    Inadvertant IF

    Whoops.

    I was going to eat dinner by 6:00, but here it is, 7:30, and I'm just starting to get hungry. I'm going to bed in an hour and a half,,so no way am I eating something now. I'll just have to tough it out. Maybe a little broth?

    Before I discovered low-carb eating several years ago, I had no idea how obsessed I was with food. To me, it was completely natural to always be thinking of what I was eating, would be eating, could eat. I would sneak food, treat myself with food, make food treats for others. I thought about food, planned food, loved food.

    But it wasn't a true love. I was a crazy food stalker, and I didn't even know it.

    The first time I realized I had FORGOTTEN to eat, it blew my mind. (Let us not discuss at this time how I could still slip back into bad eating habits after being shown the light.) I didn't even understand how it could happen. Gradually I learned how sugars affected me. Still learning, there's always more to learn. (Once again, I recommend 'Fathead', 'Science for Smart People', and 'Big Fat Fiasco'.)

    Now, I am finally to the point where I can count on this stunning event. When I realized I had missed dinner time, and that I was hungry, I knew, if I just put it out of my head, the hunger would pass. Because I am longing for food/energy, not just a hit.

    And true love can wait.

    At least until breakfast.

    I love how I don't think constantly about food anymore too. It's so liberating!

    We didn't eat until 7:30 either... and now it's time for the kiddos go get ready for bed... the nights are always so short.

    Enjoy your evening.

    It's as though you were writing about me! So nice to know that I'm not alone...trying, struggling, periodic success - and yet still the weight doesn't move. But determined - stubbornly determined - to get this right! Not in this necessarily for the weight loss (though I sure do need to lose about 50 lbs), but to be healthier, not bloated, not in a fog, and not on a statin.

    Oh, that is so me! Good German girl - must be nice to everyone, don't rock the boat, put all others (even strangers) before yourself. And you're right - being competitive just feels so wrong. I do it - but I swear I pay a price for it!

    Sabine,
    What an amazing journal! Thank you so very much for sharing! I can't tell you how inspirational it has been for me - you (and everyone else posting) has really given me the shot in the arm that I needed today!! I'll poke around to find that subscribe button and keep following. It has really been such a tremendous help to me - and I'm going to try to put some of the suggestions to work...starting with my goals. WIIFMs!

    * high five *

    I like how even when I do get hungry, I'm not a ravenous freak trying to recuperate from big blood sugar swings. I find in general I like to eat about every 4-5 hours depending on how active I've been.

    I'm still amazed that I don't get hungry in between meals, or I don't get all shaky when I'm hungry (it's just a funny feeling in my stomach now). I'm not 'into' IF yet, but am considering it....I know the "old me" would have NEVER even considered it: not eating for half a day, are you serious??? I couldn't even get through 3 hours without needing a snack!

    But hey, no looking back the future is all ours!

    A question, I am wondering why you set a time to stop eating? I don't like to eat within a few hours of going to bed as it tends to disrupt my sleep, but if I am hungry I will eat a little something because a growling stomach disrupts my sleep as well.
