  1. I find a lot of solace in this thread. It's comforting to know I am not alone in this mental struggle. I have for sure trash treated pre surgery, and think strongly about it often now. What is it physiologically that makes it so damn important to eat that thing we shouldn't? It's interesting that I have been in therapy for a while now and I really enjoy it but just realized something. I have open talked to my therapist about all other addictions I have suffered, but not once have I braved the food talk. Maybe that's my next bridge to cross.
  2. Shyeah. Right. As if. (In my best Wayne voice) You my dear have 8 inches of height on me and 16 less lbs. But for having the sleeve I'm very happy with my results so far and hoping to hit goal by my 1 year mark
  3. YES! My fashion advice comes free because you ladies constantly lift me up. We're even. The skirt is like @Clickin showed. Grace Karin. Under $20 and they are very well made and #1 reason to buy, it has pockets!
  4. I had a cycling hiatus first because Harvey put all of my parks under water for a month or so. I also ended up with a bout of bronchitis for weeks and every time I tried to cycle or run my chest was on fire. I finally got rid of that and back on the bike this weekend. I've mounted my new bike rack and I'm ready to get going again I posted new pics under the What are you wearing post this morning
  5. GAHHHHHH! All the heart eye emojis. You look amazing. I can't wait to be where you are!
  6. My second Amazon skirt purchase. Also a large with a medium top from target. I may order a third. I'm obsessed.
  7. I bought a large, which I am leaning more towards a medium in standard clothes. The large is snug, but it's also a high waisted skirt so the more I lose, the lower it will sit. My waist is 33".
  8. I feel incredible! I'm going through clothes so fast. I was barely in a 12 and blinked and I'm a size 10. I have been bouncing between 164-167 for a week but I think I'm going to be in the 150's by Thanksgiving. This has been a rollercoaster. I finally feel that I live a mostly "normal" life. I don't feel that I am missing out but I do have to keep myself motivated for work outs. Should be a challenging next few weeks. My daughter turns 4 this weekend, and then our annual trip to the Renaissance Festival.
  9. I've hit a point now that I lose weight once a month. It's the strangest thing. I will have a week where I lose 5-10lbs out of nowhere.
  10. Nope, It's a pretty heavy material with a lot of pleating so it's already pretty floofy. But, you could totally use one.
  11. Amazon! Grace Kirran and they have them in tons of different patterns. I'm going to order another today. I am wearing a large, but this should fit me for a while since it's high-waisted.
  12. Hey ya'll! Long time no talk. Took a picture of my new skirt at the office this morning and it made me realize how far I've come. How everyone is doing great!
  13. Sorry I can't be more help. I have BCBS and they covered only a very small portion. Good luck Mandy!
  14. It's been a strange and hectic last few weeks. Harvey blew threw town to shake things up a bit. We had minimal damage to our home. Some leaks / flooding in the garage, by comparison, nothing. That still left us dealing with insurance and even had FEMA at the house yesterday. We had house guests for a week. I was unable to get to work for a week due to the entire city being under water. My last few weeks have been challenging to get to and from work because some freeways are still closed. All in all it's been weird and I've missed my routine. One tragic loss from Harvey was my scale! At on
  15. It's amazing that you had surgery 5 months ago. You look incredible!

    I'm baaaaaack! Howdy all. I am safe and sound and back at work. Although slightly begrudgingly. It's been a wild last 10 days. My home had some minor damage but nothing in comparison to others. I walked into a friends mothers home last weekend that was up against a river and was stunned to see the kind of damage. A home completely gutted and filled with mud. I wore a rain boots inside their home to haul away sheet rock and salvage remains. Her home is just one of 100's of thousands. I've been trying to do a little in the way of donations and lending hands. But it never feels like enough. I've
  17. I did this a few weeks ago when I noticed that the skin above my bra line was very crepey and when I pinched it, it sort of just stayed. I walked around the whole weekend making everyone look at it while I stomped my feet around and whined. I'm over it now.

    Hi guys! Sorry my routine has been so interrupted this last week. I usually hop on when I'm at work and I haven't been to work in about 10 days. We are fine. We had a small leak and had to pull up some carpet but comparatively we're just fine. Today I will be assisting a friends mom ripping out walls and floors of her home that took on several feet of water. Time to hustle. I could really use the exercise!!

    It's been a heart breaking and stressful time for my city. My neighborhood has been so lucky, but even here just a few streets away people were using air mattresses to put their small children and infant on to float them to safety.

    Hi loves! My family and I have been extremely fortunate. We've remained with power, Internet and all. Our roof sprung a small leak and we got very close to our home and car flooding but the rain slowed and it's since receded. We were able to get to the Kroger by our home that was open for a few hours today and although it was pandemonium, we survived it and restocked on supplies. All schools and most businesses are closed for the entire week. Thank you all so much for the kindness and concern you've shown me.

    Indeed ma'am. Indeed. Oh well, it's not like 34 is anything special.

    Unfortunately Houston is well versed in these types of floods. I'm inland enough that we won't see the wind and storm surge the coast will, but we will see a ton of flooding. My office just officially announced closure today and we are going to hunker down here and ride it out. I'll keep you all posted. Thank you everyone for the well wishes.
