  • JackieKessler, you obviously need to do whatever you need to in order to keep out of obsessive behaviors. I know that it is easy for me to slip into obsessive behavior regarding macros and tweaking. For me, the cure was to get off the scale. I now have to focus on how I feel, which is a much better indicator.

    We leave tomorrow, so my visits will be sporadic for a while here after that.

    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.

    • Yesterday wasn't bad. My calories were low by about 200 points. I found it very difficult to all that fat as I just wasn't hungry. I did have the bone broth with the Knorr boullion. Today I feel lethargic as hell. My carbs were a bit high at 38g instead of the 34g. I did step on the scale yesterday and it showed my weight as 216. My scale is about 10 pounds off so I will say my weight is 226. I won't measure myself. I'm not good when it comes to working with measuring tape.

        I read the funniest quote about this on pintrest.. it says when stepping on a scale to SUBTRACT 10 pounds because our boobs and brains should not be held against us. LOL You are 216.

            LOL. I would agree, however, I know that's in my gut. I will say 226 just to be safe.

                • Week 1 done. I consider between now and the end of the year my "on-ramp" period where I get myself back into fat burning mode. I quickly dropped my carb bloat (165 to 163.2) and then another pound (to 162.2). For me, that's fantastic. More important, I'm feeling satisfied. Yesterday, I had portioned myself out lunch and realized 3/4 through that I was full. A lot of times I keep eating, but I STOPPED. This is what I was needing again... I'm also remembering what true hunger feels like. Hooray!

                    • My higher fat day yesterday worked really well. I can't always ditch the wine thou - so I am going to have to work seriously on that lil habit !!!! I also can't believe how filling coconut cream is. I made scrambled eggs with 2 x eggs and 60 mls of coconut cream yesterday morning for breakfast - wow very enjoyable.

                      anyways merry Christmas - santa has been and gone in NZ already. But hes well rested and the reindeer refreshed - and hes on his way to yours !!!!! Have a safe and happy christmas day. x

                      • Santa came early to our house since we leave early in the morning.

                        I love coconut anything, so happy it is not only suggested but recommended with this style of eating!

                            • Yesterday I walked around all day singing Frosty the Snowman! lol Great how some songs of the season just get stuck in your head. At least it was an upbeat tune.

                              Merry Christmas everyone!

                              Yes!! Yes, YES! I love this, and fully agree. When I've eaten a higher fat diet, hunger just starts to regulate itself. It's kind of been happening to me over the past few days as well. Although, it's kind of a bummer when you have it all planned out that you're going to have a ribeye for dinner, but then find at 5:00 pm that you really aren't that hungry for it. Good news is that I get to have my ribeye today for lunch. ha ha

                              • Fatisfied today!! In my stocking were 2 delectable chirradeli (sp) chocolate bars. I have not had an inkling for them. Going to brew some cocoa nibs.
