Not a great loss last week .. but then on the weekend I did say the bread would hit and yup .. sure enough it did lol.

Well day one of my NO DIET week is now out the window lol .. We treated ourselves to pizza last night .. its the first one I have had in over 6 months .. and I ate HALF of it!! It was a deep dish one .. so extra "bread" .. and it was cheese, chicken, ham, pineapple, spinach and a creme fresh sauce on the base (as I can't eat any tomato) . ... gees just looking at that I see a pile of unnecessary calories ... and then I had 3 pieces of garlic bread (just the small french stick/bagette kind) AND a glass of fizzy ... yep .. when I decided to go off the rails I didn't do it in a half measure did I?? And OMG .. did I pay for it in the early hours of this morning
For the first time in at least 6 months it was a near ambulance calling attack to my system .. just after 1 in the morning I started feeling my temp spiking .. Im more aware now of the set up of an attack and so usually when I grab my pills its early enough to stop the worst of it .. not this time .. nothing worked to stop it building and hunny was so frustrated at not being able to help me ... almost blacked out with the pain a couple of times, but finally I was able to breathe and hunny put me in the recovery position, tucked me in and added extra blankets to stop the shaking from the shock .. I told him to go to bed that I was ok now and he had to get up early for work ... thought that was it (by now it was about 130) .. I started to relax, read a book to calm myself ... and was just drifting off .. it started again!!! Fortunately the second attack was nowhere near as bad and my pills kicked in faster and I didn't have to scream out so hunny slept through it ... BUT .. it was the worst attack I have had since at least August last year and OMG .. definitely a wake up to what my body prefers .. so regardless of the cravings my body may have for those sorts of things .. I will be keeping this in my head to not go near those foods again ... of course my tummy feels like it has been completely twisted and turned inside out .. so not particularly wanting to put anything in it .. but will be having a simple plate of vegetables for dinner tonight and just having fruit today, time to apologise to my body ... interesting the things we learn on this trip .. don't particularly like these sorts of lessons though


UBEE - Im the same as you .. I felt really in control and on target etc since I started again in August .. but these last few weeks have just been feeling like such an effort to get that excitement again So I thought it would be good to just give up on the food focus, enjoy the things I had given up or not really considered for the last while and then come back feeling repleted of those things so that I could focus again ... as you see above that plan wasn't the best lol ... but its all about trial and error .. I haven't been sticking to any particular plan the last few weeks .. one day is fasting eating like I did last year .. then the next day its multi meals .. no consistency .. so that is why I thought I needed the break and then come back next week to stick to a plan .. even if its a week by week thing .. so lets just do it a day at a time and then build up to a week shall we ?

WATCH - Just looking at my results I should be expecting TOM to visit me soon too .. ugh .. I think I timed my diet holiday wrong lol ... nothing unusual Im sure with the way you have been going its not going to be too bad for you

Sunny great loss again!
Wana glad to see you are not giving up either. We can get this under control. It is a challenge not a race. (I gotta remember that!)
Katt I missed class the day you explained your food/health issues. Care to explain again? Hope you are feeling better!

SUNNY - WTG!! Great job this week hun .. you are almost half way!! You must be feeling great

WANNA - So proud of you .. you know you can do it and the lessons have started being learnt, of course you KNOW you are doing it, we always do .. but it doesn't stop us wanting to find a quick fix for the pain we may be feeling, and when we know it works we tend to go straight to it ... anything to stop the pain or hurt or frustration right? I have only just started finding other ways and I have been on this focused journey since August last year .. overall since 2006 lol .. so don't give up .. you have learnt why you do it a lot quicker than I did ... and then it will still take time to work out what you can do to distract you from your instinctive reaction to it. Big hugs to you though you are doing great

UBEE - lol ... well .. the doctors don't know .. nothing unusual for me ... they have never been able to find out what happens to me so I usually just have to get through it and come out the other end happy that whatever just happened to my body is over with. One week they will say its something .. then next time they will give it another name .. apparently Im a difficult patient lol. As you may know I am allergic to Tomatoes & Mushrooms ... it wouldn't be so bad if it was just a rash reaction .. but nope .. its a rip my insides apart, unconscious and shallow breathing hospital experience lol. I thought I was growing out of it but we went to a wedding a few years ago and I ate a salad that had some juice from a tomato on the lettuce, not wanting to be rude I didn't spit it out and instead at 2 in the morning my hunny found me unconscious and barely breathing on the bathroom floor in the hotel we were staying at :/ Not a Happy Valentines day for him .. or me .. but since then my body has been extremely sensitive to a lot more things. Anything too fatty, fizzy I will usually react to .. especially if I have them together. Dairy is now limited too .. and bread/yeast. I used to have these attacks quite often until I started this journey again and it was a case of trial and error as to what I would react to. The way an attack happens is ... I feel my body temp start to rise, but my back chills, breathing gets harder and shallow ... usually if I get in the hot shower or have a pill at this stage it starts to wind down and I can carry on ... unfortunately this time it carried on ... next stage is the insides start twisting. My tummy (usually a soft pouchy jelly lol) becomes very firm and painful to touch. My whole body then starts to shake, flashes of hot and cold, cramps up which causes me to curl into a ball .. then I have a hard time breathing and my heart rate drops to barely findable .... then when its starts to ease I start throwing up. After its over Im a wet rag and feel like I have been hit by a truck. To say its not a fun experience would be an understatement .. but fortunately the last time the ambulance came when I had a bad attack they showed Scoot how to help me through it and when it would be necessary to call them in ... so he did what he needed to do .. which is hard for him because I know it hurts him that he can't do anything to stop the pain ... so for a couple of days after a severe attack its very careful movement, extremely bland food and just taking it easy ... so today I get to try the treadmill again .. but only slow and limited time Other than that .. Im healthy as a horse lol. So the only down side to the doctors not having a clue what it is that is going on (and I have had a battery of tests lol) is that the triggers aren't often the same .. what triggers it one attack doesn't the next and vice versa ... and there is nothing they can do other than make sure I am breathing at the end of it. A severe attack usually lasts about 30 minutes before the pain releases me.. either that or I black out .. smaller ones last only about 5-10 minutes and doesn't hurt as much


So as I said to UBEE .. Im feeling better today .. still sore ... but now that could be due to TOM being an expected visitor in the next week or so lol .. have the treadmill planned .. hunny said no more than 10 minutes and only level 4 (usually I do 30-40 min at level 6-7) .. but Im allowed to do it a couple of times today Getting myself sorted out for some baking tomorrow to take up to the family on Saturday .. very excited to go see them as now my daughter lives up there too with my grandkids so its easier for me to get to see them So Im bake to my Dairy Free baking to go up there and have decided on a Carrot Cake & an Almond & Lemon cake .. Im thinking of making a Foccacia loaf too but I haven't done one of those before and not sure if I want to risk it lol.

Got up early this morning to cook hunny a breakfast .. not something I usually do for him .. its usually either toast or cereal lol ... but I got up and cooked him some chicken bacon (so low in cal and sodium .. 3 slices are like 60 cal!!) (no grease/oil used) with a couple of sunny-side-up eggs and toast .. along with OJ & Coffee ... I just had the OJ, Coffee & my Special K cereal with Yoghurt lol. He enjoyed it and it should keep him going most of the day We are having some fish fillets for dinner with fresh veges

Oh .. before I go ... just a quick calculation for our team results for the last 2 months .. over 230 pounds GONE!!! WELL DONE TEAM

Thank you for the hug UBEE

and Katt... Wow... What you go thru with your attacks...oh I am so sorry that this happens to you at all! I wish I could take that pain and stress away from you (have the doctors tried testing the hormones?)I hope that someday soon.... the medical field figures it out for you and find a solution. I am glad that your DH was given some kind of direction with how he can help you as that gives him a chance to help his love....

and yep.. lessons we learn. I knew them before.. but tried to forget them (turning to food etc)... this time, for some reason, I am just more aware of what/why I do the things I do. It really amazes me how many people are in the same class of knowledge that I am going thru. I always felt alone (50 years) at doing this and I feel like I am not anymore with this site! How lucky I was to find this place over a year ago! HUGS TO YOU ALL!

and the whoosh fairy visited me last night. I lost 2 lbs so back to 232.8. I am looking foward to posting next week and being a credit instead of a deficit on our group totals (MORE than 200 lbs off with us all )

WANNA - Most of the time I don't even think about the attacks until it hits lol ... the biggest problem with the doctors is that they don't have time usually to work it out before the attack is over and its just the after affects that linger. It was the same when I was little .. I would get things the doctors couldn't put an actual name on because it would be bits of multiple things lol .. I must have been a mutt in another life Same sort of thing applies now apparently
Its funny how often we are on this journey that we are surprised that we aren't doing it alone, probably because we feel like we have been on it for so long alone It definitely is a lovely feeling to know our thoughts and feelings aren't just something we feel and others not only feel it but UNDERSTAND the journey .. I think that was always the hardest thing for me ... no-one that is around me has been on such a long journey or one that seems so unattainable So I too feel very honoured that everyone on here is around too to offer support and smiles

LESLIE - WTG on getting yourself back on track and so excited about your 5k this weekend .. Im sure you will do great and well done even contemplating anything OTHER than walking it lol .. have in my mind that I want to do that on the 30th for my 5km Colour Run ... but unless I get fully healthy again I will just be sticking to walking it ..



So up and about early today .. gonna go jump in the shower then head out of the house for the first time all week lol .. hunny wants his Friday bakery treat (grrr) so I am going to face temptation and go and get it for him on my war to get the groceries I need for my baking and the weekend. For the first time in an age I had toast this morning for breakfast instead of my cereal and it was actually a nice change ... so off I go will pop back on later

As I lose weight I am getting more healthy every day. Even my mail order pharmacy thinks so. I had to get authorization for one of my prescriptions and I received a letter from them stating.

"We have reviewed the information provided and approved the request. The authorization has been entered into the system. This authorization for coverage is effective until 12/31/2099."

Evidently my life expectancy has improved a great deal. I am 69 years old and now the pharmacy thinks I need approval for this medication until (2099), the year two thousand and ninety nine

Hi everyone .. just a quick stop in .. full in the knowledge of wanting to hide away this week as the scales are definitely going to be going in the wrong direction .. caved in last night and had a big bowl of chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce and chocolate .. yep .. death by chocolate and 1000s of calories .. so whatever recovery I did from my beginning of the week indulge is out the window .. can't say Im over the moon about it .. but I think I needed this weeks blow out to get me back to being focused again.

Hunny took me out for brunch today .. first time we have done that in more than 6 months because I was always worried about the calories so it wasn't a comfortable experience for me ... but we went out and I had a mini baguette with chicken n brie .. a trim latte .. and a coffee cronut ... not planning on anything other than fruit for the rest of the day now lol .. but it was one of the most indulgent weeks I have had in well over 6 months and I know I went overboard .. but its over with now .. will just have to accept the result and go on from there. Im making hunny pancakes for dinner (his pick lol) but will stick to a bowl of lovely fresh fruit.

We are expecting the cyclone to touch base our way tonight or tomorrow .. we were supposed to get it last night or this morning .. but the weather has been pretty normal for Wellington .. windy sure .. but considering 120km winds aren't an unusual experience for here getting told that is what is doing damage up in Auckland we sorta shrug .. safe in the knowledge that our buildings are built with those sorts of winds in mind lol .. but we have the candles and bottles of water ready to use in case we lose power and have put everything that can blow away under cover. So I may be off for the next day but don't worry .. I think that Lucie (I think that is how they are spelling it lol) will have calmed down a lot by the time it hits us ... unfortunate not so lucky for the top of the North Island which did get a bit of damage .. on the plus side we definitely got enough warning to get prepared for this rare occurrence

So hopefully wherever you are you are safe and warm .. or cool if you prefer lol .. Ferris I hope you are all set down your way .. but really .. I don't think its going to even get to you with the power it hit Auckland .. cos it sure as eggs doesn't appear to have done much so far with us .. but we are apparently in the eye at the moment .. very muggy .. even got a little sleet on the window of the car on the way home from brunch

Hugs all!

PS - Ferris & Liv well done on your continued loss this week .. really great .. and Larry .. I love your post lol .. made me giggle ... had to share it with my hunny who cracked a smile too

NightKatt..

I am thinking of you (I too have gone thru several hurricanes - over my head and know how tense it gets!) I wil be saying a prayer for you and your family! I know.. but just in case.. I hope you have alot of water available!

I read your post too.. I too have gone thru the - Well I can have alittle of that.. I have been good. And I can eat that and then it happens a few days in the row (for me). I and I can see you have too.. learned that we can get back in the saddle (right away and not weeks later) and get back on our journey. I think that that is a lesson I have been learning and I bet you are too. You have done so well.. lord you have been shedding those lbs like crazy. I think sometimes our little voice in our head gets alittle more powerful and we give in alittle.. just a little.. but in a way its a try at maintaining I think too. Just know I know how you feel and send you a hug and tell you.. LIFE IS TO BE ENJOYED too Stay safe and snug in your house and my you NOT be in the wrong co ordinate... (for us its the NE if heading east or Northwest if heading west.... I wish alittle wind and alittle rain and no Tornados (what do you call those there?)

Hugs and comfort to you!
