    When we go out I've been getting a "to go" box when they drop the plate and remove half the meal right there. Then I try to fill up on water to keep me from wanting to pig out. It takes me about three months to get used to this size portion. The key this time will be to not fall back into my usual habits.

    Pushing for sub 215 lbs. Currently back up to 235lbs.
    Eating at home and at school I've been loading up on veggies and staying away from carbs.

    I find that if I don't at least stay in touch with the news I feel like I'm putting my head in the sand, but I don't do deep immersion by any means. I try to follow news agencies that are as unbiased as possible, using the chart that was floating around a while back.

They seem to be best about putting out clean fact and letting their subscribing agencies spin it after the fact. I have my own political bias, but if I try to stick to objective news I feel more sane. Even reading stories from news sources that I agree with politically drives me nuts if I can see blatant bias in their reporting. Far left propaganda sites make me just as pissy as the far right ones do.

    We have blazing sun today - I'm hoping this lasts through tomorrow night's potential meteor storm.

    Well...I'm hoping the clouds stay away. It would be REALLY weird if the sun stayed out through tomorrow night.

    We have clear skies. It's chilly for here but the sky is really clear.

    Same. I like the idea of Reuters and AP. Is there something good to listen to for the news? Even a news show? I am always at my desk and I want to listen to the news, but I tend to only be able to access biased things. And I need to stop getting most my news from The Daily Show. Just because if it is not humorous I am not hearing about it.

    My kids are actually quite distant from their grandpa these days because when he comes to see them or if they come to see him he leave Fox news on the background and it makes them anxious and annoyed. And one of my kids has some anxious issues anyway. On both sides of the political spectrum. So basically we never go out of town just the two of us because there is no one who can care for our kids without driving them bonkers.

    I love me some moderates. Love love love. The candidate I love, I was showing Levi a bit of an interview I liked, and he had had a long day and was tired... and... he fell asleep!

    YES! I am totally behind the person who is so moderate and soothing he puts my husband to sleep!

    OK, I was not on here to talk politics, but rather to check on Mailman. Glad you are getting days off and things are shrinking and I am always thinking about you! So though I am not on here much, know I care lots! Also, it has been cold, and though my Mim hats are great, they are thin, and I cut all my hair down to my grey. Sort of ceremoniously cutting off this years "show" to give my psyche a break until I need to get back into show mode next year. So my hair is crazy short and the wind cuts through so I have been wearing the Mailman hats!!!

    I really miss you guys. I have been so busy it is quite insane. And I always think, "If I do this I will be caught up."
    But it is basically a viscous cycle.
    Tomorrow is the last time it will be near 50 for awhile and I ordered a storage container that came in and was beat up and smelly so I have to paint at least the inside before it get cold so I can start using it.
    So yeah, my life is a barrel of fun. Haha
