I usually indifferent to Anonymous, but I'm positively thrilled at their rampage over the past few days. Here's hoping they go after Fox next.

I don't know my blood type either, I used to but have forgotten it. I always tell myself I'm going to ask my doc but never do.




I hate being sick, I just want to feel better already.

A+ over here. I only know because I've donated blood.

Wild_sasparilla, you reminded me that recently a FB friend posted that the kids she works with (age 12) don't know how to read a clock. Worse, they don't know how many minutes are in an hour. This means that if you said it was a quarter past an hour, they'd have no clue what that meant.
I think I'd do well to avoid sugar, but it's just so much trouble. Such a life change.

The best I think I can do is avoid candy and sweets other than chocolate milk in my coffee and my daily ration of hazelnut chocolate.

When I eat some sugar, I want more sugar, and it just goes on until I'm sick.

This is all because I'm compulsive. It's entirely my own fault.

Ooo, that sounds like a book title...Delicious Drug

But, no more. And now the weight is just falling off. My poochy belly is gone, too. In fact, that's where most of the recent weight loss has come from. My stomach is flatter than it's ever been in my adult life. I'm about ready to move down to a size 6 in jeans.

I don't know if weight is an issue for you, ninja. Regardless, if *I* can tame the sugar beast within...ANYONE can. ANYONE. I kicked cigarettes, too, and I can honestly say that sugar is more difficult.

And now it's time for a moment of seething rage:

What, like they haven't already taken over most of the southern states already? You obviously don't live down here where Mexican-Americans are EVERYWHERE. In fact, unless you speak Spanish it's hard to find a job anymore. I'm not knocking Mexico, nor the Spanish speaking people, but honestly I wish more of them would at least TRY to learn English.
¡¿QUÉ?! ¿Tú me estás queriendo decir que te molesta que en los estados que pertenecieron a México —antes de que los europeos mataran y robaran a los verdaderos dueños— se hable español? Pobrecita. DEAL WITH IT and GTFOOHWTBS!
^^^ that made me giggle at my desk, I agree w/you though.

Seriously. The Mexicans are taking over? Umm, the land that actually belonged to them before those white people decided they wanted it for themselves?
Plus I love how she says Mexican-Americans. Who being American have every right to be in this here country. But then we all know brown people aren't real Americans.

Honeycurls, what was your method? Did you change your diet entirely, or make small changes that added up over time?

I feel bad that you've had the same experiences as I have, but in a way, it's good to know that someone else has stuffed herself with sugar as completely as I have.

As far as weight, I'm kind of nutty about it. I always think I'm fat, and am not able to accept it very well. In reality, I'm about a size 6-8, but solid. I could stand to lose a few pounds, but even more, I want to get off the compulsion rollercoaster.

Is this possible to do in a moderate way, or is it all or nothing?

TIA
Warning: Long post!

I made a drastic, sudden change. Your success depends upon your motivation, really. I couldn't do it until I was motivated enough. My motivation came from a couple of sources. One was that diabetes runs heavily on both sides of my family. The other was that despite my nearly 2-yr-long dedication to my daily workout regimen--consisting of both cardio and weights--not only had I not reached my weight and fitness goals, but I had been on a plateau for over a year and was now beginning to gain weight again. After a 30-lb weight loss in 2010, I was NOT going back from whence I came! With all of the other stresses presented to me in 2011, I did not want weight and the resultant depression to be factors as well.

So, I have a friend whose wife is a psychiatrist and weight-loss specialist in Cleveland--you may have heard of her--Sara Stein. After he described to me how he and she each lost over 100 lbs by changing their diets and lifestyle (only slightly) but not by "dieting," per se, I decided to give her a listen. She recommended the book that I've mentioned here before: Wheat Belly. I bought it on Kindle and began to read. We immediately changed our diets to exclude all sources of gluten, wheat, and most carbs--especially simple carbs. Again, having been a hardcore carb junkie for my entire life, I didn't know if I could do it. I had failed at Atkins before--miserably. But, the book outlined acceptable foods, and since we had already been eating far healthier than ever before, it really wasn't much more of a stretch, other than cutting out the frequent sugar binges and my beloved breads and large helpings of rice and "100% whole wheat" pasta.

That said, I still indulge my sweet tooth. I make or buy gluten-free cookies and other sweets--when I make something, I use Splenda and/or Truvia. We eat a mixture of sugar-free, lite, and original Cool Whip as a dessert all on its own. Ya, it's weird, but, I do what I gotta do. It works. My hubs freezes his and eats a spoonful or two like ice cream, and I just eat mine thawed--love it. Mixing together the sugar free, lite, and original cuts the fat and, more importantly, the sugar content, while still providing an indulgence of the sweet tooth so I don't feel deprived.

Like you, I just get tired of giving in to compulsive behaviors, so I guess that was motivating factor #3.

Good luck to you, whatever you decide. Let me know how I can help!

Also, it was supposed to take 1.5 hours to write the essay I've been doing, it's taken over 4. So either I've gone into too much detail or waffled.

According to the government, a family is classed as homeless if children have to share a room. I'm sure the real homeless on the streets love that definition.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

. My daughter broke it off with her fiancée. They have been together quite some time. She has seemed a bit unhappy lately. He is a nice kid bit I have had some doubts about his work ethic and that seemed to be rubbing off on my daughter. Not in a good way. But I am still sad it did not work out. He is a decent guy just not a real motivated person. They are still living together because right now neither of them can afford to get a new apt before the lease expires on this one. That is difficult but I get that too.

That can't be right about the definition of homeless!

At least it sounds like they're dealing with it amicably?

I think I'll be rereading this several more times.

Very interesting.

Thank you.
Awe xcptnl, so sorry to hear that. As Saria said, it really does sound like it's for the best. It takes a lot of strength to break off a relationship that is so far progressed, so good for her.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I shared a room with my sister until my early 20's. We certainly had a roof over our heads. I don't get where localities get this from.
