The weirdest thing happened to me today, rather Tuesday, the car veered just like Denise's did the other day. Mine went to McDonald's though, not for pizza. Okay, I'm lying obviously, "I" drove it there so it's nobody fault but mine. I could blame it on being out running errands for a few hours and not wanting to come home and make lunch since I also had to start dinner before my nap with my son before I worked..but I won't. Excuses won't help me any, or anybody for that matter. They are just that, excuses, or reasons to justify our behavior-we're only lying to ourselves to make us feel better. Because if we really wanted this, we would do it, we wouldn't make an excuse. I could have easily ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and diet coke, but the fries and TWO cheesrburger combo sounded better since I hadn't had it in a long time. But not as good as the McDonald's breakfast that I might get tomorrow that I've been craving for about 3 weeks now :( I feel like there's all these foods that I just need or want to have, but a reasonable portion isn't enough to satisfy me. Maybe I need one weekend or day a month to just eat the food I've been craving and as much of it as I want..McDonald's breakfast, pizza, coke, cake..then it will be out of my system and then I can be on my way. And just look forward to it all again next month if I desire. Is that so bad? It sounds like it, but is it really if it's only one really bad day verses bad days weekly?? So no, I'm not giving up, please don't give up on me either. I need the support of others to help me reach my goal which I will attain and I will be here to help others attain theirs too. It isn't easy to always log in to track your info, but aren't you interested in how your new friends are doing? I am. I worried when I didn't see Denise sign in the other day, I worry that I haven't seen Deb sign in for a long time, Tameika hasn't logged recently, Heidi has been doing good, I haven't heard from Pam in ages, and my sister Kari either-I know she's been busy with school but I'm aware she hasn't been on here either. If you don't have the time/energy for our group, simply let us know this week and we will regroup, maybe in a different way, whatever works best for everyone. I don't want this to be a negative thing but it is a little frustrating when you only read about the same people everyday and it doesn't include over half the group, and you always wonder about the other people-it's not so fun that way. So we better hear from everyone THIS week!

HEY !!!! I'm back. Is anyone out there?????
you warned me about your brownies ... said they don't taste like most brownies ... that was correct ... they were MUCH BETTER than the regular ordinary brownies (and only 3 points!). Thank you for posting your recipe for us. Thank you Amie and Denise and everyone else has been so good about logging/blogging. Believe me I am interested and I am committed to the program. I just 'fell through the cracks' for a short time.
Hey, wonder if this will post???? I couldn't access the 4/5 daily calendar.
Love to all,
