    Breakfast:
    1 peach, 1 cherry dark chocolate Kashi granola bar. lots of water.

    Not sure what's going on the rest of the day for me. It's hard to plan meals for myself when I don't have a kitchen.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing okay. I had stopped taking my depression medication for a few days - and once I hadn't taken it for a while, I didn't really have the motivation to take it. It was a bad downward cycle. I also noticed that when I wasn't taking my medication I didn't ever really get hungry. Anyways, I was talking to DH on the phone, after blubbering to him that I was worried that our GOLDFISH was going to die (guys, goldfish die all the time. it's NOT the end of the world) and he made me promise to take my meds last night and then take a nap. I woke up a few hours later and felt a world of different. Anyways, I had a few bad days, but I'm still hanging in there.

    Sister-in-law's house has a scale, but it's not digital. But I check every once in a while and I'm still at ~190~. ISH. I think a little less. But who knows? Those numbers are so dang tiny.

    Hope everyone is having a good day
    -Kali

    Yea Rachael, working your way back down like me!

    Aussie, STOP that sick stuff. "Ain't nobody got time for that"!

    Kali, Hooray! You're back! All's right with the world! DH is a good guy to help you get on track again.

    Kim, about time girlie. Been missing you here. Don't sweat the repounding cause you'll knock it off in no time. Unlike me, you've got MUSCLES! And SHOULDER KNOBS! Those suckers burn calories even when you're lying in bed all day.

    Breakfast - smoothie of skim milk, banana, frozen cherries, frozen peaches

    Had an amazing miracle day Sunday when I walked normally with no pain. First day since January 15th. Then I went to PT yesterday. I felt something get wrenched a bit and here I am today hobbling again. Rats. The good news is that at least I know pain free is a possibility! Here's hoping I see it again soon.

    That's not a binge Mardee! You are doing fine. Just hang in til dinner and continue to eat healthily for the day. Sometimes when you've been restricting calories for a while, your body just gets hungry and you have to listen to it. It wants nutrients, which you gave it. It is not crying out for a big bag of Cheetos and moose tracks, however. That could turn into a binge!
