    Don't let the cheats and whatnot get you down. It happened, brush yourself off and get back to healthier eating as you've done and will continue to do.

    Maybe you could make yourself a large batch of some beef (or whatever type of meat) jerky you could bring along on the coaching trips? Might be more satisfying than sunflower seeds.
    And if you're really wanting some pizza that doesn't use ground beef for the base...

    You've come so far! Don't let the old habits get the best of you!

      I continue to flounder a bit here. I have certainly not fallen into old habits, or id be 300 pounds already, but i certainly have not been perfect. I was 260 on friday but had some drinks and appetizers with friends and am probably up a few pounds today.

      at any rate, i decided to come in and post for accounablity sake. i need to get back to 98% paleo/primal and have been struggling to do so. i am commited to living healthy and losing weight. i will not be the yo yo dieter ever again

        I am going to vent a bit here, because i am so upset with my life and myself.

        Each work week i plan my meals well, eat on plan for the most part. however, each friday and saturday i blow up. part of this is my surroundings getting to me. I am a football coach and fridays are varsity games and saturday jv games, which means i am eating four meals in two days away from home and away from a refrigerator or microwave. this means everyone else orders takeout and i am left to my own devices. I have really struggled with this lately, and have been partaking in the pizza and chinese far too often, and then every saturday night i try to unwind with friends, drink and wind up eating mroe horrible stuff.

        I am not making any excuses, i need to adapt and move forward, i am just venting my own frustrations with myself. i have been primal for nearly a year now and lost a total of 80 pounds as of july, but im up around ten since the start of footabll season. This has me feeling like shit physically and mentally, and i truly want to be sure i dont fall back into old habits and gain back this weight. back on the train this week. at this point i want to get back to my low weight which is 254 by the end of football season. I was 261 on friday morning and didnt weigh myself today after my weekend of being a dumbass, but im sure i'm up anywhere from 5-10, but that will likely disappear by the end of the week and ill be around 260 again.

        Cheers

            Hi Miller--
            Hang in there--you have a tough challenge with your job, the stress, and the temptations involved. Keep working at finding alternatives. Someone mentioned jerky as a "snack" to help keep you on track, probably a good idea. Another thing you might do is invest in a "food saver" that sucks out the air from your pre-portioned and cooked meals. Because there's no air, those meals can go unrefrigerated for a short amount of time, and might provide you with heartier snacks to help you resist the temptation. You could set the meals up the weekend before (or when you have time), suck them in individual packets, freeze them, and just take them out the day of the games and let them defrost until you need them. (I do this every week because I have a job that takes me away for 3 days without a kitchen, although I have a microwave).
            Throw together things like cooked bacon, ground beef and some veggies, suck it up in the foodsaver, freeze, and eat it when it's defrosted... At least you get a meal and will be less tempted by pizza...!

              ive been a bit better the last couple weeks, but not good. i am still basically just maintaining weight with four or five good days followed by a bad day etc. i am still not pleased with myself, but at the same time am not going to beat myself up. i know in two weeks when football is over Im goin to be bustin my ass again to get down to 225

                  So. . .

                  Football season has come to a close and other than a bad day yesterday i have been back on the lifestyle and working pretty well. football really kicked my ass and i was 276 or so when the season ended, which is up 22 pounds. i knew a lot of that was just extra crap built up in my body, water etc and by this saturday i was already down to 268, which brings my gain to a more modest 16 pounds.

                  I made a deal with a primal friend to start a whole 30 today, so i wound up indulging in some football food yesterday while enjoying some beers during the games. this will be my last hurrah for a while and im stoked to be back on the train. I have been feeling lathargic, depressed, sleeping poorly and am just super excited to be rolling in a correct direction again so i can feel, look and be healthier.

                  Whole 30 goals:

                  Lose the 15 or so pounds i am up from football
                  No alcohol or grains except on thanksgiving (i am sure some of you are willing to stay true on turkey day but stuffing is happening for me)
                  Once weekly weigh ins - whole 30 usually asks you not to weigh yourself at all but that's not reasonable for me, i am a little ocd about it.
                  Get back to my play, disc golf, more frequenly, walking 15-30 miles a week.
                  No fast food - even when eating on plan i occasionally in a rush get some fast food burgers sans the bun and thats certainly not grass fed beef

                  thats about it. Looking forward to updating here with cheerful stuff again. cheers

                      So football season has been over for a couple weeks and I've been trucking along pretty well again. I was 268 this morning. I'm up 14 pounds total but know I'll be down here in a few more weeks. Cheers

                          So, things havent been great. i was trucking along doing whole 30 and not losing any weight, then fell off a bit for thanksgiving. back on the straight and narrow afterwards but been very disappointed with the scale, ive actually gained another pound.

                          Starting today, I am keeping a much more precise food log. i need to figure out what ive been doing wrong, because it feels like what i was doing previously to lose 80 pounds and now nothing is happening. I really want to get close to 260 by the holidays, up six pounds from my low but that seems unlikely. i was 270 this morning, which is still up 16 pounds from my low, and thats happened gradually over six months. i am disappointed. i am upset, i want to be where i am pleased with progress and feeling good again, and i am certainly not at that point right now.
                          anyway, im not giving in to anything, just a bit frustrated and looking forward to increased weight loss

                            well, i have been avoiding coming on here because things havent changed much, in fact i managed to pack on a few more pounds through the holidays. i am at 277 this morning, this is up 23 from my low weight, but still down 56 pounds. I have been eating on plane again for the last couple weeks save a night out watching football drinking beer and eating fried delicasies.

                            like many people who have gained and lost and gained and lost their whole lives i suppose i am still both discouraged and optimistic, which is an interesting feeling. if i had been here years ago i would have just fallen off and gained 90 pounds, finishing off higher than i started. I AM NOT doing that this time. I am not gaining back another pound because i know how good i was feeling being consistant and good. Unfortuanately i have been on plan for a couiple weeks and havent really lost any weight. think my body is just a bit in flux at the moment. need to get cracking

                            In addition, i developed an anal fissure early in december and that has prevented any and all activity and requires me to up the fiber intake, which has been a hastle.

                            Anyway, heres to a return to the 250s soon

                                So another 45 days or so have passed and not much has happened. i am currently at 280ish but that is a bit misleading as i ate poorly yeasterday. ill be mid 270's by the weekend.
                                I was pretty perfect through most of march and got back into the 260's but a trip to las vegas and easter derailed me a bit again. no fault but my own. just posting to keep tabs on my process.
