I think it's awesome you got a mile in with your head feeling as it did! I'm such a wuss when it comes to headaches and sinus pressure, I tend to go all woe-is-me mode and do nothing. Next time I am going to remember that you did your walking DVD even in your allergy misery! I never did try the Dreamfield's pasta, I completely plum forgot. I'm writing it down right now and sticking it on the wall at work that I look at every day for reminders so that when I go grocery shopping this weekend, I'll see if they have it at my store (or somewhere nearby). If I could switch to a low-carb pasta that would be amazing (Getting BF to switch would be nothing short of a miracle).
I think I remember seeing your name around awhile ago, welcome back and welcome to the thread!
I have believed in the food gods as well as the cleaning fairy for years now. Don't crush my hopes and dreams!!!! I think we have the same food devil, though sometimes mine substitutes the chocolate for a nacho or a slice of pizza. The angel really needs to freaking speak up, get some public speaking classes or something... Perhaps that SHOULD be the new home for the food scale there, it's just a kind of awkward spot, right behind our mini-deep-fryer (lol, yes, we have a deep fryer in the kitchen, lawd help me...)
LOVE the jeans idea. Buying new clothes can be theraputic for my weight loss, but not so much for my wallet! Get on that, ladies!
Welcome to our chatty bunch, and good luck with your goals! 1200 calories is too strict for me to do every day (some days I do it), but I'm envious of both you and Quinn
for getting that goal!
I'm in agreement - it's your body, don't get something expensive and painful if you're not 100% sure you need it. I think you'll know if it's fibro or something else one way or another and you can do whatever needs done.
Mushy rice happens!! As long as it still tastes good, I think you can call it whatever you want!
Sorry about your sleeping woes. I don't have any advice as I'm not a Mom, but hopefully you can get your child to a better (and less scary!) sleep. I know when I don't get sleep I am always depressed and cranky and irritable. Don't give up!
HATE those hormones, argh! If you're comfortable going on the no-baby pills they do always seem to help, but you've gotta watch for the side effects too.
Hugs and a bowl of soup for you! Hope you turn the corner soon!
I think you made pretty darned decent compromises at the movie theater - and hey, a slushy has some water too!

We must be giving each other stomach bugs or something. I actually wasn't vomit-sick yesterday, but it was coming out the other end in spades. I don't think it was anything I ate. I'm chalking it up to stress and TOTM; it was ending, but I often get gastric disturbances for a couple of days.
On the bright side, my weight was down to a new low this morning!! It's likely due to all the bathroom trips so I'll see what the scale says on Friday, but ever so slowly my plateau on the graph (which has been a straight line for like 3 months now) is starting to curve in the right direction. I also got in my workout yesterday and managed to get through without needing to pause for a bathroom break, though I did get a little nauseated because I was workin' hard! I'm also coming up on the 60-lbs.-lost milestone, which will be a great feeling, less than 2 lbs. to go to get to that! Maybe I should change my weigh-in day to Wednesdays, seems like I always get a low number on Wednesdays, haha!
My eye is bright red for some really weird reason, so I skipped makeup today and I am wearing my glasses rather than contacts, since when I put my contact lens in it felt very burny. Red eyes are exactly what I need for a Skype interview (with video) Friday
Here's hoping it clears up, and also that my stomach feels better today (so far so good).
Happy hump-day everyone!
