    I actually feel less attached to a number when I do it everyday, almost like I get numb to it.

    the thing about the sugars...I saw an article (Dr. Lustig I think) that essentially said that sugar is toxic, and since I had an aunt with diabetes, and I had gestational diabetes, I figured I better pay attention. He thinks that up to 35g of sugar for men, and up to 25g for women is the about the threshold for where issues begin. I had 37g yesterday, but then again, I definitely had some sweets too, so that is not that bad.

    I have not be weighing everyday. Maybe a couple times a week, which I find as progress for me. I have to remind myself though that its not about the number, its about health.

    While I know it is about the health and not the number, mentally I also know that I can't get to good health at this number. The best I can do is the best health I can do at this weight. So, for now, the number has meaning. But literally, a daily weigh in jumbles the number in my brain and I cannot remember yesterday's number, usually not even today's. I do record it for posterity though.

    p.s. who the heck is posterity anyway?

    OMG, just bag it. First binge in a very long time...combo of starting something new tomorrow, not losing weight, not getting enough sleep. ARGH, feel like crap.

    thank God, tomorrow is another NEW day.

    Yes. You will be fine. Well done analyzing why it happened.

    Thanks. Now, prevent it in the future!

    So here is something very cool. Yesterday we, dh and I, were chatting with a friend and starting talking about our parents, theirs and ours. My hubby's parents were German, very German, American, but very German in personality. Straight, reserved, even keel. My parents were/are the party people. My dad has, on more than one occasion, taken up a collection at a reception to pay the band to keep playing so the party won't end! Anyway, then we got to wondering what our kids would say about us. What brand of parents are we?

    Couldn't stand the wondering, so I asked my kids today.

    Oh, you are the fun party one always welcome everyone into our home with a warm smile and lots of great food, dad is the straight reserved one asking deep questions that stun people into silence. My daughter said I would be the one organizing craft fairs, gardening around the home, painting, knitting, and setting up wheel chair races-even if I am not in one, and her dad will be sleeping in a lazy boy with the tv blaring some stupid news show.

    It is fantastic to know they don't see me as lazy, one of these days I will let go of that vision of myself.

    259.2, even after the binge I am down 2/10ths, go figure.

    Today is another day. This morning, I am having my coffee, with a T (weighed) of HWC. Then after the treadmill, I will do a light version of BPC (1 tablespoon each of HWC, coconut oil, kerrygold) with a splash of stevia. We will see if this helps energy levels as well as weight loss. Kinda excited. I know it is not a true IF, but I'll get there.

    That's so cool, to have the courage to ask your kids how they see you (!), and the great answer.

    courage? Mostly I was scared that I had let them down and they would have no response, a sort of shoulder shrug. I figured I still have a year or so I could make up for anything I missed doing.

    I watch Mama Mia (repeatedly-LOVE it) while I do the treadmill. And there is one song about the things she had planned and they didn't get to. It tears me up every time, truly bothered lately about the things I let get by, things I can't be or do, etc. Feels a bit like a mid life crisis, so it was very helpful to hear their responses!

    So the third night in a row with crappy sleep. I feel oddly awake right now, but know that when I am tired I gravitate to the kitchen, gotta get out of the house this afternoon.

    So this morning I had my usual cup of coffee with a tablespoon of HWC (I weigh it), then the treadmill for 30 minutes. And now I am drinking a version of BPC...16oz strong coffee, 1T kerrygold, 1T coconut oil, 1T HWC, and a splash of stevia. This gives me 333 calories, 1 carb, 36g of fat (about half of the days fat), 2g of protein, and no sugars. BUT it also gives me no fiber and no fruits or veggies yet. So I gotta make it up later somehow.

    I just saw a study that says drinking a lot of coffee is actually good for you, of course it was probably funded by Starbucks, but hey, it works for me!

    I am wondering if I would feel better if I did a smoothie for lunch (which is usually around 1pm) and didn't sit at the computer. If I would feel less lethargic at 2pm? I think I will give it a try this afternoon-see if I keep moving I will not realize how tired I am?
