I had better cut back on beans and broccoli today - good thinking! I'm wavering right around goal, so better safe than sorry for today!

Great info to know when you're cutting it close for weigh-in day! I knew to stay away from my beloved carbs, but broccoli? Who knew? Thanks for the great post!

I have got the clearest of patterns too -- helps me to not get any surprises for D1! Hope you can get some good sleep this week!!


Such awesomeness knowing your body this well. I knew better than to have the dinner I had last night (deep fried battered fish and sweet potato fries and one beer). Paying the piper today...feeling horrible physically and disappointed in myself. Just reading your blog post lifted my spirits....yeah bad choices come and they go. Keep going strong Frae!
It feels great, but does my butt look big in these shorts?

You've got a great sense of humor. And besides giving us free feel-good drugs and maintaining whatever we do to our weight through diet, we have to acknowledge that it does burn a few calories too, so negates a little bit of what we eat.

My friend walks everywhere, refuses to own a car even though we live in a public transportation dessert. She gains 10 pounds every summer eating the same, doing the same amount of walking, but in winter she has to walk in cold weather and so it burns enough calories that she loses the 10 pounds she gains in summer.

So it is part of the whole equation. I think the hardest thing to realize in a world where we have more than enough delicious choices of food, and need to do so little physical labor, we lose track of how efficient our bodies are, and how few calories we actually do need to maintain health.
Oh no oh no oh no...

When you least expect it, it creeps up on you again and again, you just have to keep fighting it. You can do it!


Lol least your smart enough not to hop on the train :))

I drove 2 hrs. to get cookies.....COOKIES......all the way thinking
"what the hell is wrong with me" but I didn't turn around ...just kept on driving,
And of course once I arrived for my cookies,....
I bought enough to last a Month...well a week for me.
But again what the hell is wrong with me???
I feel so bad after I shove them in my disappointed in myself....

Ok done babbling ;))

The good part.....I've been here in DB since Sept & haven't had a cookie or candy since I started ;)) I've lost weight, made my money back plus ;)) ....made friends & am finally liking myself again ;))

Since you were smart enough not to hop on the train, I know you got this ;))
Your going to do great & reach your goal ;)))
I'm rooting for your success ...say goodby to that stubborn 5lbs. Forever ;))))

I feel like it gives me a stronger push to go through with it, instead of wibbling backwards, with REASONS, as is usually the case. Even in little things like this, animals make us better people, yeah? :)


I've got goosebumps - this is so very kind. Hugs - Funzie
