maybe you can try some L-glutamine for cravings?

If I tried to fix my cravings with carbs, boy would I be in trouble everyone is different though.

Maybe you can try 30 grams carbs but more from veggies vs.. treats

Olivia I am right there with you ... I cannot get motivated right now and keep sabotaging myself. The mindset just isnt' there. I know I can do this, but tonight we ordered pizza (and I had two slices) then followed that with a candy bar. Why do I do this???? I was good for two days and then I fall again.

I've previously sabotaged myself too. We all need to figure out how to stop ourselves from doing this. Hmm.

Miss Olivia, my grandmother always said to be wary of anyone with only one solution to a problem. I think your rethinking and replanning is so wise and strong, and I completely get what you mean about instead of deny , deny,deny, splurge, just spread a little more out consistently. Sounds sound!! lol

Hope you and Ammie and Lawmom have a great day tomorrow. I wish I knew what makes some weeks good and then a week like you gals are having now. God know 2 weeks ago I was where you are and you all pulled me back in . So for what its worth, Im thinking of you all.. Lizzie

Thank you Lizzie! Food issues are kinda at the bottom of my real issues at this time. Of course the issues are all the reasons I continue to sabatoge myself.

I'm having financial, emotional and all kinds of stressful situations going on right now. We just moved here in January and we are now moving out of this place again over the weekend. Very Suddenly I might add. I thought we'd at least have another few weeks. The owner luckily let us out of our agreement and we are now in the middle of selling what is left of our belongings to make due in the mean time. Not only that we have no where to go as of bieng booted out of here on Sat. I know this is alot to put out there but its whats literally eating at me for the last 3 days. lol...sad part about all of this. I tallied up what we had left of our belongings and if we sold what we have left to sell and for what we can be able to get for the things...we are only worth about $800.

That hurts even thinking about too!

Anyways......Don't know what else to say....that's the jest of whats going on right now!

Olivia: I am so sorry things are not going well for you right now. Things will get better. The power of prayer is an amazing thing. Also, there is a reason why we go through these types of times (even if we don't understand it right now). I am praying for you and your family. xoxoxo!

lol.....Ammie..your so funny! He's got people up in oregon border cali/oregon. Don't know if I'm up to "wandering"...but that was an option too.

I have 1 more day to really figure this out. I have been so overwhelmed with thoughts and emotions the last few days, that I cannot even begin to think of the last thing that came into my mind as its just being pushed out by the next fleeting thought. I feel so overly consumed and blank at the same time if that makes sense.

Yes Tara....All things happen for reasons that really are beyond any of our control. I just feel helpless when I abso. have no ways or means of a solution to this. There always is a solution to a problem. Unfortunatley, this one is proving to not show one as of yet! I'm very hopeful though!

OMG!! Miss G , of course this is the last thing you need to be concerned wiith...and for what it is worth, my thoughts are with you..It doesnt change anything, but 20 years ago my husband and I were down to 78 cents..no lie. My husband got a job driving truck so wed have a place to sleep! I know the blank yet consumed feeling, and as hard as it is to imagine, this too will pass.

Hoping you find your new place soon, Lizzie

Hi guys!

Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting me! I'm looking into some alternate resources right now so hopefully it will help us out. If not, then at least I tried.

....................

We had all our things packed on Sat ready to move out from here. The owner came by and said he felt bad for rushing us out and knowing we had no where to go with the kids. so He gave us til the 11th. Next friday. Although that was a blessing to us, I could deeply feel the bitterness he had behind doing so.

Even though he has let us out of our agreement, If we had the money to pay June's rent he would have to take since we are legally bound by agreement til July. However, he has already posted the ad for the place to be rented by June 13th So he really wants us out. He legally cannot refuse the rent if it is paid but at the same time since we cannot afford the rent right now we have no choice but to go. It's just a very confusing situation and highly problematic.


.....ANYWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!

lol.....Stayed op somewhat this last week finally got on the scale this morning. 3lbs down for this last week. Cool...seeing that things have been ugly and tom is here.

I went through my own lil personal store of remaing items I have left from selling on ebay last year. I have tons of crap I need to sell off. clothing,makeup and beauty supplies and all kinds of other things. We had powerseller status and due to 1 bad batch of items we ordered and did not recieve caused us to lose tons of revenue and our reputation. So I'm sitting on lots of items which I cannot turn over since I have no avenues of doing so. Craigslist just does not work.

Anyways....I was rummaging through my makeup supplies and totally forgot about this big lot of mac products I invested in from another seller on ebay to resale and I have tons of goodies.

All this in looking for my haircolor boxes I had stored away...lol.

Oh how I loved the times I was a seller on ebay. I miss those days. I kept me busy and well profits were good!

~Rant finished~
