    UPDATE: Went to the doctor for my check up and had the nurse check my weight since the last visit in march . I had lost 7 lbs. Since then I have lost 1 more lb for a total of 8. YEAH! Relaxing a little has helped. I have to stay focused, but not obsess and think of nothing else. At least that is what works for me. I was beating myself up too much therefore setting myself up to fail. Relax, this is a life change , not a diet. emoticon

    Okay , I had gained and been up and down for I cant say how long but have gotten back on the points system of keeping up and tried not to think SSOOO much about every morsel as I do just relaxing and making the weight loss secondary in my mind... it seems to have worked. I lost 4 lbs this week and didn't starve and don't seem to be having the emotional turmoil. This stemmed from a conversation with a friend about how when we obsess and think about it all the time I do terrible, but when I wasn't trying to lose weight and constantly planning and measuring and stressing I don't seem to have the sympathy cravings and bad day binges as much. Simply.... I don't like being told what to do I guess...feeling like I am being controlled. Silly and contradicting I know. I have logged everyday and simply packed my lunch bag at night but somehow internally not struggled with do I have 3 oz of protein and so many grams of carbs etc, etc and decided if i lose I lose but just count the points and go on. Its all mental with me apparently. We will see. emoticon

    To Dream Anything that you want to dream,
    that is the beauty of the human mind.
    To do Anything that you want to do,
    that is the strength of the human will.
    To Trust Yourself to test your limits,
    that is the courage to succeed.
