Good job, MORGANPARK! You know, I had forgotten all about Sunday's choice to not eat the biscuit--BUT if I had eaten it, I would still be beating myself up about it! So much easier this way ")

@Triciadisney. Congrats on abstaining from the biscuits. It's a really good feeling to have when you're in control of what you put in your mouth. And you're right, it's so temporary. I experienced that feeling today. My companion dived into the biscuits, while I watched. I was sooooo proud of myself. emoticon

i love rice cakes. If i get the mini-cakes, i can have 9 for only 70 calories. i love fruit. i know it is expensive, but i'm becoming more willing to spend just because my body needs to get healthy!

i also like to put a little popcorn kernels in a paper lunch bag, fold the top over a couple times, and pop it in the microwave (takes about 1 1/2 min. in mine). Spray with butter spray and its a great snack.

Hi LILBIRD,

We can help each other. I actually was able, for the first time ever, to pass up homemade biscuits at the Cracker Barrell restaurant. I told myself it would be gone in 3-4 bites, and all that would be left is the fat, calories and carbs. I watched my companions eat them, and decided I was not going to feel sorry for myself, that I was making the decision to help myself toward my goal of losing weight off my knees. And it was easier than I thought!
Each step we do right is a step in the right direction. Each time we do "wrong" is a learning opportunity.
We can do this!!

MORGANPARK,
Yes, it is hard. Especially now that my other knee (the unoperated one) has started having as much, or more pain than the operated one. Had Synvisc injected into the non-operated knee in April, thought it would help longer than this!
I remember a time in my life when I was alone and experienced my hardest moments at night, so I can understand a little of what you are going through.
What bothers me about it the most is that I'm starting a new job in 2 weeks, and since I'm a rehab professional, I don't want to look like I'm in pain. But it is obvious, especially since currently I need help to come from sit-to-stand position, and my face reflects pain!

Hi. This is my first night. I got here because I find myself starting to binge (ate gummy bears and chips...not many though). I really could use some support right now. I've been an emotional eater all my life, and when the stress and anxiety creep in it's usually at night, when I'm alone and there's nothing to occupy my time.

@Tricia: I understand your knee woes. I'm a runner, and had knee surgery this past April. I was in pain, but not nearly as much as what you are going through. I didn't have knee replacement surgery, and I've heard that it takes a while to recover from that. I had a torn meniscus both lateral and medial, and a complete loss of cartilage for which a micro fracture was performed. In any event, hang in there. I know it's not easy. I'm here for you, and would be happy to swap knee war stories with you. Hugs.

Smart Carber.

Hi, my name is Tricia. I am an emotional eater, and recently started eating at night: I recently had knee replacement surgery, and wake up several times per night in pain. I get up to "shake out" the knee pain, apply ice, take meds, etc. While up, I find myself eating for comfort. I have 50 lbs to lose. Because of knee pain, I need to lose this weight, I WANT TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT!!
