I am

OK, so the trip went alright. I ended up diverting a bit from protocol for a couple of meals and getting chinese at the airport before we departed for home. No soda. Lots of water. No bread. Overall OK. I got home and this morning I weighed 168.2 and was OK with that. THEN, my sister and I went shopping tonight and I ended up caving and getting Wendy's. Not half-healthy Wendy's mind you - a FRIED chicken sandwich with french fries and a Pepsi. AAAAAARRRGH! I shudder to think what the scale will say in the morning... But I brought it on myself. I accept it, and I won't beat myself up over it. Tomorrow is another day and I am BACK on-protocol.

I did eat a semi-normal lunch .. minus a veggie. I had lemon juice-sauteed chicken with Mrs. Dash, half of a small apple and one of our homemade grissini. (DELICIOUS btw - if you eat grissini, check out the recipe in my previous post. Awesome.) So that didn't help the hunger factor tonight, not eating a veg and skimping on the fruit.

Eddie has been a very good boy, and it shows in his loss. GO, EDDIE!! I am SO proud of him. THANK YOU for all of the great comments on our pics! In case anyone noticed, we changed our 'Goal' weights to show what our goals are for JUST THIS ROUND. 150 lb. for me and 210 lb. for Eddie.

G'night for now!

What day do you plan on ending round one of phase II?

Welcome back Amie! I sure did miss you!

Sorry to hear about the deviations, but good to hear your back on track.

No wonder Dr S wants us on this for a min of 21 days - it takes that long for us to develop good habits. Onward and upward my friend!

Someone wrote on the forum once that it took a slip up for her to recognize how much it really cost her to deviate. You're still starting out. Be glad that it happened early, and now you'll have this feeling to remember the next time you feel like diverting.

You're still doing great. You ARE smart for even doing this protocol in the first place! And you're smart for recognizing WHY you were tempted. Onward and DOWNWARD :)

OK -- I say, as long as you cheated, I hope you really enjoyed it and relished it! Seriously. Hopefully it will be a minor bump in the road; if it causes a gain, well, it will be more incentive to stay on track in the future.

This is all as much about losing weight as it is about learning about ourselves -- our eating cues, stress/emotional eating, etc.... Forgiveness is part of that. You're doing great!
