Yet another thing I love about the South (besides the warm weather) people seem to be more accepting and almost appreciative of curves! Being called "thick" is actually a good thing - it means voluptuous, and curvy so you'll hear me use the word often. But that can be a bad thing about the South - you're almost encouraged to eat too much! And believe me it's already hard enough to turn away good ole down home southern food w/o the added encouragement lol

I think we all know what to do when we're struggling - come here for support! ("Thick" Caramel? - I love that!) There are bound to be tough spots, just remember to get right back at it after we stumble...

It was a hard weekend for me, too. Although I didn't go Waaaaaaaaaaaay overboard, I came close. The pantry was calling my name all weekend. Based on the comments, there must be some sort of thing that happens this far into a diet - or "life-style change" to be correct. The body must say - hey - this is going on longer than I expected! Feed me!! LOL.
Hold on the lap band - see if you can make it. The lap band will only work if you make the changes you need to make. Otherwise, you'll end up back where you are now. Just my thought. Keep posting to the message boards - whenever you feel the urge to eat.

I am having a hard time with will power I absolutely have none. I had a stressful weekend which resulted in a eating marathon. I feel like an alcoholic returning to aa. I have gained weight and now I am feeling sick. I am not sure how to stop. I need help. I'm thinking about lap banding. what do you think?

Ahh the Buffet...a "thick person's" arch nemesis! lol
I too kinda showed my ass this weekend, went to Chili's and ate good (though no dessert, which is weird for me b/c I'm a sweet maniac, a demented Cookie Monster if you will lol) but I did have a margarita. I always tend to mess up on the weekends, but during the week I'm way more consistent. I'll need to find a happy medium on the weekends. Anway here's to all of us having a great week!

I did well today, but yesterday my husband and I went out with some friends. I was able to do good at the bar (no drinks and ate well) but later that night we stopped at Dairy Queen...

Thanks for asking but no, the ring was not found. I'm holding out hope for the spring thaw, so keep praying. I'm a true believer in the power of prayer. If it's meant to be I'll get it back. If not, well, my memories of my mom weren't lost with the ring...
Thanks again -

JJ

How's everyone doing? The ring - was it found? The cat- did he come back? And when is the surgery scheduled?

Hope you're all well again and that prayers were answered.

And so why don't we start a prayer chain in here, cause I lost my long time buddy, my cat of 8 years. Just disappeared, which is so very much unlike him.
Been gone since Friday, and never misses a meal or likes this bitter cold and snow.

Lets hope all our angels hear our prayers today.
I wish you all courage and hope.
Love
Bu

Good luck with everything you're dealing with Lisa. I too will be praying for a good outcome.

Congrats on the willpower Krista - I had a piece of cake for you! Other than that, my food & fitness went surprisingly well. Unfortunately my weekend was ruined when I lost my mothers' wedding ring Saturday night. It was pretty cold out so I don't know if it just slipped off my finger while we were out. I made calls to places we went - now I just have to wait, and keep looking. Maybe while you're praying for Lisa you could slip one in there for me? Thanks.........

Here's to the start of a new and better week for everyone!

I'm going to go in to get x-rays of my neck & shoulder today finally! Surgery will be welcomed!! I'm going GREAT on my diet but exercise has been a little slow all week, so I'll welcome ANYthing that gives relief!! At least I'm getting a sling today. Any prayers or thoughts today would be greatly appreciated!

This board seems a little slow and quiet today, how is everyone doing and feeling after the weekend?

Me, i slacked a little this weekend, but I went to my neices 2nd birthday on saturday and instead of having birthday cake I had some raw veggies and a lil dip, woo hoo, i'm so proud of myself because I really wanted that cake it is looked soooo good.

Hope everyone did well this weekend.
