Way to go Star!! I am proud of you for sticking with posting when no one seems to be reading and responding and for sticking with the struggle through such a difficult time of your life. Even though right now you may need to focus your energies more on getting through things with your job, if you keep in the back of your mind to not go completely off the deep end with your food and do some exercise (which will help manage the stress) when things even out at work you won't have quite as far to come back on track. The reality of being human is that sometimes we have to focus our energies for short periods of time in other areas, the key is to keep that period short, and not to allow ourselves to go completely out of control with our food while we are focusing elsewhere. Trust me - I have learned the hard way that going completely out of control will only make the stress worse.

Still struggling. The wind down of my job is taking a huge emotional toll on me. I am trying to stick it out to the end but don't think I can stay while the new company comes in and I see the stress it is going to cause the residents of the place I work at and my own staff. I am trying daily to get my eating right but am failing. I am hoping that once the transition is done and I have moved on to a new job I can get myself together again!

No success for six days! Have eaten like crap! I gotta pull it together. I am letting the stress of the impending end to my job just whack me totally out. I guess the only success I can say is I went to the gym and at least got rid of some of my bad eating! Ugh!!!!

This success is becoming almost a daily one for me-not eating when I am not hungry. It has beome a pleasure for me to actually feel hunger, look forward to whatever I have brought to work for lunch and then enjoy it when I get to eat it. This has actually made eating a much more enjoyable experience for me and yet I eat so much less!

Now if I can just keep it up! emoticon

So what are the odds??? We have over 6000 people on this site and I am apparently the only person who doesn't have writer's laryngitis! I hope every one else gets better soon so I can hear about your progress! emoticon

Saturday night is our one eat out night a week. I know it's probably not the politically correct way to watch my intake but on Saturdays I have my breakfast smoothe a little later in the morning than usual and then only drink fluids until dinner. For whatever reason it works for me. Tonight we had chinese takeout. We have a killer chinese restaurant here in Pleasant Hill and I love their empress chicken.Tonight I got my order which I always split with my youngest child and couldn't even get through my half of the order. I felt like gagging. I put the rest away for a lunch this coming week. I ended up total calorie wise way LESS than usual which I couldn't believe!

Lesson today-you can eat things just in moderation. I know my mother has preached that my whole life but it is so true. In my four good weeks I have ruled nothing off limits, only controlled amounts. This makes me even more hopeful because I just don't think it works to make food good or bad. Food is food. I just needed to figure that out!

Sat in hot tub with hubbie last night and he went to get a beer. He asked me if I wanted one and I almost said yes and then thought "Nah, my weight will change tomorrow and I don't want to ruin it!". Woke up today two pounds lighter! I know, I know, water weight, blah, blah, blah but no matter what the cause, it is still motivating!

Okay people I know you are out there! I am going to get really tired of listening to myself! Naners? Briarrose? Where are you?????

Today I had a silly victory I wanted to share but I'm not sure if I am sharing it with anyone but myself! I will take a chance someone is reading and share it anyways. Only people who struggle with weight can appreciate what I did and I need to tell someone!!

Today at our staff meeting another nurse brought in a big bag of vanilla flavored tootsie rolls. I LOVE vanilla flavored tootsie rolls! Probably as much as anything on earth. My instant reaction was oh crap. Since I came back from Chicago in March and completely changed my eating habits (long story) I have eaten clean for almost four weeks. I allow myself one sweet a day and have never broken that. Sweets are my vice. I wanted those toosie rolls so bad I was practically salivating. Then I thought "you can do this. You have for four weeks. You can eat some and they will be your sweet for the day". So I read the calories, decided I didn't want to waste 140 calories on six tootsie rolls and ate only three. I completely ignored them the last fifty-five minutes and honestly never thought about them again. Those three toosie rolls were delicious but they were also enough. In all the times, off and on, I have tryed to change my eating habits, I have NEVER been able to do what I did today! I am proud of myself!

Okay, so maybe nobody read this and I am talking to myself but just seeing it in print makes me relive and enjoy that one small success. I would love to hear about everyone else's small and big successes!
