Day 21

Where are all these days getting to? I have not a clue.

Lost 1.2 at WI today. I'm averaging 1 pound a week, and that's a fine start by all accounts. I'm not unhappy. I still have 79 days left and who knows what my body has in store for me once it stops boo-hooin' over the allergies.

This past week was a decent one, and I'm expecting the next week to be just as good. I've got menu ideas for the upcoming week. I want focus on getting de-stressed so I think I might go to Rest and Relaxation yoga at my gym on Friday and then maybe a massage Saturday afternoon. Once I get the stress management thing underway, I'll consider other things. Meanwhile, I'm allergic to the world and as a result, I can't go running or bike riding. Maybe I'll get back into the weights. Only time will tell....but I'll keep you posted.

While I was at my meeting tonight, another member said exactly what I truly believe...that many of us actually have an eating disorder (usually food addiction) and we need to go to meeting just like the people who go to AA or NA. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one at my meeting who feels that way! The last time I spoke to someone about it they thought I was nuts.

The other cool thing that happened is that there is a sudden and huge interest in Core. I got to participate so much more than I usually do (at this new meeting, at the old meeting I talked a lot). Very cool!

Yay for Core! I know I have an eating disorder. I think anyone who thinks they can comfort themselves with food must. But I am so glad I rejoined WW. It's a definite help to get other view points and ideas. This last one about divvying up points to go through the day has given me a strength I didn't think I possessed!

I'm sorry you are suffering from allergies. I take flonase and clarinex and sometimes even over the counter sinus & allergy meds. Austin either has mold or pollen or ragweed or some kind of crap floating around, and I'm allergic to it all! Feel better, but in the meantime, weights sound great!

We are kicking butt, huh?! 30 in 100? YES!

I'm so glad you had a positive experience at your WW meeting. Sometimes that can make all the difference.

I hate it when people look at me like I am nuts or have two heads. I totally believe the idea that we all have an eating disorder.

Congrats on the loss. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the meeting.
