I have peanut butter pretzels to share

isn't sushi relatively healthy. I mean white rice isn't the best but it can't be that bad.

I had a California roll and a BC roll (salmon tempura & green onion). It was delicious.


Good for you, Mia!

I can't step on a scale. Either I get too encouraged by my results and think "Oh, I can cheat," which leads to me gaining weight, or I get discouraged and say "Screw this," and gain more weight.
Thanks DG! Yeah...I've cheated a bit too...this weekend I was craving pizza, so I went for it. But I've started running now instead of walking the dog, A) because it is colder out and B) because I need to compensate

Its tough, and I've been doing this on and off since summer. Hang in there! It takes time, but, even being so close to my goal, I feel it was worth the pain.

Nobody should take a crap job, unless they have to, I'd never disagree with that premise. I just feel that if you've agreed to an interview, and nobody put a gun to your head to go on the interview, that you do yourself a disservice if you don't take it seriously, for myriad reasons. I'll shut up now, because I don't want to seem unsupportive of you VP, because you know that I am. Or so I hope.

You know what, VP? thank you. I really needed to hear that. I'm gonna stop applying for these crap jobs. I've worked my ass off to get this degree, and I didn't go through all the blood sweat and tears so I can get another lousy job, I'm in it to reach my dreams!

You totally inspired me today I owe you one.

I've tried Sushi in 2 different states and 2 different countries, and just do not like it. I'm lacking something. Something inside of me is dead, disallowing me from enjoying this. Crap.

I might go to the cafe and get a sandwich, when the lunch crowd thins out. Take it up here and read at my desk, see how many people bother me dispite the presence of food and a book on my fucking desk.

I'll hang my coat up in this bar. There is no peace when you're Jack Beaver.
:yay:

Does this mean I have to carry my whip, and wear stilettos all during this one?

*waits for Reggie to see his Reggie signal*

Hopping into the topic of crap jobs, in the economy I'm currently living in, no job is a crap job. A lot of us are lucky we just have them.

Which is part of the reason I'm back in school.

Last week I had my soc textbook and a salad on my desk and no less than three people came up to talk to me.

I actually lost 50 lbs between summer '05 and late winter '06. Unfortunately, I think it was helped along by the fact that I had diabetes and didn't know it. And after going on insulin, it caused a 25-30 lb weight gain. My doctors told me that often with good blood sugar control unfortunately comes a bit of weight gain. But I've lost 10 lbs of it so far.

You can make a sign that says "Lunchin. Fuck off."

Sushi is the type of food that you either love or hate. There's no in between.

As you know, DG, weight loss for no good reason is one of the symptoms of Diabetes, so that does account for some of your loss. Once you get your blood sugars to where they should be, and get into a nutritional routine, it gets easier to lose weight again...but between that, and the initial loss of weight, you do tend to put some back. Keep up the good work!!!
