Good morning
I let my emotions get to me a week ago, first I broke the nearly new tractor, then it was stuck out behind a fence with no way to easily get it out, The next day my dog was refusing food again and I let it get to me and I picked up some ultra light beer and had popcorn. Big no no's for me going low carb. I stopped logging food for a couple of days which turned into a week. I also stopped getting on the scale.to0.
Today I made myself accountable and got on the scale, to my surprise I am down another 2 lbs. I guess in the whole scheme I wasn't filling myself with junk food, fast food, or quick and easy. But just because I got away with it will not allow me to repeat.
I have a Fitbit Versa 2 that I have had for 3 1/2 years and it is not holding a charge so I rewarded myself with the newer Versa 4. I have it charging now and I will get it set up before I leave this morning. DBF birthday is Wed and his daughter is having a cook out this afternoon. His family is very nice and have been so welcoming to me.

Good Morning, Everyone!

I'm going out of town tomorrow and will return late Friday. I won't take my laptop, only my phone. Any posts will be brief. As a church family we are going to see the Ark and Creation museum. I'm praying that I don't feel too stressed. I spoke to my Dr. a couple weeks ago about my binge eating and how I have been feeling. She called me in a prescription. I have never taken a medication like that before. I tried it for three days. I had no desire to binge eat but it was too strong for me. I didn't sleep for three days. I sent her a message that I was stopping the medication and was considering the lowest dose of the medication. I was wanting to try again to see how I would do on my own. Saturday was a failure. I'll see how I do on this trip. I have a follow up in two weeks. I really hate going on medication for this stupid issue that I am having. I know this is stupid and I have the knowledge I need. My problem is when I get around my ex-friend she gets on my nerves. It makes no sense. If someone can explain it to me or give me words of wisdom, please do. I don't want the friendship back, I don't wish her any harm, only the best, I just don't want to be around her. Her DH is retiring in December and they will be moving soon after that so this is not a permanent situation. I even feel stupid talking about this. I admit it makes no sense.

Steps from yesterday: 5,576

Have a Blessed day and stay safe and healthy!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

September 4

Matthew 7:7-8
'Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.'

Barry never really believed that he'd lose weight. That was probably his problem. His heart was never in it. Whenever he got the least bit discouraged, he'd immediately give up. His friends tried to offer support, but Barry always came up with excuses why he should give up his diet. If we want to lose weight, we need to believe in ourselves. Self-doubt is a killer. If we lack faith in ourselves, then perhaps we can overcome it by the faith we have in God. God can fill us with a self-assurance that allows us to do almost anything we set our minds to. Push aside doubt. Be filled with the confidence of God.

Today's thought: With God's help, I'll knock off a few pounds!

181 pounds today! I was 179.9 but then I went to my mom's and had a hamburger and some chocolate cake and gained 2 back..I got here by fasting. Then I went to the grocery store and bought all my favorite things (well not EVERYTHING) like supplies for bologna sandwiches, hot dogs (I sure do love my processed meats) ramen, peanut butter and jelly, chicken nuggets -all foods for a five year old I guess. Plus some carrot juice which I love and a big vegetable tray to make up for not getting any vegetables. My idea was to just have one small meal a day until I run out of food - then I'll go back to my plan. I was just sick of eating the same old things you know?

As for my novel, I'm still totally stuck on what will be the turning point. Hitting rock bottom was a good idea but what would that be for my character - being 300 pounds? This fast seems to have been a turning point for me but there's no real psychological explanation for it except I wanted to break through to the 170s so bad that all I ate one day was a piece of chocolate and somehow lost like seven pounds.

Yangtzer, I love Earl Grey. I also love chai. Vanilla Chai. I do not know about you but I need an energy pill. I take Green Tea energy or thermal fat burner. I overdid the cookies with my tea yesterday but we had been at the lake all day...we are our own worst enemy.

Gone astray, so good that you got the fence fixed and got your privacy. I also write. I haven't been inspired since my ex stole my journals and tried to use them against me though. Awesome about fit bit. I wonder how I would look on one of those?

ciecie, im with you on that. Emotional eating is a stronghold for me

Diana, this sounds complicated. I dont know the whole story. My view is that we should always follow the scripture UNLESS what is purported to be scripture GOES AGAINST another scripture. I get into plenty of trouble at church for pointing out that a certain view is not scriptural or line upon line. Not one tittle or iota will fail its just the translators can be biased.

now...about your friend. If she is living contrary to lhe Word, we are supposed to rebuke in love and seperate. The Bible does not teach tolerance among the brethren. Tolerance among the UNBELIEVERS but not brethren. I will pray for you.i pray for reconciliation for you two if it is possible. I also know Jesus came with a Sword.

girl, I pray for discomfort and bloating to stop. When I overindulge, OMAD makes me feel better.

so I spent all day at the lake...very active. Carrying boats, canoing with boys...and I woke up heavier then ever at 204. My muscle mass is also the highest it has been though at 129.4 on the scale.

I also did a mini dance workout...so I got in PLENTY of exercise. I was starting from all the activity though and I overdid the shortbread cookies. They are 60cs each and I ate 6 of them.

I feel pretty good despite being so heavy. I am going to keep working out and hope eventually the muscle will start helping me lose some of my fat weight.

Sorry to hear that Ciecie.

Girl81 I am retaining a ton of water as well.

I can't believe I got to 179 pounds and now all the way back to 186 again. Binge, fast, binge, fast. I'm just getting so desperate what with fall and then winter coming around - meanwhile my sister is holding in the 150s. I just want to not feel like a huge fat blob at Christmas (even though a lot of people in my family are overweight...). A whole year and I've only lost around 10 pounds. In an entire year. I would see a therapist but I can't freaking drive. Well I have a license and a car but I have a phobia of driving most places so I just let my boyfriend drive me everywhere. I feel so helpless, lost, and FAT.
