Shooting Stars %Fall Challenge

Part of the Fall 5% Challenge - hoping this will help me get back on track..seems the roller coaster ride has been upwards for some time now...well at least since February of this year. I'm looking forward to finding my way back.

I have a Puerto Rico work sponsored trip scheduled for December and hope to fit in some of my clothes.

I might try the water thing, though I wonder why it wouldn't have been an issue before. I'm reluctant because of the peeing thing. I hate feeling tied to anything- certain foods and having to be close to a bathroom, for example- in the service of the whole shebang. I'm practicing trying to be less concerned with the issue. We'll see what kind of effect that has. I have a little leeway to experiment as I realize I don't really have to lose any weight, so if I have gained a few pounds, it's not a catastrophe. I really have the suspicion that it may end up that it's easier to eat less and be content with it.

My doctor didn't have any idea what was wrong with me. She offered a referral to a dieticisn but said she didn't think it would help. I hate people unnecessarily using their health services so I forewent the offer. I can always change my mind later.

Almost every time I eat, I'm eating when I'm not hungry, but I am not eating even as much as I used to for years on No S. This is what is annoying. It FEELS much like it did when I was permasnacking and even bingeing. Even a rather regular meal can FEEL like a binge later. So I don't get the good vibes as much anymore unless I eat very little. Even then, there is rarely the pleasure of being really hungry and then satsifying that with a moderate meal.

I'm experimenting with digestive enzymes. I certainly felt more gases moving through! We'll see if that is a harbinger of good news as the days go by.

It's never too late to learn to be kind to yourself. emoticon

I see your ticker tape is devoted to No S. Is it an old one, or are you recommitting?

I'm experimenting with eating a rather early dinner for at least yesterday and today. I had a class last night, ate early, and actually got hungry about an hour after I woke up. Haven't been hungry in the morning for months! Still dealing with my lack of hunger but not lack of eating. I'm going to ask my doctor for a referral to a dietician tomorrow. Who knows? Maybe I will actually find a medical reason to limit certain foods.

Remember your EXCELLENT reasons for wanting to eat moderately, which might mean at times, quite lightly. Fill up on the rest of your rich life!

Never give up! Do what you can with this challenge. As you get healthy habit streaks established, the changes with start to happen. It's not easy. I know because it's taken me almost 4 years to get to where I am. There are things that still cause me to stuggle. When that happens, I know I must get back on track and not give up.
