I got off the couch once to get a piece of gum... it helped tons... now I've hidden (from the kids) a pack in the tv room so I can get it without going to the kitchen. While I did avoid the cookies at 11:00... the reason that I wanted them so bad is because I had about 6 an hour before that with my ice cream. I suppose there is a small victory here.... I counted all the points and I didn't go back for more...

Did anyone watch " Ruby" last night? I got sucked into it and it was pretty good! I realized a few things about myself and will be applying as such. I now have a calendar marked with my weekly goal weight. If I succeed, I can be 150 lbs BEFORE my 31st birthday! Kinda frightening, but I'm really sick and tired of being like " Oh well, maybe next year..."

What is Ruby???

Nevermind... I think I figured it out... I don't know if I get this show... but I'm going to check out the website...

Jessica: Okay just to confirm... was it the season 3 episode 1 you're talking about... it's available on the US itunes site... not even sure if I can get it (here in Canada) but if I can I don't want to get the wrong one...

I'm not sure...It was on Style. I THINK it was the first episode of a new season...She has a visit with a new therapist and they use the 12 step program to relate to overeating/ bingeing.( we have DISH, so I don't know how that translates to your neck of the woods...)

What about her childhood?! She keeps saying that she doesn't remember anything before 13. ( Didn't see Oprah. They don't have it on our local affiliate anymore)
Comment by Trish on February 18, 2010 at 1:08am
Oh... I think I saw her on Oprah... except I had no idea who she was b/c we don't get her show...

So I was eating the cookies in the pantry and I wanted to finish them off... while I was eating them I opened up this site and it gave me the strength to choose a piece of gum instead... so thanks... I think I only used 6 extra points today (all at that momment) so thanks guys!!

@ Christine - I totally do that, then you get even more bummed out, I have really made an effort not to get on the scale between set weigh days, cause then I start obsessing.
@Trish - Great job on picking up the gum instead of the cookies!

I will probably make lifetime tonight with WW. And I am sitting here trying to help myself be excited and proud. Instead I just have strangely negative feelings. And I KNOW that is not a good thing. I need to take this accomplishment and not kill it. I need to enjoy it and continue to lose the next 9 pounds I want to lose. And when I get there, I need to be stronger than I've ever been.
After WW, I am going out to buy myself new clothes. Something sexy and fun. I am going to take as long as I need to find something I really like. Perhaps I will take a picture tomorrow night to post it.
I keep checking in here just to stay out of my kitchen and keep myself sane. Food seems horribly obsessive to me this week. Worse than it has been through all of my 10 months of losing the 53 pounds.
And by the way, I hate stepping on the scale in the morning and seeing crappy numbers. Sets me off totally. And I WISH it didn't!!!!!!!!!!! I KNOW this is a process that has ups and downs, and they are both okay and needed.
Oh well.
Hope you are all well.
