The crazy scale...

Yesterday was my first official WI and I only loss 1.5#s. Really?! After talking with my coach I realized my salt intake was too much. Of course I already suspected that as I did a lot of the recommended 1/4 teaspoon salt with 8 oz water to remedy headaches. Even though I didn't lose as much as I expected/hoped for I was not detoured by it. I know this is a great plan for me, especially giving my pancreas a break. I've indulged in far to many carbs (especially pastas and sweets) for for to long. And I'm excited about the health benefits, like stabilizing my blood sugar and regulating my hormones. I dedcided to jump on the scale today first thing and I'm down -8#. I'm really looking forward to my official weigh in next Wednesday!

Found some other nice parents to sit with and had a nice time.
Wednesday morning we had breakfast in the college cafeteria - the line up of doughnuts was impressive...again, looked longingly for a minute, grabbed some hardboiled eggs and ate some of the egg white with my shake. No cravings, no caving!
It helped that i was wearing my size 10 jeans for the first time


Hopefully the scale will be happy with me!

Go to :
http://www.idealcoaching.tv/details.html

At the beginning of this page, there's a video titled " Ketosis Is Your Secret Weapon".... then farther down another "Delicious Phase 1 Salad Recipe".... then farther down " Restricted & Unrestricted Ideal Protein Foods" (that's the same link I posted above).

Scroll down on the link still further, and you'll see a grey bar which says "To Watch The First 14 Videos Click Here ---->" If you click through you should see those 14 videos, all on different subject.

Be sure and scroll down the page at each video, because often there's a second video there called 'For Extra Credit'.

So I am getting really dissapointed in myself. As some of you might have read I went to Valdez for a week (on a boat fulltime) and was battling sea sickness. I ended up eating a lot of extra protien, which hasnt given me a problem... its the restricteds!!! I ate two a day on the boat in an effort to battle the nasea and I made myself even more miserable by feeling really guilty about it.

Now that I am home I am having a hard time NOT eating two restricteds in a day. I am really struggling here.... I feel ridiculous to be this close to goal and I am letting this happen! UGH!!! Im pretty disgusted with myself right now.

So far I was able to have two days in a row that I did not give in to the second restricted. But today I caved again!!! I had found a restricted in one of my bags that I brought on the trip with me. Instead of putting it away, out of sight, I left it sitting on the bar next to where I eat dinner.... The dinner I made was really spicy, and well it went downhill from there. So mad at myself!

These are some of the things I have been doing to keep myself from having more than one:
I have not gone in to my store and resupplied since being back, I have even run out of my chocolate drinks.
I have taken all of the restricteds that I had at work brought them home. I only take one to work with me so I have no choice.
I have made sure to put them out of sight at home... out of sight, out of mind right?
I have been keeping busy. I work all day, come home and then leave a half an hour later to bring my son to football practice, I stay there with him until 8pm, I come home and make dinner and go to bed.

I know that the only thing that will really help me is my own will power, but I want to set myself up for success. What I listed above are some of the steps I have taken in order to make myself more successful. Does anyone have any suggestions, other than throwing all the restricteds out (too expensive for that), that I am not already doing?

Question: Why are nuts bad for us on this diet? Is it the natural amount of carbs in them? Or is it the fat content?

Thank you for any help or encouragement in advance. Oh and I dont think I need tough love, lol I'm already doing that for myself....

Im goingt to repost this in tomorrows thread once it is made.
