Thank you Nihold! Nice job wheeler!

I am ok, little bruise on my cheek, slight black eye. I have a sleep disorder, begging dr for a new cpap, even went to urgent care when I started dozing off when I'm driving, fell asleep in my car in the driveway. When the sleep deprivation gets bad I start sleepwalking. I'll even go outside so I make sure to dress decently for sleeping.

These are low bush cranberries, aka lingonberries. Here is a link that shows their off the chart ORAC value, way more than blueberries. They grow on my property. I freeze them and put them in my lemon water all winter long.

Thanks, MommaBear I'm glad you are back with us!!

Today I forgot to take thyroid pill, I was tired and draggy all day. Had what I thought to be a huge binge. I added up my daily carbs 39.5. Not horrible.

The funny part was that I was bingeing on sausage.
I never cooked sausage before smullen got it in my mind. Her good habits are rubbing off on me too.

Well a lot has happened here. First, Nawchem, so sorry to hear you are not sleeping well and your sleep walking has started up. My son used to sleep walk or kick the wall really hard as well as talk in his sleep when he was over tired and stressed. So I have seen this first hand. It is so hard when you are that tired and stressed. I hope that this week you are able to get back to a regular sleeping routine that works for you.
Susan and Wheeler...well done on the weight loss!!! You two are our leaders.LOL

thanks Ms Arielle, once I finish this test I've been studying 2 months for, I will try to find a better dr- their all hyper-focused on my thyroid.

Thanks for the information wheeler, I'd like to try those too, I hadn't heard of them before.

Looking good smuller, wheeler!

I should know better by now but I was craving horribly. Woke up in the middle of the night and ate pb of the spoon. So I'm back up this morning. Oh well, on and forward 😀

I did it, I reset my start and goal weight on the forum!
I am tired and have relied on the 20lbs I have lost already and really needed to have a good "refresher and restart". So I have started at 0 lost and a 20 lb goal. It is time to kick it back into gear!

I am still a bit swollen so am not back to my start weight here though,LOL.
I hope everyone has a great eating on plan day. Tomorrow I plan on being back in "the game", for real.
