    I’ve been up since around 3:30 am and can’t get back to sleep so I’ve given up and gotten up for the day. Yesterday was kind of crappy. I ended my day grumpy and frustrated.

    So it was a super successful weekend for me. I ate within my calorie range this weekend and made good food choices. We didn’t eat out so that helped too.

    I've been doing so well nutrition wise all week long. Staying close to my calorie range and only venturing over a bit on two days to 1600. I'm more comfortable with this calorie range then trying to stay under 1500 calories. I will probably have to adjust this but for now my goal is to stay around 1... Read more

    I know, it's not great but after seeing 224 on Monday morning I'll take the 217. I was lucky this time. I didn't binge so hard I felt defeated. I over ate and knew I was doing it.
