    For me it is the first bite. If I can hold that off, I am good. But once I have one, it seems to open a floodgate. So, unless it is absolutely essential (ie. it is a sit down dinner), I just plan not to eat at a party.

    I'm the Queen of "no thank you" when in a public setting. Not so much so when its just me and the offending temptation! That's why I try to keep my house void of things Tomi shouldn't eat! I guess its all an exercise in self-control and determination.

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    BIW Mod 3 Lesson 3 Specific Focus

    -Prepare for the unexpected. Willpower is a systematic approach to difficult situations. Have a contingency plan.

    -Create a SMaC list (Specific, Methodical and Constant) More specific than the Manifesto. A list that guides behavior in good times and bad. *Much like the eating plan with rumble strips that I came up with last week.

    -Small stuff matters. Prepare for the little stuff and you don't have to deal with the big stuff.

    *I had a small bonfire this morning. I took all of that sorted paperwork from last week out to our burn pile and lit it up. I had to keep stirring the pile to make sure everything was destroyed. It felt very cathartic.

    *I am still having a hard time with the food. Even with all the tricks I am learning about will power, something is missing. It dawned on me today that in order to use these great systems I am learning in BIW, one has to actually want to succeed and believe that they can do it. My mind is not cooperating with me on this. If I cannot change the largely subliminal negative self talk, I will not ever succeed in conquering the health issue.

    I realized today that
    1) After 40 years of struggle with food, I believe my situation is largely hopeless.
    2) Somewhere in my psyche is the belief that I do not deserve to succeed in this area.

    I have a simple new mantra. "I can be healthy. I deserve to be healthy."

    this is true with about anything. I have heard for years, if you don't want to lose the weight for YOU alone, it wont happen. Like that, this starts with you having your head in the game. You can do this though. Love the mantra.

    Excellent mantra - how throw those others thoughts away because they are totally false! I hope you don't mind if I interject a little of my personal thoughts regarding faith............. I believe that satan plants thoughts in our heads to deceive us and make us miserable - so when I have I thought that is destructive or damaging in any way I try to remember this simple little mantra -- "Those are not MY thoughts" and I push them aside.

    Now for a bit of levity! I found this in an email and thought of you............ and all the other teachers in MDA-land.

    I hope its not too small - If so I will edit............

    That mantra would do well as an affirmation (repeated thought or phrase used in difficult times). Supposedly, repeating it to yourself helps to enforce the idea behind the words. I've heard people claim that it cures allergies and things like that. The power of positive thinking?

    Tomi, I was raised in a Christian home and consider myself a Christian, albeit liberal in my beliefs. I do believe that what you wrote is true. I like that idea of saying "those aren't my thoughts".

    Food Issues
    I can only conclude that my hormonal problems have gotten worse. I will ask for help at my gyn appt in Aug.

    I am also still under pressure on the Kevin-school issue. As predicted, I am responsible for making the phone calls, writing the letters and getting it done. Bill is now working full time in the evening and sleeping during the day. I don't want to make the change and even if I did, I don't know where to start. I will call a parent advocacy group tomorrow and see what can be done.

    For the binge issues. I have decided to allow any Primal foods in any amount including dairy and AS. I will aim for 40-60 g of carb which us enough to keep me sane but little enough that I might be able lose weight. I will do ADF only during the 2 weeks in the middle of my cycle.
