Veg or Flex buddy?
Hi! I follow the Ornish diet, but I don't have heart disease and so I can still eat meat every now and then. It sounds a lot like being a flexitarian. I have lost 40 pounds in the past five months and you can count me among your buddies. I will send you a buddy request! Onward and downward!

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh myself every morning and I am accustomed to fluctuations due to how hydrated I am. I record any new lows. If I just weighed once a week, I might weigh myself on a bad day and not give myself mental credit for the progress I have made that week. That would be disappointing!

Reasons to lose weight (besides health/looks)...
Next summer when I have acheived my target weight, I will once again climb Glenwood Canyon to a beautiful place called, Hanging Lake". It is a "difficult" rated trail, but as I huffed and puffed my way up it this past summer (taking numerous breaks along the way), I was passed by a woman who was blind and a woman who was a breast cancer survivor. These two truly inspirational women and their supporters convinced me that that only person who could change me is me. The only person holding me back is me becuase you can do whatever you put your mind to. Another inpsiration along the trail was the Air Force Academy Hockey team - they were RUNNING the trail for fitness. Wow! I can't wait to climb the trail once again with my teenagers as hanging lake is such a truly beautiful place. It is worth every step of the trail.

husband left me married 9yrs and 4 kids......how can i stay on track while i am do depressed???
I understand your pain, but I want to offer a bit of advice as well. Everyone who has posted is correct! It has been 3 months since my divorce and 11 months since my husband of 15 years left. I have two teenagers and two adult children. You can celebrate the 200 pounds of useless crap that just walked out the door as the first step toward acheiving your weight loss goals. If you are anything like me, his condescending talk and completely unsupportive mannerisms contributed to your weight gain in the first place! You should re-direct your energies, pent up anger, and hurt, and focus on moving forward with your children. They are the true victims in a separation/divorce and you will need to protect and support them by being the best mom you can be. That includes taking care of you and your health. Your children will notice and support you in your efforts to take care of you. They will learn from it and in turn become the best cheerleaders for your success. There is also one motivator that keeps me moving when I don't want to.... the thought that me ex could actually end up with my children if I don't take care of myself and suffer an early demise. Best wishes for a smooth transition to the "single mom" life. Reach out to others in your life for help and support. I guarantee that there are people who have stepped back from a relationship with you because they didn't like your husband, didn't like the way he treated you, etc. And lastly, come here to Fat Secret to find support as well. This is a wonderful support network for weight loss and LIFE.

IT really is a hour by hour deal for me.
Take the hours down to the minutes. Take the minutes down to the present moment. You can only make a decision in the present moment. And we are all moving forward in the present moment together with you.
