Mike, keeping you, your family and property in my prayers, as well as all the residents of the gulf states. A huge YAHOO on the lien holder refund and letter and refund info from PowersportsPlus. So glad someone there really does care about customer service and fairness.

Tracey, it certainly is not easy to eat healthfully all the time. I have been where you are many times over. I think I try to trick myself into believing one more cheat won't hurt me or that the scale won't notice. OMG, you've come such a long way from 234 lbs to 152! Major congratulations on that! I was up to 246 lbs. 2 years ago and am only down 20 lbs. for the same reasons you cite. How long did it take you to get down to your current weight--down 82 lbs? Tell us what you can to in order to get your motivation back up. Do you have any certain events coming up for which you'd like to be at a lower weight? How about setting a short term goal and then giving yourself a non-food reward when you reach it--like treating yourself to a movie, or a new blouse/top, something inexpensive but pretty for your house? By golly, I'm going to do it--when I lose 10 lbs. I don't know what it'll be yet, but I'm going to buy myself something that costs up to $20--anything I want--something I don't need but want--and I very, very rarely do that.

Ann, glad you enjoyed your birthday celebration except for the hangover Kudos on hitting the gym and getting right back on the wagon.

Kayla, hooray on your great day! Way to go with the positive attitude!

Cassie, that's great that DH may have his car back tomorrow.

Ama, I just loved your reply to Tracey. I have talked to my food before, too--hey, we all do what we gotta do! LOL I did prelog two pieces of sugar free candy into my snack tonight, but when I saw it would put me over in my fat allowance for the day, I did take it off--wasn't worth blowing my day for a few moments of chocolate pleasure.
