  1. Going to see dad tomorrow

    Yes, it's very true...when you're a young bipolar patient, you feel it's ok to go off meds once you feel better. It's sooo not. It's so hard to take care of yourself when so many people are counting on you...I'm out of my mind trying to do everything that everything else needs, and trying to take care if my needs too. So many of us, especially women, give until it hurts. We lose ourselves in the process. You can only do so much in 24 hours...the decisions are impossible at times. Take good care of yourself, and please try to takr better care of yourself than I am right now ❤️
  2. Going to see dad tomorrow

    Thank you, Tracy...I'm enjoying the time I'm spending with him as best I can. He drifts in and out as he is on dilauded, through a picc line, full time now. But I'm there, and he knows I love him...and that's the most important thing right now. I'm holding to my plan as tight as impossibly can, because I can NOT go back to where I started. I just can't. I've worked too hard and come too far to throw it all away. I'm Just trying to figure out how to balance my needs versus everyone's expectations of me. I'm meeting with the funeral home director on Thursday to make final arrangements, because obviously I'm the only one that can do this. And hence why my family chose to wait until now to bring me into the loop, so to speak. So if you're so inclined, please say a prayer for the strength to get through this with my sanity intact, and at the very least maintaining my weight. ❤️❤️❤️

    @Chefman77, I'm doing my very best to keep up with my program and get my nutrients in...there is just so little time and everyone needs a piece of me right now. If I can even maintain my current weight through all of this, I'll be happy. No way I'm going back to my former state now...that would be the end of me, I think. This was the worst possible time for everything to come crashing down, but when is it really a good time for this to happen? I thank you so much for your concern ❤️❤️❤️ I'll get through it, it's just not going to be pretty.
  4. Confession time...

    Oopsie!! Hopefully you don’t “accidentally” fall in! God bless you for living in those temperatures! I could never do it
  5. I’m a terrible human being and I love myself.

    Sorry if my post sounded kind of harsh...I’m just so tired of everyone thinking they can put their noses where they don’t belong. I can see if maybe someone in your family was concerned, or even a close friend. But if you are eating healthy, and they see it, that should explain it to them with no questions asked. I know we have no control over what others say. Just frustrating is all.

    Good lord!! That translates to 100+ degrees if I’m correct? No thanks, lol...rather have a foot of snow

    @Cheesehead...a coworker actually asked you if you had an eating disorder?!? Yikes! Sounds like that person needs a good b***h slap...
  8. Confession time...

    Oh!! I forgot about baking, @msmarymac... I would do that too...and worse yet, eat an entire batch of raw cookie dough!
  9. Confession time...

    Amen, sister!! @Kio, I’ve binged today compared to you, lol! I’ve had 3oz chicken and a cheese stick for breakfast and the same for lunch, lol. I’m having 4oz of chicken stir fry for dinner, and a yogurt with chia seeds for my snack. Last year at this time it probably would have been pancakes for breakfast, grilled cheese (probably 2) and soup for lunch and pizza or Chinese delivery for dinner...with ice cream for desert. That was a snow day menu for me @CheeringCJ, with one meal having more calories than I have in an entire day now!
  10. I’m a terrible human being and I love myself.

    Garbage person?!? Umm...NO!! I sometimes wish I could respond that way when certain people ask. Now that my mother and sister are back in the picture, they have been questioning me like crazy. As I’ve said before, and I’ll say again, I’m not telling them. I’m falling back on my diverticulitis episode over the summer, and the fact that it seems like I’ve finally gotten my thyroid meds at the right dose. And I truly believe that both of those things have sped up my weight loss to some degree. Other than that, I’ve told them that I’m seeing a NUT (true) and that I’m getting regular labs done (also true). I’ve told them I’ve dropped the carbs and am eating mainly protein and dairy. All true. If someone in your particular situation had asked me though, I’d have no problem responding like you did...lol! There are just certain people that I don’t want to know, simply because I don’t need the negativity in my life right now. I do think I could definitely have a heart to heart conversation with someone that I think I might be able to help. I don’t know what my hang up is with my mother and sister...and certain friends though. Just can’t get past it. You already know I think you’re awesome, and I would have loved to be a fly on the wall that day to see her reaction!!
  11. Confession time...

    Apparently we are expecting 8-12” starting around 5am tomorrow...grrr...lol. Unless that has changed since last night, that is. @Kio, you certainly DID earn that Netflix/video game binge day!
  12. Confession time...

    How much snow did you get?!?
  13. I finally made it to onederland!!!!!

    Thank you, thank you @NerdyLady!! ❤️
  14. Confession time...

    I hope you’re enjoying your Netflix/video game marathon day!
  15. Going to see dad tomorrow

    I’m thinking the soufflés would be best as a maintenance food for me, but sound very yummy I think I’d like the meringues made with Splenda...now, lol. I used to absolutely hate Splenda/artificial sweeteners, but I’ve been forced to get used to them since WLS, and now they don’t taste too bad. I don’t eat a lot of it, but it’s in my yogurt and Powerade zero. No poisonously caloric garbage for me!! The temptation really hasn’t been there yet, and I’m hoping it stays away You’re so right about the one m&m at a time thing. We have to be ever vigilant, but I don’t think a taste of something yummy on holidays will really cause regain.
