There are 2 ways I think of myself physically speaking: as the girl with the beautiful ice blue eyes, or as that obese 44 year old woman she turned into who's depressed and eating junk food in front of the TV. If I remember that underneath the extra pounds I'm still that beautiful girl, then I believe I deserve to look like and feel like her again.

prior to joining SparkPeople I'd bounced from 227 down to 200 and back up to 217 over the first half of 2007 ...

Same as you. Too much homework. I live in front of the computer. Spark is my sanity break. I hate these classes this semester and can't wait to get them over with. I'm not behind, but I haven't started outlining yet either and that's giving me fits. I've also been preparing my application for admission to the bar, which in Ohio is due November 15 of your second year of law school. Now *that's* been fun! Try going back over 30 years to list every address you ever lived at! LOL I gained a few pounds over the summer and can't get rid of them. I have been trying to work out a little though, swimming and bike riding mostly. That also helps relieve some stress. Glad you made it back! But I certainly understand why you've been gone!

Hey Laurie, it's been... you know. Stuff. Sticking with my food plan. Down about 45 lbs since April, working with an OA sponsor. Issues with the kid. Too much homework. Basically no time to mess around on the internet so I haven't been "sparking" much. Trying to stay off email and facebook too. If I have time to sit at the computer I feel I should be spending it studying, since I'm always behind.

How are you?

Where does it say I'm student of the week? Is that why my picture is up on the NonTraditional Students forum? Cool! All I did was track my homework ;-)
