well - I'm still not able to stay off the scale - but it's keeping me sane right now.  I've been in a slump in the running department - I took 4 days off.  I've got my running stuff with me today and plan to run tonight.  Part of my slump has been I've been exhausted - it's a chicken/egg thing.  I haven't been able to sleep well, because I'm not exercising or because I was?  I'm not sure.  Either way...I'm baaaack!

From a food point of view, I've been doing surprisingly well. I haven been only mentally tracking and I haven't stayed away from sugar but I have been under control.  Not even 'relatively' under control - but truly having a good food week.   This Saturday I'm trying to clear up my schedule for the OA meeting - it's never simple, my calander looks like I'm scheduling a full work team of 10 but it's only me. 

There's just SO much to do!  work is slow right so at least there's not a lot of added stress about adding more time in my day for overtime and late schedule - but hopefully that's coming and not the reverse.  There's rumors of reduced hours and part of me is hoping that's the case, more time to get stuff outside of work done, less time sitting idle at work. 

Meanwhile - I haven't been reaching deep inside myself, I've just been rambling along.  That needs to change!!

I've got FIFTY followers now and a obligation to myself to make the changes I know I need to make!  I thank you ALL for being my cyber support - it really does make a difference, more than you know!!

I love reading your posts so keep it up. I wanted to suggest you get the book God, Women, Food by Geneen Roth. I was sceptical but it really has some good points about eating. And there really isn't anything religious about it. I saw it similar to some of the books I had when I went to OA. I didn't find OA helpful but then there weren't many people there and I never got a sponsor. It just wasn't my time.
