Aly, a massage sounds like an excellent idea over a drinking binge. Good luck with your work.
Congratulations on 60 days meshelly! That's so fantastic.
Lucky people losing weight! It's not happening to me this time round. But I think once the weather warms up I'll be more active outside. I'm also eating like an absolute pig. I honestly can't be bothered resisting anymore cravings so I'll just eat!!
My dance performance yesterday was excellent!! It seems my breakdown the day before helped me to pull myself together for the big event. I was very happy yesterday but exhausted. I was in bed by 7:30!!!
Hope everyone has a lovely day/night. We are moving along nicely. Carry on!

This weekend has been a mixed bag, no doubt -- I'm definitely giving the ole Serenity Prayer a workout -- but on the whole I'm in a good place emotionally, with a lot for which I'm grateful.

Today is four weeks for me -- edited: Today is thirty days for me.

I'm dropping out of the 1/2016 class. I'll rejoin a different class at a later time. You guys are cohesive and I didn't fit in. I'm too personality reclusive to be able to make the right comments. I wish all happiness to you.

If there's one thing the AV is good at it's separating us from the herd JSC. I think we need to be mindful of that.

I'm not doubting that's the way you genuinely feel, but to me, you're as much a member here as anyone else

Nevertheless I will start a new March thread very soon and you'll very welcome to get in on the ground floor there.

Still very welcome to post here as well, of course

I'm comfortable speaking for all when I write that you'll always be welcome here, JSC.

Wish you wouldn't go. I don't even know what a "right comment is." Half the time I just complain about my life around here and you know what? I get endless support no matter what. I hope you stay. You are as much a part of this group as any of us.

Good evening. Nursing my little guy to sleep as I type this on my phone. No nap today so bedtime is coming early (it's not even 7:30!). I love early nights like these.

Had a good day out of the house and did lots of things as a family: arts festival, lunch with a view of the ocean, grocery and thrift store shopping and some frozen yogurt. Managed to fight with DH in the morning, do okay in the afternoon and we just ended the day (as usual) in another stupid argument. We are just not compatible anymore. I won't give up until we get to therapy again but right now we can't afford it. I think I am going to start looking for a job tomorrow so I can work on his days off. It will take our only family day away but honestly they are no fun anymore as all we do is annoy the crap out of each other. I worry about how he will do with the boys two days a week but maybe he will finally understand how hard it is for me on Saturdays when he works. I just hope it doesn't add to his stress level which is already high due to our challenging 4year old.

Damnit. I never thought my life would turn out this way but I take full responsibility. Law of attraction, right?

On top of all of this my AV had been a nightmare lately. Wanted to drink yesterday and got triggered at the restaurant today as well. I asked DH not to drink a beer because I was having a hard time and he said he wouldn't and that he wouldn't "want to be blamed for that fiasco." I wish he could have put it in different words. I don't know, maybe I am being too sensitive.

I wish I had time to respond to all of you like I used to in the mornings but I have been either going to the gym early or reading instead of getting online. Today I actually slept in past 7. Can't ever the last time I did that.

I can't wait for these cravings to go away and for this sadness over my marriage to end. I just want to feel better than this. Sorry to be a Debbie downer. Hope everyone is doing well.

I have been eating tons lately too and especially when I have cravings to drink. I believe it will get better as time progresses (both the cravings and the eating.)

So nice to hear that your dance performance went well! How long have you been dancing and is it usually a large audience? Sounds like a great way to relieve stress and express yourself

Congratulations on 30 days Thumpa!

JSC, I can relate to how you feel, I am more of an introvert and casual conversation doesn’t flow naturally for me. Just jump in when you feel like sharing something, or perhaps want opinions on a certain matter, need reinforcements to get through a craving, or just feel like talking. On days you don’t feel like participating, just jump in with a check in so we all know you’re okay. I hope you stay, you are part of the herd, I guess sometimes it’s also easy to get lost in the herd too.

JulySeaCoast - do stay with us
I don't often have a great deal to post, and sometimes when I've composed something lengthy and wonderful it vanishes when I press "post"
Today I wanted to share my BP reading which I monitor at home; I take several readings over 20 minutes or so to get a "best" result and these are the recent ones:
Day 1: 149/83
Day 25: 134/79
Day 32: 125/75
I'm very happy with that progress.
Best wishes, all - carry on.

And something else that has just occurred to me: that it's been a couple of weeks since I've experienced the sudden feelings of tearfulness and being "down" that I used to be subject to - that's a huge blessing, actually!

I hope you decide to stay, there really isn't any right or wrong post. I have found this group to be fabulous support for me. If you decide to join the February, or soon to be March group I hope you will continue to check in with us to let us know how you are doing!
