Spaghetti Strap Dress by Unger for Ann Taylor


Thought I would forget – didn’t you?   Hmmm, not too much to tell other than I’m still working on my mental state.  I have managed to start eating less…I’m just not in dieting mode yet.  I’ve dieted MANY times before and when I’m in the “mode” I’m pretty strict and am usually successful.  Even though I’ve lost 2 lbs this week, I’m still not in the “mode”.  I do fine during the day and then at night I get stressed.  I’m usually working at night and usually stay up late.  All I want to do is eat.  I’ve started chewing gum (sugar-free – thanks Diana) and eating suckers (unfortunately, not sugar-free 😦 ) to try to keep me from eating.  Any suggestions?


Also, I can’t exercise right now – oh no!  I can walk but I can’t go spinning (which is my preferred type of exercise).   I had an ugly cyst removed from my back last week and I can’t sweat for another week or so (not to gross you out or anything).  Soooo, that’s my excuse for not working out. 😉 


Oh, and another thing…why do I have an addiction to bagels?  Most of you know I get my Tim Horton’s bagel every morning (or most mornings).  I can’t seem to stop.  It’s like I have to have one or I can’t function.  It’s all in my head!  Ugggh! 


Thanks for your comments last week…I’ve thought about many of them this week.  Heather – I really need to invest in the journal thing.  Kathy – I’m all about 1/2 point kisses!  Jennifer – I’ve read bits and pieces of “The Secret” a couple of years ago….maybe I should dust it off. 


Next week will be better – I’m sure! 

Have a great weekend!
