Calling it a victory
I'm still in my 3 month pre-op stage. One of the things I've been most concerned about is how I manage stress.....with food. However, after spending the last three days either at the hospital with a friend or at work, I'm exhausted but not overeating. I'm calling it a win!
A Good or Bad Thing
An interesting conversation was had about me yesterday. Apparently, one of the guys at work was talking to my friend about ideas as to who to set his nephew up with. My friend, being always in favor of me, suggested me. The guys response (among other things) was: she has been losing weight lately. I'm not sure if I'm happy…
Thighs - my crazy body image
I was at old navy today - trying some new tops and some capris to workout in. This should be a good thing. I've lost weight; I can buy things at old navy; most of my clothes from last summer look ridiculous on me. But then I look at my thighs. They are scary huge and ugly. I'm wondering why I want to put on a bathing suit…
I planned, I failed, looking to improve
I planned every meal for my parents trip here for the Thanksgiving weekend in excruciating detail. I knew my meal plans weren't perfect, but they were a balance between what I "should eat", reducing my number of meals, and what they will eat. Between the changes, additions, and the Italian Market (in Philly, bakeries,…
Interim Work Clothing Question
The good news is that my dress pants are getting huge on me - as in I have to wear heels to work and I'm still stepping on them. Unfortunately, one of these days I'm going to get a heel caught and fall flat on my face....not to mention that one day they wont just sit too low on my hips, but fall off..... How are you all…
NSV - I wanted to work out?
I left work yesterday afternoon and was headed South. I left about 2.5 hrs after I had planned so didn't go to the gym before I hit the road. I arrived at my hotel pretty late. The first thing I did after I got to my room was put my workout clothes on and hit their fitness center to do a half hour of cardio. I was so…
Hi all! I live in PA, but work in Newark and spend most of my life in DE. Hoping to move down one of these years. I've been on MFP for over 2 months and have steadily been losing. I hope I can get to know you all better!
Arm band suggestions
It's time to find an arm band that is big enough to go around my upper arm for my ipod touch and has a pouch for a key. I've bought a couple that didn't fit and carrying the ipod and my keys while walking is just silly. Suggestions would be fantastic!
Did really well....until dessert
I went out to celebrate my graduation with a couple of co-workers today. Between the choices, I picked an Italian restaurant with a buffet. I knew that they had fish, roasted veggies, and other "healthy-ish" options. I did really well - 2 medium plates that we only partially filled mostly veggies, meat, and a little…
Too few calories....who knew it was possible
Hi all. I just started MFP this week so I might be a bit paranoid. Now that I'm writing everything down, eating enough veggies, and drinking enough water I'm no where near my calorie targets. I've been running about 600 under target and I'm not really hungry, but I'm also constantly worried about eating too much. Any…
