Sick didn't win....

it was a tie at the scale!!! the scale stayed the same....which is a small victory since I was having such bad comfort food cravings!!!

however I'm still sick....and at 12:30 I've got to go wait in the line at the drop in clinic to see if they can fix me up with some antibotics or SOMETHING..this is friggin ridiculous....I'm coughing so I hard I actually vomitted!!! (sorry too much info)

anyways things with DH are going really well, hence why I havn't been glued to this thing as much as I would want...however he's appreciating the time we are spending together and the new attentiveness I am portraying :) I am home from work again- waiting for the neocitran to kick in so I can take a nap!!

WW Meeting this week was good- the leader remembered that she forgot all the awards so she re-awarded us all in front of the group- there was one lady that got her 45pd loss as well!! so we were all happy, I have this little group of "older" ladies I hang with at the meetings- as the area I live in has mostly seniors and retirees, there is only 2-3 people under 40 at my meetings...ANYWAYS.... it was fun, they are hilarious and we talked alot about food items that are good for points etc...I was talking with one lady- she is a little one and she is now down 56 pds which is awesome, but now only gets to eat like 25 points a day?!?!?!?! I really want to lose weight however i have NO IDEA how I would manage with only 25 points a day!! I currently get 35...and couldn't possibly imagine life without 10 of them....hopefully my mind will change once I'm acutually down that low- could be awhile so no sense stressing about it

So i hope however is reading this is having a great day...and I'm off to sleepy time....

I'm on 26 points currently. That's where exercise and flex points come in really handy. Congrats on STS! Glad to hear you didn't gain.

PS...I love your little counter. I love Christmas too! Feeling a little overwhelmed this year since we're leaving in 2 weeks for 3 weeks away. But really looking forward to it too.

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
