    Yes, you will be there one day. But in the meanwhile, enjoy the process.

    I'm actually aiming for 133 on this scale, seeing as it lies a little. Of course, it's all negotiable as we get there.

    That's what I'm figuring, Tomi. Probably sometime in the New Year. After 3 1/2 years, it will seem weird to not be trying to lose weight. I'm already starting to shift gears a bit, thinking more and more of getting in shape.

    My walk today didn't go well. So cold out there, and my thin-soled shoes just weren't keeping me warm enough. I guess I'll have to do some dancing...

    I've been a bad girl.

    I was too tired last night, and it led to bingeing. *sigh*

    Oh well, back on the horse. It just goes to show that you never become invulnerable. The good news is, perfection is not required. Doing a good job most of the time suffices.

    Today I had bacon (about 4 slices, maybe 5) and scrambled eggs with cheese for brunch. I am going to make sure I don't get both tired and hungry again; it's not a good combination. Other than that, working on finances and trying to ignore the incoming rain clouds. I think errands will wait for another day.

    Yep, fatigue leads to binging with me too, especially if there are binge-worthy foods around. I've done my best to eliminate them, but there are still some. Fortunately SO will eat any chocolate that is anywhere in the house, so I don't have to deal with that particular temptation. My biggest problem is eating more that I should of the foods that I make for dinner.

    That was actually one of the nice aspects of the potato thing, weigh out and cook a set amount of food for the day and divide it into so many meals, period. No uncertainty. I sometimes wish for people chow that I could just measure out and eat like I feed my cat!

    +1 on fatigue = bingeing! Been doing that this week. I don't have much in the way of junk in the house but too much chocolate counts as junk in my book ... and then I will just graze all day on 'good' food. Just way too much. So proud of you Judg! SO very close to your goal - and really who cares exactly what the scale says as long as you can feel that you are where you need to be!

    I am still struggling with portion control, as I suspect many are. I will cook food that is supposed to be four servings...well....I can easily consume most of it. And chocolate is a problem. One square = okay. Whole bar = not okay. Another thing I suspect others have a problem with! But we will persevere and do the best we can.

    LOL!

    Doing better today.

    Had a friend over for supper last night. She has no choice, she eats primal... She got chicken slow-cooked with fresh onion, garlic, spices and coconut milk. And a salad of arugula, fennel, apple, walnuts, red onion, marinated eggplant. I personally was seriously blissed out. She chowed down pretty happily too.

    And today I finished off the salad for breakfast and then had leftover chicken served over sweet potato and topped with cooked Swiss chard and turnip greens. I was yet again blissed out, especially since all the veggies were organic this time. The Swiss chard was delivered 10 days ago, and it still looked fresher than anything in the grocery stores. It was the kind with bright red stems. I drank the broth left over from cooking. So tasty, and probably loaded with iron.

    On the downside, I stayed at home. I took NyQuil again last night, partly because I haven't entirely shaken my cold, and partly because I really wanted a good night's sleep. NyQuil shuts my head off better than anything else I've ever tried. I am quite unhappy about taking a drug to sleep, but not sleeping also is very hard on me. This is a conundrum.

    I can't help but wondering if CM's sources were right, and vinegar is something that is bad for people with CFS. There was vinegar on that salad, and I am draggy today, despite the good sleep. Then again, it might just be the cold, although I was feeling peppier a couple of days ago. Well, I will keep an eye on how things go. It could also be the fact that I've reintegrated more of the supplements into my daily routine, and I might be detoxing again. How on earth am I supposed to figure all this out? For now, I'll maintain the same supplements, and avoid vinegar until my cold is healed and I'm feeling better. Then I'll try the vinegar again.

    My life is a never-ending science experiment...

    Sorry you aren't feeling well. NyQuil I hold in reserve for when I really feel bad and need to sleep. You were busy Judg - reading and responding in multiple journals.
