Default What has been your lowest food moment since starting IP?

At the family Halloween party I was hungry without the right foods with me. Although I had eaten an hour before the event, it went long and I was hungry before it was over. All I could eat there were celery and cauliflower and I felt that food anger coming on. Resentment that I didn't get to have food be part of my enjoyment of the evening. The low point was when I licked the rather gross artificial cheese off a couple of Doritos chips- then threw away the chip. Felt pretty pathetic at that point!

It's not usually too bad at all to eat on plan but family events with lots of homemade food (and apparently some Doritos) are hard to get through.

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!

Lowest food moment for me, was day 2 and 3 on IP, during the carb withdrawl. I havent fallen off the wagon in 100+ days ... but I do have pizza fantasies every so often ... but I just keep those in my head and not in my mouth!

Licking a doritos chip does sound funny though.

I over-planned at the beginning so I wouldn't have these moments. I knew exactly what I was going to do food-wise in any social or family gathering.

It really helps on this plan to stay positive, plan ahead, and have a Plan B.
I'm not a fast food eater so the day I forgot my lunch, got a RTD EAS shake at Walgreens and a McDonald's salad was a pretty yuck lunch but it got me thru. Now I have packets at work, in my lunch bag, in my car, and in DH's car.

I took some food to a wedding reception once but I didn't prepare it at my house (I was out of town). It didn't turn out right and I had to throw some of it away but since I overplanned, I still had plenty, I just had to re-adjust my attitude over what I thought I was going to have.

I also ended up at a car repair wayyyyy longer than I thought one day & all my packets were in my car. I was so headachy and almost sick I came close to asking them to lower the car from the lift, so I could get some "medicine" I mistakenly left in there.

The only other low point was very early-on when I took the broccoli-cheese soup with pureed broccoli to work for lunch. We all have different tastes and that soup is inedible tasting to me . I believe it is the ONLY day I actually threw my lunch away. It may have been another McDonald's salad day or I think I got some steamed veggies at a chinese carry-out and had one of my emergency packets.

I quickly learned what I liked or only took tried-and-true items to eat away-from-home so I'd know I'd find my meal palatable.

I've been on plan for a very long time with only minor irritations till last month. I was having diet fatigue and started to feel jealous of all the "normal" food people around me. I've been enjoying fall and all the sports that come with it. This particular Sunday I was just over it, some skinny girls were trying to get me to have a few drinks and I was feeling sorry for myself. I was good until bar food arrived. Chicken fingers and a bunch of other fried food. I'm usually fine w a bar but not this day. End of story I ended up making an excuse to leave for a little. I did cry in my car but I didn't derail and it was enough to get my head back in the game.I was able to go back and enjoy the rest of the day strong. Who cries over food? Yup I did.

Early on in the diet I cried over French fries. I just wanted those damn things so bad but I knew if I ate them that I would have to start all over again.

I have had a few. I definitely have food issues in the sense I used to be a little bit of a binger and a food hoarder. Since IP I was at a party with lots of appetizers, I literally could not converse with anyone because I was staring at the food. I was mesmerized by it. I used to take too much food at parties like this because I was afraid my favorites would be gone if I wanted seconds, and to not be able to have any was a super weird moment for me. I also used to drink a daily starbucks Iced chai tea. This was my drink, the people at my local starbucks knew me I came in so often for it. It was just habit that on my way to work I would go. I have since starting IP, ended up in the drive-through line and either ordered a bottle of water, or ordered my chai, cried and promptly threw it out. There was something comforting about getting that chai, just the whole "act" of going to starbucks. I am totally a food ritualizer, and it has been hard to break those habits. But here I am, a few months in, almost 25 lbs down despite emergency surgery in Sept. So I will keep pressing on. I swear the best part of this diet is how crappy going into ketosis is because that's what keeps me on track, I can't cheat or I will feel awful.

Thanks. Its still hard for me to believe as well. The before/now pic was taken in may. My most recent pic is my avatar. I have been at a stall for about 3 months now. I'm still hoping I can drop 10 more lbs to 125 but my body is resisting. I just keep plugging along. Hoping to keep the tears at bay.

When you say you've been at a stall for 3 months, do you mean you have been doing Phase 1 the whole time? Or have you been in maintenance for the past 3 months? You look great!

All of you guys who cried over your food and still resisted it, you have no idea what respect I have for you. Resisting temptations was never my strong point....hence my huge admiration to you!

My birthday in early September. I had been on IP for a little over 2 months at that point and had tried to convince myself that it would be okay to have a "cheat day" for my birthday - either a nice greasy burger and fries with a beer or a big dim sum meal with friends. But, 2 months in and I had lost close to 30lbs, I realized that I just couldn't do it. It took me too long to get to that point and I was feeling really good.

On the day of my birthday, my co-workers had bought 3 different cakes (we celebrate birthdays at the office) and someone had brought in a fruit tray - they thought it was healthy and I could have it. As I stood there eating my IP chocolate cake with WF marshmallow topping, I had to fight the urge to throw it out and grab a piece of each of those cakes and a big pile of fruit! I went home that night and cried a little. But I know next year, when I'm rocking smaller sizes and am healthier - I'll enjoy a small piece of cake that much more.

A true stall. I do a combo of P1 and P2, most days its P1. I have talked through any different options to get the scale moving again. Currently waiting on bloodwork to make sure all is ok, esp w my thyroid. I am not accepting that this is were my body wants to be. I know I can get past this and see the 120's. I had a **** of a time getting out of the 150's too.
