    Same here. I've been at this whole weight loss thing for so long it's become my life...

    I totally understand that feeling!! My dh sometimes tells me he just wants to give it a rest and stop thinking about it!! He has had a weight problem since his childhood also and for a man has a very hard tme losing... But today is a new day and my mindset is open to new possibilities and better days ahead

    I know what you mean. I have been over-weight my whole life, or thought I was. (Oh, if I could only go back and shake some sense into my 16-year old self. I was perfect.)
    Don't know how long it will take to adjust to being normal, either, WHEN I get there. No 'ifs' allowed on my pages. But that's a problem for later. After I have figured out 'safe'.

    I laughed at this mental image!! man, you gave him the perfect opportunity to whisk you up & carry you off to bed to have his way with you!!! And he blew it!!! lol It sounded so romantic!!! oh well.

    I agree with no "if's" in my journal either. I know I will eventually get to my goal...or somewhere close...I'll let my body decide. It may just take some time. But I feel like I finally I have the right information to become healthy & at a good weight for me. Of course I'm still reading & learning.

    Well, at least I was hungry.

    Yesterday:

    Up at 6:00
    Vitamins

    1:30 2 rotisserie chicken legs
    3 chocolate coconut oil cups (3gC)
    1/2C glazed pecans (20gC!)

    6:30 cauli-cheese
    lamb stew with lamb, pot roast
    carrot, celery, onion, garlic
    15 blackberries
    1 square dark chocolate

    9:00 dried fruits and nuts(24gC)

    Water: 11 glasses

    Bed at 9:15

    Nuts all over the place. Most unlike me, but I was really wanting them.

    I'll call it a carb-refeed, 'cause I don't know what else to say. It wasn't a 'cheat' exactly but it sort of sprang on me from nowhere.

    I have completely slipped away from my stress management, not even thinking about it(which I guess is good, stress-wise). I'm going to try and do a dry-skin brushing today, (***) and I stopped typing and did my acceptance meditation just then.

    This weekend will be filled with girl scout and child-driving activities. I may be meditating a lot more.

    What is the gC behind your food items?

    Yesterday I was having one of those days where I wanted to snack and snack and snack. only allowed myself to snack on primal foods - mostly protein. Worked out well I think.

    I have to ask... what is dry skin brushing???

    I've been looking into what veggies have tons of vit c - did you know parsley is packed with it? It's got a lot of vit k too.

    The gC stands for grams of carbohydrate. I don't count for veges, but do for extras like nuts and chocolate and higher-sugar fruits. (Berries are 'free' as far as I am concerned, but then, I find it easy to limit myself to a normal portion. Not so some other things.)

    Dry skin brushing is when you use a bristle brush to brush yourself, from the outer ends of your limbs, in towards your heart. It is supposed to help your lymphatic system clear toxins among other things. It is also just feels good. Some people follow it up with alternating bursts of hot and cold water in the shower. I'm not that hard core.

    Interesting about the parsley. Vitamin C really lurks in all kinds of nooks and crannies, doesn't it?

    I felt like maybe I wasn't getting enough at some points because I would want citrus so bad sometimes. Like citrus, not necessarily the sugar. I try to put fresh lemon and lime on a lot of my dishes.
