Good for you Denise! I hope you find some nice guys to have fun with!

My date did not happen. I spoke to him at around 3:30 PM on Saturday, and I told him I would call him in a couple hours or so after I did a few things with my parents. He had a small procedure done earlier Saturday, and his leg was hurting, so I was going to go to his house rather than him come to mine. I called him a little before 7 and he didn't answer. I called again and texted him with nothing. My ex watched my son for me, and I needed to get out and enjoy an evening without kids, so I called up a friend and made plans to meet her. Aug (guy I'm dating) called me at 9:30 and asked why I hadn't called LMAO. I was like I've called four times! Well, he deleted the Google Voice number he has been using because he didn't get any of my calls or my text. He said to go out and have fun, so that's what I did. I went clubbing with my friends.... drank too much, SMOKED CIGS!!!!, and danced my azz off.

Smoked cigs yesterday too. But, I'm back on it today. I'm not going to let a little blip be an end all be all. I had so much fun with my friend. I grew up with her, but I hardly see her nowadays. She's a blast to hang out with.

My ex came over yesterday, and we watched the game and played COD with DD. It was nice, BUT I'm starting to have a harder time when he's around dealing with wanting just to reach out and touch him like old times. We have kind of talked about laying everything out there on the table and seeing if we could reconcile. He's the only man I've ever loved, and I don't see myself with anyone else still. Damn it's hard to know what to do. We have had so many problems, but for some reason my dumb heart speaks louder than my head so I forget those things and just want our family back together.

Weight today: 207 lbs

Food has not been great. I've been on plan except for drinking some beer and liquor Saturday night. I did eat at restaurants Friday for lunch and Saturday for dinner. I know the steak I had was marinated in a sweet mixture because my meat and veggies were sweet. Sunday I had a nasty hangover and only ate bacon wrapped jalapenos for dinner.

Today's Plan:
B- Coffee and water
L- Grilled Chicken Salad with Ranch
S- SF Pudding
D- Not sure yet but I did go to the store over the weekend

Oh hun, not the smokes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dump the smokes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You were doing so good!!! OMG men, I swear!!!! Well I Can understand you wanting to be with the ex, maybe if he is receptive you take it really slow, I always think it is worth trying when kids are involved for sure!!! Lots going on emotionally for you this weekend, you will get it all back together, I know you will!!!! But lose the smokes, I would rather see you eat carbs than smoke!!!

I know Amber!!!! I totally fudged up with the cigs! I definitely can not go out to clubs or bars until I have some more time under my belt. Ex has said that we need to talk and lay it on the table. I have my reservations and so does he - the kids are happier when they see us together even my almost 1 year old seems to take notice and seems happier... I wish we could get it right.

I'm using the Ecig and haven't smoked today. But, I only have this last cartridge left... I hope my Aunt has a couple I can use until I get more in the mail.

You are kicking butt, and I thought of you and knew I had to get back at it!

Cass, you never know. You might reconcile with your ex. Take your time and see where things go. Either way, it is wonderful that you two get along so well for the sake of your kids. Kudos to both of you.

Thanks Gail for the positive thought! I don't talk about this with anyone in real life because they would not have anything positive to say about it.

I understand the ex thing Cass, you know what I've been going through with B. It's weird he still says he's waiting for me...but I talked to a woman he went out with and spent the day with a week ago. Hopefully he is finally letting go, huh?
I understand about the attraction. B was only 4 years younger than me (50) but looked like he was in his mid thirties...and super virile! LOL
Men my age all look craggly and probably all need viagra. It'll probably be a long while before I stop comparing. Never had passion like that before.....and I had "good stuff" in the past before him.....lol

Yeah Denise I know. The attraction will always be there between us too. Everyone I know always tells me how handsome he is even my grandma goes on about it lol. The attraction doesn't make up for the things our relationship lacked like communication. So, are you still seeing B or trying to get away from that? You can send me a fb message.

Hey now my old 50 year old is handsome, LOL!!!! It is tough hun this is a situation you are going to have to listen to your heart and your head and sometimes it is hard when the heart pulls harder! Of course for the kids it would wonderful, maybe some counseling? Have you tried that before? It is going to take serious work and having those kids is worth it!!! Yes hun I hate to say this, but we have smoke shops around here that sell the ecig cartridges, go into one and get them, you can do it, I know I can in no way be around smoking in a relaxing atmosphere like a bar or whatever, I have to stay far away but no kidding it is getting so much easier, but every day I have at least one time that an urge is so strong!!!

Dang that sucks Denise!

Amber, I don't want to be either! My 28th Bday is coming up in March - I hope to be totally free by then.

Well, I packed and brought my lunch today for work, and when I got here I remembered that I had ordered bbq catering for everyone today for a customer meeting. Ah well, I guess I can eat it tomorrow! Hopefully the BBQ meat isn't covered in BBQ sauce. I won't be able to eat the cole slaw or ranch beans, but I made sure to make a side salad an option too. Cobbler for dessert but that won't be hard to pass up since I don't like cobbler anyways lol.

Today's Plan:
B- Hood CC Choc Milk, Coffee w/ half n half (finally brought some to work)
L- Sliced Brisket, Smoked Sausage, Side Salad, String Cheese
D- Roasted Chicken Quarter with Green Beans and maybe a salad

I did check my weight today because I was worried about seeing a fairly high number since I drank over the weekend and figured my body would be holding on to water to make up for the dehydration. It was 207.5 though - I'm happy about that!

Looking for Support

I know this is an old Post but I'm new to the Low Carb. When I have time I want to read more of your post. How have you been making out. I'm starting to plan my meals and think about how I want to start a new exercise program.... maybe yoga or tichi. I'm hoping to be able to navigate back to this site. Have a good day.

Welcome BuffetLover. Check out the rest of the forum, and read around! There is a ton of good info and helpful folks to assist you on your journey!

Well, I won't be eating dinner tonight LOL. I totally had way to much food at lunch, but it was so good! I did have BBQ sauce and cole slaw. I can tell I had too much sugar because I feel kind of funny. Hate that!

A couple guys said screw it about the BL contest, and went ahead and gave our boss 5 bucks to add to the pot for next week lol.

Thanks TexasMommy...I'm getting alot of good info. Honestly, what caught my attention in this site is I saw Texas Mommie.. I have a very good friend that lives in Shelby County, Texas. It reminded me of her and your friend Bejewelme ...Hello to you... I like going to PA. I took a friend last summer. We visited the shops. I'm going to go out for a walk now. It is beautiful outside.

Ok Denise, I will get on there later! I am still smoking. I really hope I get my cartridges in today. I learned a lesson not to get low on them without ordering more. Are you going to use any aids or go cold turkey? The Ecig works for me, but I'm still very addicted to nicotine.

I didn't eat any supper yesterday to offset my large and higher carb lunch.

Weight this morning: 207 lbs

Today's Plan:
B- half slice bacon, coffee w/ h&h, sweetnlow
L- Salad w/ fajita chicken, guacamole, ranch dressing, cheddar
D- Roasted Chicken Quarter, green beans, salad
S- SF pudding if needed

I've done something to my back/neck. I think I did it while sleeping a few nights ago, but for the past three nights I wake at least a dozen times in pain. So, even though I went to sleep early and got around 9 hours I still feel freakin tired. I have some old muscle relaxers, but I hate taking them because I always wake really tired after taking them too.

DS's 1st birthday is Saturday. Man time flies! I bought him a dresser and a radio flyer wagon that arrived at Wally World for pickup. The wagon was over $100 but cheaper than another one I looked at. Well, when picking it up, WM said it had gone on sale and they credited my card back $60!!! WOW, I gotta say, that is awesome!!!

Down a pound but I'm sure it's because I had a few shots last night. I thought (sometimes I should just some "thinking") I would drink a few and maybe I would be able to sleep all night. Well, that didn't work out so well. I woke up at 2 AM after falling asleep at 11 PM, and I couldn't go back to sleep until almost 4:30 AM. Needless to say, I'm tired again today.

Anywho - Supper last night was just the roasted chicken quarter. Man was it good, I'm going to say the best chicken I've ever made... even better than Mayo chicken which I love too.

Today's Food Plan:
B- 3 eggs fried in oil, coffee, hnh, sweetnlow
L- Leftover Chicken Quarter, green beans
D- Not Sure Yet

I know what ya mean guys smoking just makes everything reek! I only wash my hair 2 to 3 times per week, so I'm still dealing with smoker hair LOL.

I did take a muscle relaxer last night, and I got about 10 hours of sleep... my neck is KILLING me this morning, and I am tired WTH!!!!

Tony and I will be talking about our relationship, things we want, and so on Saturday after Jax's birthday party. I'm ready to get my feelings out there, and I'm nervous at the same time... plus I have butterflies because ***TMI my body yearns for him LOL. We haven't kissed in about 6 months. Okay, enough of that.

Weight today: 207

Dinner last night was a mayo/parm chicken breast with salad w/ ranch, 1 hb egg, cheddar.

Today's Plan:
B- 1 chicken breast w/ kraft light BBQ sauce, cheddar, coffee
L- Not sure... supposed to be meeting our sister plant coordinator in a town an hour away, but not sure yet
D- Again not sure

I was extra hungry yesterday, and I'm feeling the same today. I'm just going to keep it LC and eat till I'm satisfied. Maybe because I'm starting to get sick, my body is trying to get the energy it needs to help fight it off.

Food over the weekend was good. I did drink liquor, but I didn't eat any of my son's birthday cake. My poor Mom who's doing LC too ate some on Saturday, and came back over on Sunday and ate more LOL. That is why I didn't even eat one tiny bite... I know that would never be good enough.

Today's Plan:
drink lots of water
B- 2 hamburger patties topped with cheddar, jalapenos, dill relish, mustard, LC ketsup
L- Roast beef, A1 Sauce, cheddar
D- Not sure yet, but I guess I should eat some veggies LOL
