      Well I am down 1 pound. I still have "carb face" but I feel a little bit better. I got lots of sleep last night and I ate primal yesterday. I still can't believe that 5 days undid 2 months of work. It is so unreal. This reality has hit me hard. There is nothing I can do to change it but just move forward.

        Sorry you had one of those times - we all have them from time to time. I have found that 'just a little' ends up meaning a 'whole bunch'. Either I do without, or I go hogwild Many times the weight that you put on over those 'events' comes off pretty fast as most of it is water that has been retained. Just pick yourself up - as you are doing, and keep on going. I hope you feel better soon!

          Terri I did the same thing! Weds night through Monday I had sugar which is my trigger. I didn't have wheat but I had gluten free pasta and white potatoes. Today I think I did ok. I bet a lot of that weight is water retention. You are back at it now and you should be proud that 5 days didn't become a month!

            You are so RIGHT!! R3bekah I am not the same person I was before. I am changing. It may be slow change but that's okay. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad I'm not the only one who goofs up.

              Thanks Coll! I can usually do just a little and be okay but I think because I was out of my routine and was inundated with so much bad stuff I failed. Oh well.

                I feel 100% better today. I know this is crazy to weight yourself every day but I did and I'm down 5 lbs!!! Thank goodness! I'm hoping more will fall off by the end of the week. I have stayed primal so far and I'm getting much more sleep. I don't look old any more hahaha. Yesterday I had coffee for breakfast, I wasn't hungry. I had chicken and salad for lunch. For dinner I had salmon (so good), green beans, and blueberries. I did have two pieces of extra dark chocolate. I only had coffee for breakfast this morning, wasn't hungry. I'm having the salmon and salad for lunch today. Tonight I think I will fix flounder. I think I'm getting back on track.

                Thanks for the encouragement, I have really needed it!

                Have a great day!!!

                    • Good Morning everyone!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day! I feel so good today. I think it's the fact that I'm back to primal. You know I was thinking this morning about something that has changed. It was not a struggle to go back to primal, it felt normal to me. That has taken me a bit by surprise. For the past year I was in and out of primal. Eating unhealthy was the norm so primal was hard. Then in September I committed to primal and I have done so well overall that now primal feels like the norm. Don't get me wrong for those 5 days i wasn't hating it but I felt so bad. I have switched back to primal so easily with no desire for the things I was gorging on for those 5 days. This is real progress to me!

                      So I have 4 lbs to lose to get back to where I was before the episode. Oh well. My goal is to get to the 170's by the end of the month/year. That would be good. I started this year at 210 so it would be great to be in the 170's. That would be 15% down. I really wanted to be in the "overweight" BMI not "obese" but I would have to hit 169. That's 18 lbs. so no way am I going to do that. Oh well. Goals are something you strive for but are not the end all if you don't make it. You just readjust and move forward. I'm doing just fine.

                      Have a great day!!! Grok on! hahahaha (dancing around the room)

                      • You are sounding so positive Teri! Awesome! Every bit you lose is gain And goals are fun, but we have to be careful not to get too crazy with expecting miracles. It sounds as though you are right on track though and if it takes a few days or weeks longer to get to that goal - who really cares?! Hope you had an awesome day!

                          • Well steady as she goes. Just plugging along. Nothing earth shaking to report. I haven't lost any more. I still have inflammation which I can tell because of my rings. The carb face is gone though, thankfully. I've had a few small blips but I'm doing okay. Onward and downward! haha

                            Have a great day everyone!!!

                            • Well I have to make a confession. I have been bad for the past few days. (hanging my head) Sigh....I have ate so bad for the last few days. I know it is emotional eating. I have a bunch of feelings about this Christmas. This Christmas is a lot is different and I'm doing what I know.....eat. I am trying to figure out what I need to do about these feelings other than stuff them down with bad food. I haven't gained weight....yet but I know where this is headed........... Any advice is appreciated.

                              • If you can take some time just you and the Lord with a piece of paper, pencil and your Bible and ask Him where the issues roots lie. Sometimes writing a letter to Him about how you are feeling and what is troubling you can bring it out like a boil being lanced. It is amazing how faithful He is to lead us into healthier ways of thinking and behaving. I just want to encourage you though - it is a journey and no-one gets it all fixed in one shot that I know of!! Just keep on persevering and leaning on Him and you will see how He shows you the way to go. If I think back to where I was, emotionally, years ago, it is scarey indeed. I still have a LOT to learn and see changes in, but I am a VERY different person now and all the praise goes to Jesus who has stuck by me and has been so patient and loving and kind even when I really don't deserve it. He has good plans for you and working your way through these old habits is part of the freedom we are going to learn. I am in the throes of some of my own habits right now and wrestling with them. But there is always hope in the midst of the struggles, because He is good!!!

                                On a practical note, I find that eating carbs sets off a big desire for more and more and more food. When I keep my carbs low and make sure I get enough fat and veggies with my meat I lose the desire for gorging myself on the bad stuff. Also, find some paleo/primal friendly treats that you really enjoy and make sure you get a little regularly. Keep satisfying snacks around and plan what you are going to eat before you do. I find that when I am out of control, keeping a record of everything I eat, helps me slow down and start to get a grip on my choices again. Keep coming here for encouragement! We love to cheer you on - we all have times of needing to hear advice from others. Many times it isn't even the advice that is necessarily particularly helpful but just that people care and want to see you overcome! You go girl - keep your head up and your eyes on the one from whence comes your help....
