Exhaustion is a kamillion letter word...

Really, people on a "lifestyle change" should have extra avenues toward energy. My little girl had a digestive upset, shall we say, this weekend. I was terrified, she was uncomfortable and ANGRY, and quite frankly, puke is yucky. I'm not being good today. I'VE EARNED IT! Oh, wait. I haven't earned anything.

    boy are you right!!!!
    Thanks for the advice on my plateau........I will try it!!
    I hope that your daughter is feeling better. I was with you last week....teething and up every hour and a half for 4 nights! Anyway I blew it on good friday...but you are right you don't earn the right to blow it! Why would eating everything in sight make me feel better? Life is Life and I just have to deal with it, and not by eating a several donuts or going to McDonalds. That will not help, will it?
    Hang in there you are doing great!
