  • 157.6. Yes, that's up. 2 lbs from my low. I've been eating a ton of food. All healthy, primal food (well, except for last night), but too much. I ran out of veggies and haven't been to the store (plus, I'm on the road for the next 8 days). I now know how much I need my veggies. I'm mad at myself for letting this happen - I needed to eat clean before my trip. Sigh.

    Workout with the trainer today. I should be nice and sore for my trip.

    Going to Goodwill shortly to see if I find anything for my interview for the lobbyist job. Circ de Soleil is in town and we are going to see that tomorrow before I leave. I'm excited.

    • drives me crazy when I let myself run out of something, it totally throws me off balance. Last week I let myself run out of my lunch soup. Which required that I make bone broth first. 4 days later I finally had soup. I of course used that as an excuse to myself and the scale showed the damage.

      good luck with your goodwill trip.

            • I'm back. It was a grueling 8 straight days of travel. The work park exhausted me. Not enough sleep, only okay eat. Then, I went on vacation. Caught up on sleep, but let's just say the eats were only okay. I do have to say this - beans are NOT my friend. My stomach let me know that loud and clear yesterday!

              I'm trying to get back into my usual eating routine. The scale was rather unhappy with me today. I did get a most awesome workout in last night with our trainer (it was also fun). Too much salt yesterday in my corned beef and cabbage.

              Lots of other stuff to report, but am running late. Will try to catch up with everyone later.

                    • I am struggling. My trip did a real number on me. The scale is very unhappy. I'm now back in the 160s. This has shaken me, a lot. I knew I was going to gain some weight. 8 days of travel, no sleep, no cooking my own food. But, I gained almost 10 pounds. That 10 pounds took me 2 months to lose. Here's the thing - it wasn't like I was indulging. There was no alcohol. There was no chocolate. There were too many almonds. Too much fruit. A few potatoes. One day of beans. And, while I have taken a little off, it's not like it's close to 10 pounds. I'm scared. Does this mean I really don't know how to maintain?

                      To top all that off, I now have terrible cravings and I've started to binge a bit. I know this is a sleep/nutritional deficiency thing. Just don't know how to correct it. The binging is also troubling - it's not like me to not shake it off after a day. Sigh. I will just have to keep eating well. I need to see if DH and mom are willing to skip the fruit and chocolate (which I usually ignore very well) for a week or two until I "reset" my body.

                      Today, will get my corned beef in the crockpot. Yum. We're also working out with the trainer, which I hope will be fun. I may need a nap. DH and the dogs are all snoring - all of our allergies are beyond crazy with this really early nice weather.

                      • Recent studies show that it takes a year (pretty sure this time is right) for the body to stop needing to be dieting in order to maintain a significant weight loss. In other words you don't go on "maintenance" until you have been at your goal for a very long time.

                        That said, I feel certain that a good deal of that gain is water. Really do you believe that you ate in excess of 3500 calories every single day? So unlikely. Sleep is the other culprit, lack of will mess you up.

                        So be good to yourself, nap if you feel the need!!!! Drink, drink and then drink some more. Doesn't have to be water. Do you drink tea? green tea is an excellent choice. See what happens is you concentrate on sleep and fluids intake.

                        Also, I would suggest the Binaural Beats (do a youtube search) as a meditation for your nap, they are very calming. Stress is the other thing that effects your urge to eat.

                        Good luck

                        • Thanks, Chris. You are a voice of reason in the sea of my tumultuous emotions. I do not think I gained 10 pounds of fat - my clothing still fits and the measurements are still okay. I know I need sleep and to keep pumping my body full of nutritious foods. This too shall pass!

                          • my first thought was water too. Just get back to your regular routine and you should get back to your norm. Try not to let emotions discourage you. Hang in there chica!

                            • I was going to add the green tea also as wisely suggested above. Add a little lemon wedge in when you heat it to add flavor and bioflavinoids (good for detox). Drink something first anytime you want to eat unplanned. Get out of the house if possible too - stay busy to distract yourself. You know what to do - trust yourself!

                              • Thanks, ladies, for all of your support. It helped a lot. I am out of my "oh, pity me" funk. TOM started today, so that explains a lot of the emotion yesterday.

                                Went to the gym to workout with our trainer. Having a trainer really helps push me. I won't lie - I generally workout because I want a nice looking body. [I also want to lead a healthy, active life. Especially if we have kids. And, I want to hike/snowshoe/etc. without being the one holding us back.] But yesterday, I think it snapped me out of my funk. I didn't want to go. But, when you are paying someone, well, you go. Anyway, he pushes me more than I would myself. I was feeling all sorry for myself. We were almost done with a pretty intense lifting session when he says we are going to do sled work. Only this time - the weights were myself (for DH) and DH (for me). [Here's what a sled looks like: ]Amazon.com: MiR Heavy Duty Weighted Power Speed Training Sled with Shoulder Harness (Holiday Sale - 42% Off): Sports & Outdoors. I pushed DH all the way around the track. While he's skinny, he's not that skinny. Then, I pulled him all the way around the track. Yeah, baby, I might be overweight, but there's some power in these legs! [DH pushed/pulled me all the way around too]
