    I think 1000 is a rather arbitrary number, it can't be right for everyone. I think as long as you get your percentages right and keep the calories as low as reasonable, you will see results.

    I agree with this...
    Plus this low number makes some people feel edgy which is not good.
    Do it so you feel comfortable. Even if that means adding a couple of days to the plan and starting at higher calories then edging them down or something if you really think it's important to hit the target.
    No 'diet' stress.

    Plus you are WELL above average female height, and we all know that "average" diet numbers are aimed at ladies about what, 5-6 inches shorter than you?

    Oh Pebbles, I am with you in spirit on the binge eating issue and needing to lose weight. I have actually been tossing around going on metformin for 6 months, because I just can't seem to lose real weight and still play with the same 25-30 lbs all the time.

    I am going to type a lot because we seem to have a lot in common.

    In my opinion, binge eating cannot be solved with food. It is not a food issue, it is a self soothing, and self punishing response to the world. I decided to go back to therapy to help move into a healthier way of dealing with the world. I think HFLC can help me control some parts of binge eating, but that most of all it gives me a place to work on the deeper issues surrounding food and binging.

    As far as your relationship style, it seems that your issues feed each others issues for whatever reason. This is definitely true with my amazing husband, so it may just be you guys need an adjustment to your communication process. I wonder if talking with someone couldn't help you express yourselves to each other better. Communication is hard. I've also realized lately, that while I vent to my gals, my hubs vents to me. This feeds the worry in me, because I take it to heart. So either I have to learn to say, hey, you are freaking me out, call a friend, or to not let it freak me out.

    Let's be honest, this experiment in learning how to control this disorder in our minds is rough, and it is a process. We are like that show Hoarders, a lot of emotions are going to come up.

    I know this is a time when your frustrations at the process and hubs and life will get the best of you. You aren't using food as often to numb yourself. The contrast between extended clean eating and binge eating will be way more pronounced. Facing emotions feels soooooo bad when you are resisting. I plan to look into some meditation to help with all of this.

    I know you can do this. But we have to go through it to get through it.

    You have a ton of support here, but I know binge eating is weird and embarrassing. If you ever need to talk about it, I am willing. I may write you a few messages too.

    So what are you going to eat on your ff? I am developing a plan!

    Kymma, you are such a sage. Even when you are sorting out your own things on your journal, I feel enlightened for having read your posts .

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    I am drinking BPC, having macadamias and one small meal. Not easy or fun, but now that I have a new plan I want to work it.

    You sound better today. It sounds like you are sorting things out. Cleaning and organizing is a great way to avoid food!

    Well, I don't think I'm a textbook binger - but I certainly have used food for comfort. So I guess I can sort of relate. I've eaten 1/2 a pack of oreo's or a full cup of peanut butter before I realize how much I've eaten. Thankfully I haven't done either of those in the past year.

    I agree that the marriage could benefit from a 3rd party to help with the communication and with getting things moving on a path that you are both walking - preferrably hand in hand. There are counselors who work on a sliding scale - depends on income and how much you can afford. Some pastors councel for free or for a small fee - but they aren't always schooled in effective counseling techniques.

    Hubby and I went through 11 months of bi-weekly 1.5 hour sessions to work through our issues that were all based on his lack of fathering skills. Daddy skills he had in truck-loads! Fathering skills were nowhere to be found. Hence my using food for comfort when the house was being run by his daughters. You don't gain 75 pounds in 5 years over nothing!

    I think getting the emotionally troubles worked on will do great things in helping you learn to find comfort or stress relief in something besides food. Something healthier. Just look how far you've come already in those 25 days of clean healthy eating! You're gonna conquer this - we ALL are! We're being pro-active - we're working on our issues - we're helping each other. I've gained SOOO much from all the people on this forum! Its the first thing I do every morning!

    Yesterday, I ate 1250 calories 85% fat. Today I have already mapped out the perfect 1000 calorie 90% fat day. I will Fat Fast at least through Wednesday. I am counting yesterday even though the fat was a little low.

    BS 117 yesterday, 103 today. Still in the prediabetic range.
    Wt 232 -2.2

    EDIT: Holy Cow! I slept 7:30 out of 7:45 in bed. 97% sleep efficiency.
