Did Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance today....I'm a few days behind cause of this darn dead leg induction flu feeling I've been having. I was able to get through it a lot better than yesterday, but still got dead legs quickly & early on. No carb takes some getting used to for me...man alive! Felt really good though, glad it's done! Sweated a lot & heart rate skyrocketed. My face was so pink & flushed after! I remember I used to be able to do the moving push ups when I was in the 130's....now that I'm 160 I can't do em. I can go about halfway down, but that's not good enough & won't get the best results. I get weak very easily. It's like doing pushups with a 30 lb weight on your back! all the more motivation to get this extra weight off fast!!!

How wonderful! Although size 28 here in the states would mean that you weigh like 300 pounds... =P

I still have several pairs of jeans that my hubby bought me before I gained weight again. Hopefully by end of year I can wear them.

I also eat what I'm served at the once a month lunch meeting where the hostess prepares the meal. I did learn at the last one that I need to have protein in the car in case the meal is vegetarian. All those carbs without protein is disaster. Anyway, I stay strict 95% of the time! My granddaughter's birthday party was Saturday and she didn't care or even notice that I did not have cake and ice cream!
WOW that is AMAZING control Mim, maybe that's why I don't go out much......then again, I have no friends

Bratty, how did you do it? You're lucky to be single, if only the ball and chain would consider quitting.........

I have a ball and chain. I made him quit with me.
Really, we were both ready. It was hard hard hard and I think the first 6 months after that were the worst. I felt like I was on a hormonal rage for way too long. It has been 4 years now and I am SO happy we did it together. I do not think I could have did it alone, especially with another smoker in the house.

Yes eating a balanced healthy diet with treats with friends IS the perfect 'normal' person diet, for those who have no control or bingeing issues, but as you said yourself, you do. What's going to be different this time on Stills than all the other times? Wanting it a little bit more isn't enough-yes for the weight loss part but not for maintenance. Sugar to some people is like a drug, one bite and you're hooked right back in.
I've thought about this a lot(I'm really at maintence now or at least I want to be ready). I read posts over a year ago from a LCF that had quoted from The Thin Commandments(I know I sound like I'm plugging this book!). He said that there are some foods that you will just have to 'box out' as in never have them. You will have to do everything in your power(for that, there are strategies!) to avoid eating them. He even went so far as to say if that means buying a lockabke box with a combination code then so be it. At the time I thought this was the most depressing thing I think I had ever read. I thought there is no way I can (or would want to) live my life like that. This is not normal behaviour. I wanted the normal healthy relationship with food, that I could enjoy everything in moderation(I do however want lc/Paleo to be my woe).But that I could have chocolate or whatever on occasions with friends. It would be depressing and 'no life' if I couldn't enjoy things like other people can. But exactely therein lies the problem---I can't enjoy things the way others can(otherwise I wouldn't have been 250lbs)
I know myself that I have finally come to the realisation that that thought isn't that depressing after all. It's just fact. I don't have a normal relationship with food and I never will. I also think that when you have a bad relationship with food it is something you always will have, it's not something that can be 'unlearned'. Again that sounds like a depressing thought, but if you really accept it, get strategies to help you, it's actually quite freeing.
Again it comes down to acting like an adult, accepting that no, it's probably not fair, why can others enjoy food and not me? Well that's just the roll of the dice unfiortunately.
I promise you, I'm not 'preaching' to you. I'm as messed up as anyone. But I know that I need to deal with this head on. Which would I rather, to be thin and in control and happy or fat with all the self loathing that brings. Will eating like a 'normal' person give my that happiness? No because I can't eat like that.
My 'weight' history-I had Anorexia as a teenager, gained a normal amount of weight, but then started the classic restrict/binge/purge cycle. It kept my weight stable at just under 140lbs. Then I had to take a s**load of hormones, gained 34lbs in over a month. After that I hated myself, so I comfort ate, gave up the gym. Interestingly the real classic binging and purging stopped. (I also lost my Dad at the time so I think I just didn't have the energy to do it).
I started QWL totally positive in the knowledge that it would work. Loved stepping on the scale, measuring etc. I never saw it as a hardship. I had planned cheats-2or3 candies at Halloween, my Christmas dinner and some chocolate, Cadbury Creme egg at Easter, ice cream on vacation. I enjoyed each one and hopped right back on. I thought I had put all demons behind me, that I was gonna be abke to eat normally, that I had it 'down' Then just the way the weight loss had 'clicked' something 'unclicked'. I don't know if it was that I got comfy but since around April2010 I can't do the 'one treat' thing. One piece of chocolate leads to another.....and it's no joke when I say I could eat 3or4 3oz bars abd want more. That leads to the purging. If I don't purge then I know I'll gain so it's a vicious circle. And purging leads to real self-loathing. And again if I don't do it then for weeks or months I'm fine but once I start it takes a while to stop.
Ok I've never been a yo-yo dieter, and TTC is aimed at yo-yo dieters, but I do know that once the 'binging' is there or the bad relationship with food is there, then it will never ever go. There is no magic wand. We will never be able to go back to eating like 'normal' people or we will most certaintly gain the weight back. If you read TTC he says that the 10% or less of people who keep the weight off accept this fact and are happier with this knowledge.
So much of what you say rings true. Probably why it makes me so uncomfortable. Truth hurt eh? I like to think of myself as a strong woman and the thought that I can not control my eating habits feels weak to me. Thank you for taking the time to share your truths and experience with me/us. I think we can all learn for each other. I think I will get book and give it a read. Maybe it will help get my head in the right spot.

Different strokes, folks..........one day something will click for you.

IMHO for me its going to stay this way. There is no normal eating, just skinny eating.

Make cranberry sauce with splenda, make a green bean casserole, don't eat stuffing, sweet potatoes, and make a low carb pumpkin dessert for yourself. You will thank yourself!
I found a few meatzza recipes I am going to try for our get together on the 6th. This way they can all have their Dominos Pizza and I can stay on track.

What size is that in USA? If I was a size 28 I would cry. I want to cry being a 16. 16s are loose and 14s squeeze me to death.

I know, my eyes about fall out of my head when I notice a sale sign. I haven't had weed since college. That is probably expensive now too.
