Know that you are doing things to take care of you and your well-being. Be well and take care of yourself and know that we are all here.
I know you can relate b/c I've seen you post about having to pull away from your family in the past. I know that my dad needs help, but he's not willing to get it right now and he just keeps hurting us. Work is stressful enough without having to deal with his crap, too. Thanks for your words!

Thank you, lady!

I had gotten up to 223 something a few days ago, but I've determined to start tracking food intake again...was 220.6 today, so at least it's going down again. I am such a creature of habit when it comes to turning to food as a coping mechanism!

I hope you all are having a good weekend. I'm working evening shift all weekend...boo, hiss! LOL. Talk to you later...

Thanks, Shari! I need to do wayyyy better on the eating front, but I'm trying not to stress myself out more than necessary because it just reactivates the cycle. I do need to hit the grocery store, however, because I've been eating a lot of convenience food again.

TOM is here...woo friggin' hoo. LOL. I'm off tomorrow and Saturday, so I'm looking forward to my days off. I have a blind date tomorrow evening, and I'm going to a local Fall festival on Saturday with Mom.

Morning, all! 217.8 this morning...yay! Wanted to break 218 this week, so that's accomplished. My mini-goal is 210, since my last low was 211.8.

Bought some stuff at a discount place called Ollie's, so at least I have a little "good" food before payday.

Ok, so I've mentioned this before, but I really want to do it this time: I want to give up sodas altogether. I am still going to flavor my water & drink tea, but I want to kick this habit. I drink way too much of it for my liking.

Congrats!! I've unfortunately began drinking diet sodas now. It helps to not grab something sweet when I get a craving...choosing the lesser of two evils LOL. I know you can do it!!

So, date #2 went fine and we texted/e-mailed every day, but then it fizzled out. LOL. Oh well...what can you do? One thing that I thought was kinda funny...he called his best friend his "bestie" multiple times. O_O

Dating is so...interesting (for lack of a better word).

Not sure what my weight is at the moment...haven't stepped on the scale in about a week or so. Probably around 220 though. I need to buckle down.

I have been successful in not drinking sodas, however. I haven't had any since 10/24...Woot Woot!

Oh, most definitely, dating can be annoying! I think I've got a nice one now though. He's in the Coast Guard (there's every branch of military here, LOL).

Wellll...doing terribly on the weight front. I weighed friggin' 224.4 this morning! Ughhhhhh! TOM should end today or tomorrow, so hopefully I lose a little bit of water weight. I am really flopping with the eating though. I get so irritated with myself.

My new guy cooks a lot, so I've asked him to start showing me how to make some things. He said I need to eat more regular meals/at regular times, which is true b/c my eating schedules sucks and my blood sugar crashes constantly.
