    Yesterday, I spent the day with my husband. It was nice. We talked about Mom some, but mostly just had fun together,


    Starting a clean whole 30 like program today. No AS and no dairy.
    Low carb by choice except maybe one day/ week when I will add a potato or rice

    Exception: Whey protein drink with splenda. It is in the mix so there is nothing I can do. I have to weigh the negative of AS against the positive of the extra protein.

    hey, I have switched to this protein, no additives, no flavoring, add it to what ever you want. Actually cheaper than what I was using.

    Confession: I'm in my sixth straight day of binging. Tired, frustrated, sad and PMSing. Stress at work, job situation for my husband, money troubles, lingering grief. Hoping to get my shit together this weekend.

    hugs, I know from experience that it is like trying to stop a speeding train. Go easy on yourself, it will actually make it easier.

    I wish had some words of wisdom to offer here. I too have been struggling with the lingering grief and other things this month. Take care of yourself!

    I'm feeling for you, Pebbles. Sometimes it seems that trying to eat right is just another stressor, doesn't it? But things change, hang in there. Good for you for keeping at it it, but if you don't, well, Scarlett was right. Tomorrow IS another day. And so is next Wednesday. Don't be too hard on yourself.

    Thanks for the support.

    I would love to just keep eating, but A) I am killing myself and B) None of my clothes fit C)I am less able to deal with the swirl of crap going on around me.

    My husband is very depressed, silent and easily pissed off. He has applied for six jobs in the last two months and has not gotten even an interview. We believe that they are looking at his birth date, and not even considering him. He will be 53 in November. We cannot make it on my salary alone. God knows we should be able to, but we don't. I guess now is a good time to become better at budgeting. We have nothing to complain about.

    That's the same age as my Honey. They are entering the prime of their working life, yet some people already think they are getting too old. Plus, they have a lot of experience, which you would think would be a GOOD thing, but it gets turned into being 'over-qualified' or 'too expensive' to hire. It is always something, isn't it.

    And not even getting interviews is rough. You feel like you are being rejected without even getting a chance to show your stuff. I feel for him. And you. Being the supportive spouse is HARD!

    I had to go buy some new underwear because all my old panties are too tight with the Kummerspeck I have packed on during our current bout of unemployment. It was making me feel like I was stuffed into a too small sausage casing.

    I've been shopping at the Salvation Army for bigger clothes. I'm not willing to pay full price for my misbehavior. I don't buy underwear there, of course.

    It seems that if you aren't in your 30s or early 40s, your resume is automatically tossed. Hoping and sending happy wishes for your husband.
