Happy DD Monica, me too. Thanks for coming by and giving me a boost, I appreciate it and I needed it. I'm calling my DD's from this day forward "Healing Days". After Juddd'ing for a year, and then dropping out, goodness knows why, but I realized this morning that I need a very positive word for what the deprivation every other day.

So have a great healing day.

I've heard Defending Jacob is good. I'm so late starting my book - still waiting for the library to find me a copy.

I book I read (The Overnight Diet) which has one day per week when you drink smoothies, calls it the Powering-up Day, because you are revving your body up. I'm such a sloth, that it sounds too energetic for me. Healing Day is nice.

It's FRIDAY EVE! I think that says it all! It's a DD. I am already starving. My MOJO is not here at all. I'm not taking much into work with me.....so I can't eat much. There won't be anything there. I think (assuming I don't eat a protein granola bar) all I will have is 350c (if I eat the bar, then 540c)

Hoping for the best. For me, DD's are never EASY. I can distract myself, drink tons of water, you name it.....my tummy still growls and I will start feeling weak by 11:00 if I just fast. Then a headache sets in.....then I get snippy. I'm a mess. That's why I do higher DD calories. I may never get to my DREAM weight of the 156 ( or 150anything!) But that's ok. Living the dream, right???

It was a great DD for me. About 650c in total. For me, that is incredibly good. My weight was up 2 pounds, not stressing over it. I will weigh in again next week sometime.

It's FRIDAY !!! I am so dang happy. We have a full weekend of softball games, VBS decorating, movies (going to see Monsters University), really FUN! I am excited. Supposed to be really hot, I guess SUMMER is truly here!

650 is an excellent achievement . Congrats. And quite right not to stress about the shift in weight. It could just about be anything .

Good job on 650 cal. It could be the summer heat can make us retain the water, thus 2 lb up.

I just can't believe how well he has done! You should be proud of him, and I hope he's feeling pretty proud of himself too!

We need a fistbump smiley - that'd be cooler for a kid right? (I'm so out of the loop)

DS14 is coming in hot just a few pounds away from me. I better pick up my game before he weighs less than me!

jokes aside, that is so so so awesome. I am sure you are over the moon and so proud of him and he should be of himself too!

Carol - I agree a fist pump would be great here! Thanks for following his progress. ONEderland for both of you , real soon, right???

Marika - I am very proud and tell him that every day. He is doing an amazing job. Heck, better than me!

OHCMB - He is very pleased. WE spoke about "goal" weight and he was clueless. He threw out 150 pounds and I was like, NO not that low. He said, I honestly don't know where I should be. He is probably 5'10", so I suggested we start with 185 and see how that goes. He thought that was doable, he hopes to be there by August/start of school.

Blonde - I hope you had a great Friday and fabulous weekend!

Hope - I've missed you girl! Glad to see you back.

Beth - thanks. Hope you had a good weekend!

I did have a good weekend. Though -- My Saturday turned into a mid day ----long story I won't go into. I was an emotional mess and was hungry! Plain and simple. Eating helped, so I have moved on. Today, goal is another 650c day. Let's start this week out right!!! Dusting off for a crazy week. VBS at church this week so each night we will all be there for 3 hours, for fun and such. It will all be good!

OH Danielle, not sure I am quite so able to keep moving!

It's Tuesday. VBS is in full swing. Yesterday's DD ended up more of 1000c. After my noon walk, my Bloodsugar tanked. It was kind of downhill from there on. GRRR We made meals out for today and tomorrow last night. That gets us to Thursday! Stepping in the right direction.

Hi Monica! I'm so sorry to read of the struggles emotionally and then with BG issues. UGH!! Why is it that food makes us feel so good when we are hurting?? I can so relate. I'm with Danielle in admiring your attitude and the way you pick yourself up and don't let one day that doesn't go as planned turn into some major setback.

I hope your day today is smooth as silk!
