...and bathing suits. I found a set of mix and match pieces I really love and I keep ordering and exchanging...is it a shopping problem if you have to replace it because your old one falls off of you if you don't tie the straps with a shoestring like your mom did for you when you were four???

wowgirl88, hang in there, baby. This too shall pass. Vent it out as much as you need to, no worries about being Miss Happy Sunshine on here. Take care of yourself.

Haha Cassie, that's not a bad thing, it's a great one! I'm putting aside some money every week for a shopping spree when I reach my ideal weight, at this stage my 'bathng suit' would be board shorts and a tshirt, god forbid anyone see my actual body!

Thanks for the encouragement, things kinda fell into place with my living arrangements and future goals, so I should be happy, but she's very full-on, to the point of aggressive, and I just don't have what it takes sometimes. On a good note, her being back will mean that I'll be at the gym more... not to avoid her, of course...

Oh goodness it is already Friday!

I had my Anthropology final exam Wednesday, so ate horribly Tuesday night- all of Wednesday, didn't sleep- then slept ALL Thursday.

Even though I only ate a tiny meal, supposedly I gained more weight?! I'm just hoping that it is from all the sodium that I consumed Wednesday

Today my goals are to drink water and love life.

Welcome back to the land of the living, mhibdon. Hope things went well with the exam! Go spend some time on the beach and it will be all better .

I'm absolutely dreading what I have scheduled today. Most of my work days are challenging but smooth, but this one has the potential to really blow up. I'm just going to keep reminding myself that I'm the professional and not stress-eat to deal with the frustration.

I'd really rather just sit on my bum and watch Wimbledon, but I can't turn down the work right now. Besides, I did that yesterday .

Have a great day, all!

I thought you were from Georgia, not England... or do you have a bum that lives near by, under a bridge?

Mike you crack me up the way you tease Cassie. LOL

wowgirl, I and most people I know who quit years ago still have cravings for a cig occasionally. They can come out of nowhere. You just gotta suck it up and vow to do something else until the craving passes because just one cig will put you back at square one. You probably already know that. I'm rootin' for ya--YOU CAN DO THIS! I hope your living arrangment difficulties smooth out soon--at least you can spend more time at the gym.

mhibdon, congrats on the great grades! Have fun tonight but be careful and prudent (says Grandma. LOL)

Cassie, big hug and best wishes for your work day going smoothly. I hope the fireworks possibility turns out the way you like. They scare the bejeebees out of me. LOL I'm a D cup and wish I could go braless away from home occasionally during the humid Ohio summers. I had my routine mammogram on a hot day last month and my car air conditioner wasn't working. It was at the Women's Center of the hospital so I knew I wouldn't run into any men. Because the office is connected to the parking garage by only a short hallway and I was going nowhere else, I went braless after making sure nothing showed through my top. The mammo tech acted as if she was repulsed that a grown woman would do such a thing.

Mary, you're doing great on food and exercise! Enjoy your weekend!

Thursday report: I did great on food, nutrition, and fitness goals yesterday. Got in two miles of aerobic walking and lots of water. Pledging a repeat performance today.

Everyone have a great weekend!
