First, let me apologize for not checking in for FOUR WHOLE DAYS! Wow! I didn't realize it had been so long!

Welcome to Chris! I hope we see more of you on this thread.

Debby - How did your son's interview go? It seems like you broke your plateau. emoticon Congrats on being in a size 12 and shopping in the Misses section again. I detest shopping in the "fat lady stores" and CAN'T WAIT until I can shop in regular department stores again. That is one of the main motivators for me. I have been getting rid of my too big clothes and have very little left. There is actually a charity in a nearby town that gives away used clothing to whomever wants it at no charge to help people who are struggling financially. I went Friday and found a pair of khakis in great shape and a navy sweater for myself, as well as a couple of sweaters for my daughter. It is a wonderful idea, especially since I don't want to spend a lot of money on new clothes at this point, since I plan to keep losing weight. Unfortunately, there are always those people that take advantage of others trying to help. One of the volunteers there told me some people leave with multiple trash bags full of the best clothes, which they then sell on ebay for profit. It's too bad that people are like that. I can totally relate to your vet bills, by the way. My dog has chronic problems with her stomach and needs ridiculously overpriced food. On top of that, one of my cats keeps getting bladder infections / crystals. Last year I spent $3,000 on emergency surgery for him so his bladder didn't explode. He got another blockage this summer, which of course required office visits, bloodwork, urinalysis, and more expensive pet food! If it happens again, I will have to put him to sleep, because I just can't afford it. I love the cat, though.

Tricia - Thank you so much for sharing the cranberry / apple dish. I am definitely going to try it. OK, true confession time...any you guys are the only ones who know this besides my kids...when I was not eating well, I would crave the topping on apple crisp...not the apples, just the topping! I would mix up the butter, oats, cinnamon and brown sugar and eat it straight out of a bowl. There...now you all know the ugly truth! I'm happy to see this one doesn't have any butter in it at all.

Tammyand - You are so right...40 lbs is A LOT! Think of it as carrying around 4 ten pound bags of potatoes all day! Your poor knees! I know what you feel about the happiness when you realize you have a healthy cart of food. True Confession #2 -- I peek at what other people put on the conveyor belt at the grocery store. I'm not proud of it, but I do!

P&B - My cousin lives in Juneau, AK, and she actually gets bear tracks in her backyard. One time she came home and found out that a black bear had gotten into the hummingbird feeder she had hanging on her back porch. There were sticky paw prints all over her window screen and porch. With that and your mountain lions, I'm starting to think the bunnies eating my garden aren't too bad!

AURORADAWN - I have many, many half finished crafts as well! And there are even more that I bought material / yarn / kits for and never started. I finished a cross stitch for my daughter's nursery last year. The only problem is that she was 15 years old by that time! LOL. Going to save it for when she has her own kids, since the nursery has been replaced by splatter paint!

HEALTHNUT - I hope you are still checking in here and that you haven't quit. As someone else mentioned, just take it one pound at a time and before you know it, the weight will be off. The great thing about this team is that we all can relate to how you feel. People here are so supportive! You are not alone!

As for me.....this week has been a bit rough in terms of depression and anxiety. I have a great sub job today and am booked up for the next couple of weeks, which is relieving a lot of the pressure. I have overeaten a bit and underexercised a bit, but not as bad as it would have been in the past. I am really looking forward to having a warm weekend to finish the yard work and boost those exercise minutes.

Bye for now!

Laura
