I'm proud of myself today because in the middle of the hectic pace of trying to get ready for the first day of school Monday...I took time to eat both breakfast and lunch. I am setting a goal of taking at least 30 minutes EVERY day for ME! I will stop and eat and not let myself go until I'm starved and then lose control!

Laughter is to life what shock absorbers are to automobiles. It won't take the potholes out of the road, but it sure makes the ride smoother.

I'm proud of myself today because I went for a brisk 1/2hr bike ride with my DH on the trails near our home last night even though I was tired and what I really wanted to do was sit on my behind and watch TV. I didn't even whine or grumble when I did it. emoticon
Thanks sweetie for getting me off the couch!

I'm proud of myself today because I got the house clean (no easy task) and even though I didn't have much time, I still went for a 2 mile run.

All right Linn, I'll take your bait.... I was proud of myself yesterday because I found a leak at my water system and fixed it with a minimum of things going wrong.

Good for you for pre-planning. You did so well. Ands no, I didn't feel you were "fishing" for compliments. You were given them because you deserved them. Accept them please! emoticon

emoticon Thanks everyone. I really wasn't fishing for compliments, I was wanting to know about others successes. I guess I should've started this off with "I was proud of my self today because...."

and all that preplanning for the meal. That's a lot of organization. I'm in awe.

Don't know which is harder, eating out with non-dieting friends/family, or cooking for them! Sounds like you found a great solution - I'm sure it wasn't easy to stick to your plan, but you did it!! good for you!

Dinner guests! - that usually means cooking lots of great food for people who are not necessarily watching their weight, plus pre-dinner hors d'oeuvres, wine and a fitting dessert. Yikes! This time I pre-planned the menu so I could get what I need and pre-tracked the parts of the meal I intended to eat (had to recalculate several times to get it right)and I stuck with it. Whew! It was tough but very satisfying.
