Excellent idea!
Sometimes eating something like this can save you from eating worse.
Holidays are stressful times.

Well I am going to give the bed an other try.
When I got out of it tonight I was really wanting to eat but so far so good.
I just had some diet tonic water and I am good.
Good night all.

I am so sorry you guys are having such a hard time sleeping. Lol that is hardly ever a problem for me. I fall asleep like a rock at 8:30 if not before. Getting up at 2 am everyday means I am tired all the time. I slept in until 5:30am yesterday on my day off and took a nap from 1:30-4 and still fell asleep before 9!
I was so dissapointed this morning. I weighed 170.4 yesterday and was really hoping to see the 160's but nope 170.9. Dangit!

Thank you all dear friends for your support and friendship. You have no idea what it means to me. Love you all.

Cathleen, hang in there. My sister has the same issues and sometimes it is really hard. She finally got the thyroid under control and lost a little. Being ill doesn't help nor the weather. Good comments Heather. I can say ditto to Heather's comments. Try some Atkins friendly treats. Holidays are tough. I caved in a few times this last month. I just went right back on plan and for once didn't hate myself. Stress is awful. Not feeling well is awful. Maybe get together with some understanding friends. Call me collect. I am here for you. we all are.

Why do so many of have sleep issues??? When I was younger I could sleep like Shanan describes. Now I am up and down all night. Part of it is thinking too much about problems. I can't get back to sleep so I get up and do things around the house. It often wakes up DH as we have a small home.

BIL better but not out of the woods. He is supposed to transfer to a skilled nrsing facility for intense rehab. However at 375lbs all the equip needed must be oversized. His ins is awful so we have to pay for everything. The items are called bariatric. At least he has really stopped smoking for sure and he is eating better and I can see he has lost some weight.

Shanan, you are doing so well. The weight is falling off. Stay strong for the holidays. It will be easy for me as no cooking, no celebration. We will be with BIL where ever he is. My daughter is working for double time and a half until 6 so this is a good year not to cook. I usually do this holiday. I just want to see the grand kids.

Hoping to get the Xmas tree up soon. I can't let the grand kids down. Not a happy time though.

ML, hi

Linda

ML, proud of you on the small piece of cake. I can not eat just one of anything illegal. I have such portion control issues especially lately.

All of us need to make a pact to stay strong during the holidays. Please continue to come here for support and support of us too.

Linda

Linda at least you wont have the added stress of hosting and cooking this year. I am glad to hear there is some improvement with you BIL. And sorry to hear you all have the added financial stress. Just try and take care of yourself too when we are stressed and overwhelmed its so common for us ladies to but ourselves last. Just stay strong and know we are praying for you.

Linda, I'm glad to see you are looking for some better days ahead with the G-kids at xmas How is your Dh doing with the loss of his Dad? I believe he was trying to remodel his Dad's house for himIs it the BIL's Dad also? Is it getting easier with his dog? All healed up now? It sounds like once you get BIL settled,maybe thing will be a little bit easier.I hope so,caregivers can just take so much before THEIR health suffers I know you must be exhausted
Yes,we will all have to be good for the Holidays! I'm losing too slow to go backwards!

You are doing amazingly well SL!!!!!
You will get there tomorrow!!!!

I have never slept very well....even as a little girl.
I really feel that this has a lot to do with why I have such a weight problem.

Hi Linda,
I am so glad that your BIL is getting the help he needs.
Stoping smoking is so good for his health.
Hopefully he will continue to lose weight.
Children are such a blessing......I am so glad you have your grandchildren to love!

You and your family are in my prayers
This has got to be such a tough time for you all.

Yep all I did was take one very small bite. Then I went outside and sweep leaves off of their back patio to the garage. My DIL's mama came out and asked me what in the world was I doing and I told her I was sweeping off that little bite of cake. She said I was being silly. I said well I am working hard to get rid of the rest of me and she said, Marylouise you look like you have lost more since I seen you last and I told her the scales did not think so and my body was just probably re-shaping its self.

I do feel different. Everything is looser. Is that a word? Looser?

GOSH I feel GREAT TODAY!:s ing:

I have my own outside cat now. Her name is Jessie. One of my grand daughters said she was all mine. I started feeding her about 2 weeks ago and now every-time I go outside she is there asking to be fed again. She is gray and white and has one ear that has been chewed on, bad. But she doesn't think anything about only having half an ear!

Nathleen has one for me she is raising till we move from her last litter. That will make 2 cats! And I plan on having a barn full!

Thank you Heather for the Happy Birthday Wishes to my grand daughter. I will NOT forget to give them to her this week. I am going to go get her Wed. She is staying over with other grand daughter to help me decorate for Thanksgiving. I'm making them a white cake to make things look cheerier! Gona get them a pack of things to put on the cake and my grand son will be helping me cook. He is 13. He knows his way around a kitchen!

I too have always had the same problem!!!!! We have talked about this before!
My nick name is NiteOwl.........The Melatonin..changed all that for me. One thing about the Mel....Heather if you take it too early it will wear off....I found that out the hard way. And it takes a time for it to start working.....months...before I started to fall asleep before DH!
Also being around bright lights will stop you from falling asleep easy....

Hi ML,
I am so glad you are feeling sooooo good today.
Not carrying around all that extra weight will do that to you!
Good job!!!!!

I am so tired I can barley keep my eyes open and I have so many things I need to get done before Thursday!!

When I did finally get to sleep last night I was awakened with at terrible inter thigh leg cramp. For me it is 10 times worse than cramps I get in my calf or foot. My husband tried to help me walk it out. After that I was too afraid to fall back asleep so I went, made the morning coffee and gave up on sleep. I am taking my magnesium so I don't know what is going on. I have a gut feeling that the potassium from a banana will cure me but I will not eat one. I have so much to do that I should not be here whining about it. I will most likely fall asleep in the car when I am waiting to pick up my DD from school this afternoon.

I was looking forward to Thanksgiving so much, but I am now feeling overwhelmed with all I need to do and with my total lack of energy.

Ater a while she was just drifting off so I left. She knew me right a way but she kept talking about my dad and her Mom and Dad as it they were still alive. I just smile and say yes. I have stopped telling her again and again that they have all passed away years ago.

Thanks so much for asking ML
