  2. This last half of the month is going to be busy and exciting! I’m glad you are on the mend. Don’t push yourself too hard give time for rest.

You’ve made him aware of the circumstances, you’ve done what you can do and his response to all this is his own. tossing out the “fat jeans” what an accomplishment and a show of confidence that you won’t need them in January! Seriously it feels good to let those old things go.
  3. This! Such a relief when I realized it’s not my job to make people feel comfortable by eating food I don’t want. I have to circle around back to this often and remind myself, but wow the amount of pressure this takes off of me when making decisions about food!

Being the care giver to an ailing parent takes such an emotional, mental, and physical toll on a person. I’m sure your presence provided a small sense of rest and escape from all of that.
  7. Ah hormones they bring out the devil in me. At least you have an understanding of why you feel this way. As my mom always said, if you know the reasoning you can adjust accordingly. Sending you happy thoughts for next few days.
  8. I nearly squealed like teenage girl when I found this thread. Your food always sound so amazing, and I’m encouraged to know that you also use a recipe from time to time!
  9. 2/3 of the way through, that is awesome. Keep up the good work!
  10. Sounds like you had a great day 1. The chicken meatballs sound delicious!
  11. Welcome aboard the whole 30 quarantine train
  12. In a pinch if I need a quick source of fat to add I just take a spoonful of coconut oil with my meal. Having enough good healthy fat really makes a difference for me in staying full and satisfied until the next meal.
