Hey Birdy, I'm just grateful for your presence so ask away. Sleeps ok. As far as the biggest loser, well, we are all just not doing it. I was in the lead and then gained the 5 lbs back. sigh. I'm back on it today. In the last few months I have struggled more than I have since I started this in 2009. I've gained and lost and gained about 10-12 lbs from my lowest and don't want to go further. That approx 95 lbs I lost was hard work and I don't want to gain it all back and I see it coming. The only thing that has saved me is some good habits- bringing lunch to work, etc. I've been drinking more alcohol in the last few months too and that isn't helping at all. So I'm thinking I need to just go back to the basics. Do what I did in the beginning but more diligently. That means posting food and stinkin thinkin, reading the sites, using the feedback, etc. So this is where I'm at. I know that just losing unhealthy behavior and not replacing with healthy habits is not successful for me. If I'm not going to eat for example, when I'm anxious I need to do something else to deal. That's it. I'm not going to think this to death. I just want to do the healthy eating and get the support and give some as well when I can. In some ways I'm ashamed of still struggling but I'm still in a much better place than when I started and if I have to continue seeking support to be healthy, I will. Shame has never done much for me so I'll just ignore it and let the crazies out right here.
