  • While I don't know the inner workings of running a huge forum like this one, I can't help but believe that a fellow member losing her original journal was an accident of some sort. I've read some other things on the site that raised my eyebrows! And they didn't get deleted. Usually before they do something that drastic a warning is given & an explanation. Since none was given to her & she didn't inquire as to the reason is what makes me think it was a glitch. I would've raised all kinds of hell. This whole forum was designed to be a place to "journal" the journey & to seek help from others. I'm sure they had an idea of the things that could be written. We've all put a lot of time & for some of us our souls into these journals...they wouldn't take removing one lightly.

    So I wouldn't worry about you getting deleted.

    • I have to agree about the temptation to fail is often in our 'strong' areas. We think we can manage ok only to find we just blew it big time Sabine, I think you should aim for your initial goal and when you get close you can reassess. I am also with holding judgement on where I should be. I used to be about the same weight as my goal weight (135 lbs) when I was in highschool, I was not super lean though. I think I am more muscular than I was then although I was very active ... hope we get to amaze ourselves with what we really are! I used to think I was large boned and had the same revelation as you - I am medium framed, borderline small!! That astounded me when I found out...

        Yeah, I figure if "Feeling Sexy" didn't get me deleted, then nothing will. I know that they usually put a temporary ban on people after explaining the charge for a first offense. I agree that motherofgods' issue was likely a glitch.

        • Sort of on purpose intermittent fasting

          Here's yesterday:

          Up at 6:00
          Vitamins

          12:30 3 pieces zwiebelkuchen( onions sauteed in
          coconut oil
          sour cream
          eggs and egg yolks, topped with
          bacon and baked
          cheese- portwine, camembert, garlic jack, blue

          Water: 13 glasses

          Bed at 9:30

          I was spending the day with a friend, lunch included. Since I ate so much the day before, I figured no breakfast would be a good idea. It was- I didn't get hungry until the appropriate time to be social with my friend. I brought the food, so it was easy to eat right.

          Then came the sort of on purpose part.

          I had a girl scout meeting in the evening. I was definitely not hungry beforehand. I started feeling peckish during the meeting, but by the time I go home, it was 7:30. Too late to eat in my book, plus, the next day was my sashimi day. If I ate a late dinner, what if it threw me off for consuming my normal amount of sashimi? Horrors!

          So, I decided to skip dinner. By the time I went to bed, I was in full-blown, stomach-growling mode. I was even hungry when I woke up in the middle of the night. Ecks has mentioned that his sleep is fantastic when he goes to bed hungry, but no such luck for me. I even had a peculiar dream about the forums- that someone posted a comment to my journal that they wouldn't recommend me to a newbie, because I was so full of rage. (!) What's that all about? But, I did not get up in the middle of the night to eat. And my stomach feels completely normal this morning, so my sashimi plans can proceed as normal.

          • I think I am more afraid of losing my journal accidentally, than by willful design. The thought that -poof!- a little computer glitch, and it could disappear, freaks me out! I never really trust that the words are there until they are printed out, in the writing I do. Don't know why that hadn't translated to the journal. MDA is so well run, I guess I had no trust issues. But computers, they can be tricky little things.

            I have GOT to go read that 'Feeling Sexy' thread.

            • Warning: You might be highly offended. I maintain that my original intention was to celebrate how good I was feeling about myself, but I admit that I fully participated when it took a different turn. It wasn't until much later that I read the forum rules and saw the one about sexual content. :P

              • Hey there.. I think that is my journal that gave you the idea for keeping track of ideas and suggestions and you reminded me that I eed to add some stuff to my list. It was like my first couple of posts because I was getting so much info from so many members I wanted to store it all!.

                I don't know what I would do if my journal got deleted..

                I remember always thinking I was large boned until a few years ago when a phys ed teacher told me "no your not, stick your elbow up here," and he measured the distance between the two bones at the tip and pronounced me "small boned" in a booming voice *cringe* damn!

                • According to my wrists, I'm big boned... who freaking knows??

                  • thought you guys might have fun with this...

                    http://health.bizcalcs.com/Calculato...ame-Size-Elbow

                    mine is small frame and says I should weigh 120-133!!! My elbow measurement is 2' from one bone to the next.

                    DIRECTIONS: Bend elbow and point up, measure from tip bone to the other bone you can see. 2' or less is small bone, 2'-3' is medium bone, 3' or larger is large boned.

                    • I sure hope you mean inches, and not feet! Otherwise, we've got some seriously strange elbows going on here.

                      • What if you can't see another bone? lol

                          • I mucked around on there a bit too. I just measured the width of the bones at the elbow, which was really quite difficult. Then I measured my wrist. They both told me I had a medium frame and that I should weigh between 118 and 130. Right. I don't buy it. Those "ideal" weights are not really ideal anyway, morbidity rates are lower when your weight is a good 10% higher.

                            At least they allowed me up to 130; the ideal weight calculator put it at 116. But I've seen the tables that take your frame into account, in which case I'm up to 125. I still don't buy it. At 135 I was happy, healthy, trim, and hubby's eyes light up at the thought of seeing me like that again. That's good enough for me. And that puts me in the normal BMI category. Also good enough for me.

                            I still have no idea who decided what ideal was and how they came to that decision.

                            • You know, I remember when I was younger and looked at those ideal weight charts, it always had in small print at the bottom, "height wearing 2" heels." That was always mystifying to me. Pretty sure they don't say that anymore. Why 2" heels? And who gets measured with shoes on anyway?

                              I think I will go over to the ER and see if they have an elbow measurer.

                              • Reading threads as exercise

                                I delved into the "Feeling Sexy' thread yesterday. It's great! Very frank. I saved myself from congealing to my chair by reading a page, getting up to do a chore, reading another page, and so on. That's exercise, right?

                                Here's yesterday:
                                Up at 5:45
                                Vitamins

                                11:45 1 1/2 plates sashimi
                                2 pieces chicken teriyaki
                                1/4C rice
                                seaweed salad
                                1C creme brulee

                                5:15 2 smoked pork chops
                                1 apple
                                almond butter
                                1 square dark chocolate (3gC)

                                Gym- lots of walking, a little lifting, oh, and one mad little sprint (!)

                                Water: 11 glasses

                                Bed at 10:00

                                The dinner was a mistake from the point of view of working out. I felt full, and didn't want to do much more than slow-walking. So I played on the pull-up assist machine, but that was it. It was not a mistake from the point of view that I was starting to feel hungry, and I did not want to have the same experience as the day before. I've learned I can deal with hunger: I'm not afraid of it anymore. But I just didn't feel like going to bed hungry two nights in a row. So, I didn't.

                                Also in the news: it was been 17 days since I broke my fast. What have I noticed since then?

                                I had some eating for pleasure after I broke it, and also, too many squares of chocolate and berries (for me) over the succeeding days. And of course, my binge. That one I feel was related to emotions, but next time I do a fast, I will be aware, and see if the experience repeats. Don't want to send myself into a downward spiral- definitely not worth it.

                                I've stayed at an increased level of water consumption, and seem to be enjoying the water more. Interesting.

                                I have definitely gotten more comfortable with eating only twice, or even ONCE a day. Did it nine times in the past seventeen days. (Four times in the seventeen days before the fast.) Hunger does not scare me as much. This may be because it took so darned long for me to get really hungry on the fast. Don't know if you recall, but it was almost two full days. I think my brain realized those vague interests in food may not really be HUNGER. And my body realized that even if food isn't coming in the goodie hatch, WOW! it just happens to be carrying all this convenient fat for anytime - day or night- consumption.

                                As for cell renewal: I've got no idea. But I feel good. Been sleeping well. An experiment worth repeating, I think. I have my next one planned for mid-May.
