    I was remembering when your garage was smashed closed that was dramatic! I remember the waiting you went through while your hubby was between jobs. And I recall the video from the dark in your parents yard while you visited (I think it was Thanksgiving or Christmas)

You're videos are good to watch emoticon

    My B/F always drinks that Dr. Pepper 10. Some stores don't carry it. And the ones that do have one small row of it. I like to snack on those chocolate animal crackers that Walmart carries. They are low in calories and sugar. Its 16 cookies per serving. I eat them low to make them last longer. Its a good cheap treat.
i haven't lost any weight this year. And I have cut portions and ate alot of fruit and veggies. I am so stuck at the same weight. Im thinking its not drinking enough water. At least we TRY TRY again. Were putting forth the effort to make other decisions on what we eat.

    "Successful day in the books!" Just like you said. emoticon emoticon emoticon Each successful day makes the difference big-time then a non-successful day. Just remember that as long as your most days are successful, you will be successful! We don't have to be 100% perfect every day. That used to be my hang-up and then I'd give up and never get an success. You're doing it! emoticon and I will too! emoticon

    Okay so here's my scoop for you, and you can take it or leave it LOL!! ;) This is just based on my experiences, but the thing of it is, people learn how to treat you... Before I was doing something about my weight, people liked to give me goodies, they always knew I was ordering dinner at work (one person has to go get it for everyone since we can't leave) and they would make sure to ask me because they knew I ALWAYS ordered food. Then I started this healthy journey and I said no to a lot of stuff. Now it is to the point where they ask (because they HAVE to ask everyone) but they are already walking away before I get out my "no thanks", because the NEW me doesn't typically order dinner or partake in treats. Do I sometimes do it? Absolutely. So you need to decide what is normal for the new you. If it was normal for the old you to always have donuts or always do this or that, that is what people know of you. Which might be why your dad brought you the donut, if that was always something you thought was "nice and thoughtful", that is what he thinks as well. But if the new you is serious about getting healthy, you will learn to turn things down SOMETIMES (not all the time, as you said being deprived isn't good), and they will learn that you don't ALWAYS indulge in treats. They will also ask less frequently so you won't be tempted.

Working in treats is easy, I find it easier for exmaple if my meal plan is 1200 that way I have 300 extra to get to my 1500 limit and can use that for "fun stuff", you just have to plan for it. And shooting a little lower for those "surprises" helps too. I really want to see you do well, I know you have a lot of rough times, but I hope you get to the breaking point where you want this so badly nothing can stop you, because you TRULY DESERVE THIS!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm so glad that it worked for me now! Your work place looks lovely and so functional. I hope you have tons of good memories and alot less stress from being there with your parents. emoticon I have to tell you, from my own experience, that being strong is when we tell the person that you can't eat that and explain to him that you're trying to get healthy. He could still bring you something healthy or flowers like someone else said. He'll get it straight when you be firm and when he sees you looking thinner and lithe, he'll know that you're serious! Yes, I believe in a treat every now and then. You know, some Skinny Cow candy bars are yummy and you could easily count that with no problem if you allow for it. Also, the Skinny Cow ice cream bars and WW ice cream bars are yummy too and count easily. Skinny Cow has a wafer type chocolate candy bar that just melts in your mouth! WW has these Raspberry Dark Chocolate sherbet bars that are so yummy this time of the year. WW has a ice cream bar that mimics the Snickers ice cream bars kind of, and so yummy for a sneak-in treat. You can see that I love my treats too! Good luck to you and emoticon with the strength you have had this far! You deserve a pat on the back! emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Why would your Dad bring you a donut? I don't think that was thoughtful as you called it. I actually think it was unthoughtful. Sorry, I know it's your Dad but. . . . You need to tell him not to bring you donuts or anything unhealthy. Have him bring you beautiful summer fruit or flowers for your desk. Also it has to be your responsibility to say thanks but no thanks to the donut and give it back to him.

You're young and this is the time to get the weight off before medical problems happen. Maybe start a new tradition at work (you said your parents own the company) and go for a walk for a half hour after lunch with your Dad. Have him contribute to his daughter getting healthy. The best gift he can give you.

Good luck

    Top notch business facility! It is beautiful! Hopefully, you won't have all the stress and worry that came with your previous jobs and you can put more focus on getting healthy. Oh, did I spy a Longaberger basket on that counter? I am a lover of them! You look so happy and vibrant, keep up the good work! emoticon

    I've been wondering how you've been doing and I was so glad to see you made another vlog. Yippee and even more Yippee with hearing that you're doing better!! Did I hear you right when you said that your parents have bought a house in Wheaton? If so, that's only about 40 miles from us. It would be so cool to meet up with you one day, wouldn't it?! Let me know if that's the town you said. Have a super good week! Hugs, Karen

    Glad to have you back! I'm sure you had a blast @ Gull Lake. You're doing so well with your choices! I have to say that I love those Fiber One Lemon Bars too. Oh my, I could eat a whole box and I've noticed that our WalMart has trouble keeping them stocked, so there must be alot of people that love them!! I'll have to try those other varieties you mentioned. Those Triscuit Thins too. Yum!! I know that I have to measure those kind of things too or I'm over the top! Why is it that it has to be the carbs that are so naughty for us because they seem to be the best for snacking! Even fruit is carbs! Moderation is the key to all of this that we're doing. Keep on keeping on. You're doing it!! emoticon emoticon

    Walking is really good for you. The sun gives you vitamin D, but you can wear a hat or visor and that will help keep the sun off your head/out of your eyes at least. I'm sure Toby appreciated his walk! emoticon
I eat the frozen dinners too, just be mindful b/c they are LOADED with sodium, in case that's an issue for you.
Oh and girl, no diet soda. If you can limit yourself with the soda and it's a "treat" like you said, even my doctor said it's better to drink regular than the drink diet. Yes there are no calories, but the aspartame (artificial sweetner) is SO bad for you!!
Hope you get to feeling better, I know what you mean, you think it's allergies, then bam it hits you like hello Mr Cold! lol emoticon
