I would agree

Re: The 25lb Challenge October thread

Okay, let's try this once again! I'm going into panic mode as our trip is less than 2 months away now and I am so not bathing suit ready!!

This weekend was more family upsets, my dad also now as diabetes so his prostate surgery was pushed off as they can't do surgery til his blood sugar is under control so he was pretty upset about that. Then my one brother J that I'm close with (but no one else in my family is) was coming for Thanksgiving dinner. Then the other brother M who's an alcoholic and super manipulative was all of a sudden coming as my dad invited him. When brother J found out he said he wasn't coming. Then my Dad was all upset as he hasn't seen him in a year (I'm the only one in my family who's actually in contact with everyone). So I told brother J and my Dad to come over to my house for supper instead (without brother M) so they can see eachother. Then a couple hours before dinner, found out my brother M chickened out and wasn't coming to Thanksgiving anymore (he hasn't seen the family in 5 years and has major anxiety). So I texted brother J and told him to come for thanksgiving since M wasn't coming anymore. Then J decided it was too much drama and he wasn't coming anyways, so I got mad and said that we've already lost our mom 10 yrs ago, and now our dad has diabetes and prostate cancer, and to just stop being so selfish and come to the damn dinner. So he didn't come to Thanksgiving or to my house for supper and I had to break it to my Dad in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner and it absolutely crushed him. Despite my Dad trying, my brother J has only seen him once for 2 minutes in the past year, and probably only talked to him on the phone for 10, and for 6 months of the year they live in the same town. So it crushed my Dad, and once again I was left trying to smooth everything over for everyone.

Sorry for going so off-track, just needed to vent and get that out. So needless to say the last couple of days I'm completely off track with eating healthy as I was so upset over all this family drama crap. But today's a new day, and I'm determined to just let them all handle their stupid drama from now on, as I can't fix it no matter how hard I try. I just really feel for my Dad as he doesn't deserve this. But, worry about the things you can control, right? So it's my goal today to get back to paleo eating, I know the next couple days will be tough though as it def takes a bit to get used to the lower calorie eating until you don't feel starving all the time. I did it once though, so I can do it again!

And once again, awesome job to you ladies! You guys are the reason that even though I screw up I still come back, as you all are so inspiring!

What a stressful few days Amanda. I hope your brothers smarten up for your dad's sake. Sorry about your dad'd diabetes. My dad was diagnosed last year and had a hard time adjusting.

Good luck with the paleo, I bet you will do great!!

I am down a few ounces today to 155.1 and hopefully without counting my breastfeeding calories, I can start really losing again.
I have always thought about doing ww but im too cheap to pay for it lol. I like the concept though. I even tried looking for the points thing online but no luck.

Oh, and my bday is the 14th. I still have to puck where i want to eat. Dh will watch the kids and my bff is leaving her kids at home with her bf. I think i want some vodka

I paid $15 for the calculator and do it for free at home. The calculator does everything for you. It rocks. I just wanted to try something different than points, but do find points to be simpler.

My parents are keeping the kids and we have a coupon to our favorite restruant. It will be awesome. I will have a sake, I am sure!

I think i will quit sbd. My problem is i like having something structured, that tells me what i can and can't eat. But once i add in fruit on phase 2, ill be where i am now. I just need to make myself eat healthy.
Plus if i buy more fruits, hopefully i can get the kids to eat more of it. Dd especially. Her diet is horrible. She likes grapes but i need to peel them. Thanks to my gma who still peels them for her. Shes 5 she can eat whole grapes. But then again my gma still makes her the same soup shes made since dd was 1. And she even squashes the cooked veggies so they're almost likr a stage 3 food. Yup, just like she did when dd was 1. Grrrrr

I have a son on the ASD and he will not eat much of anything. Trying new or healthy foods is near impossible. Right now all he will eat is pizza and bagel bites. Some times I can get chicken in him. My other son just ate my salmon I was going to have for lunch. I have a hard time telling them no when they want to eat my food. I tell you having a child on the spectrum takes picky to a whole new level. He is a rescricted eater and jags on one food for months. I swear it makes life hard. He will not even eat a sandwich. Every meal is pizza. If I try other things he gags and throws up. We are working on it with his workers and school.

Wow that is hard. Im sorry. Dd is just picky. She started telling me she didnt want to go to sxhool because she didnt want school lunch i think because shes afraid if new things, esp when shes not with me and dh. So i agreed to make her lunch daily. I made her a sandwich on Friday, which she's eaten at mil house before. She said she didnt like it and ended up not eating anything for lunch. Thurs she had chicken and rice but hardly atr chicken becausr it wasnt cut small enough. Idk what to do with her. Shes home this week for fall break so i have some time

I am petrified for kindergarten next year with him. He eats nothing cold, except pizza. My frat boy...LOL! He used to like chicken nuggets but now does not. No veggies, limited fruit. Ugh.
