TGIF!

I don't know about you guys, but this week has been DRAGGING for me!  If I'm being totally honest, I very much thought about not going to my meeting last night.  But, I knew that wouldnt' be the best decision, so I went, and I actually showed a small loss (surprisingly!).  Down .8, which is almost a pound, which is progress.  Something is better than nothing!

I'm trying to play catch-up with so many of your blogs... I have hundreds of unread items in my reader! I'm sad to hear that some of you have been having some tough times in your personal lives.  I hope things get better for you soon!  My family and I have also been having some struggles lately, though I won't detail them here.  I've been focused on these other issues and haven't made myself a priority.  I'm a "fixer".  I like to make things better & solve problems for others, and when I do that, my own problems get put on the backburner.  I know this is an issue I definately need to work on--to make myself a priority.  And that knowing that even if I make myself a priority, it doesn't mean that others can't be a priority too.

Planning is so key to my success, so I'm making a goal to plan plan plan next week in order to get myself totally refocused.  I got some really sage advice in a comment on my last entry--"instead of going to McDonald's I should just grab an apple or something".  It was interesting to me that it was just assumed that because I'm obese, I must be drive-thru hopping like CRAZY!  Ah, gotta love the common misconceptions about us fatties!  Sense any sarcasm, ladies?  :)  At any rate, like I said, I'm going to make an effort to plan like crazy (and hopefully try out some new recipes) this week!

I hope you all have a great weekend!  I probably won't be around much, as we've got a wedding to attend, then we've also got Father's Day stuff to do!  See you next week!

ouch. i read that comment. i think it came across harsher than it was meant to. i thought it was kinda cool that she compared over-eating to being an alcoholic. because thats how it is for ME. (not that its true for everyone.) but i am addicted to FOOD. people dont realize how hard it is to lose weight. they think. "just dont eat too much"...but that would be like telling an alcohol....just have one beer...or better yet, a diet coke. its not that easy.

SG-Totally agree with you about it being an addiction! The hard part is that drug addicts/alcoholics are enouraged through their treatment to abstain completely--a no-use recovery. Food addicts can't adopt to that philosophy! LOL. So our "drug of choice" is always going to be in our lives... makes it very tough to prevent "relapse"!
