Posted two days because last night I was bad and felt really sick...let myself get too hungry after being good all day and stuffed my face with chicken parm and ravioli. Still, shows how good I was earlier that it only brought me up to 2209.
I've discovered that the difference in me getting my protein or not has been going back to my old breakfast from last year of Greek yogurt with a bit of All-Bran and some fruit mixed in. The added bonus is that I'm not super gassy all day. I'm thinking maybe my digestive system hates bread.
The only time I have to exercise at home is in the evening, and I've been really really tired in the evening. I have to figure something out for doing my weights. It made me feel so much stronger last year. I guess I just have to do it, but most of the time I can barely keep my eyes open. Getting more sleep would probably help.

I also had trouble logging into site yesterday. I just came back later and it was fine.
I don't remember who mentioned watching Biggest Loser. I watched it last night and it was nice to see healthy living "in action". That what I think of as obsessive is actually how one has to be if they want to lose weight or maintain the weight that the lost. The one lady sent her food back. It showed that it's alright to tell friends that I can't eat that.
A friend of mine has been supportive of my weight loss. We talk by email as she works, has too kids and doesn't live in the same city as me. I wish I could offer her support too. She seems to be procrasinating. "I'll start working out after baby is born"--she is now 1 1/2.
1) 8 glasses of water- 6? 7? 6 so hard for me IDKY no ? yes
2) walk or move, stop being a slug- walked, walked, walked ,walked and danced, walked on the beach in Mississippi, walked in NOLA
3) plan meals - yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
4) do not say what plan? ate more than planned; plan? hahahahaha just added 1/2 piece of sf cheesecake DH bought but I'm calling it a yes NO yes; no
5) stretch - yes no yes, yes, yes, yes
6) meditate - yes no yes no no, yes
7) do not give up (writing, diet, health, etc.) ok with diet, the rest meh... gave up on everything (writing, diet, health) and then decided to turn it around positive, trying to heal, wrote antoher story, walked, meditated, yeah baby!!! ummm took a break... yes, no
Mike, regarding the pastries, I resemble that remark (that I was justifying.) I DO NOT eat pastries, only little cakes lol.
So excited I got Stanley!!!!! Trying to make nice plans for him though DH told me not to take him to Bourbon St last night (don't worry, he never came out of my bag, too seedy for him. Stanley is a good boy.)
So today was going to be a day off walking for me. I figured I did enough this week plus I had some stuff I needed to catch up (computer work) for work. But the sun shone for the first time in literally weeks and the wind was down so I couldn't resist a walk. First time in sneakers instead of winter boots yeah! Did another 3.16km puts me up over 25km for the week.
My husband, who is completely dependent on me for food right now is doing really well with his forced diet. He lost 15 pounds in the last 2 weeks. It took me 3 months!!
Darlene: want to do a walking goal for this week? Something reasonable with work lol. Anyone else? Takers?
