Yes cici that is progress! I don't know much about JUDD but are mid days working? Are you losing wt. I can't imagine DD being easy for me either. That's why I like the Atkins framework. Hunger dissipates so much for me that I am forcing myself to eat at times.

Keep at it

jeaniem - good job day 4 - YAY
I hear you about the binging. I quit smoking too and didnt have no alcohol the entire pregnancy so I weaned myself of that too. Im always making myself more stress then necessary, overthinking things and worrying. Its emotional and physically exhausting. Well we are in a new year - time to make some changes and stick with it! ;-)
No not a binge, at least not my definition of a binge. Beats the heck out of candy bars and then throwing the towel in for the day, looks like you handled the day well.

I over think and obsess too, mostly about things totally out of my control I am always wanting to make sure everyone is happy at the expense of my own well being too much of the time. Gotta work on that.

Way to go on the 16 days, you have made past half way!!

Day 18/30

jeaniem - yes you right! The smallest thing throws me off track. I can either have it all or nothing. So the atkins bar sometimes help. Its not really how I want to fill my day, but eating even 6 bars is still better than a king size candybar.

NOTE TO SELF:

As the Dalai Lama once said, “If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.”

In other words, worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its possibilities.

How would your life be different if you stopped worrying and started truly doing what you are capable of doing? Let today be the day you free yourself from worthless worry, seize the possibilities and take effective action on things you can change.

Make a stand. Be proactive. Stop simply worrying about…

How liberating would it be to stop worrying?!! What a gift that would be. Maybe that should be one of my goals- worry less in 2013. I can't even imagine it can you be a parent and avoid worry? What a huge difference that would make in my life!!

I'm gonna think on this a bit. I never considered it ti be possible! What if is is

Yay, Shirl! You are doing great.

Feeling your pain, Invictus. Dust off and keep on.

I am feeling much better since changing plans. My muscles aren't quite right but greatly improved in just a couple days. No cravings at all. I think I am very sensitive to dietary imbalance and need to be careful nutritionally speaking to avoid going over the cliff. Another day, another lesson. Such is life.

DAy 9/30

My brain was trying to get me to eat the junk today, but I have held strong. I got out my vision board for motivation and focus, and then sat down with a blanket and started reading a new book.

Shirley you are rocking it Lady

Cici. Keep at it. You will find what works.

Invictus- love the dog park can't get in trouble there!

Jeanie way to stay strong

My motivation? The 3 skirts I bought from eBay that are just a bit too snug to wear I was hoping to bring them to Florida in February but March may be more realistic.

Must join this challenge again. December/January has been crazy eating for me, the binge monster is in full force. I am thinking of changing eating plans, I looked on the Lean for Life forum and it looks like a sensible plan so I bought the book for my Kindle. I will start tomorrow and update here often! Need to get back in charge of my eating and lose those holiday pounds!
