OK, not a great start for me! Was away this weekend at a conference with DH where all meals were provided, including open bar so I definitely overdid it! Damage is done but good news is that I was back on track yesterday morning and am doing well today. Hope to get rid of the 2.5 lb gain plus one more this week.

Congrats to Misti, Freeman and Tasha on your losses!
Mobird, Keytones - Hope you guys have a better week (me too)!

Thanks krazykat. I have trouble with free food. My joke is free food has no calories! I find that I end up feeling deprived if I don't partake, so, it is just something I have to deal with. I am getting by in the office with the one bite - a lot of the thin women around the office will get out a knife and just cut off a bite of a muffin or whatever, so I don't stick out there. Not sure what I would do with a week-long conference of free food. Ugh.

I'm doing OK. It's just TOM and I haven't been dieting hard with a bad sprain (deprivation and pain don't mix - another joke I have). Yesterday was the first day that the ankle really felt like it was getting better, and today is better yet. I managed to shake a horrible craving last night for something really, really wicked to eat. I killed it with a blueberry smoothie! Whew.

I'm going shopping tonight!!!

Onward!!!

Thinking the scale was off last Tues. since my next couple days it read higher, so not going to be upset.

Free food is tough. I probably had 10-20 on me from that! Face palm!

Margaret, sorry you had the scare and glad your people are OK.

I just found out that the counselor that leads my grief group knows the hiker that is missing and probably gone--that was his dentist. So sad. Apparently, he was a seasoned athletic hiker who competed in Ironman triathalons. Oh, you guys probably haven't heard. There was an avalanche in the Cascades in Washington. A woman not with him didn't make it.

The hard thing about being in a young widows' grief group is you keep hearing these awful stories of people in the prime of their lives that get wiped out, just like that.

The thing that I struggle with is, I wish I could have been happier and appreciated life more before. I know you always hear something like hug your loved ones. But seriously, life is for living, enjoy your loved ones, make them happy, and be happy. Whatever you are fretting is not important.

Our counselor tells us that is what came out of his experience. He has learned to appreciate life now that his wife is gone. Sad, but true.

Thanks for the kind words of support everyone. My poor son is till a bit shaken up (and he wasn't even near the bombing locations) - nothing like having your innocence and sense of normalcy stolen away at the age of 20.

Margaret: I'm so glad your son and friends are ok. As a runner myself I'm just so pissed, but more than that, I worry all the time about my own kids and my students.

KT: you are so right that we need to be mindful not to waste time fretting about unimportant things or being too hard on ourselves or our loved ones.

Krazy Cat: thanks for the words of encouragement this week.

Welcome Faith! Hugs to all!

Been really trying since Sunday (calling Sunday a restart). Haven't lost much weight BUT-

1. My knees feel better.
2. My back is not screaming at me every morning.
3. My GERD is so much better

What am I doing differently?
1. Doing a 16 hour a day fast (eat between 12 Noon and 8 PM)
2. Drinking more water
3. Not snacking mid afternoon or after dinner
4. Allowing myself to be hungry

TTYL,
Janice

Margaret, I'm happy that you and yours are safe.

Scale is being a bit wonky today but I got the same reading three times in a row. My dad was here this weekend and we ate out quite a bit, so I'll take what I can get! Looking to have a clean week and end the month at a new low.

Back to where I was 2 weeks ago. Will try my best to end April with a decent loss.
Kitty, Misti & Faith - WTG on the losses, guys!!
Freeman, Mobird, Keytones - Status quo is better than gaining but I know that this coming week will be your week!! Good luck!

Congrats to all you LOSERS!

Sorry I haven't been around. ... Busy visiting colleges and deciding on a final choice. I think we're finally there.
And DS2 will be much closer distance-wise than DS1.
...But...still...I'll be an emptynester in September...

I had a great week! I fully attribute to my new twice daily drink of diluted raw apple cider vinegar, plus plenty of fat bombs. I reached 50 lbs. lost in April, 5.5 months total.
