Did Not Weigh

Dinner last night was at my parents house, and I had the following:
1.5 hamburger patties
salad w/ cheese and ranch dressing
few pieces raw broccoli with ranch/dill dip
flax muffin
smoked sausage w/ bbq sauce

Today's Plan: Fasting until at least 2 PM
coffee w/ hwc and sf torani
coffee w/ hwc or low sugar cocoa w/ hwc
????

I'm not sure what dinner will be yet. I have most of our things packed up for our trip to Dallas. Ant will be over sometime after he gets out of school and when I get home from work. I still need to get my work wrapped up, and I will need to get some bottled water for my baby's bottles. I called my brother up last night to let them know that we will be in the Dallas area and to see when he worked. He is off Saturday and Sunday, so hopefully on our way back home we can stop and spend time with them. I can't wait! I hate that it takes somebody passing away for us all to get together. Both myself and my ex need to be more proactive about seeing our families.

I've been off low carb since the trip. I am back to business now though.

Yesterday I ate some delicious pork carnitas that I had marinated and cooked over the weekend. I'm going to hit up the store tonight and buy more, that's how good they were. I also need to pick up some soy sauce to make the marinade.

Today's food plan:
B- vienna sausages
L- BBQ and salad
D- Cheesy Southwestern Taco Soup

I met this really nice guy Charlie. We are going out on a platonic basis. He knows all the drama with B. It's the first time I've gotten to know a guy this way. Should have learned it in high school, huh? LOL
Taking it really really really slowly, going to pay attention to any red flags this time around...

Food Today:
B- Southwestern Cheesy Taco Soup
L- Summer sausage, cheddar cheese, egg salad
D- Pork and Beef Fajitas w/ low carb tortillas, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, taco sauce

I went to the doctor yesterday afternoon, and I won't even say how much I weighed LOL. I realize I have to stick to LC, even if I'm not losing like I want, because to go in the other direction is such a WASTE OF TIME...

Anyways, I'm not going to go too low carb anymore. I'm going to eat tortillas and some other higher carb fares to keep me from feeling like it's all or nothing.

Good idea! I still have to figure out what I want to do. I hate not fitting in my clothes, but it's sooo nice to have BOOBS back. LOL

C & I went out for Vietnamese last night, shared a bottle of wine, laughed had a good time. He's out of town working the next 2 or 3 days, then back for the weekend. Don't have plans yet. Met this woman my age interested in meditation. She has tickets to this play on Thursday, so I'll meet her and get to go tomorrow.....

I feel the same... I don't like being this weight and especially clothing size, but I have an ass now and know I won't when I lose (boobs aren't going anywhere lol).

I'm glad you've found some new friends... that's really awesome!! Have fun at the play. That slide you went on looks scary!

Today's Food:
B- Cheesy Southwestern Soup
L- Fajitas
D- not sure yet

Boneless skinless chicken thighs were buy one pkg get one free the other day... I bought two and got two free... now I'm wondering if I shouldn't have gotten more... that is a damn good deal.

Tomorrow is our company summer party. It's being held at a local swimming pool, and I also am getting our food catered this year. The guys doing the catering are bringing their grilling truck and cooking all you can eat catfish and hamburger plates. Yummy. I know my daughter can't wait to go... she loves the summer party. If I could win the 42" flat panel TV, I'd be soooo

Today's Food Plan:
B- Cheddar Cheese, Summer Sausage, 1 deviled egg
L- Deviled eggs, steak
D- Hamburger and whatever else i can eat at company party that is LC (nothing LOL)

I spoke to one of my best friends last night on the phone for about 2 hours. She told me she is at her highest weight ever and she does not feel good. She has hypoglycemia and body aches and swelling, and of course she eats SAD. She knows I lost a lot of weight before using a low carb diet, and I hope I can help motivate her. She asked that I text her each day and tell her what I'm eating, and she will do the same. I'm going to email her all the Atkins info I can. I wish she still lived here instead of Pennsylvania... it would make things easier! lol.

One of the guys I work with told me that if he won the 42" flat panel, that he would give it to me. Here's to hoping!!

How many days nicotine free are you on? I'm still smoking...
I stopped again in the afternoon on Sunday. So this will be my second full day without. I'll send you a message on facebook.

Made it through my third day of not smoking, dealing with all the B stress today is a miracle. I requested that my journal be deleted and it's already gone. High emotions about the B situation of the last two days, lost my head a bit. I'll do a new one once I've got my "shat" together. I'm eating high carbs, but staying away from the junk. Weight surprisingly seems to be down tonight. Thanks for listening C.

Cass,

You are doing amazing but Amber is so right the smoking must come to an end. Both of my parents smoked growing up but thank goodness, I didn't develop the habit.

You can do it Lord knows it is difficult but it can be done!!! We are all cheering you on sweetie!!!

It's the most difficult addiction I've ever broken... I thought I had it beat the last time I quit for over a year.

Thank you for the encouragement sweetie! I am never going to quit trying. I want my children to learn from me.... I know my 9 year old daughter wants me to quit.

Think of the money, our health our skin, our face wrinkles, we wont stink, our hair will smell nice, so many good reasons and most of all our children!

Those are good reasons. I think about them daily. I feel bad now spending money on something that I know is diminshing my quality of life and possibly my life period.

My Mom had to take one of her dogs to the vet to be put to sleep. I will miss Precious. She was a sweet Pekingnese, and I spent years of my childhood with her. She had arthritis in her back, and her hearing was gone. Recently she could hardly walk, and for the past few days she could not walk at all and she just lay in the same place all day. Last night she barked constantly Mom said. She called the Vet at home, and he said she may have experienced a series of mini strokes and her mind may be going. Sweet Precious, I know you are in Heaven now and not suffereing. My Mom is so sad.

It is hard, especially for my Mom. She is an animal lover and still has 4 dogs at home. I don't have pets... the biggest reason is I don't want to see them pass on. I'm sorry for your cousin too.

I went ahead and spent $93 on an Electronic Cig starter kit. I can't wait till it gets here. I hope it is the answer for me.
