bake. You may not lose eating these but they will not set you back like a candy bar or some other high carb item.

Being sick is not the time to worry about losing weight. Your body is under a lot of stress. As long as you stay LC/HF you will be OK until you feel better and then you can buckle down again.

An other thing, please don't be so hard on yourself, it is not your fault. Being sleep deprived can increase you appetite dramatically. It is not that you are somehow a flawed person who can't control yourself. You are probably able to withstand the cravings far better than the average person. The average person probably does not have cravings anything like what we get.
I am so sorry things a so difficult for you right now!
I know it can feel so overwhelming at times.

I wish I could do more for you
Hang in there...we are here for you!
