I've just been copying my journal from HTA to here cus I like the continuity of reading my blog, but I also missed being involved in HTA when I decided to blog instead. I know...I'm such a confused soul... 

First thing's first... My hubby has reached 40.4 lbs lost total for the first time today! He's 215.9 down from 256.3 originally!

I've been looking around the HTA forum today and I'm just blown away by the support that's given there. I really had been away for quite some time! That place has grown exponentially since I last journaled there. There are so many that are willing to help anyone that needs a boost. I was part of another forum before, but it was nothing like this. This really feels like family. I can't help but notice that there are a few people that seem to be more qualified than me, but I guess the admins see something in me... so I'll do my best to use it.

Well, yesterday was pretty good. Work is getting a little better... still very busy, but at least I have my computer back now. I had to have my hard drive wiped because it had a virus. Unfortunately we found out that we never got the right setup discs for the machine so I didn't have any drivers for anything.... that kinda sucks, but I can work on configuring my machine back to the way I like it now. That all cuts down on my stress level & for me stress = hunger = deviations. Somehow I've been able to stay away from the VAT of chocolate candy in my office.... YAAAY!

I think the steak and carmalized onions that I ate last night may have caused me slow down my weight loss today, but I really had a taste for beef yesterday. I probably shouldn't have eaten it for dinner and saved that for lunch today. I'll do that next time.
