I saw 120.7 today. Like I said, that lower number encouraged me to have 2 great DDs (Monday and Wednesday). I want the numbers to creep down some more so I'll eat my dinner tonight and then fast till a late dinner tomorrow. I know I deserve to feel great and I do for the most part, but I think I will feel fabulous at 117 or so, so I think I want to make it a reality. The positive thinking is important.

I think I may have uncovered a new tool in my tool box today:
I ate a rather large and satisfying (healthy, too) breakfast.
Then about 1PM I ate my 'main' meal. Even had a nice and kind of big dessert.
I feel very satisfied and have plenty of calories left for a very light supper ~ planning a hard boiled egg and some broth.
I will NOT have enough calories left for cocktails!
Essentially, in this routine, I will be starting my DD fast at about 2PM on my UD.
If this works as I hope it will I may continue it on UDs.
Thoughts?
I think we all have to find our unique pattern. I try to eat as little as possible until as late in the day as I can make it. Getting dinner together now at 9:20pm. Then go to bed full and hopefully sleep through the night.

So, I didn't care for the way the day unfolded. By bedtime I felt rather like I had 2 DDs in a row as I was hungry and dissatisfied.
Still working on this.
So much to think about.

I definitely self sabotage.
I was down to 127 in February, and then slowly let it all creep back. I know the catalyst was social events and alcohol. Then the "well, today is already blown, so I might as well make the most of it" mentality. Then I get aggravated that the weight is creeping on after all my hard work....then I just get depressed and over eat. Simple as that. Probably why I've been struggling with this for a solid 2.5 years.

For some time now I've been aware of my tendency to self sabotage. I know I do it, but I don't know exactly why. I could give some guesses, but I'm no psychologist. I see it coming before it happens, but somehow still end up feeling powerless to it for a few days.

When I hit my new low last Friday morning (hadn't seen that low of a number in a couple years) I suddenly had a feeling that I was headed into destruction mode. And I did. It was as if I couldn't stop it. And I'm having a tough time recovering this week.

I guess my question is: does anyone else do this? Shouldn't new lows be a big motivator to keep going, not a trigger to derail? If others do this, how do you stop it? Any tips and similar stories are welcomed!

Thanks in advance, JUDDD Buds
This is my issue completely. I'm one who is very uncomfortable with success. When I reach my goals it makes me extremely uncomfortable, almost a crazy feeling, and I sabotage myself. I've been fighting this for years. My husband thinks it has a lot to do with how I was raised. Whenever I felt good about myself my parents would be sure to bring me down a notch or two to keep me "humble." Now I make sure I do it to myself. It's a horrible struggle.

Back on December 1st I was just right that morning. I didn't weigh, but my clothes fit perfectly and I immediately started having that crazy feeling like I couldn't stand it. That night I binged and I've been battling for the past three months. I'm finally sick of it, so fighting back again. Today I started posting on the daily weigh-in thread so I will be publicly accountable. Hopefully it will help.

Self-sabotage is exhausting!

Exhausting is the perfect description.
We would never ever be as mean to anyone else as we are, sometimes, to ourselves.
Please post one or two of the wonders of YOU in the 'I'm Worth it' thread. I'd love to know you better.
Hugs.

You know, Pat, I can't even read that thread much less post in it. I tried to read it and it makes me feel very uneasy. I may try again at your suggestion.

Great post! And you're right, it is completely exhausting.

We're all in this together. We're all just working one day at time to be the best version of ourselves.

Who WE want to be. Not what others have placed upon us.

Love yourself for who you are ♥

It's hard, isn't it? I mean to love ourselves.
I know honey.
Dip your toe in there and tell us about you.
I'll start you out:
You are posting on a forum that will support you to the nth degree.
Big hugs.

This is truly a big key. I know exactly what I want to be, what I want to look like, where I feel the happiest. Leaving everybody else out of the equation may make it possible to get there and maybe even live there.
