I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

First – my apologies.  Christie pointed out that she recommended The Daily Burn instead of the Daily Plate.  I am going to give it a try – from what I already see I like it better than the Daily Plate, so we’ll see.

Secondly, I got a lot of scolding from my friends yesterday about feeling like a failure.  It’s hard not to look at it that way when you have been stalled out for so long, and combined with the latest hormone surge (thank you very much weightloss surgery) I felt like a total and utter, “I’ll never ever be at goal weight” downer.  They pointed out that a loss of nearly 130 pounds is not a failure.

My wonderful friend Boxer also pointed out to me what has gotten me through stalls in the past – increasing protien and fluids.  I have been drinking my fluids, but I’ve not been drinking enough actual water, so I’m upping that starting today.

I will continue to diary my feelings and food so Cindy can look at my logs next week.  It’s painful to write down the crap I put in my mouth when I’m stressed out, and I have  a ton of stress lately, so maybe the accountability will be enough to scare me straight.

At least I’ve already had 58g of protein already today – that’s a start in the right direction.  I’m keeping up my am protein shake and boosting my breakfast protein.  Maybe that will help.  Also, once school is done, the stress will ease up at least for a month and I can focus more on just me.
