Thanks for your support! Congrats on your awesome quit. I hope to be at a year and a half someday! I don't drive, so that's not a trigger for me, but waiting for buses sure is! I am also switching to tea and having NO booze for at least the first few days because coffee and drinking are very strong associations for me.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, it sure was good for me! I'm so happy I followed through, especially since I was not really feeling up for it after the workday was done. I felt less tired after the jog than prior. Living and learning.
Thanks for the blog comment. Sometimes I think moving home MIGHT be the answer and then I think about it and I read the news and I remember my life at home and I know this isn't the answer not right now. It is hard when you have no family and friends around. We have friends we've made here but it's different. There isn't anyone here I would even think of asking to watch my kids for a weekend so I could have some quiet time with Bryan. I got a job here stocking shelves in the morning at a grocery store. It's a small paycheck but every bit helps. I'll get back out of this funk I think I'm just exhausted. I work 6 days a week at 6 am which means getting up and getting to work around 5:30. I won't disappear but I think I am going to wipe my page and start clean. :)
Sarah, the fat fast is something we have talked about on the low-carb team quite a bit as many people who eat low-carb will eventually try it. Jimmy Moore's blog is overall an excellent resource but this particular blog is from 2006, so a little outdated. There is nothing wrong with the info, though, but now many people advise to not plan a fat fast, but to instead simply not eat when you are not hungry which is quite common on low-carb/high-fat. For instance one may fast starting after dinner until some time during the middle of the day the next day. I have not used a fat fast to break plateaus but heard it may work for people for whom a regular ketogenic diet will at some point result in a long plateau in spite of still having to lose many pounds. You might join the low-carb team to learn more. Everyone there is very helpful.
