Thank God Ang, eat a damn cookie and enjoy it! We are women we love sweets I seriously ate enough malitol to choke a horse everyday I did low carb, everyday I shoved in sugar free candy and I liked it, then I got sick of it, and hardly ever eat it now, I burned myself out on it! It will be the same with the desserts which is a good thing, if you allow them you will find you don't want them after awhile, that is how we are when we are so rigid and place all this restriction on ourselves we get whiny and think I want it, and I must have it, so knowing you can have it is OK! Pick out some things that look yummy, bake up a storm and then everyday at 4 or whatever when you get the munchies and get hungry make a cup of joe and sit there and relax and enjoy it, savor it and then look forward to tomorrows treat, there is nothing wrong with that!!! Just freeze everything so you dont eat it all, but you have self control you are not going to just eat sweets all day you are a badger now!!!

Love ya, Ambs! Life is fluid and weird, I just need to be a little fluid and weird, too, I guess. I won't be snacking on the desserts, I'll have a genuine snack of veg and meat if needed-- the dessert thing is just a once a week treat thingy. I can certainly go a week before I get to make another sweet thing.

I agree that words like "never again" are alarming and disturbing and make ME want to rebel. You've got to have a plan that's flexible enough to actually work, and being *perfect* in the very long term is a recipe for failure. When you have to be perfect, if you're not perfect, you think "ok, I'm not perfect any more, so I'll just binge..."

I think this is why hcg has worked so well for me. It's very limited. You do it for three weeks or 40 days, and then you stop doing it for a while. Then if you want to, you do it another time. And so on. I cannot maintain my focus on something that requires me to do it for the foreseeable future, or God forbid, FOREVER!

Anyway, all that is to say that I believe that in order to have longterm success, you've gotta learn to roll with the punches. I think Amber is an OUTSTANDING example. She has changed plans, tried new things, tweaked the details over and over to get as far as she's gotten. But she never, ever gives up.

Eyes on the prize, Angela. Change things up when you need to--just keep on working on it.

Food..

I know I'm only a 'lurker" and sometime
writer, I think your right in adding a snack

Reading and seeing your photos, they look
good but I always thought maybe your not
eating enough food. Sometimes I would
think, she should have a big salad with that.

Remember the saying..You have to eat to lose!
Because you should have been losing more with
what your were eating. Think that's why your
burnout. Your doing great but not enough food.
Need more food/low carb of course.

I see you trying so hard, This is my opinion only,
I'm pulling for you. Us women have to care/wish
the best for each other.

OMG this is so true!! Roll with it!!1 That's how this works for life.
I could not have read this at a more perfect time. I was full of anxiety about EVERTHING yesterday. I get myself into these states ( I am not proud to admit it) and I get completely off on a tangent and obsessed. Next time that happens...this will be my mantra!! Repeat 10 times "Life is fluid and weird, I just need to be a little fluid and weird too"

Ang, you have done so well, and worked so hard! I think it is good to have a treat to look forward to each week! I'm not so much into the sweet things as I am bread - that is my "treat". I go out to a restaurant about once a week or every other week and have a roll or biscuit with a ton of butter on it. I savor every bite of it and don't feel guilty.
Trying to be "perfect" is such a burden and can't be maintained.

Good morning! Thank you, Ladies! You always know how to make me feel like I'm worth something.

SO, I am on a strict internet diet. I have another ten or so minutes before I have to shut down. I am just too much of a time wasting moron and need to get busy with real life stuff-- you know, husband, son, house, my business-- little stuff like that was getting lost in my big internet addiction. Seriously, I lose hours and hours here and get nothing done.

But, not to worry, I am NOT off the wagon, and I am NOT giving in, and I am NOT disappearing. I will still post photos and report for challenges and get in here at least once a day, but I just can't spend the time it really takes me to comb through and really respond to people and their journals the way I like to. So, sorry about that, the love is still here, but I reeeeeeaallly need to take care of real life stuff. I wonder why it is so hard for me? Others are far more busy than I am and manage it. I don't seem to be managing well. I think I missed the class in my youth that taught me how to do it all with effortless style. There was a class, right? I really missed out.

Okay, time to shut it down. See you tonight after I read to my son! (We just finished Edward Tulane and I was totally bawling at the end. I was so choked up I couldn't even read it, so my son--who apparently hasn't developed empathy yet-- had to read the last half page to me. What a powerful story, so beautifully written!)

I totally understand. I was so seriously addicted to an AOL chatroom back in the late 90s--a book discussion room, amazingly, that my kids STILL tease me about how they'd stand in front of me and yell "MOM! MOM! MOM!" and I wouldn't even hear them. Embarrassing, in retrospect, and there's no way I can deny it. It happened.

Family must come first, always.

And Amber, they'd be crazy NOT to use you for advertising. You are a walking Atkins miracle, girl!

YAY! CAPE!

I had such a day, I yoyoed all over the place running errands-- how do you ladies do it? I have no idea why everything was all scheduled on the same day-- but, it's all done now, and I'm ready for a steak dinner.

Good morning ladies! going to be a packed weekend. Today we are driving south to the First Nation's Pow Wow, I have such a soft spot for Native American costume and dancing and music and artwork-- should be a fabulous day. But, I'm still here and fine and checking in! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, too!
