Journal: Day 5
I DID IT!!!
I stayed within my calorie alotment yesterday for the first time since joining!!!
It sounds pathetic that it took me that long, and I have no excuses.
BUT, hey, I finally did it. My goal is to do it again today.

Maybe this online journaling is helping.

I know the advice and support from this forum is very helpful.

I'm guessing today will be a tough one. My daughter woke up at 12:30am last night and would not fall back to sleep until 4am!!! It was so hard to stay awake. I got so stressed that my neck, chest and shoulders are so sore and feel out of wack today. So I'm very tired and very sore.

I miss my son, I wonder how he's doing. It's very hot here (Chicago area) We're breaking records again, and I hope that it's a little cooler up at camp (Wisconson area). I know it's in the 90's there and the leaders are so thoughtful and responsible, but I just want him to have a good time.

Okay, so my plan today, to deal with the fatigue, lots of water, B vitamins, green tea and a nice long walk all before work.
My absolute worst binges have happened on days when I'm this tired, but not today. Today I will find another way to cope and if it gets real hard, I'll come here for support.

Wish me lots of luck today.


Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.

I think we need one too. It looks so bare on our SparkPages w/out one. SpongeBob works for me!

NOTHING tastes as good as being thin...and healthy!

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what''s going to happen next.

Oh my gosh... the picture of Schipper's granddaughter - Olivia Rose - just makes me smile and smile. Thank you for that! Looks like Sponge Bob is in the lead -- I do love Thatsy's take on the feeling of freedom, letting go, and running through the jelly fish fields. You both made my day! Thank you -- Kells

I''m going to go sky diving. I''m going to go Rocky Mountain Climbing. I''m going to go 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fu Manchu. I''m loving deeper, and I''m speaking sweeter and I''m giving forgiveness I''d been denying. And I hope some day that you will get the chance to live like you were dying.

I agree... about the chocolate in the coat pocket and that we need a positive Icon. I like the SpongeBob idea. How about him blowing bubbles or running in the jellyfish fields.
Something that represents freedom.
A sense of letting go and expieriencing joy!!

This is one of my favorite groups - and I think we deserve a group icon. Or else I just want an icon because it would look better on my Sparks page. Or both reasons, actually.

But it would have to be something really good -- something that would make us all smile and maybe even giggle a little when we saw it. Smiling is an indicator of a positive emotion. Positive emotions don't tend to whisper "the chocolate is still hidden in the pocket of your winter coat; go ahead and eat it all because you'll feel so much better." I don't need to feel better if I'm already smiling and giggling. You?

No tears though... and no cute little pictures of empty pints of Ben & Jerry's... Based on what I've read in this group I just don't think we need that. Those wouldn't be very iviting icons. I think we have enough sadness and self loathing emotions - the emotions that whisper "the chocolate..."

By the way, I've never actually hidden my chocolate in the pocket of my winter coat. I swear! But if I was going to hide some chocolate, which I am not going to do... Hmmmm.... No! No! No!

I digress. The icon. The group icon. My vote is for Sponge Bob. He just makes me giggle. What do you say?

Have an awesome day, all of you!
