1jooj, you are so right on. That is totally E2L. It's good when I do it. I've just been wanting to indulge in an occasional cookie and some pizza like the rest of these naturally thin freaks I live with. I'll do as you say.
Moonshine. You, too. You're right. I'm just having a pity party. I didn't eat any treats today, but I wanted to so badly! I've been having a Mike's hard lemonade or two for the last few days and often end the day with broth which is super high in sodium. That means I retain water the next day. But, I figure that if I'm drinking broth, I'm not eating anything. But, it backfires.
So, you're both right. I'm in denial. I have the tools and I'm not using them. I want to go out and buy that new diet drug, Alli. Used to be rx only, Xenical.
1jooj, I'm sorry to hear about the politics. That's so frustrating!! I've worked with one person in particular like that, and the good news is that most people can see right through it. It doesn't always seem that they do, but in the long run it becomes clear. And in this case it just becomes clear over and over and over. So frustrating!!
SugarAndSun, how exciting about the tri!! Glad to see you back!
Taosmama, see above about the Mike's.
I'm with you! I'm just loving having a cold Mike's! It does level out, though. When my mileage was high I also noticed a gain, but as I got closer to event day, it leveled back off again, while I was still eating an increased amount of food. So, even though I know my increased running will help me feel better about my body, I'm not counting on it for weight loss. Plus, I'm not exercising enough to justify higher calorie foods. It's like a mirage. The calorie deficit doesn't really exist for me. Keep me posted on your progress!
Sending loving and happy thoughts out to all of you. I really appreciate you guys!!!
