    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.

    • Wow, sounds like you have made great progress on your digestive issues.

        • Heading into the main stretch. I think I may FINALLY be getting hungry. It is amazing to me that it can take until the FOURTH day to kick in.

          I am planning my food for tomorrow:
          Pineapple and some banana to start my day. I've been thinking about pineapple lately.
          Then a nice lunch of sashimi.
          Afternoon snack of salmon.

          Dinner is still up in the air. We might be having a friend over, in which case it will be chili. Cornbread, sour cream, cheese on the side for the others. I would probably have mine on top of a baked sweet potato.

          Oh, that reminds me, I need to make a new batch of ghee. Note to self.

          Did I mention (aside from this spontaneous fast), I am now doing 4:3 as my practice maintenance? Somewhere after my Palm Springs weekend, I hit 154 enough that I felt I had made it. My schedule is Down Days on MWF, and Up Days on TRSU. I'm going to give it a month, and then evaluate.

          I am NOT weighing!

          I am prepared that there may be a gain. Even a frightening one. But I am concerned that if I saw a little uptick while I was adjusting, I might let it freak me out. I AM paying attention to how my clothes fit. I like those new size 10 and 12s too much to give them up. I am also keeping an eye on my cheek hollows. When I gain weight, it shows up in my face pretty quickly.

          Fun stuff I am doing today, to keep me busy:
          Picking up a book I ordered, 'Cabinet of Earths'
          Buying fabric for a quilt back
          Clipping Chloe's toenails(okay, that's not fun, but it is a challenge, which counts!)
          Re-watching part of season one of The Walking Dead while I knit

          Normal stuff:
          Dishes
          Bottling kombucha
          Transport duties
          Groceries

          • I like the consistency of a 4:3 with the MWF down days, it makes it much easier for me to plan social gatherings and such. Though you have obviously conquered that.

              Just imagine me with a spear and Brunhilde helmet(horns!), standing on the bodies of my enemies!!


              I think what has made social eating easier for me is that I am now completely unhesitant about bringing my own food and eating it. I am always amazed by the threads where people talk about being pressured to eat bad stuff. I guess I hang with a more polite crowd. I have just had a very little of that, and only with one person (my mother-in-law) did I actually give in. I think rules for mother-in-laws are different, though.

              It does give me a heads up, though, that if I am ever together with my own mother (lots of emotional issues there) I will need to be on high alert, brandishing all my weapons, ...er, ... skills.

              • 6:45am one banana. Salem and Chloe each got a bite, too.

                • I don't usually have an issue when I am out, though I tend to just not eat in situations where I can get away with it and no one would notice. In sit downs, I just switch my down day. This weekend though I have sit downs tonight and tomorrow night, though I am pretty sure I get to select my meal (as opposed to banquet style). I am just going to save my calories for the dinner and skip breakfast and lunch both days, then stay on my normal rotation.

                    • Dairy Ingestion - No Foolin'

                      I thoughtlessly ate something with dairy on Friday. Well, let me tell you, I will be thinking about it for a while! Horrible cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. Bad enough that I made Honey come hold my hand for a while.

                      Ugh.

                      And now my system is riled up, so my midriff feels tender and there have been some more pains.

                      Hopefully, my brain will take this as a visceral lesson, and it will be easier for me to avoid dairy in the future. I can barely even THINK of Leyseiffler truffles without feeling sick (very sad, because they are delicious!) because I ate some while I was suffering morning sickness. Inadvertent aversion therapy. That's what I need for dairy now, so that my instincts yell, STOP!

                      But it's not like I chugged down a big glass of milk. I had a slice of almond cake, not stopping to think, hey, what is this frosting made of? Um, yes, what did I THINK it was made of? Fairy dust? I just wasn't thinking. I saw cake, I wanted cake, I ate cake.



                      Must try to engage brain from now on.

                      • so sorry, but wow, nice to be able to pinpoint the issue. What was that frosting made of? I don't usually use much dairy in mine, that is a pretty massive reaction for that little dairy, are you sure that it was dairy?

                        • was it a cream cheese frosting? Almond cake sounds like it would be good with cream cheese frosting.

                          • Sabine - I react the same to milk. If a recipe calls for even a 1/4 cup of milk I know I can't have any at all. After 20 years of knowing I'm lactose intolerant to the MAX I have learned to ask or read before putting anything questionable in my mouth. If its a baked good or has any type of creamy sauce I just say no thank you. I can eat certain cheeses without issue. There are some very low lactose cheeses that don't bother me at all. Milk and cream are off limits unless I take a lactaid pill.

                            You'll get there - just knowing lactose or casein is the issue is the first step. Retraining your brain is the key.
                            1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                            2. Eat to heal
                            3. Move to live
                            4. Embrace today
                            5. Live with intention
                            6. Respect my body
                            7. Cultivate joy
                            8. Find my passion
                            9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                            • Sorry I have been gone so long. Many things happening, some good, some bad.

                              One of Middlest's friends, a young man just graduated from high school, died from a long-standing illness. There was the funeral and attendant activities to deal with. This was mostly for Middlest, but somehow, I have found it hard to get back into my normal routine. I just want a few eeks of normal life, with nothing much happening, but when does that EVER happen?

                              Looking forward to Eldest's graduation in May. That will be a happy time, but definitely a HAPPENING!

                              I am still getting used to maintenance. I am holding off on weighing for another two weeks, but I am a little curious. The pants are still fitting well, though!!

                              • Life gets to a "normal", with 'not much happening' too often when they are all away at college. I prefer it a little bit more active, though without funerals for sure! So sorry for the young man's family and friends.

                                Congrats on pants still fitting. I am pretty sure I am going to do daily weigh ins, for the rest of my life. Luckily, when I do that, the numbers are just informational mostly, I don't attach much emotional weight to them.
