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!
