  • Editing my illustration for a 100-day Instagram challenge. I'm drawing "100 Days of Moods" and today's mood is: when you're hanging out with friends and your social battery dies. Yesterday's mood was: trying my best.

  • Eating a bowl of soup before indulging in pizza. I had let myself get too hungry and knew I was in danger of inhaling too many slices. The soup to took the edge off and I enjoyed two small pieces and felt perfectly satiated.

  • Savory oatmeal has become my go-to in the morning because it's so easy to add a little butter or an egg to it!
  • Researching the menu before going out to a celebratory dinner and having a plan. Stuck to the plan, which included red wine and chocolate cake!

  • I'm so glad the psyllium is working for you too! Yes, they do say that if you have a predisposition to hurl to make sure you only try a little bit at first since throwing up the gel would be very bad indeed. I didn't have any problem with it - I add about a quarter cup of green juice or smoothie to it and don't let it sit…
  • A motivational sign I saw posted online that said: If you quit now, you'll end up right back where you first began. And when you first began, you were desperate to be where you are RIGHT now. KEEP GOING! It really resonated with me because even though I'm making slow progress, it's progress that I felt was impossible this…
  • Weighing myself every day helps because my weight can fluctuate so much from day to day. It takes away the pressure of a weekly weigh-in (and the disappointment that can follow if there's no progress). When I look at the big picture of weight trends, I don't get discouraged and self-sabotage on a "4lbs up" day.
  • @goal06082021 I'm so terribly sorry for this devastating news, which surely has turned your world upside-down. We will all be here to help however we can, especially as you navigate this time of not being able to tell the rest of your family. Please take good care of yourself and reach out as much as you need to.

  • What worked for me today was completely ignoring the bulk candy section at IKEA. It's been my weakness in the past -- I LOVE to eat their gummy candy while shopping >:) -- but today I decided that having a little would only make me want more. It was easier to just avoid it altogether. And so I did.
  • I really love this, because anything from the vending machine probably wouldn't have stopped the hunger for long anyway.
  • Recognizing that I'm grieving (we had to put our dog down yesterday and she was my soul mutt) and that eating those feelings is simply not going to work. In fact, it's just piling disappointment on top of sadness. Instead I'm sitting with the grief, continuing to eat healthily, and simply allowing myself to be in pain.

  • What worked for me today was a cup of dessert tea with a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top. It was only 50 calories but it was a delicious after-dinner treat.
  • Metamucil is made up of about 80% Psyllium Husk. Basically PH is a soluble fiber and (this may be TMI but I don't have any problems talking about poop) it wasn't until I started drinking it that I sort of understood how it all works. The husks form a sort of gel if it sits in water too long, so you have to drink it right…
