Be gentle with yourself, mehq. What would you say to your best friend if she was having trouble getting to the gym under the same circumstances?

Going well guys! Keep it up!

Over the past week I have lost 4 kilo's - unfortunately not in a healthy way. Due to me having no appetite, and stomach pains I have hardly eaten. Also, because I was sick I dropped a fair bit of weight.

Good for you, fortezza! I did reach my goal by NOT eating at the computer today. I have the same goal for tomorrow.

yeah fortezza and tealady!!!! Still eating healthy-low fat, low carb smaller portions. No exercise yet, but I am just now getting back to normal from being sick. Found out today that I have a thyroid problem that has caused some weight gain and will get on meds for that next week. It is good to know that my metabolism didn't come to a screeching halt (which is what I thought!)

tqp, be gentle with yourself as you adjust to your medication. Sometimes it takes time to get it just right. Hope all goes well with you!

I made my goal of not eating at the computer today. Yippee!!! Same goal tomorrow.

Nothing seems to be working so far. Counting calories got too annoying, my brother kept on eating all of the Special K I bought, there are no sports culbs close enough to me, its to cold and icy to go running outside. Today, I;m trying to drink a carb control shake instead of lunch and dinner. Good thing the rest of my family doesn't like them.

Mehg, I often find that I do better at going to the gym when I'm busy. You just have to think about how you will feel after you have gone and try not to focus on the going part.

Dressage, how about turning on music in your bedroom and dancing around? No need to go outside, and no one has to see you!

I have been good this week. Gone 4 times including a capoeira class last night that kicked my butt. Need to go ride the bike or something today to loosen up as I'm supposed to go snowboarding tomorrow.
