“Set Yourself Free” by Ralph Marston"

---"There is no outside force holding you back. You are holding you back and you are blaming it on someone or something else. The way you are able to continue holding yourself back is by maintaining the illusion that you're a victim. Once you realize that illusion, you will naturally and easily move forward. In fact, it is easier to fulfill your best possibilities than it is to avoid them. So let go of the blame and watch the limitations drop away. Certainly there will always be challenges that hold you back. For each challenge provides you with a pathway through which you can move toward fulfillment. It is your very nature to accomplish. Lovingly accept your destiny, and allow that accomplishment to be manifest through you. Set yourself free to follow your purpose. Set yourself free to truly live."

VLCD 9 ( R2 P2 ): 202.9

I am calling this Day 9 even though if I had stayed on protocol it would have been day 13. After the fiasco last Thursday, I came off plan late that evening. So I took a break and stopped injecting. I started up with the injections yesterday (did not weight) and went back strictly on protocol this morning. So... I am considering this day 9.

I want to thank all of you for the supportive comments that you left me. It was tough for me. I took some time to put it into perspective and I walked back into work on Monday confidently with my head up. I am going to chalk it up to looking at the source. I have documented everything and filed it in case I need it for future use. If similar comments are made to me a second time then I would have the basis for a human rights commission complaint.

So back to guzzling water. I forgot to eat lunch today - I seriously was not hungry and actually forgot to eat. This evening I was still not hungry but ate anyways. I am pleased with the Ovidac brand and I am hoping to stay strong and salvage this round and get into the 180s.

Sending good loss or stabilizing vibes to everyone. Thanks again for all the support - you guys are the best and I am so thankful to be part of this community of wonderful strong compassionate women.

p.s. Meli, if you are reading this I have tried to leave a comment for you yesterday and today. I do not know if it is just me, but I cannot post the comment because there is no space to enter the word verification.


  1. Glad that you're feeling better about the whole situation. Still can't believe that! But such is life, I guess. Keep your head up and keep doing what you're doing!

  2. Hang in there! You're sounding SO much better. :)

    Oh with the word verification, I've noticed that on some blogs. Press the tab button and it should take you where you need to enter the word. :)

  3. It is tragic that someone's misplaced judgment triggers emotional blocks that can take us right back to childhood (when those blocks usually started). Google EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and learn how to use acupuncture points and tapping to clear some of these blocks. It has helped me so much. It is something you can do yourself and can help prevent crying when you want to be seen as strong. This brings back bad memories of times when I was adjustly dealt with--and the tears I shed when I didn't want to shed them.

    My prayers are with you. You are on the right track; there was nothing inappropriate about the way you are dressed. The problem is, is that old geezer had his mind in the gutter. It was HIS problem, not yours. If this happens again I would sue their sox off.
