I quit signing in, I even lax up on my eating , not enough to cause too much trouble. I go up maybe 5 pounds and stop and say whoa!!! I just love to splurge once in awhile and from what I understand , I can compare it to a alcoholic , one wrong snack and , can't stop, but I do when I hit the 5 pounds up in weight. That seems to be the "magic" number to get my attention. <em>245</em> Later for sure...... Tue, 29 May 2012 08:30:45 EST Me again Nothing new here, still taking one day at a time. Have a great day and I won't be all gloom and doom (hopefully ) , Thank You all. <em>304</em> Mon, 9 Apr 2012 08:27:21 EST Happy Easter I am still on the path to getting back on track.

The time you take to leave the advice or comment , <BR> I am starting the 3rd. day on my way back to being strict on myself. I do good for awhile , then I feel like I deserve a small treat. Thanks <em>41</em> Sun, 8 Apr 2012 10:03:55 EST Thanks for letting me blow off steam!!! I have to get a mind set and I think I have it back . I did good yesterday and my aim is to do the same today.

Thank all of you for the comments and advice , it helps knowing someone took the time to reply with the good comments. <BR> God Bless, to all . <em>43</em> Sat, 7 Apr 2012 08:47:47 EST Help, I am failing !!! I have managed to hold my weight at a even spot for several years, Now it seem's to be going up in the last few weeks. Only about 5 pounds , but by this point I need to stop. I have been good at doing this several times, I enjoy a binge here and there, and then get serious and come back down to at least maintenance weight, I can live with. Why now does it scare me so? I know I can do it, just a certain mind set. <em>230</em> <BR> Thanks for letting me blow off steam, maybe it will help???... Thu, 5 Apr 2012 09:20:34 EST
