  • I'm so pleased that this is working for you, and you have found a way to fit it in to your schedule. Have a great weekend!

    • thanks guys! It really does feel good.

      Yep it is nice feeling like I don't have to force anything - either a ton of protein or extra fat or 10 vegetables or what ever. I can't remember ever feeling quite like this. In the past when I have just eaten what I wanted it has always either been a WTF (and stopped weighing ie. gave up) or "Intuitive Eating" (which is actually just as much or more work as anything else and so doesn't really feel "normal" at all).

        • Horrible sleep and rainy drive back, lovely to spend time with DD though obviously.

          The fan on the computer has started to make very odd noises. So it is off and I am stuck with using my phone for updates. So if it doesn't self correct I will likely not have much to say till I am back at work.

          • Ugh. Hate computer problems. Our computer was 8 years old. DH just built a new, customer, computer this week. It's a dream and I'm loving it. Cost an arm and a leg, but since we keep it for a long time, it'll be worth it.

                • Omg the crying, I actually have a headache! DS made it most of the way through his sermonette (each senior who wants to gives a little talk during the service) he got to the end and, though he kept talking in a strong deep voice, tears were rolling down his cheeks. All the women in the congregation came up after and congratulated us on raising such a strong self confident and sensitive child.

                  At the end of the service the Youth all sing a song that the youth director wrote (he is a songwriter-perk of living in Nashville!) called "Take a Little With You When You Go" the seniors stand in the front row. None of them or the rest of the youth or the congregation can make it through that song without crying. The boys all bravely try to sneak a swipe to dry their eyes but the song does ya in! Then there is a luncheon where they show photos through the years of the kids. Then the parents each get to stand up and say a few words about their child. Now try to do that without crying!

                  Honestly though it is by far the best function our church puts on, a great send off for our graduating youth. And they are blown away by these scrapbooks full of letters from people in their past, and church members well wishes, and photos of course.

                  Truly a lovely event!

                    • oh wow...sounds like an amazing experience. There is something about tears that exhaust a person.. or at least me.

                      • yep, went to bed early last night and woke up this morning groggy, I think I got caught in the middle of a deep sleep part of the sleep cycle, I kind of feel dazed. I will go to bed early tonight too. DD slept all afternoon yesterday. It was good for her, she has had a hard semester and is down to 1 paper and one final, so she needed the emotional release of the crying, and all the sleep too I am sure.

                        DD was very pleased with himself, many many people congratulated him on how well he spoke and what a good talk it was, so lots of ego boosting. Plus I am sure he was happy to be done with it. While it is an amazing experience, it is emotionally draining. He slept all afternoon as well. He has only got today and tomorrow left of classes. Then he has IB Assessments on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday (one a day), then the school's finals week is next week-but he is exempt from all of those exams so he will essentially be done, except for his French IB Assessment is actually the Monday after graduation.

                        He is graduating in the top 10% of his class. Except for Valedictorian and Salutatorian our school district doesn't do any other rankings except the top 10%-which they have to do for the lottery scholarships. On his graduation robes he will have all sorts of "cords" they hang around their necks for "Graduation with Distinction" for "National Honor Society" (he was president of that), for the "Top 10%" and for "IB Diploma". His tassel is different too because of the NHS. He is very proud of himself.

                        Today we drive DD back, and I will bring home the rest of her stuff minus what she needs for the next 10 days. Amazing what that kid managed to fit into that dorm room!

                        Alrighty, I don't know how it could be true but I am retaining water. Well I know I didn't drink enough, but I sure lost a lot! Anyway puffy fingers this morning. Today is not the day I will make up for it by drinking either since I will be in the car all day. While it would be a great way to get enough water, it is obviously not great in terms of places to then expel that water. I didn't get on the scale-basically forgot.

                        Busy weekend is almost over.

                        • Well that weekend flew by, and I am still tired! The bad news...the weekend is over. The good news...today is the last day I have to wake up at 5:30! DS will be in the midst of his finals and they start later in the day.

                          My plan is to wake up at 6:45 and get straight onto the treadmill, then come back up stairs have my coffee and shower. I check my emails and this forum at work anyway, so I don't need to check it at home too. That way I can watch Jon Stewart and then still have the opportunity to get 8 hours of sleep, starting at 10:30 instead of 9:15. The later time is more natural for me as I am a bit of a night owl. Left to my own devices I would stay up until well after midnight, and wake up about 7 hours later. That is not a schedule that works well with the rest of the world as far as work and life are concerned.

                          Today is a fast day. So I will hold calories till I have a yogurt/blueberries snack when I get home from work, then do a 350 calorie dinner, probably fish and veggies.

                          Farewell to DH's boss tomorrow night, DS's graduation party is on Friday. It is a joint party with his 5 buds through school, luckily not at my house! All I have to do is show up with appetizers and help decorate.

                          Busy week ahead, but I will be ok, I get to start sleeping in!!!!

                          • Sounds like a wonderful schedule. I am, unfortunately, a morning person. DH is a night person. Sometimes, I think we are ships passing in the night

                            • my DH used to be a morning person, but he is waking up later and later, this morning it was 7am! He sleeps in his recliner in front of the tv starting about 7:30 or 8 every night though, so I am not going to give him the title of "night owl" either. More a "how the hell can you sleep so much" person.
