    Fail, Fail, Fail How to rail road your own weightloss efforts. And so much for good intentions and taking control. Completely and utterly lost the plot last night. Were only going to have a couple of glasses of wine, but ended up drinking way to much. And then ate rice.......rice for pete's sake!! Got on the scale this morning...... how to you gain back everything you have lost so far. FAll of the bus, big time.

        Unless it is begging for unprimal carbs like white sugar and bread, am I right? Then it can't possibly be right about what it wants.

        Mumdownunder, sanity tends to be in short supply around here. Take the message of the book to heart, make your meals basically primal, but otherwise eat whatever you please. The only thing you can ever do with a diet is fail at it, eventually. So don't diet.
        You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

          Yes. Because we know that shit is bad for us. The longer we are able to resist it, the easier it becomes to avoid it. The liberation of being able to eat just when hungry is incredible for those of us who have binged to the point of feeling sick for many years.

          You are right about it not being a diet.

            Thanx Ayla, realise that there will be many fail moments on this journey, guess it's how I deal with them that really matters.
            And Grumpycakes, thanx for stopping by. Yeah, this can not be a diet, been on to many of those and they never work.

            The biggest reason why I have always failed in the past is cos I'm basically an "all or nothing" type of person. My philosophy has always been to do it right or not to do it at all. Wow, talk about setting oneself up for failure. I have gotten a lot better at accepting that being human means to fail. I'm not perfect, and to expect perfection from myself will lead to failure every time. As I sat here reading my post and seeing your comments I realised that I'm falling in to my old trap AGAIN of beating myself up for being human, making mistakes etc etc etc Have to break this very destructive way of thinking.

            So hear goes. I am worthy, I can do it. I will fail sometimes and that's okay. I will cheat but my world wont collapse around me. I will pick myself up, dust myself off and go on. Ok, now to believe all of that.

                Been an absolutely gorgeous week. Weather has been idyllic, temp hovering round 28 - 30 everyday. Off to the park today, spend some time with good friends and adopted family.
                Had about eight very ripe bananas left, so made banana bread. Had a piece, big mistake. Have not had this bad stomach ache in ages. Has to be the wheat cos I've had sugar but had no adverse reaction. Wheat's from Satan, I'm sure someone posted.
                DH & DD doing so well eating primal. DH down from 98 to 91 in three weeks and daughter down to 56 kg. So jealous, my weight has bounced back to 110 and not budging.
                So trying to figure this out. I'm not sleeping enough and definitely going to bed way to late. fell off the bus big time Thursday re wine. So is it my liver, fatty liver maybe?
                I have read so much maybe to much, feel more confused than ever. Ugh

                  stop reading, LOL it does the head in for sure.
                  Can you track macros for a bit?
                  I hated the thought, but its really helped me the last few weeks. Concentrating on lower carb, moderate protein and higher fat.
                  Check out the eat moar fat thread, there is a guide to work out your needs.
                  But the basis is your goal weight in kg = g of protein per day x 4 (to work out calories). That amount x 2 = fat g x 9 (calories), and the first number divided by 2 for carbs = g x 4 (calories). Then you can add up your calories.
                  Hope this helps. This could be a starting point and you can adjust as you go, depending on what works. But I def suggest trying for a few weeks, and see if the scale budges then.
                  Good luck

                      Thanx Ayla, will do that. I know that I'm just being impatient, it's taken me this long to gain all this weight and somehow I want it to be gone to quickly. Just being silly and of course it doesnt help that I sabotage myself the whole time i.e. banana bread last night Thanx for replying tho, really appreciate your support!

                        I know, I hear ya too, I am the same sometimes
                        The longer I went without the crap, the easier it is to resist it I am not perfect, but I never ever binge anymore, so that is something.
                        Is your goal weight similar to mine? My fitness pal is pretty easy to track on.

                          How great that your husband and daughter are changing to primal with you. It will make everything so much easier. It is frustrating for you that they are already seeing the results you want. But you are in this for the long haul (right) and in the end you will all be winners. You will all be healthier as well as stronger, fitter, slimmer etc.

                          Bananas are great for sweetening lots of primal recipes.

                          I like waffles. Blend 1 banana, 2 eggs, 1T cocoa powder, vanilla essence. Cook in buttered waffle maker and serve with berries and cream.

                          The same mix can be put in a greased mug and microwaved in three 30-second bouts for mudcake.

                          I also use them for cheesecake filling: Cream cheese, banana, berries and optional cocoa powder and blend with gelatine dissolved in a little water.

                          Or throw them in the freezer for homemade icecream. Blend banana, frozen berries and real cream. SErve immediately as soft=freeze or pour into moulds with an iceblock stick for a snack.

                          With treats like these you won't need to be tempted by banana cake.

                          And with all your family going primal you needn't have flour in the pantry at all. Cornflour is gluten free so can be used in a pinch for a little thickening.

                              Thx Annie for the helpful tips and encouragement. Thanx for dropping by Maasa, nice to meet a fellow Aussie mum.

                              Been awhile since updating my journal. Not been a good week, but not the end of the world. Stayed off grains and sugar, that's the most important thing. Will be be much better once the kids are back at school, roll on the 4th. Love my kids, but boy they are hard work. Need my routine etc etc.

                              Australia day is going to be a hot one here in Perth today. Everyone's already in the party mood. Beach packed and shark patrol coming over every couple of minutes. Lets hope its a safe and happy day. So to all the Aussies, enjoy your Australia day celebrations, keep safe and chat again soon.
