I'm on a 'normal' day today, but apparently not a good one. I just totted up my cals for the day and came out with...2069. If I remove candy and champagne (a mid-day work celebration, oy), I end up with 1368. WTF? I had a weird sweet tooth today and then I got that f*** it thing and just ate whatever I felt like. Bad mojo today...

I'm not fasting again till Thursday, so tomorrow I'll try to have a better 'normal' day, though I have another social thing tomorrow night. Sigh. The wine calories are killing me, but I pretty much suck at social occasions if I can't have a drink or three. <_<

Laura -- loved your pics in the previous page of this thread, haven't seen your progress before, you look great! The midsection is soooo much smaller, you look happier too. Does my heart good.

I am too tired and grumpy to get into the family saga...suffice to say that my generation is the first one with fat people in it (primarily my sister and me) and the rest of my family are OBSESSED with weight and used to monitor what I ate, how much I weighed, etc. UGH. I was fat in my head loooooong before I was even slightly fat physically. <_<

Yeah, time for bed. Good luck Tuesday fasters!!!

Cheri what state do you live in now?

I have a appointment with a new endocrinologist today because of some parathyroid issues.

So I'm sure they will do more blood work and I'll ask about the dizziness.

Fasting so far, is good today just ate some eggs.

I know thyroid issues can result in low blood pressure and adrenal issues, which can result in low blood sugar. I have low blood pressure to begin with, and ofter if I stand up to fast, I get very dizzy. I have only fallen once as a result, but still scarey! I also had started taking a thyroid supplement because I am borderline but having a hard time getting treatment. I think it had some effect on my adrenals and made my blood sugar drop and I was dizzy and shaky. Needless to say, I quit taking it!

I am glad you have an appointment to get it all checked out!

I always wondering why parents thought things like that were ok! I know sometimes they think they are doing what is right, in reality, they are doing more harm then good. But I always say, when you know better, you do better!

I am trying not to pass along bad habits and insecurities to my children. I rarely weight them and try very hard not to make comments about their weight ( my son is quite thin, but I have become much more aware of saying he is too skinny or anything in those regards). We also talk about making healthy choices, food that is good for our bodies, and how it is OK to have treats once in a while but not all the time. I really want them to have a healthy approach to food. I grew up poor, and I was always told to eat all the meat because that was the most expensive! I never make my children finish their plates or force them to eat anything. In the back of my head, I am hoping I am doing the right thing! I do not want to see my children have to go through the things I went through being overweight ( I have struggled with weight since Kindergarten, and was teased almost my entire life). I did have to pay myself on the back though one day when I had to take my daughter to the hospital...the doc asked what her favorite food was and she said broccoli! Yes, where is my best mom trophy!! He he!

Today is normal day for me! It is eh so far, but oh well.

Um...WTF?!? Seriously? I just thought you might have dyed your hair, and if I'm honest, I'm typing without my glasses or contacts, so I'm lucky I can see anything at all. I'm like Mr Magoo here. :blink:

Trying to get back on track after a difficult couple of weeks with family crisis. I had lost 4lb but unfortunately have put it back on. So today was a fast day and mfp says 582 calories consumed, not exactly perfect but I took the extra calories as I realised my Protein had to be boosted.

UK Cathy, I think that's what so great about eating this way . I you have a bad day, fasting seems to put us back on track.

I know now that i am always going to be eating this way. It would seem that I could stay at goal (if I get back there) as long as continue to eat this way, even if I get to a

satisfactory weight.

Laura' date=' you look frickin' fantastic![/quote']

:) thank you.

I can use that today! I just got back from the new Dr. And he took more blood and scheduled me for another scan he seemed more concerned that my thyroid hasn't been taken out yet. And got me concerned how big and low it is (kinda like my boobs) :P

Anyway I'm probably going to be over 500 calories today, I just felt like I needed some carbs today so I ate a handful of gold fish...

Today was such a failure for me. I have been so ready getting ready to go on my road trip tomorrow. So I just decided to postpone my fast to another day. Looking forward to traveling and getting away form Southern California for a while. I will be using the gyms at the hotels if they have any to burn calories and planning on eating high Protein and little carbs..... I can do this.... :P

Not a failure! Just not a total fast day...

Like me. I ate a bite of bread today too.

If I had to pinpoint it... i would say because I'm overly tired today. When I bumped my head this morning It was around five am (damn dog)

And I never went back to bed.

I've been feeling on empty all day.

So no failures today? Ok? :D

Oh on that note I came in at 593 today. :o

I am so glad to of finally found friends on here who have been through some of the things I have been through. Thank you for sharing, maybe one day I will get the courage to share my life.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
