They say that death comes in threes. So even though I'm not supersticious, I'm not feeling tooo peachy right now. Yes, two weeks ago to the day my husbands uncle passed away. We are STILL waiting for the body to be released and to hear something from the medical examiners office. Sooooo this morning I was given news that my husbands great uncle was driving home from church and for some reason, swerved off the road, flipping his car. He was killed. His wife is in stable condition, but with multiple broken bones, including a pelvis and at the age of 81, it's not good. I'm tired of my emotions being on a roller coaster.

This last week I actually ate withing my points and I felt that I did reasonably good. I didn't overeat, however I will admit to having eaten more carbs then I probably should have. But still, I managed portions and I ate correctly. SOOOOOO my weight this morning.....up a pound. What's up with that????? I'm disgusted with the result...but I'm actually ok with my week. I don't feel like my week was a waste. I feel good about the week that I had eating wise. I didn't succumb to emotional eating and just gorge myself on food. That is a huge first step.

A lb is nothing....a good poop. No worries, if you feel good about your effort, then press forward to next week.

Sorry about your loss. Nothing worse.

"a good poop" goodness how many times have I relied on that to have a decent weigh-in lol. But it is true. I've noticed sometimes a good week takes a second good week to show up on the scale. Hang in there and sorry about your losses I hope there won't be a 3rd.

Sounds like your family has had a rough time. Sometimes just staying the same during emotional times is victory enough for the next week or so.

Ah, shucks. F.McButterPants beat me to the poop comment!!! That's what I get for delaying my trip to the computer with lunch.

Sorry to hear about the losses in your life lately. Hopefully, the old wives' tale of bad news coming in threes is, in fact, just an old tale.
