One thing about IF, don't force it. You will actually be surprised how easily it will happen. In my honest opinion, I wouldn't IF though. The body needs fuel and I found that IFing made life a gazillion times worse for me. I couldn't lose at all period. It could be a male/female thing, who knows but this has been my experience.
There are plenty of fish in the sea(I know, cliche'd). Good luck with the dating scene. That is one thing that I am glad to not be a part of.
Have fun on your date tonight and don't sweat the food!
Boss threw me for a loop with a change in plans, so I ended up with Chipotle for lunch. Rice, steak, tomato salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce. Delish! Still isn't killing that craving for a giant steak with mushrooms and onions though. I will have to try and manage that sometime this weekend. At least it's not a craving for cake, ha.
I can tell it's that time of the month, because I have been at the grit-my-teeth level of frustration all day today. Not exactly conducive to sitting through two hours of class and then going on a date. At least it's a movie, so I won't have to try for long to be charming. It's not really good to cancel with a "Sorry, I feel like a raging bitch, I can't make it."
Dinner was packed again. Two hardboiled eggs, Trader Joe's sausage, grapes, red pepper strips, and string cheese.
You're a lot nicer than I am. I would've canceled the date due to being a ragin' bia.

Despite the day of success with the scale, the rest of the day went to hell. Still bitchy and frustrated and things were just not going well. So, I ended up having a (small, at least) ice cappuccino from Tim Hortons, and then as a late lunch/early dinner, a big McDonald's burger, fries, and a large Coke. I don't even regret it, I'm in such a mood. I'm going to get back on track tomorrow though. By the time I was done with that Coke, I wasn't even enjoying it anymore. I don't think staying the course tomorrow will be a problem.

Not too bad - I was expecting more bloat from yesterday than that. It probably helped that I went for an hour long walk in the evening. Lunch today was also a wash, but as a plus, dinner is tuna nicoise salad and I have cooked a ton of crap for lunches and dinners this week.
Best. pot roast. recipe. EVER.
I cannot wait to eat this during the week. It just finished and smells delicious!

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
