    thank you for being honest. I don't expect perfection, and I gain a lot from your honest journey, I am sure you gain more from your honesty than if you had given in to the easy way and lied, either by statement or omission.

    Everybody's saying what I wish I could say today. So take their words on my behalf . The idea of a Valentine's Day donut sounds really good to me (local donut shop has the best, and they're open very early, so I could surprise Hulky), but when I think of actually eating one, I think of how it mostly tastes like flour and sugar, and that's not very fulfilling or interesting to me. Weird.

    Funny, most of my upset is based on failing the EMF group and having to report a gain for the week on Friday. I don't even have any helpful observations to report about the changes I made to combat fatigue, because the binges started at the same time. I am probably feeling energetic today because I am high on sugar.

    Yeah, the commercial had me wanting one of the brownie batter filled ones. Really, it wasn't anything that special. Now the craving is out of my system.

    I drive by a donut place every morning (it's even the Southern Maid, which are the only decent donuts around here.) Each morning, I flirt with the thought of a donut or an eclair. Each morning, I remember that they probably fry in cottonseed oil and the donuts are probably lukewarm at best. Each morning, I think bittersweet thoughts damning PB as I keep driving.

    Bummer.

    On to a better day.

    And watch out for a crash from your sugar high. Be ready with any remedies that help.

    Well then, it has served its purpose. That's good!

    You'll have the next few days to monitor and see if something helps with the fatigue. When I led a Whole30 thread on here early in 2012, reporting in there and checking in with other members kept me on track. But it's important to remember that you are truly only accountable to yourself. We are all proud of you, and we are all responsible for our own behavior (I worried sometimes that if I went off track, someone else would too). I'm not sure I'm saying what I want to say here, but I guess I am hoping you won't be hard on yourself for this.

    Oh, good call. Might want to be ready with some bouillon?

    Paula, how many times have you binged since the first of the year? Not many. How often were you binging last year. A lot more than that. Celebrate the victory, learn from the failure. You are a wonderful lady and cannot expect 100% compliance from the get-go on a behavior that has been around for a long time.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Paula, why should you feel like you are failing the EMF group? To me, it's encouraging to see people lead a journey that isn't perfect. Sometimes I get depressed reading Mark's Friday success stories. I swear to heavens everyone there gets to their goal in a matter of a few short months. Which, by the way, I totally celebrate...but, it's not me and I can't relate as well. I'm sometimes not sure I'll ever to get my goal weight. So, reading honest journeys of ups and downs, and coming back from the downs, there's a lot there and that's NOT a failure.
