    Keep "moo"ving on! (Sorry, the cow background had me) You can do this, and we all have off days. I had a day-long binge yesterday, not just an hour or so of inhaling all I could. I feel awful for it. But we keep moving. I am not going to binge today just because I did yesterday. Today is a new day.

    My biggest tip: go back to swing! I know you love dancing! :)

    If you're trying to get in the mental game, have fun doing it!

    Even the "healthy" folks have their binge moments. We all have our moments. I'm glad you're not letting it bring you down.

    Swing dancing is awesome. Love it. I've also really gotten into Tango, but those classes are really expensive and it's more for muscle building. Swing is great for cardio!Don't you dare worry about what's going on in that room around you! And that includes the mirror. We are our worst critic. If you're having fun, that's all that matters.

    I definitely know what you mean about others making it look easy. That's why I don't like working out with someone. My fit friends make 100 crunchs look so easy or run.

    Don't be discouraged girl. You are still here! You're fighting! I commend you for all of those things. You're awesome!

    Just do the best you can, not everyone is so called perfect.
    Perfect for someone else is not perfect to you.
    And we can not be totally happy with all everything about ourselves.
    Just take yourself as you are, BEAUTIFUL GIRL.

    Relax and do your best, Hugs Rosalyn

    Haven't you ever watched Dancing With the Stars? Not everyone is thin and trim. Even the athletic ones have had trouble. They all look better by the end if they have been able to make it to the final four. Swing dancing is your exercise. It is a great one because you can do it even after you reach your goal weight just for fun. Besides our problem may be internally but the result shows on the outside for all to see. Those thin and fit people have their problems and their fears even if you can't see them. The next time you look into that mirror see that beautiful person inside and out. The one that has taken that first step to a better healthier life.

    Look at the muscles in their legs. They didn't get them sitting on the coach watching TV and thinking of what they could eat. They were moving. Now you are too.

    I wish I had started at your age and not at 58. Think of all the things I have missed out on. You sit more and more, eat more and more and get bigger and bigger so you stop going out for fear of not fitting in the seats . . . . DO NOT DO THAT TO YOURSELF. You are beautiful and full of life. What else can you sign up for that doesn't involve eating or drinking and gets you out with people? Keep yourself so busy you will not want to eat but remember to fuel your body. So pack a snack and water.

    I am going to follow your journey. Show me what my life could have been like if I had found Sparks 40 years ago. emoticon

    Sorry the mirrors took away part of your fun.

    Bing'ing is very sneaking. I totally agree. Happens to me all the time. My big once is the days where I hadn't realized I hadn't eaten and taken it all in during dinner. Which I know is wrong.

    Just remember you are human. We are not perfect. I know we all wish we were. I thought the same on my first time around. I am on my third time around. last time I lost over 60lbs.

    After I lost my job in February up until the end of June I put every one of those pounds back on.

    We are with you on your journey. It will be tough but we can do it.
