Mind, body, soul, healthy eating, healthy mind... it's all so intertwined, isn't it? There are several of us here who have been at this for several years, but take a "leave of absence" every so often (as I have recently). But, luckily, we make our way back to our friends who share our love/hate relationship with food. Lately, I've been loving it a bit too much. lol

Speaking of friends, where's Mr. Sonic?? lol Sure! He drags me back from my face stuffing only to disappear! Hey, Mister... If my butt has to climb back on the wagon, I'm dragging yours with!!
quinniepoo, I'm here. Mondays are usually rough because I have pool league after work. Today was playoffs so I was home for maybe 30 minutes after work, then I was gone again until almost 11 pm. Don't fret, I'm here right by your side hun.

Goals:
1) plan meals -yes
2) stick close to plan - ate much less
3) 1600 cal max -860
4) drink 6 glasses water minimum - 5 or 6
5) stretch every day -no
6) get back into exercise reasonably- no
7) don't overdo -yes
8) let go of anger - no
9) meditate -no
10) write -yes
11) don't be a self (or any other kind of) hater -no
12) don't answer phone or spend too much time online till I get work done - no but this will be one I will try and follow

Not a great start. I lost a couple more pounds but I get the feeling it won't stick cause it is hard for me to maintain such low calories. I just get too hungry!!!

Welcome back, Mike. I knew Quinn could get ya. I find your stories very interesting; wondering who you are chanelling there. I didn't know that about your mom. Powerful energy in that house, I think.

Oh Hope, I don't like the no's beside letting go of anger and self-hate. I hope today you can have a yes beside both of those!!

Hope, yeah she died back in '98. For the longest time, my GF and I kept what was going on from the kids because we didn't want to spook them. Then it spooked us when THEY started talking about it one day. I guess deep down we were trying not to believe what was going on and didn't want to corrupt their thinking. Nothing crazy has happened (like you see in movies, like the house shaking, etc), but there is definitely something not normal going on.

I like veggies I do but I am alas an omnivore and a recovering carboholic (and if sugar isn't a drug, I don't know what is. I recently saw a bumper sticker that said Sugar: The Gateway Drug.)
Well how could I not?? Even in the few short weeks I've been here, you have been such a positive and wonderfully kind person! I am loving getting to know everyone here

As for cutting up veggies? Omgosh, I can't stand it! My Christmas gift this year was given to me early - it's a food processor! This makes my life soo much easier, and I find cooking a lot more fun now with less prep work to not worry about!

I know what you mean Ama. Mom bought an apple pie (a while ago) and it was 300 calories for 1/8 of the pie--and it wasn't that big to begin with. That turned me right off having a piece!

TREE IS UP!! It's not decorated but it's no fun doing that alone and my Mom has gone to church dinner.

Ok... you get a pass. Now, lose the Pop Tarts and chew on an apple or something! (Oh, an apple smeared with peanut butter... now that sounds pretty good! ) One of my favorite snacks lately has been a Granny Smith apple dipped in caramel Greek yogurt.

I shouldn't tease you because I made 8 dozen cookies in the past 2 days and MAY have tried a couple, for quality control, of course.

Will probably do 3-4 more dozen this afternoon... We had 5" of snow on Monday, so it was nice to stay home and mess around in the kitchen, my favorite place to be.
