Happy Monday Gang! Did you all have an awesome weekend? Mine was fantastic. Nice mix of relaxing, socializing and getting stuff done.

AMAW really was a success for me. I lost a few pounds. I suspect a lot of it was jus****er, but that needed to happen. I am less puffy, so yay! As I mentioned before I just wanted to do it for a few days to cut the carb craving and I think it did the trick. Now I am easing back to a more "normal" post op diet. High protein, low carb, and low sugar, and keeping calories around 800 a day.

QOTD: Related to the meme... what are you overthinking (but trying not to)? I've been pretty good about not overthinking a crazyyy work thing, but it is just nagging at me all the time. Basically one of the unions is grieving a decision that I made on behalf of one of my schools and I have to appear in court about it, next month. We didn't do anything wrong, but I have never had to go to court to defend myself in a labor mediation before and I am worried about it.

I changed my menu going forward to reflect 5 smaller meals, but this looks like a ton of food so I don't really see myself eating all of it, but I was trying to fit the food I have into the macros and this was the best I could come up with today!

Good morning everyone. Hope that you're all doing ok.

Its going to be hot this week. One forecast says 104 Thursday. Oh joy.

I've not been doing exactly great. The reprogramming of the stimulator did not help at all...it actually seems worse. I have to give it a certain amount of time but I'll probably be calling for another readjustment sooner than later.

Thanks to crappy insurance stuff I am stuck on the beginner dose of the antidepressant for 6 weeks. Hoping to get it bumped up next week. I need it. I've also been having major panic attacks. I end up curled up feeling like I'm dying. It's not happening every day but about every 2-3 days. The old med was hard to come off of.

qotd: EVERYTHING! I would of died a thousand deaths by now...no joke! I've been obsessed with food in all the bad ways lately. I kick myself over and over but still eat so much. My binge eating disorder is in full on mode and the two mixed together has just been a disaster.

B: just egg, chicken sausage, banana and coffee before

L: PP shake with 2 ozs of espresso

D: not sure yet...we have the kids all day today so who knows

S: popcorn, freeze dried apples and maybe a chai tea

40 F and 6 foot 1 inches

hi all

weekend went well. I ate a Chinese buffet yesterday, too much food... I actually just did a bite or two of everything but still added up. anyway - I didn't feel too hot yesterday even before the food so anyway... on a plus ive never tried cactus before and did yesterday. this was a hybrid Chinese buffet that had a lot of Hispanic dishes also mixed in.

We did a meet and greet with our new dog sitter at 5:30 to see if it will work for our CA trip next month (san diego). she was really nice and seemed responsible enough to feed and poop 4 dogs, watch for bears/snakes and not steal our stuff. so I think it will work out.

today DH is picking up more groceries. and I will prep more food.

QOTD is unspoken until later...

My goals this week are:

walk 4 miles total

lift 2-3 days this week

stay under my macros and not eat at another buffet lol
