Today is DH's birthday and we went out with some friends LATE last nite

I had to do something I haven't had to do in a LONG time. My friend, who has been SUPER supportive of my journey, kept pressuring me to have one drink. I finally said to her, "Why do you want to attempt to derail me?" She stopped and apologized. But wow. Sometimes people just don't think. What I choose to put in my body or not put in my body is so totally NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!!!!

My avatar pic (at left, in the pink) is an edit of a pic of DH and I in FL in December. I showed the same friend that (whole) pic and she said, "Wow, Lisa, you are so little. I don't think your head matches your body anymore."

This friend always has a lot of insight and perhaps some clairvoyance, as well. She gave me some ideas and some exercises to give the "old body" back to the universe. She thinks that is why I've been stuck (I'm not sure I've even discussed the stall with her - she just always seems to know stuff people haven't told her). Anyway, last spring on this forum, there was a conversation about being stuck/stalled at a weight due to not letting go of a life event/etc that occurred at that weight.

I had a private chat with someone about fear yesterday (damn scale). So now I'll be doing some work on letting go of whatever it is that I'm holding on to, that's holding the weight on me.

Whoever thinks it is ALL about calories in/calories out is definitely not in my camp.
I'm ramblimg. Hope I'm making a modicum of sense for someone!
Hi Lisa - You are making perfect sense to me, our minds have a lot to do with many things we can or cannot due....that's why I love this forum, there are so many different personalities and tips and atta girls (and boys that are so helpful to me and others as well I'm sure. Let's all keep on keeping on

Hi All -

Today was good. Hubby made me 2 scrambled eggs for breakfast, did some volunteering to find shelter dogs homes, and then laid out on the couch for awhile. Hunger is kicking my butt however. I'll try to get through it with water.

You can use them on chicken for chicken strips or coating on fish or I have crushed them and made crab cakes. YUM!!!!

Ugh! I'm really fighting the urge to have some snacks or sweets. Crackers, chocolate, anything. I've had all of my IP foods for the day, but for some reason I'm really wanting more. Fighting it, fighting it!! I'm ready to just curl up in my jammies and go to bed to end the day and fight the urge, but I have my youngest up still and my husband isn't home. I have no idea why I'm wanting to snack. I'm usually just fine at this time of night.

Jendilly, have a cup of tea or brush your teeth,those two things usually help. Remember, it is a craving not real hunger. You have done a fantastic job so far and giving in will knock you out of ketosis.

Thanks for the support. I have now brushed my teeth and am committed to not eating a single thing. It's hard to have some of the things I've usually snacked on in the past in my house right now. I still have crackers and other things on hand for my kids to put in their lunches or snack themselves. I've been soooo good for over 3 weeks, I'm not about to jeopardize it all now.

If the hunger is terribly bad, my coach tells me to have an extra packet.

Good morning all - I DID IT!! I made goal with yesterday's weigh in. I can't believe it, I weigh what I used to weigh when I was in my late 20's. I still struggle 'seeing' it tho, but I know it will come in time. Now the hard part starts - phasing off!

Jendilly - you hang in there, it's just a craving, you're fighting old habits which is some ways is like fighting an addiction, but trust me you can do this and it's so worth it on so many levels.

Lisa32989 - I know that for me, I have had to fight the whole notion that being thin will solve all my problems - my life will magically get better - and on some level knowing that's total BS so it's a big conflict. You've been such an amazing source of fortitude and support for everyone on this forum and you've made a significant impact on my ability to do this plan. You DESERVE this, so embrace it and know we're all here believing in you and cheering you on.
