    My "Program": doing my version of a 4:3 - 3 day fast diet with real food every day, with a little twist of anti-inflammatory mixed in.

    • I need to drink a lot more too. Maybe tea is the way to go. I need to up my liquid intake due to the iodine therapy anyway.

      I can't wait to weigh on Sunday. I can already hear my mind suggesting..."How about every 2 weeks? or weekly? I wish I wasn't so obsessed with the number. If I could just look at it without reacting to it, I might be able to weigh more often. I have to break the binge cycle first I think.

      • The last time I went without weighing in, I was using the "4Golden Rules" (Paul McKenna-eat when hungry, only what you want, consciously, stop when no longer hungry). I actually reached my lowest weight in years. I was not tracking so I have no idea what I was eating. Unfortunately when I saw the number my brain said..."rats, if I had actually been dieting I would have lost even more" even though that strategy had never worked in the past. And then I proceeded to gain it all back.

        Really want to get back to that whole way of eating/thinking, but obviously, scared.

        • Yeah, I know when I weigh on Sunday, no matter the outcome, my brain will have something to say about bingeing.

          "See there, that's what happens when you binge half the time."
          "Imagine what the number could have been if..."
          "You were lucky..."

          I have to work on mind control. lol

          • I am so hoping Sunday is a positive experience, so that I can keep doing it. Really want to let go of the number. Even now I am thinking I may need to do a 3 day average, in case Sunday is a high day. What if I missed the low number day. ARGHHHH!!!

            • Funny thing, right now, I was happy to put the scale away again. I knew I had let myself fly off the rails...the scale was not a shock. My only regret - I wish I knew the number before I started the 21DSD to see if that could help me.

              I can't wait until the day I can get my head where it needs to be in relation to the scale. I'll continue to work on it.

              Here's another interesting thing. I think I've mentioned that my office "home base" is in TX and I'm in NM (two different time zones). My computer clock (for work) is hooked to the network and stay on TX time (where I'm "officially based"). At certain times -- noon (central -- but 11 am mtn) and 4 (central -- but 3 pm mtn) I start craving food. On my off days, or days away from the home office, I don't have these same cravings. There's something about that clock...

              • funny, my food clock is set more to activities than times. Walking in the door-no matter where I have been, waking up from a nap (which is a weird one cause the sleep should have made me not need food, and I don't like to eat when I first wake up in the morning), needing to vacuum, making dinner (but not making breakfast or lunch), etc.

                • Yesterday went well. The sugar cravings are leaving. But, I'm still eating too much. I know why the scale was in the wrong direction...I started tracking again yesterday... yes, eating way too much. [I know that calories are everything, but 1800-2000 calories a day, no matter what I"m eating, is too much for me!]

                  Anyway, feeling, I don't know, discouraged today? Like getting back to 155 is not going to be possible? I know that it is, but why is it so hard some days?

                  Have a busy day of work planned. Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!

                  • Maybe it is time to put your loss on hold for say a month and focus on feeling good about where you are in your eating habits as well as your exercise and with the progress you have made. I feel like you're stressing about the number and not giving yourself credit for all that you have accomplished, which is amazing and I am so very jealous of!

                    • I know...I'm discouraged today because my pants are too tight. Not looking forward to weighing in. I hope it is because I dried them.

                        • Yes, my ring is spinning too. Funny that you use that as a sign as well.

                          I think all the water weight went to my @ss.

                          • Tight pants, yes, me too. I don't care about the scale that much, but oh the pants. I can't comment on the rings - they are too big as it is.

                              • This week, as you can tell from my journal, I really struggled. Friday was a rough day. Of course, it was the day before TOM, which is typically the roughest day of the month for me (and, if I would actually track I'd be a lot more aware of it).

                                Anyway, Chris had a great comment to back up and focus on health. I kept thinking and thinking and thinking...and wondering why that's so hard.

                                And, it finally danwed on me why I'm so very obsessed with things right now. I'm terrified, not just scared, but flat out terrified that this weight gain of about 7-8 pounds means that I'm on my way back up and that I won't even be able to maintain this weight. When I went from about 170 and up to 240, it happened fast, and I felt very out of control (turns out that I have (had?) PCOS and that was a very large contributing fact as to why nothing seemed to work when trying to control the gain). What if that happens again?

                                I'm not entirely sure what to do to allay that fear, but at least I understand my underlying motivation. I do, however, know there are some "health" issues I need to focus on. I'm going to give it a while with a few goals that are NOT weight-related.
                                -- No Fruit for awhile. A piece every few days turned into a piece every day turned into a few pieces turned into several a day and wanting more, more, more turned into wanting tons of fruit, no veggies, and chocolate, turned into my body being completely out of what, not having hunger cues, hungry all the time, etc. As a result of 21DSD we've been doing, I'm getting this back under control. No fruit - at all - this entire week. I'm staring to feel much better.
                                -- Nuts as a Garnish. Nuts are not a meal. Nuts give me acne. Nuts are a garnish. End of story. Except for one day this week, I did very well with this one!
                                -- At least 50 g Protein Breakfast. I've been trying not to eat breakfast so I'd be more hungry for dinner. But, frankly, I'm a morning person. I'm hungry in the morning. All I do is eat all day if I don't have a big breakfast. So, back to this one.
                                -- No Snacking Between Meals. I've felt like I've been eating too much, so I tried not to eat as much, but really that led to snacking and eating more overall. I do better to eat meals. 3 meals. Once I get the sugar back in control, I know that the hunger will back off and then naturally the calories will get back in line.
