Day 1

Had gallbladder out a week ago today, has really been way easier than I expected, pain is minimal, bigger issue is fatigue and also frustration at not being able to run/play tennis/ go to spin class etc. Have been taking super long walks but looking forward to being totally healed. Have been out on disability now for a week too, I officially have the rest of the week off but really dreading the idea of going back on a Monday so not sure if I might see if I can go in Thursday or Friday. On the other hand, why go in when I don't have to? I guess partly just to ease back into it.

Dancing on the inside.

Finished day 3. Working on day 4. Still feeling the effects of the cold. Not sick enough not to eat, but not feeling like having junk. Had the oomph to walk yesterday and probably would have today if I didn't have work at 7. Just can't seem to make myself workout much in the morning. Esp. on 5 hours sleep. And now... don't think it's going to happen.

Isn't it funny that not craving foods is strange. Sounds like healing is happening! That's the power of eating better quality food over time.

Cold is hanging in there, but I went to work. Lolling now. It's not the end of the world by any means, BUT my meditation course is ending tomorrow, and I can't lie; I'm very disappointed with the results. I did have some good experiences along the way but I feel now that they were more a matter of luck. It was pretty expensive, but came very highly recommended. I'm feeling like I anything recommended for me is doomed! How can I stumble on something without expectations?

The good news is it's only about half an hour until dinner time, and I've made it. I feel a bit renewed on that front. Went shopping for lots of veggies and even some beef I will cook myself, though probably not tonight. I pulled out my motivation list and started rereading it this week.

We have been having a heat wave. I'm sure it will break in time to coincide with my cold leaving so I can get in some walking soon.

Hope you are having/ will have a great Friday night. Vow to eat so that you'll feel comfortable when your head hits the pillow.

Day 1

Today was a VERY busy day and I had more for dinner than I should have. I attempted to go after some ice cream but the good Lord foiled my attempts twice.....
The Park office sells ice cream and they had to close early yesterday so I was unable to get anything there. We went to the near by gas station and all they had was ice cream bars and such. I was looking for vanilla ice cream so I just got sad and went home.....
FOILED!

So NO binge yesterday by no assistance of my own! emoticon

Day 2 is starting out slow and steady so far.....

Just to clarify, the No S Diet does not completely prohibit sugar, but limits sweets- sugar in coffee/tea or on cereal okay any day, if you like it- to weekends and two optional extra days a month. I'm the leader on the Spark team, if people have any questions.

Stayed home from work because of my cold. It wasn't terrible but I just decided not to dicker over it. Have gotten some rest. Also BF.

Debbie, it's not a catastrophe, no matter what the inner critic says. If guilt worked, we'd all be eating reasonably all the time!

WOW, I let the world take over yesterday and I will be starting over again this morning.
I went a little nuts last night and stopped at the donut shop on the way home from church. I have no excuse, no reason, or rhyme, I just wanted a donut and donut holes and stopped.

That cost me 909 calories...... 909! ! ! ! ! emoticon

Thank the good Lord that I managed to pour out some exercises with the chair bike and arm bike, emoticon plus the walking emoticon I accomplished at church. That covered about 660 of the stupid calories I consumed during that DUMB blitz in my brain waves..... emoticon

IT'S A NEW DAY! emoticon

Today is our payday so I am headed to the store for weapons to fight with.....

Day 1 emoticon emoticon

Day 1 AGAIN. I need the discipline and focus of this thread. Glad to be back.

I could not button my pants today. I refuse to even consider buying bigger clothes.

My downfall is sugar, so I'll try the no S program, and try to remember not to bring
the goodies home. This is a lifetime struggle.

Hi to all.

Day 5!

I changed my tactics from trying to eat less of things to trying to eat more protein. It's early yet, but I certainly feel more satisfied and it's tricky to binge on protein! Yesterday, bread was calling me, and I made a deal with myself that I could have some for a snack as long as I put protein or healthy fats on it, so I had some avocado and black pepper on it. Delicious! And I was able to stop after a reasonable amount. And I'd actually prefer a bit of avocado toast to a giant plain baguette anyway.

Funny how we just don't believe ourselves sometimes. I know, with every fiber of my being, that restricting makes me binge. I know this. I have lots of data! Yet, I restrict, then wonder why I binge. When I loosen up, like when I'm training for a race. I do so much better eating sanely. I hope I can remember this in the future

Well...

Binged last night. Had gotten to 27 days. That's pretty darn good, considering the place I was in before my streak. So I'm not too downtrodden today. I know what happened. I got too tired and frustrated and managed to binge on "healthier" snacks, not my usual triggers. So I know it can happen even without cookies or doughnuts in the house! emoticon

Day 1 of my new streak starts today!

Always, we do wish you luck, but also know that your future success doesn't depend on making it on the first try. Many of us had to circle the airport a few times before landing!

My head has been spinning with work problems, even after over an hour of rather peaceful meditation. I've got some class videos to watch, then I'll go back to it.

Eating slightly erratic for me. Certainly not bingeing, but not joyous, either. The cold doesn't help. I almost decided to stay home, but didn't. It's that kind of limbo cold: not bad enough to be bedridden, but enough to be tiring. Oh, well. A small thing in this world.

On April 16th I woke up with a sore throat and did all of the things you tried with no luck. It progressed into a sinus infection, bad cough, fever and a nasty cold. I had to cancel a trip I was planning because of it. It was a doozer and I'm finally feeling like my old self again. Today is 10 days later.. I hope you are feeling better!!

OOLALA, I feel horrible about Nepal, the people and those beautiful structures too. Have to make a donation to Unicef or some other organization with people on the ground helping. It's all I can do from here.

I'm doing fine. Was thinking of going out, since it's sunny, but maybe not. Not feeling terrible but maybe it's better not to push it.

On a side note, feeling bad today for the people of Nepal. I visited there in January of 1979. It was such an interesting place. The people were so poor but lucky enough in several central parts of the capital or relatively close by to have these squares with beautiful iconic buildings, some of the several centuries old. Many of them were leveled in yesterday's earthquake. Of course, the human lives lost are of even bigger import, but those places I think played an important symbolic part in the locals' lives, not just tourists'. It's hard to imagine their being replaced.

Lots of good stuff going on here on this thread!

Day 1 complete. Coming down with a cold. Tried Zicam, lemon salt gargle, an herbal concoction since the minute I felt it coming on. No luck. Funny, because we've had very little rain this year and it's all blustery out. Good weather for snuggling up in bed.

On a restricted diet leading up to surgery Monday and I feel like I'm starving, can't tell if it's because I'm physically hungry due to not being able to eat a lot of things that I normally eat or whether it's just my mind rebelling against the restriction. Well whatever. On the bright side it's making me very excited for this all to be over. I'm making a mental list of all the things I'm going to eat after surgery emoticon

Day... 3?

Day 11 - I am trying not to focus on losing the lbs which what leads to the "all or nothing" mentality. But I can't help but be disappointed when the scale doesn't move in the direction I want it to when I feel like I am doing things right.
I am happier when I don't weigh myself everyday. I feel like that sets me up for a binge/overeating. So am trying to just "be" ...not obsess.

Wow, it's been a while since I've been on...so...

Congrats on those 21 day streaks, ladies!!

Bren~ Thanks for the words...always thinking of you!!

We got lots done on the RV yesterday and have till the end of the month to be in there. I have work at the grocery today and errands after work. Hopefully we will get to some things in the RV before we are ready to crash out at the end of the day. Food will be fine...just had a yummy breakfast and lunch is packed.

Day 8...

JOL1KEY2BOL3 - Thank you so much. I agree, keeping overeating and bingeing spearate are important distinctions. I'm trying not to get into that "all or nothing" mentality I've had for years about food. So getting control of binges was my first priority. Not that I think 21 days means it's "under control." I just know that if I continue to string together binge-free days, or at least space out bingeing episodes longer and longer, then I can make peace with myself and with food.

So, it's Day #1 Streak 2 today!

Laila -- You will be so happy that you are binge-free. The weight is important, but your body will reward you in many ways just for not having those huge gorging events. ...and as I have been binge-free for higher and higher percentages of days, I have also had higher percentages of not "overeating" (I distinguish the two in my mind: overeating is not binging). I don't let myself go into that perfection mode -- that has killed me my whole life. (I'm a half-measures girl now! I'm happier and get more accomplished, actually) Congrats on 21 days!!! emoticon emoticon
