Jenn - good luck with the paper - you can do it girl! Look at all the papers you've knocked out already - don't let the size of this one intimidate you. Will you have to go before a board and "defend" your thesis?
As for the carb binge........ I agree with Tasha -- time to reel it in. Especially when you always feel like crap afterwards. Is the food really worth the after effects? I finally decided that even my beloved Lorne Doone cookies were not worth feeling nauseous and bloated and chose to give them up. Maybe you could find a different strategy to deal with the occational parties and events that bring foods that will make you feel yucky. I've seen the suggestion to eat a full meal of good healthy primal food before you go to the party so you won't fill up on the carbs and junk food. Or you could plan a fast for that day - eat a good filling breakfast of things you love and then fast until breakfast the next day.
I'm dealing with how to navigate the weekends hubby wants to have rum. Upcoming vacation will be a challenge. I'm thinking - if I mix them all myself - I can put as little or NONE into my glass as I want and he'll never know. Course, that will leaves me drinking diet coke poisons.......... so I'm considering taking juice instead for me. But - thats a lot of carbs! I'll figure it out - I just don't want my vacation to be the pitfall of my good success on the HFLC path. This WOE really works for me and I plan to get to goal with it! 179.2 today ............. goal 132 = 47 pounds to go. easy peasy!
