Hi everyone, how are you all? I am okay, feeling like I am coming down with that cold everyone seems to have. I feel asleep on the couch at 6pm and woke up at 830pm had a drink and went back to bed. UGH.
Accountability: good, no extra bites. I had a small pouch day and was not feeling great and skipped lunch & dinner and just had cheese & and some olives
QOTD: What was your most recent craving? Did you cave and eat it? Did you ignore it and work through the craving and if you did what technique/s did you use to beat the craving? Driving home yesterday I passed an 18 wheeler that had a McDonald's advertisement on the side of the truck and looking down at me was chicken McNugget's and I had this random craving for them. I had no problem ignoring the craving. I don't eat deep fried foods and the thought of eating them made me feel ill, yet I craved them at the same time. So weird. Also I so fear regain and so I just won't go there, that is one of my "techniques" I fear regain so much I just won't eat certain foods.

Maintenance is extremely HARD. I had surgery on my stomach not my brain. The struggle is real and I work daily to maintain my weight loss, you can do it too!
Yuck, feel better Daisy. The cold I had was a nasty one. I am still sniffly and a little run down, and I got mine on Christmas Day! I hope you don't get it!
Oh man, what a week I've had! I have been so busy when I am at work that I am not even on top of my schedule. Yesterday I realized (10 minutes before a meeting started) that it was being hosted a a school not the office, so I had to jump in an UBER and ended up 20 minutes late. I was supposed to be the first presenter, too, btw! Every day has been like that... I haven't seen daylight all week, either, so no pics of the shiny new car, yet. I'll try again today! Today's schedule has me traveling to 6 different places between the hours of 7am - 5pm. Help!
Accountability: Switching things out here and there as I often do, but not eating off plan of off calorie count at all. I've stuck to my goal of cutting out flour and sugar this month and it's going well. The weight loss is slowing from where it was in week 1, but it's still heading in the right direction.
QOTD: Ok, so my office has always had big jars of little Hershey mini candies scattered around the office. It's taken 2+ years but I am finally immune to seeing those as something to crave. I can walk past them and not even blink. But over the break our office manager decided to get fancy and she ordered a whole new set of snacks for the office. We replaced the Hershey mini's with little wrapped Dove medallions, plus there are bags of gummy candy, trail mix, pretzels, and POTATO CHIPS all over. Most of it doesn't bother me, but I would cut-a-***** for a little bag of potato chips. Mmmm.
Ok, I'm still trying to fill in the -cut a***** thing. I'm seventy and find I spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to fill in the*****!... it's really difficult when a 'space' should have been used but the system ignores the space and evidently just uses the sequence of letters....hmmmm
You have to go into your settings here on OH and there is a section to "click" allow adult content. Then you will see swear words etc
Oh! Thank you so much! ....you know I've really missed you, thanks again
I'd much rather have the Hershey's around than Dove. Hershey's is not that great as far as chocolate goes. I won't eat it unless I'm dying for chocolate. Dove is another story. It's wonderful. Our director always brings chocolate to meetings and scatters it around the table. I'm always glad for the days she brings Hershey's....
It would be pretty damn hard to resist those Dove chocolates, they are awesome.
I sure hope all the flooding and storm damage is getting cleaned up for your schools and in Boston.
Enjoy your new car I can't wait to see a pic!
As delicious or maybe even better than Lindor Ginny. Although Lindor has my heart hands down.
