Daily commitment thread 10-26-08

A slow day yesterday, huh? I am hoping that means everyone was just having such a great Saturday that they had no time to post! :)

We have a busy day today. Church this morning, trick or treat from 2p to 4p and then youth group here from 5p to 6:30p. I am a little worried about having all that candy in the house today again, so I am posting it here. I WILL NOT EAT ANY HALLOWEEN CANDY. There, I said it. LOL Actually, I am not terribly worried. When I had candy at the camping trip, there wasn't that much that appealed to me. I just keep reminding myself of that - it wasn't that good.

What is everyone else doing today?

Good morning. It seems good to have a day with not a lot of plans. Have to meet my supplier to get flu shot stuff at noon. I keep waiting for a cop to come up and see what we are doing as she meets us in a drug store parking lot and starts handing out syringes and other supplies. We call it our drug deals.
After I get done there will hit Aldi's. Haven't been there in 2 weeks and that's a long time for me.
I think I'll be able to get to a WW meeting on Wed. I've missed 3 or 4 weeks. This week I should be able to stay OP as my clinics aren't over meal times. I have to plan meals for all week. What will I do. Guess I'll get out the crockpot for those nights that I get home after 5.
I've had a chance to read most of your posts even if I couldn't post. Hope everyone is feeling well and that you have a good week.

Good morning everyone. I had a good OP day yesterday. Went down to see my sister and help her out, she had double foot surgery and needed some help with her boys.

Is anyone getting excited about Christmas?? I'm so ready to start my shopping. I should have been buying here and there, but haven't.

I'm down 2 lbs. this morning it looked like.

Don't know what I'm eating yet today, but will post later.

Have a good one.

good morning Carrie, Patty, Uki, and everyone. I am so glad to post here of my committment to being OP. The words and encouragement we all give each other here have certainly helped more than I can say. I was OP yesterday too, just like Uki said, too busy to post. Made it to the gym yesterday and then to take my 88 yr. old mom out for her first outing since she'd been in skilled nursing starting two months ago.I have been experiencing some odd tummy pains...flu-like symptoms, but no temperature...not sure if it's just stress...bad for an hour or two, then dissappears and came back a few days later....lots going on here with meeting everyone's needs, but trying to balance that with taking care of my own. Haven't been able to eat much...even good OP stuff...sticking to bland stuff and toast, etc., till I know my tummy is better. Hugs everyone....not sure what my weigh-in tomorrow will be, since I've been plateauing for a while, but am reminding myself that that's not the point and that to remain OP by taking care of my health and happiness is what is most important. Hugs to you all...hope you're enjoying this lovely Fall Sunday. maajida

Didn't have time to get on here yesterday to post anything 'cause I was so busy.....WW meeting, football game, Kroger, getting dinner (chicken kabobs) ready to carry to son's house, visiting and holding LILLY, then returning home to fix our dinner. I was just a wee bit tired after that!!

I was sort of upset yesterday because I was up 1.5 pounds, but I could feel I would be, even before I got on the scales. I told you I would have a tough time since I was trying to get that 1/2 pound off! I didn't take time to do my exercising as faithfully last week, though, and I guess my body thought it could have a party or something! LOL! It needed to hang on to what I had eaten and I had allowed points for anything that was out of the ordinary. Oh, well, that's only the second gain since 1/13 and the other was only 1/2 pound. I guess I just like beating myself up over it! LOL! But as Scarlett said, "After all, tomorrow is another day!"

This is my TOMORROW.....I'm OP all the way, for sure!
Hope you are, too!
