DaddyTrevor, I have found that I am that way about food & nutrition. I don't have to log it, but some of the changes that I have made that are absolutely ingrained now probably seem a bit spastic to people who don't know me well. Maybe they do to people who do know me as well, I don't know. LOL!! But I think that it is really cool that you are that serious and enthusiastic about your exercise!!

And EducGrad, that is really cool about your friend! I hope that you will send me her username when she gets her page up so I can get over and greet her!!

I'm turning into an exercise addict, but there are worse things. Not a day goes by where I don't get in some serious exercise. Spark has drawn on my obsessive/compulsive tendencies in a mostly positive way in this regard. I'm no longer happy with getting less the the maximum fitness minutes every day and then some. There may be a day when I decide enough already, but for now, this is good. Thanks for the support!

That is great Edugrad.

Yeah, I bought two pairs of pants today. One for work and one pair of jean capris. I cannot remember the last time I wore jeans! I am going to take some of my pants to the tailor and see what magic he can do!

Thanks!

Betsy, that is wonderful!! I know how you feel, but remember this is transitional, don't be proud, just get some inexpensive clothes until you reach goal weight. You are doing so great, keep up the good work!!

And EducGrad, that is cool!! I have been there once, it is pretty neat!!

Hi all, for the first time in church last night several people kept mentioning how big my clothes are on me and shouldn't I go shopping! Yes, my pants are really starting to fall off of me but I hate to spend money on clothes that i don't plan on wearing for long!

Just had to share my non-scale victory today - I researched the food menu online for a work lunch, mentally selected my choices and actually stuck to them at the restaurant. I have NEVER done that before! It was still alot of calories since restaurant food is just ridiculous and even the 'healthy' items are not really that healthy but I am extremely proud to report this accomplishment!

3 more weeks til I'm cleared for a pool. I am looking into swimming classes actually. I am considering an intermediate class at the Optimist or Millbrook pools but I might have to be a chicken and take the beginner one first to get used to water again! Otherwise though I've had 6 days of exercise in a row. Tonight will be 7 and then I'm taking a break on Tues since I will have an all day mtg at work that includes a dinner afterwards which usually last a long time.

Way to go, EducGrad! That is great, I know how hard it can be to start to get back on track, I am working on that myself!!

And Shannon - good for you!! You are doing really great, are you allowed to swim again yet? I was just thinking that if you are, that would be easier on your foot, less weight on it... ?
