    I'm still eating low-carb, high protein and good fats, no sugar. The only thing that's changed really is I'm getting past that mentality where if I have a day where I'm not going to stay under 1550 calories I would use it as an excuse to binge for the rest of the day and 'start again tomorrow.' I've started tracking everything even when I go over, and focusing more on the weekly totals rather just the daily. I learned this from someone I've been following, OVERDUECHANGE, who's lost over 100 pounds. She has a great attitude towards how to stick to it over the long haul.

    Tore the muscle while lifting my suitcase into the overhead bin on my plane trip back from Maine - daughter was in a much different row and I didn't think to stop and ask someone else to help. Will never do this again, even if I have to check luggage! Then I aggravated it a lot more in my exercise class so now I'm not going there for several more weeks until it's completely healed.

    Another thing I've been doing lately, I often get a treat while grocery shopping, and it's always been a problem to find one in a small serving. I've begun eating let's say two portions of sweet potato chips or two sugar-free icecream bars out of a package of 4, usually in the car on my way home, and then immediately when I get home throwing the rest away. And when I throw it away I remove it from the package and add it directly to my trash so I can't change my mind. I decided not to feel guilty about throwing away food, my rationale is it's junk food and not nutricious anyway.

    Oh I rewrite a *lot* as I go. That's the beauty of email and all the online communication, people don't see the first thing I blurt out. I like the phrase "irresponsible eating".

    No, I don't do any writing for myself. Back in the days before email I had friends I corresponded with in long letters which were sort of like essays we shared with each other - a lost art these days. But I could not create a story with a plot to save my life. I don't understand how people do that, or write songs either.

    It's always motivating so see someone getting on a roll and losing weight, so I'm watching you!

    I did write for a while, when I was in my small town in Ohio at one point I got laid off from a graphics job and got hired laying out the pages at the local newspaper. I soon was doing a lot of copy-editing because it bothered me when things weren't well written, and then the editor let me start writing some stories. I ended up being a reporter for four years. I specialized in profile-type interviews of local people, and in a way it was very much like painting a portrait. It paid terribly though and I eventually went back to graphics at a good company.
