Bunco Night with the girls was a blast. I learned that I need to make sure I eat or I will snacks galore. I had a protein bar and Milk which obviously didnít satisfied me at all. So I am learning a lot I won most Buncos Ė my goodie bag was Carmel Kiss Coffee bag, 3 dove chocolates, two kitchen towels -red & white-said love, kitchen shears tugged in a cute little reusable tote bag. Simple things all that I could use, havenít opened up the coffee yet but hoping to do so next week!

This was a very quiet day for me I got up and did coffee with the girls and they were awesome. I really needed their encouragement considering that my water retention was awful I had already gained about 6# and it was driving me nuts. I know I am more than the number on the scale but know this isnít normal and you can tell if you look at both my legs something is wrong. What really got to me is how my doctor when he called me back was very dismissive about it needless to say I fired his butt that day. I havenít been happy the past 18 mos. With him yes had no problem starting getting names from my friends. I adjusted to just eating a lot more greens and leaner meats for the rest of the weekend and found ways to cook without any added sodium!! Crockpot tomorrow dinner Ė pot roast and added no sodium just used fresh herbs and tons of natural aromatic veggies like celery carrots bell peppers , onions, turnips, mushrooms potatoes sweet and reds I put it on at 9pm and oh getting up to the smells were awesome oh and used about a cup of red wine and Dijon garlic mustard. Very nice!

Well topped in with a total of 8# up in water weight my legs hurt to be touched and couldnít even get my ring on. This is not good but just kept doing. I made tuna wraps with lettuce for lunch and all was good!

Rough day Ė boss getting ready to go on vacation so was extremely busy no time for anything in that 9.5 hour day. Went to therapy during lunch and that went really well. I finished the day with exercise and very light salad and soup for dinner while I watched biggest loser with hubby. I did make an appointment to see my new doctor on 3/7/2013 and try to figure out what the heck is wrong with my body, just choosing health now.

Well all my hard work an perseverance prevailed I lost most of the water weight this week all but 1.2 to get back to where I was at 2 weeks ago so hoping I can shake the rest off and it will show next week. I am really busting my tail working out!!! Heck I went out a lunch time and gave it my all it was actually fun, just hate the sweaty feel afterwards at workÖ but that is what deody and powder can do for you to keep you feeling fresh after a lunch time workout lol.

Found out my insurance is not going to pay for my 14 week workshop for therapy, will be making phone calls to see if there is a workaround or why not. If not I will use my Flex spending account card I will make the best of it this way. I have to remind myself that this is an investment towards me!! Also, figuring which friends are takers and removing them from my life. I don't think it is fair when things get one sided. Funny I am realizing how much more my self worth is to not deal with this.

So far my day is on track and exercise will happen as I have a date with my husband to work out tonight-keeping a healthy heart we called it. emoticon
Had an awesome workout in the pool river channel walk i jogged against the current feels like good crosstraining for the half in September. I'm so excited registration has now opened as well.

PS i spoke with my insurance looks like if it's coded and described right it will go through. Now waiting to speak with provider.

    Glad you had the courage to "fire" your doctor. Hope your new one will be good for you.

Insurance stuff can be so tricky -- amazing that everything depends on what code is put down.

Love seeing all the emoticon

    Love, love, love the last photo on the post! We are more than that number, but gosh darn, it sure does feel good to control that number doesn't it! emoticon

Glad you're getting the medical stuff figured out. My doc of 15 years moved to Seattle (she IS fabulous so if you're in Seattle and need someone I'd HIGHLY recommend her!) and I saw the new one this week. She was 'okay', so my shopping around will continue I think - good luck on your search for someone new.

Hang in there Em - not only are you more important than that number, you're also WORTH more than that number!

Woke up and weighed myself found myself with a water gain but i know i'm hormonal and took it with stride this is big normally i would sabbotage and just say F' it and do what ever eat what ever but i decided to let it go that it wasn't worth the bad energy. I went about my day and continue my plan and ate well when i went to my TOPS group i took it and reminded myself and peers that the scale doesn't define me and that I had other success this past week. 1. Got past my treadmill fear 2. walk/jogging now on the treadmill or street 3. my portions are doing well and i'm not feeling deprived i have been very satisfied at all meals. So with that said I felt good about me.

    Oh, how lovely to have a hubby who comes with a good foot massage! Doesn't get any better than that! I myself am battling that darn scale so I fully appreciate your approach! We're so much more than a number on a scale! emoticon

I am very proud of myself for making me important and making it to 60 days of not binging. Last year 397 and then i struggled but i have learned alot in that time - the time i was struggling and having flashbacks i was only counting on counseling but not using my writing techniques to help me through it. So now that journal comes with me everywhere and i'm feeling better. Next hurdle is my portion control and deprevational feeling.

    I'm just delighted by your progress! The binge-free streak, and the understanding of the power of journaling--and the support technique of having a journal with you at all times is so wise and aware!

More veggies to fill you up with their natural fiber and nutrients is emoticon
Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon

Had another awesome day just pushing hard on it and working with myself to keep this moving along... not a diet just a lifestyle no counting no weighing just smaller plates and soup with each meal or salad to fill me up... just going with the flow. Gonna do some sits up reading and then to bed.

Trying to get to 60 days binge free almost there!!
