    Today's been rough because Boyfriend is having a resurgence of his mental health issues and I have had a migraine most of the day. I got the shopping done, came home, and went right to bed, and we ordered pizza for dinner because I just did. not. have. it. And, you know, he wanted pizza. So we'll see how that sits with me. It worked within my calories, at least.

    Tremendously excited to see inside the house tomorrow. Of course, if we like it there will have to be a home inspection to check for issues we can't see, and all of that stuff, and we'll have to call the bank and arrange the financing. But for this amount of space, for this price, in good shape, there's very little that would totally put me off it. I hate to say it, but I suspect that some of the reason it hasn't sold yet is that the racial composition of the area is changing and, um, some people in this city are racist. (sigh) Decent houseproud middle class people are people I can live beside, regardless of their color, and it's a decent quiet middle class neighborhood.

    @bidingmytime you can do this. Just think of where you'll be in a month or two whenever you get the urge not to log. And welcome!

    Yes! Thank you. That's why I'm going to make sure to keep coming back here. Great place to keep the motivation going and push myself to succeed.
    and I forgot to weigh the whole thing in grams. And now he's eaten some so my weighing wouldn't be accurate and :unamused:

    Oh, my OCD nightmare! One of the reasons I tend to shy away from making recipes while counting calories: always afraid it's not accurate enough.

    @bidingmytime I felt every word you said about the havoc on your OCD, I am exactly the same way, I have a spreadsheet for my daily weight that I also log on Libra lol, then I have my weekly measurements (waist, hips, arms, calves, etc.), then I have my Cal in, cal out, deficit table....I have been approaching this like a full time job. And it is! But my family and I deserve this!

    @lbostic89 That's so awesome! Quite commendable. I need to do this, too. Especially the measurements. How do you accurately measure yourself in those areas? I feel like when I try to do it, I may be too high or too low and not in the proper spot (i.e. thighs is a tough one for me to figure out).
