I was really stressing yesterday. I called the lender and argued back and forth with them. They made threats and I explained back that their scare tactics were not going to work on me. That rep didn't like any of my answers so she finally put a manager on. The manager and I worked out a small deal but its only temporary but the calls should stop for a bit.

I had a super crappy day yesterday. After making that phone call, everything went downhill from there. I decided to take the kitten in to have his stitches removed and when we got in the car, the car wouldn't start. I kept getting in and out of the car to check this and that, that I ended up hitting the side of my head while getting back in the car. I just started crying. I kept trying to call my father but he wouldn't pick up. He finally called me back and came over and gave me a boost. Turns out the battery didn't have any water in it. Well, by that time it was too late to take the kitten in so I'll have to do that today. Then TOM decided to make a visit as well, so let's just say my dinner options were the pits. I just couldn't deal with the stress. I ate some chocolate and peanut butter to soothe me a bit. After my daughter arrived home, her attitude wasn't much help. So here's my menu and oh, I really don't want to be here at work today.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: 12 oz. coffee with 1/2 & 1/2, 2pkts Splenda, 12 oz. black coffee
L: rotisserie chicken breast on a mixed greens salad, 5 grape tomatoes, and a bit of fresh red pepper
D: Fritos, a bowl of Cocoa Puffs cereal and 2 pieces of chocolate w/peanut butter

That's it and let me tell you stress is the pits and then TOM on top of it, let's just say I am not a happy camper today. Hope everyone else has a great day!!

Many, considering you didn't have a gain, and what was working against you, you did great. I am sorry about TOM, I know the last round you didn't have a good time with TOM either.

Have you ever looked into progesterone cream? Here are some hugs for you:

Well Amen to that! I'm with you Mary-I think I need to go outside and yell some profanities as loud as I can! Want me to yell for you too?! Sorry, I'm not in the best spirits today either but hey at least you had a loss (that helps a little)! I appreciate your honesty, just remember it's all "temporarily!" Try not to let the things you can't control, control you-you are doing the best you can and that's all you can do! We're here for ya!

I'm sorry to hear that you had a bad day. You did pretty darn well with just indulging a little for dinner. I know calling the lender was a pain in the butt, but way to go for being proactive about your situation. Things will turn around for you & you'll pull through this patch. Lot and Lots of Hugs to you darlin.

Everything really does seem to hit at once, eh? I'm glad to hear the lender worked with you, but sorry everything else happened as well. Stress never has a good influence on our eating habits.

Keep on keeping on and you'll be back in the 160s in no time!

Oh my. The hitting your head on the car was the final insult added to injury wasn't it??? Poor baby!!! Today has just GOT to be better -- it already is -- you had a half pound loss even with all that? We all have those days -- just be glad it's over! And please come over and hold my hand when I have one!
