Well, it's a safe bet to call my participation in this challenge a failure.

But I'm not beating myself up too much, after all I'm still here, still engaged, and the damage is about fifteen pounds (that's how much I'm up from my lowest during the challenge). It sucks, but I've done so much worse so many times before. So many times I've hit this point of regain, being so very disappointed in myself, considering myself a "failure" and just given in, and made the situation so much worse.

In fact, much more than a goal weight my goals are around "staying engaged" in managing my weight long term. And over the past several weeks of struggle I've been so tempted to say I've "failed" and reset my counter. But in fact even when I've had a bad day, or a string of bad days, I have never completely checked out, never completely given up, and so even though I am deeply uncomfortable (because I am a perfectionist) I am counting this struggle and upswing period as still being engaged. As of today, I've been at this for 284 days (this time... I've been at this for 45 years overall!)

------------------

Ok, so here are the numbers


My major commitments :

- weigh in daily (I already do this)
- step count over 10,000 at least 1 day a week
- count calories/carbs at least 2 days a week
- no dairy other than grass fed butter

SW : 189.0
CW : 193.6 (+4.6 wrong direction)

194.0 June 23
194.0 June 24 - good low carb day, and back on track
193.8 June 25
193.6 June 26
193.6 June 27 - ah, finally a string of good days all together - now, to add a weekend to that!

Right now I'm wondering if I can focus on keeping the June "gain" number as small as possible.

Also I am seeing the deviation I did for our weekend in Bilbao in a different light - it was the first of many steps off the path, and they've become progressively harder to recover from, and more frequent to boot.

I'm hoping I can take the period of this challenge as a real learning of how I'll need to approach such things in the future.

Sue- I would go and eat the cheese and toppings but leave the crust, you still get the taste of pizza, and free lunch off the company, but your carbs stay reasonable. It is kinda hard to track for calories though. Get your butt back in gear and you may still make your 4th goal, much of that is likely water weight.

Sarah- I fully agree that staying in the headspace is a huge part of the battle. Looking back over you numbers it looks like when you go on holiday or friends come to visit you use it as an excuse to eat off plan. I understand the impulse 100% but you seem to be struggling to get back on track after. If it was once or twice a year it wouldn't be too bad, but here it was 3 times in 2 months. Can you plan ahead better? There are usually so many things that can be adapted to keto on restaurant menus if you ask for small changes. And everything else will be there to eat later. I remind myself of that a lot, yes the fries are delicious, but I can always find fries later. etc. Maybe pick 1 or 2 big events a year you want to go off track for and plan how much or little leeway you want to give yourself. IDK just some ideas

And you aren't 15lbs up, you are 12. So much of that could be water weight just waiting for you to get a nice streak going.

Both of you at least keep posting, we are here to support each other and we can't encourage you if you run away and hide!

Thanks.

Yes, actually I think part of the problem of my 3 bad weekends was that I do usually do just fine in one planned weekend or day off track and then getting back on track immediately. I did fine with that at Christmas, and actually if you look at the numbers I did manage that after my trip to Bilbao which had been carefully planned for.

I don't usually give in to the travel or visitors as an excuse - not listed here are the many times I DIDN'T give in. I suspect some of the reason I repeatedly caved in is just fatigue of dieting, another is probably a good amount of sabotage - I am more "visible" at the low 180s than I am in the 190s - I know that from weight loss many years ago, in the 180s I got asked out, in the 190s I could hide. I feel as obese at 190 as I do at 235 too. So getting close to my first goal of 179 (I got to 182) I was getting a lot of comments about my weight loss suddenly and I think that freaked me out more than I wanted to admit.

I think I really need to work on understanding this, because I do not feel good about myself or my health at my current weight (even though I know it's a good deal better for me than my weight a year ago). So I still want to lose more weight, and that means I'll be needing to stare down that fear, address it, and either live with the fear or get over it somehow.

Anyway, I do plan to stay checked in long-term, including staying accountable here.

Sue - so glad my slip ups could help - I am glad my finding the courage to share the gory details helped you claw yourself back too... We will do this.

Aww ladies - remember you haven't failed until you quit trying!!

We ALL fall off the wagon from time to time - no one is perfect - and in the journey we can't get so wrapped up in numbers and carbs and calories that we forget to live too! We ARE more than numbers on a scale, or a mesuring tape!

It's striking a balance right?

We all know that if we go off of low carb we will regain what we have lost and we'll have to start back at square one or worse.

So what's important is to find a way to balance our lives with our diet.

Sue - have the pizza!! Skip the crust! Bring something along to snack on to help fill the void b/c we all know pizza toppings only go so far lol

Sarah - enjoy your time with family and friends - and you are so right, i really believe 99% of this is all mental. That's where the battles take place for us.

I have lost 30 some pounds and still feel like a whale - and I have a feeling I'll always feel that way b/c I have lost down before and still always see myself as HUGE! Even though now I look back at pics from then and wanna kick myself for being so stupid.

But no matter how far or long our journey to our goal weight is - this journey will be with us always, it is not a destination, because even when we arrive, we know how quick we can regain - we have to find ways to stop sabattoging ourselves and enjoy the lives we live within the frame of our ---- NOT diet --- way of eating, lifestyle.

You ladies can do this!! Just take it one meal at a time. Don't worry about the previous one, or the future ones. Just the one you are having right now and make it on plan.

Sarah - i so understand the mental hurdles! I think one of the reasons I regained when I was at 202 was because I can't remember being lower than 200 and I think part of me was scared as crap and it was easier to eat the things that comfort me then the things I was losing on.

We can all do it! we are in the last stretch, it doesn't matter how close or far you are from your original goal, set your mind to it this week and see how far you can get today til friday!

Hi - Just wanted to check in and encourage everyone to keep going!

Pixi and Ali -kudos for being awesome cheerleaders!!
Sue - Congrats on picking yourself up and dusting yourself off!! The journey is not perfect but just look at how far you have come!! Remember 100 pounds off is no joke!! And remember what my doc said last year....10 pounds off is a benefit and you are 10 times that!!

Sarah - didn't you do a fat fast before one of your weekends....I think the restriction of the fat fast might lead to "rebound" eating!! (At least for me...)

Jessie - wondering how it went with the cheese fries...I have food porn swimming around my head everyday .....the struggle is real!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!

I think it is safe to say I did not do well during this particular challenge, for no reason other than my on-going depression and lack of commitment. The summers are so rough for me -- weird, I know, but the high heat where I live absolutely zaps me, and the evenings are spent in front of the AC with a book. Days are spent in an air-conditioned office. Have re-committed myself, however, and even stocked the frig with some decent food. Who's up for a Labor Day challenge?

sue- its coming off, just be patient with it! And drink lots of water.

ok lizzy- The summer does the same for me, the heat makes me not want to exercise at all! the last month my exercise has been dwindling from 4+ a week to maybe twice a week because of the heat. Labor day is the next challenge we have discussed but I don't think a thread has been made yet

lulu- how is it going with you! where have you been huh? are you gonna join us for the next challenge?

I went on a hike yesterday. 2.81 miles of pure up then down then up again. It was supposed to be closer to 5 miles but I got a face full of something and had a bad reaction in my sinuses and lungs, I could breathe but not deep enough to navigate all the hills. it forced our group to split up, one of my friends stayed with me and the other 2 hiked back to the car and met us at a parking lot closer to where we had been. I felt so bad I definitely had the "ugh of course the fat girl can't do it when the 3 skinny girls are fine" type self doubting nasty thoughts. Even thought it obviously started after we walked through a clump of something hanging in the trail, and then I had that feeling in the sinuses/lungs that was similar to after using eucalyptus oil or vicks vapo rub, like the oils some how made it IN the sinuses. but instead of opening them up like with vicks it felt like it was making it harder to process air. It faded away to almost nothing after 30 minutes of fresh air and was fully gone after I washed my face so I didn't worry about seeing a dr or anything.

I think my head went there so easily because I was already the slowest of the group. Going up kills my speed so bad, and I'm clumsy so going down I slowly pick my way down so I don't fall and break something.

anyways, after I got home I had no energy and didn't want to cook or go out, and the only places open were pizza and chinese. so we ordered pizza, I planned to get thin crust and eat the toppings/cheese only but my hubby forgot and it came on regular crust and i caved. so now I may have to suffer through keto flu and flushing off water. If I can stay on track til the 4th maybe I can enter the labor day challenge at the lower end of my current weight range. I have entered every challenge on an upswing. though, the 4th is the 4th which usually means drinking and drinking means water weight. We will see i guess

S/C/G: 353/see ticker/175

Height: 5'8"

Default

Last weigh in was on 06/28 --- 318.6, yesterday the scale gave me like 5 different readings between 317 and 319 so I just stayed off it yesterday and today lol I'll get back on tomorrow.

I've been all on plan, except I have not been drinking water like I need to - trying to get that back on focus.

It's almost noon here and I have about 12 hours worth of work left to finish today - it's end of month insanity for me, I hate this week every month. I've done good to stay on target for what I eat, but excercise is out the window.

July 4th goal is 318 so I'm super close.

Keep going ladies!!!!! Final stretch!!!!
