Gladmorning you are superwoman! I quit smoking about 6 years ago but it took a hysterectomy and piles of pain pills to make it happen. And I struggle w/ food all the time.
Veronica, you are doing great! You have to make this work with your life. Socializing is hard and you found a way around tha twithout giving up time with your friends. And congrats on the baby. Bet she is beautiful
Demuralist keep it up! All of this is an ongoing process. We are well on our way!
Some ppl from work asked me if I wanted to go to lunch Monday (it was a teacher work day) and I said no which was really hard because I feel like I struggle to meet people and form a social circle as it is. But it was also my first DD after blowing it on Saturday and I didn't want to screw it up.
Someone (don't remember who) said that their third DD was the worst and I have to agree. I was fine until about 2 and then had the worse headache and could not quit thinking of food. I had a pt to go see after leaving school who was about an hours drive from me. So I was in the car hungry with a major headache and could not for the life of me come up w/ something I could eat. Would love some suggestions for these occasions. I ended up going to publix and getting two fried chicken legs something i have not done in a year. Overall i had around 900 calories yesterday. Sigh.....Then I was stupid enough to get on the scale and it said I gained 4 lbs! Wonder if it was salt? Ohhhh.. I had a diet coke, something I do about once a week. Double sodium. Could that cause a 4 lb gain? Someone tell me that it will go away quickly! I figure even if I eat 2000 today that is still an average of 1500 each day which is my BMR so I know it is not hte end of the world but I need some strategies to prevent from happening again.
You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.
