If I've said something stupid in your journal today, I'm sorry, I've had way too much coffee. I'm feeling kinda giddy and my comments tend to run to stupid when I'm in this mood (really - be glad I don't drink!). If I said something stupid any other time, I have no excuse, that's just me.

I keep forgetting how old I am. This should be fairly simple for me, I was born in Jan/70 so most of the year my age ends in the same number as the year - but nooo I spent 32 thinking I was 31 and this year I keep thinking I'm 36!

I have decided that I'm not happy with my current weight. When I quit smoking (the 2nd last time) I gained 25lbs immediately. This was fairly traumatic for me, as I had been the same clothing size since I was 15. I outgrew my entire wardrobe all at once. About 3 years ago I quasi-did WW, and ended up losing 12lbs. Since then I've gained about 6 of those back. I've had it, I'm putting my foot down, and I will be losing 27lbs (yes 10 more than my original weight, but a) I want to get my BMI down, b) it's a weight I always wanted to be and c)I need the challenge). I'm not sure how I'm going to do this yet, but it will involve running and lots of water. I had started smoking again, but the pounds didn't melt away like I expected, so that went out the window. I have discovered that I'm a boredom eater. I sit here studying, stuffing my face with chips or popcorn. Water is my new secret weapon.

I haven't yet been to a Sens game this season, but that changes on Thursday! We've got tickets for dinner and the game with a group of old pals. Yes it is the night before my exam, but I didn't realize that when I agreed to go!

I have freaked myself out so badly with studying this week that I keep thinking today is Wednesday. Yay bonus day!

And with that I'm taking this body buzz and hitting the hay.

I'm ashamed to say I put on 30 lbs. when I quit smoking this time too. I know what I need to do to lose the weight, but I have yet to find any motivation to do so. :(

I'm one of those types that needs someone to give me that motivation, like a weight loss group, or others who join my cause.

Isn't it awful? I can't believe how much of a difference it makes. And I'm in complete denial about my age having anything to do with the gain.

I'm pretty stubborn, and I have a big mouth, so while I don't formally have a support group, I've told everyone, and they've got my back *g*

Congrats on the still weedlessness by the way!

Nothing offensive here. I'm on WW right now. I like points, but I need about 300 lol!

Good! I think there are a couple of people that think I'm a right nutter.

I hear they've changed the points since the last time I tried, with carry-overs of points for the rest of the week. It always killed me trying to stay with those points!

The one I'm on you can't carry over. You get your 20 something a day and if you don't use them, tough. You do get 35 extra to use during the week, and you can earn points for exercise after week 3, which is why I'm holding off working out until I get food for it!

I love it! That was my feeling exactly.

Good luck with the weight loss--your plan to exercise and drink more water is a good one. Are you going to rejoin WW?

As far as WW, I'm hoping not to go back to them, hubby tried a different plan and had great success (+65lbs!) so I'm going to try portion/self control for now with his help.

Awesome--good luck with the different plan. And tell your hubby congrats on his fantastic weight loss (but only AFTER he apologizes for being a butt-head wrt your home computer connection)!!
