Wondering why the scale is creeping up. A couple years ago my body worked like a clock. I would know when ovulation would hit. now? Who the heck knows. Signs of ovulation approaching are there, but we will see. Eating is right. Exercise is right. It will all come together probably, but who knows. A post ovulation whoosh would be nice. Haven't seen one of those for awhile.

Do you weigh daily, Melissa? I would got bat-BEEP! insane if I looked at the scale daily.

If you are eating right and exercising right, then it WILL come together, so don't worry!

I do. It worked great when my body had a plan. I could see where'd it was going, what time of month it was, etc. now? It's much mover random. S, I just get confused. I know it will have to "give" s I have been 100% on plan, but this randomness is new to me. I've weighed daily for the two years I was losing and the last time I lost. Same patterns. Until peri menopause.

When I don't weigh in is when I eat out of control. I find it easier to cheat if I feel it won't be reflected on the scale. And I'm in denial mode when I totally stop weighing. That huge regain I had? I stepped on the scale only once in tht time and that was on a day I felt I could get back on plan.... Tht was 15 pounds lighter than I am now.

Maybe you need a different weighing plan now? I went years without weighing and now weigh daily but once my weight loss starts slowing I know I'm going to have to change that or it will make me crazy. Also, for my official weekly weigh in I do it on Mondays bc that is typically my highest day of the week. That way if I'm sneeking peeks during the week which I know I will, I should see improvement.

Ditto on the trail mix!

This week's obstacle will be time management. DH is away on business again this week - he's literally been gone M-F since February, and DS14 has a terrible evening practice schedule (6-9:30) for show choir as they get ready for their final concerts Fri and Sat nites. My swim team's practice schedule has also moved to the summer slots as of this week. I will call it a win if I get to two practices, and a major win if I get my butt out of bed and make it to the 7:30am one on Saturday as well!

I guess time management isn't the only troll under the bridge today! I am white-knuckling it through the siren song of the 2-oz bag of Cheezits in the vending machine upstairs. I have GOT to remember to leave my wallet in my car, dang it!!!! I only have 90 more minutes, and then I can flee the scene. I do NOT need an extra 320 calories!

Thanks! I'm determined not to go up there - but why oh WHY are they so ungodly compelling???? (Answer can be found in "The End of Overeating": because they are DESIGNED that way!). I'm deeply annoyed by how distracting this has been! I have work to do, dangit!

I continue to struggle....got hold of a can of pringles and twirlers and went to town, the whole time knowing it was a bad thing to do. I think trying to eat like someone else who had success skipping breakfast was not a good idea. All delaying eating did was make me hungrier at night and caused me to binge. I'm sad.

When I used to not eat breakfast regularly or only ate a small bowl of (empty carb type) cereal, I binged daily. I truly credit changing my breakfast habits with the start of changing my bad eating habits. I have only binged a few times in five weeks since starting to eat a substantial consistent breakfast daily. May not work for everyone but it works for me. Just consider this another thing to check off on the list of 'doesn't work for me'....each person is unique.
